    0.5 Kamran's caught one! huge blow for Zimbabwe, Taylor falls. He walked forward into a drive, pushing his hands out at an outswinger. A thick edge nestles safely in the keepers' gloves 5/1
    1.6 There's another one! Wrapped right infront of leg stump and he's given out. Chakabva thinks about the review - it could well have been slipping down leg with the movement and on the angle - but decides against it. Zimbabwe in early trouble here 5/2
    12.4 gone! The crucial wicket falls, Taibu's gone. The ball was fuller and he was trying to lift it over the off side. It hits the toe of the bat, however, looping to Afridi, who's run around from mid-off. 43/4
    5.2 what a catch! Sibanda steps forward to defend, uncertain of which way the ball will wobble. It comes in on the angle but then jags away and bounces, taking a healthy edge and flying to first slip where Misbah tumbled to his right to pluck the ball out of thin air 13/3
    29.3 end of Ervine, bowled him, that one kept a touch low and Ervine looks to cut, he misses and the ball crashes into middle and off, absolutely no footwork from Ervine, he is caught in the crease by a delivery he should have been forward to, he pays the price, Pakistan are delighted 103/6
    23.5 there's the wicket, a googly that wasn't picked up by the batsman, a short of length ball that comes in after pitching outside off, batsman goes for the booming drive, inside-edged and ends up popping it back to the bowler, Afridi has his first 84/5
    not out
    39.4 a second catch for Akmal, a short ball from Gul, Utseya goes for the pull, top-edges the high-speed delivery, and it pops up towards backward square leg, it's in the air long enough for Akmal to race across and pouch it 151/7
