    31.2 huge appeal for lbw, turned down. Will they refer it? Yes, they will. Tossed up on middle and off and fizzing along straight, off the track. Watto was well forward, but the replays suggest that was crashing into middle and off, three-fourths of the way up. No evidence that it hit bat before pad either. Yep, the third umpire helps Umpire Kettleborough overturn it and Zim have got two in two right today. 140/2
    18.5 Zimbabwe's first ever referral now. Utseya lands this back of a length outside off and it comes in gently with the angle, and then sharply with the spin. Haddin looks to work it through square leg, casually off the back foot, and is hit in front of middle. It was hitting middle and leg. Not sure why Asoka de Silva said not out. The third umpire overturns the verdict. Zimbabwe have struck. 61/1

    44.6 bowled him! White needed to go for it, and he picked a slower ball to try and hit through midwicket. He was early on the shot and the ball cannoned into middle and leg stump off the bottom edge. 207/4
    48.1 and that's why! Bowled him! Hussey charges down the track and aims for the heave down the ground. Price drags it shorter, bowls it quicker and keeps it dead straight. Hussey misses by a long way, and Price hits the stumps. 241/5
    49.1 Mpofu is very, very lucky. He bowled a rubbish ball, a full toss on leg stump. Smith could have smashed it, anywhere. Instead he sort of chipped it off his pads and straight to the fielder on the deep square leg boundary. 254/6

    11.2 bowled him! Taylor tried to work the ball on the leg side from his crease and closed the face of the bat. He missed and Tait sped the ball through and grazed the pad before uprooting middle stump. Nothing special, just straight, fast and very effective. 40/3
    5.4 this was a likely dismissal. Coventry was edgy against the short ball and tried to pull this one from outside off stump. The top edge swirled high in the air and the ball descended in the region of silly mid-off, where Lee was waiting to take the caught and bowled 22/1
    10.3 he's given Watson some catching practice at first slip. Taibu tried to guide the ball towards third man by opening the face but the line of the short of a length ball was far too close to the body. He ended up steering it off the face towards Watson's right. He bent swiftly to take a low catch 40/2
    12.3 Johnson bowls a full, fast and straight ball that thuds into Ervine's pads as he tries to play across the line and falls over a touch. Johnson roars an appeal but Asoka de Silva is unmoved, again. Haddin is adamant that it should be reviewed. Replays show that it's pretty plumb. Thank goodness for the UDRS today. Asoka's had a shocker. 44/4
    21.2 Elton's gone. Krejza throws this up well outside off and he goes for the lap-sweep. Too ambitious, he had to bring that around from a long way off, and ended up getting gloving a top edge that popped up on the off side. Haddin runs across and pouches it, then hurries back to effect a stumping, just in case. Elton was already walking away though. 88/5
    24.6 Tait's blown Williams away with 144.7 kph of unplayable pace. Almost a yorker again, from wide of the crease from round the wicket, homes the guided missile in on the line of off stump. Williams has played back to everything, think he'd make a good playback singer. He hangs deep in the crease again and hangs the bat out feebly. It took the edge and flew away at inexplicable pace towards the right of Watto at slip and he does real well to bend down and pluck it low. On second view, it was more a full length ball than a yorker. Still, unplayable. 96/6
    27.2 Regis perishes to a strange shot, trying to pull a length ball tossed up around middle and leg. He may have played forward to it, he should have played with a straight bat. Instead, he stayed back and looked to pull. It gripped and straightened, whizzed past the bat and thudded into the area above his bent back knee. Plumb. 104/7
    39.2 caught at midwicket. Utseya leans forward to play the ball on the leg side and ends up lobbing it nice and slowly towards Ponting at midwicket. He has a hurt pinky but that was a ridiculously easy catch 153/8
    42.4 caught behind! Johnson slants a good length ball across Cremer, giving him some width. Cremer chases it, playing away from his body, and gets an edge which Haddin catches by diving low and to his right 167/9

    46.2 caught! And that's the end of the game. Johnson pitches one closer to the batsman around off stump and gets it to straighten ever so slightly. Mpofu pushes forward at it and gets an edge which Haddin takes pretty easily. 171/10
