    5.5 and finally the wicket. Amjad waves his bat at a full ball angled across him, away from his body, and the edge flies to second slip, who takes it well, close to his body, falling to his right 26/1
    10.5 gone! Another short ball, this time it's outside off, rising, and he has to drag that pull from well over shoulder height. Only manages a thin edge through to Taylor 40/2
    27.1 and he strikes immediately. Down the track comes Chandran, goes for the big hit down the ground. Doesn't middle it at all, and pops a simple catch to mid-off 122/3
    30.1 taken! That's plucked out of the air by Williams, diving to his right from point, as Khurram fails to keep this cut down. It was short and wide, but Charara got that to bounce a little more than the batsman expected 134/4
    41.4 Williams breaks through. Patil makes room to go inside-out over cover, wasn't quite to the pitch of the ball, and he ends up scooping it straight into cover's hands 216/5
    44.1 gone! That was full, angling into middle and leg. He cleared his front leg to launch that down the ground but didn't get the elevation, spooned a simple catch to mid-on 232/7
    43.4 and that's wicket number three for Chatara. Back of a length, slanting across, and Mustafa looks to run it down to third man with an open face, and can only nick it to the keeper 230/6

    12.6 gone! Completely against the run of play, a really soft dismissal. Goes back to cut, and it's possibly too close for that, and he ends up scooping it straight to backward point at midriff-height 64/1
    22.1 the captain has another wicket! Chakabva went on the back foot to work it into the leg side and slipped as he did so, and his feet slid straight into the stumps. Unfortunate dismissal. 112/3
    15.1 got him! He's struggled through his last two overs but Javed has produced an excellent delivery to dismiss Zimbabwe's best batsman. It was threatening to curl away in the air and then it came in off the pitch and beat Masakadza's inside edge to hit him on the back pad, plumb in front. He was looking to drive that on the up through mid-off 72/2
    27.3 given! That was too full to sweep, and it's hit him on the front pad. The umpire had a long think before giving it out, and Taylor has reviewed. That didn't turn, and may in fact have straightened the other way. Looks out to me. Certainly no inside edge on that. Pitches off, hitting middle and leg. He's a goner. 144/4

    32.4 got him! Lovely delivery from Naveed, curling away late from a nice length outside off. Mire goes for the drive on the up, away from his body, and edges it into the keeper's gloves 167/5
    42.6 got him! Length ball on off stump, stops on the pitch and Ervine checks his shot and ends up popping a simple return catch 250/6
