    17.1 completely done in by the skidder. Chari's eyes lit up as he saw that short and rocked back to pull, but got himself into a right royal mess in his quest to heave it from outside off. Didn't have much room and by the time he swung through, the ball had already crashed into the stumps. 59/3
    3.6 cleaned him up with a superb fuller, inswinging delivery.It came in at some pace and Chibhabha tries to clip it away to the leg side but gets beaten by the pace on that delivery and the ball goes from underneath to flatten off and leg stump 18/1
    11.3 and there's the breakthrough immediately after the rain break. Masakadza, it seems, has fallen to a lapse in concentration. This one's fired intoo the blockhole from wide of the crease, Masakadza is late to get forward and end up yorking himself. Lack of feet movement may have contributed to his downfall too 48/2
    18.3 the ball drifted back in and spun away from the rough on middle, Ervine played down the wrong line as he looked to work it across the line. He's hit on the back leg too, which means the ball didn't have much distance to travel. The only thing that could have saved him was bat, and in this case there was none. So, Zimbabwe's decision to take a review hasn't worked this time. They're in deep strife now. 63/4

    18.5 mayhem! West Indies are all over this. Williams has to go and he'll curse himself for jabbing forward without any conviction. This ball was a touch fuller on off, but it kicked off from a patch around off stump. The hard jab found the edge and Shai Hope, who rode the bounce, made a potentially difficult catch look easy. Zimbabwe in a mess 63/5

    24.5 bowled him. Backs away to cut through the off side but that is always going to be a difficult shot to play when there is so much turn, especially against the turn. Moor backed across a long way and exposed all his stumps. The ball spins very sharply and he gets cramped for room, can't make any contact and the ball crasehs into the stumps. Poor shot selection 86/6
    25.6 another terrible shot. It was short and quick from Bishoo. Cremer goes for a pull shot but this one, unlike many others before, does not turn as much and Cremer has no room to play the pull shot. Gets an inside edge on to the stumps for his troubles 89/7
    36.5 just when you praise him, he plays a poor shot to undo all the good work. This was an excellent bouncer on middle, Tiripano shaped to pull but is beaten for pace and could only manage a top edge that was gleefully accepted by wicketkeeper Shai Hope. 127/8

    2.5 this one breaks back in sharply from outside off, Lewis plays all around the delivery. Would have been better off playing with a straight bat. He's hit high on the pad but he was deep inside the crease, which means the ball didn't have to travel a long way. The leg stump was visible too at the point of impact. Third umpire had a long and hard look at it before adjudging Lewis out. From the replays it was clear that there was no inside edge. West Indies in some trouble here, and it's spin that's doing the trick. 12/2
    0.4 chips the simplest of return catches. This one didn't turn, Charles made the mistake of closing the bat face early and ended up getting a leading edge back to the bowler. 1/1
    17.4 direct hit from Craig Ervine at the striker's end and this may be gone. Zimbabwe are confident and are celebrating. Ooh, Brathwaite's not even close. He's a long way out. It was full and outside off. Carter leans across and pushes it into covers before calling for a quick single. Brathwaite responds and a moment's hesitation costs him 70/4
    9.2 attempt a loose drive and is pouched in the slips. The ball flew, but Masakadza moved quickly to his right to take a low catch. There was a hint of spin but Hope was nowhere near the pitch of the ball as he looked to crash that into the cover region. 35/3

    22.5 this is a big moment in this match. An opportunity was missed earlier in the over, but there's relief and a wicket in the form of Powell, who has just committed hara-kiri. Looks to loft that over long-off but didn't get underneath the flight, which the ball lobbed high off a thick outside edge, and the fielder in the deep settled underneath it to complete a low catch. Zimbabwe are alive and kicking. Big, big moment in the game. 93/5
