    3.5 in the slot for a swing, but Sibanda's gone this time! A bit of lift and away-movement, and Gilchrist behind the stumps takes a comfortable catch. Still, Sibanda has done his bit. He's given his team the start they needed ... 31/1

    6.6 that's a massive steepler - it's gone straight up in the air and almost tops out above the Newlands lights. Any man on the field could have claimed it, but Gilchrist with the gloves steps forward, and is a very relieved man to end that mini-onslaught 54/2
    7.6 no width at all this time. That was a perfect lifter on middle stump and seaming away to boot. Taibu feathers a limp defensive stroke to the keeper, and Australia are starting to assert themselves at last. 55/3
    10.5 goes to hook, a huge top-edge goes high and back down into Gilchrist's hands - the keeper didn't have to do too much there, just hold on 70/4
    18.3 dangerous shot - sounded like an edge but there wasn't - Masakadza trying the sweep and paying for it. You don't get plumber and that wasn't a tough decision 123/5

Match Notes

  • Taylor anchors Zimbabwe to historic win

    For a few minutes at a chilly Newlands, Australia, the pre-tournament favourites, wobbled against Zimbabwe, slipping to 19 for 3 as the 15,000 crowd dared to think the unthinkable. They staged a recovery of sorts but were never at anything like their bes
