    4.4 gone! Poor technique from Chibhabha, swayed away to leave the short ball but left the bat pointing up, and ended up popping a simple catch to second slip 14/1
    6.4 and another simple catch to second slip. Short, close to the body. Raza looked to make room and poke it away into the off side but it got big on him, hit the shoulder of his bat, and popped to Haris at a comfortable chest height 22/2
    21.2 down the track, and Masakadza throws it away. Brilliantly caught by Misbah. Goes for a big shot and it's always angling away and he wasn't really to the pitch of it. Skies it a long way up, and Misbah backtracks from mid-off and falls onto his back as he catches it in front of his chest. Comes up with a broad grin, half delighted, half bemused. 74/3
    29.3 got him. That isn't the greatest delivery, back of a length down the leg side, and Taylor gets a tickle through to the keeper while trying to play the leg glance 128/4
    33.2 gone! What has Williams done? That was short, too close to the body to really control the cut, and he scooped it straight into Shehzad's hands at backward point. He caught that over his head, with two hands, and then gestured to his teammates to say he didn't pick it up until the last moment 150/5
    39.2 edged, and it sticks in Akmal's gloves again. It's shortish outside off and he goes for the slash and gets a thick nick that Akmal catches at shoulder height to his left 168/7
    36.4 he's struck again. That's Irfan's fourth. Perfect delivery, back of a length, close to off stump. Mire fishes uncertainly, not too far from his body, and it kisses the shoulder of his bat and Akmal takes a simple catch behind the wicket. He rolled his fingers over, and that moved away just a touch off the pitch 166/6
    49.4 banged in short, Chigumbura goes for the hook, and top-edges it through to Akmal, who takes his fifth catch of the match, and Zimbabwe have been bowled out 215/10
    39.4 and another! Caught Akmal bowled Wahab once again. It's fuller this time, on off stump, and it actually came in off the pitch as Mupariwa aimed a drive on the up, and took the outside edge, high up on the bat, and nestled in the keeper's gloves at chest height 168/8
    49.3 now the batsman goes the other way, shuffling across his crease. Wahab bowls it short on middle stump again, he swivels to pull, misses, and they try to steal a bye and Akmal rolls it at the stumps, misses, but the bowler picks it up and hurls it at the bowler's end, hits the stumps there, and catches Panyangara short of his crease 215/9
