    1.2 delicious wicket that! Moves away, bounces more and snares the outside edge! He looked rather ominous on the front foot, but the Anwar experiment hasn't worked too well. This is back of a length and angled into him which makes him push from the crease. The shape away and the extra bounce are too much for him to handle and Taylor pockets an easy take 7/1
    1.4 fullish on off stump, comes forward to defend on the off side but there's hesitation! And yep, it costs Asif. They set off, but both of them stalled after a couple of steps and stared at each other. That was enough for Sikandar Raza to run in from mid-off and underarm a direct hit at the bowlers' 8/2
    9.5 goes for the sweep and he's picked out the man in the deep! Hasn't quite got on top of the bounce as Williams flighted this outside off. Went through with the shot again but this time he gets more of a top edge and is snapped up by Chigumbura. Had to fetch that and that spells his end 66/3
    10.4 he's gone! Patil was again looking to play too square on the leg side but this was a length ball outside off. Would've been far better off punching through to long-off as he misses the risky flick and seems to be in line with off stump. 67/4
    13.1 big shout for leg before, but Zimbabwe have their man off a run-out, a second one. Good length ball turns off the pitch as Mustafa lunges forward and outside off. He was hit in line, but it would have missed leg. The appeal had made Mustafa forget this had gone straight to short fine leg 75/6
    11.2 another leg before and UAE are crumbling! Amjad stayed back and played all around it. This is plumb as well. Darted in on off stump and it turns a touch. He was looking for an easy single through the vacant midwicket, but he misses. This one was a lot quicker 68/5
    15.6 he has another! The extra ball works for Zimbabwe as Javed's moving around in the crease contributes to his dismissal. Follows him with a quicker and fuller ball which he flicks straight down the throat of deep square leg 88/8
    13.5 there he goes! His defence was not inspiring any sense of confidence and so he goes after a tossed up delivery on off stump. The swing was just as tentative and he presents a simple skier to mid-off 75/7

    19.4 leg stump cartwheels! Shazad was looking for the leg side boundary, but this time Chatara went with his stock ball, angling into him. Wasn't as full as the situation merited but he has his revenge 115/9

    1.3 that has gone through Masakadza! This rocks the middle stump! The batsman skipped down the pitch and looked for the big shot over the bowler's head, but that snuck under his bat and hit the top of middle. No threatening pace, but that's one advantage of keeping it straight 7/1
    6.5 races down the track and slices this to deep point! Raza's flight is the perfect lure and Sikandar cannot help himself. Goes for the swing over cover and gets it more off the bottom of the bat. The man in the deep runs in and picks up a smart, sliding catch 34/4
    2.4 not so lucky this time. Cleared his front leg and lifted it over the top. Mid-off ran back and picks up a smart catch over his shoulder. Was looking to do a bit too much 22/2
    3.3 beauty! This was a slower ball and Williams was sucked into it. The flick across the line ends up becoming a leading edge which Guruge claims with glee. Drew him forward with that in between length again 24/3
    9.1 doubt this was what was discussed! full toss struck back at the bowler and Khurram snaffles it! Advances at him first ball and having turned this into a juicy full toss, he just drives it straight back into the UAE captain's waiting hands 63/5
