    4.3 back of a length outside of off and another one bites the dust for Zimbabwe as now both openers are back in the shed after Chamu played half-heartedly at this delivery from Shami, providing a thick edge to Dhawan at slip, who took it just to the right of his position 13/2
    3.3 fuller length outside of off which catches the outside edge of this flash from Mt Masakadza, with the ball carrying low to the keeper 11/1
    10.6 length delivery outside of off which just nibbles away as Mire feathers the slightest of edges to Dhoni. MS knew right away, but Mohit had to be coerced at the last minute, but Mire ends up pulling a Gilchrist and walking before the final decision was taken 33/3
    41.5 and the Taylor special has to come to a close as he looked to force away this back of a length over the mid-on region, but ends up losing a glove off the handle as he went for the loft, with this one spooning comfortably to the fielder. Congratulations from the Indian players as he makes his way off the ground. One of the all-time great performances by a batsman playing his last international innings. Has he done enough to give Zimbabwe a threatening total in Auckland though? 235/5
    28.3 Ashwin able to reach low to take this attempted bludgeon past him from Williams. The batsman is not sure if this has carried though, with the umpires making sure by pulling up the replay. They do confirm the ball did carry enough, as India pick up a big wicket here as Williams has to go soon after reaching his fifty 126/4
    43.1 excellent slower delivery from Mohit that makes Ervine looks slightly amateur as he dances down before getting a top-edge to this disguised ball from the bowler, with the ball flying high over to Mohit, who barely had to move from his position when it went up initially. Ends a solid contribution from the left-hander, but Zimbabwe will need plenty more as we get into the latter stages 241/6
    45.6 goes round the wicket and delivers the y-word which seemed to have been missing all this time. This one finds its mark right at the base of middle. Ends a lovely little cameo from Raza as Zimbabwe look to pile on the runs 276/7
    48.1 Yadav able to remove the dangerous Regis as he delivers a 142 kph bouncer which the batsman fails to latch onto as he looked to go over fine leg, but ends up holding out to Rohit in the deep at backward square. India just one away now from making it a perfect 60 out of 60 wickets for the tournament 286/9
    47.3 Shami delivers again towards the death for India as Tinashe tries in vain to bludgeon this fuller one high over the cow corner boundary, but ends up holing to deep midwicket 285/8

    6.1 Zimbabwe into business now as they remove the ever-dangerous Rohit from the middle as he looked to heave away this length delivery through the on side, before getting a leading edge high over to the cover region, with Raza back-peddling a bit before claiming this as he fell onto his back. Didn't quite look the part, but perhaps was looking to up the rate a touch 21/1
    6.5 Tinashe on fire here at Auckland as Dhawan now has to depart from the middle after attempting an ill-advised cut to this short of a length which was bowled across him. Just wasn't enough room for him to get away the stroke as this crashed back onto the stumps 21/2
    22.4 and out of nowhere Raza has produced a huge wicket as he gets Kohli bowled around his legs, as the batsmen looked for the sweep round the corner. Kohli looked absolutely befuddled once the gravity of the situation came to light. Has to go for another 30-odd score this World Cup. India in real disarray now 92/4
    16.3 fuller length, outside of off, as this is driven away towards the close-in fielder at cover. Rahane wanted the run, but it was never on as the fielder is able to flick back a throw at the stumps, with Taylor picking up the slack to disturb the bails as Rahane dived. The toe end of the bat may have been in the air though as he tried to ground it in. Very similar to what happened to Chris Jordan recently in the match against Bangladesh. And sure enough, Rahane has to go as his bat was indeed in the air before the bails were disturbed. The misunderstanding has paid dividends for Zimbabwe 71/3
