    19.1 got im! Got a touch too close to the ball with his dance down the track, which is why he does not get the distance he wanted. Goes for the loft looking for another first-ball six to another spinner. Ends up finding long-off. 91/1
    35.3 hit the splice of the bat, that's what extra pace does. Zimbabwe do well to keep mid-off up for Holden, who's not exactly torn the attack apart. This time he tries to do so with a front foot thwack, which is so not on against a skiddy short ball outside off. Keefe takes an easy catch running up from mid-off 164/2

    38.5 caught at short fine leg, simple as that. The pressure Magarira has been creating, and the need of the hour for England combine to dismiss Taylor. Looks to up the run-rate and goes for a slog sweep. Ends up getting under the ball a bit too much and the top edge comes down quite comfortably into Madhevere's hands 174/3
    44.2 ooh, he's got a little too ambitious. Runs down the pitch, making a little too much room to hit inside out over cover. Madhevere slips in the quicker ball, goes on with the arm, beats Donald and the wicketkeeper does the rest 226/4

    3.3 end of a miserable stay for Patel on Youth ODI debut. Fuller delivery on off stump, tailing back into the right-hander, Patel has been impatient all innings and throws his wicket away with a chip to mid-off. 8/1
    4.2 he seems to make them zip through after kissing the deck. Wobbly seam position, pointing towards gully. Hits around off stump, finds Brendan Sly's outside edge as he pokes with no footwork at all. Balls as short as that end up as wickets when the batsman fails to move 10/2
    6.1 dolly to midwicket! A little short and on off stump, not quite the right ball to go for the pull shot. Murray ends up looking quite awkward really, sort of like he just shovels the ball straight up and Donald sets himself up and called loud and early to make sure mid-on does not interfere 14/3

    43.4 knocked leg stump out of the park and Ives will not get his hundred. Poor lad, stays hunched over his bat after hearing timber and collects the handshakes. It was full, it was curling back at him, his feet were rooted outside leg to try and make sure he has room to open up the off side but he couldn't adjust to the pace of the swing through the air 159/10
    16.4 captain takes his second chance! Snyder looks to launch Green to the straight boundary, but again he mistimes it. Taylor moves back and to his left at mid-off and takes it reverse cup. 49/4
    23.4 that's the back of the hand slower ball making magic! But this one is all down to Brad Taylor's effort at short cover. Mashinge flayed it and may well have been hoping for a boundary, but the England captain so very close in dives to his right, gets both hands to it and holds on to a screamer 69/5
    23.5 get him in for slip catching practice at the nets! Banged in short just outside off, Keefe guides it perfectly into the hands at slip. Think he wanted to run it to third man, but the bounce was a bit too much for him so the ball just went too fine 69/6
    25.4 rip-roaring yorker and leg stump has been battered! Got through Madhevere before he knew what was happening. By the time he realised the danger and brought a closed face down, the ball angled into his pads has uprooted leg stump 76/7
    35.4 outside edge off a wild swing taken by a backtracking backward point. Good length ball pulls the slog out, much to the detriment of the Zimbabwe captain 128/8
    38.1 ah ripper! He's been hunting for the offstump all day with the amount of dip and drift he's managed today. A few have turned right past and into the keeper's gloves. This one pitches in front of the lazily driving bat and hits the top of off 147/9
