    29.3 Finch has smoked this straight to backward square leg, this was set to disappear too, overpitched, on the pads, Finch bent for the sweep, and powered it to the fielder 145/2
    18.3 uh oh, unfortunate way to go, Haddin defends this short of a length ball, it drops onto the pitch, bounces and as it comes down, it disodges the leg bail 98/1
    45.2 the stand ends at a blistering 109 off 54 as Marsh fails to clear long on with this slower length ball 287/4
    36.2 Utseya has done superbly to hold on to this catch, Bailey had charged out inside the line and had a heave, sliced it behind point, from where Utseya set after it, Nyumbu tore in from short third man, it wasn't a head-on collision, but they did dash into each other, Utseya seems to have hurt himself 178/3
    47.4 does not matter what the format is, Maxwell loves the 90s, he cranked up for another six, this was pitched up and he connected too, but sent it soaring high up, long off does superbly to judge it and goes down with the take 317/6
    46.4 makes room and cracks it straight to mid off, Smith is half way up for the single, and Raza sends him back with a direct hit 298/5

    1.2 given straightaway! Starc strikes on his second ball. He pitched it right on middle stump on length and Mawoyo was struck on the front pad by the delivery that came in slightly as he was stuck to his crease 1/1
    13.6 Lyon's broken the stand with a soft dismissal! He pitched it up on off and Raza went down on a knee to sweep it straight to backward square leg in the circle to Mitchell Marsh. Raza drops his head in disappointment but he has to walk back after a useful stand 64/2
    33.3 gone this time! He was coming down the track too often and this time the turn beat him past the slog he tried and was way down the track when Haddin stumped him 138/7
    18.3 gone! This one was on a similar length to the previous ball, but it bounced a lot more, and he pushed at it without really looking to do anything in particular. It was halfway uppercut, halfway dab, and the ball bounced out of Finch's upraised hands at first slip before he recovered to cling on, tumbling all the way 83/3
    21.1 the short ball has worked! Faulkner banged it in as Chigumbura pulled but only managed a leading edge high in the air, Haddin went back a few steps and pouched it in his gloves 86/4
    22.1 strikes first ball of the new spell! It was angling away from Williams from back of length and he pushed it off the back foot straight to cover for an easy catch as if it was a fielding drill. Five down now Zimbabwe 88/5
    29.3 loud appeal for lbw and it's given! Mutumbami shuffled across towards off, the ball pitched on off and turned in to hit him in front of the stumps and the finger went up 117/6
    37.4 he hands a simple catch to mid-on from outside off! It turned away again from the batsman, Utseya went back to pull it but failed to middle it and handed an easy one to Starc at mid-on 144/9
    36.6 what a yorker, the stumps go flying! It was coming in sharply with the angle, Panyangara tried to defend but it went right through him and sent the middle and leg stumps for a walk 144/8
    39.3 it's all over now, Smith takes three! It was pitched up on middle and leg, Nyumbu went for a slog and a leading edge ballooned to point for an easy catch to end the match 152/10
