View dismissal T Maruma lbw b Robiul Islam 10 71 46 1 0 21.73
14.4 appeal for lbw and has been given, it seemed like it was missing leg but I may be wrong. Lands on a length on middle and leg and it moved further down, got across to defend, was struck on the pads, marginal call it seems, may have clipped the stumps or gone down, we need to take another look, but Tony Hill reckons it is out, and that's what matters. Two down, the openers are gone 22/2
View dismissal V Sibanda b Robiul Islam 5 37 21 1 0 23.80
8.1 yorker, what a delivery and Sibanda has been sent back, Timbaaa! Fiery and full on middle and Sibanda just missed as he tried to defend it from the crease, the middle stump flew towards the keeper, that's how comprehensively bowled Sibanda was 10/1

View dismissal MN Waller b Rubel Hossain 55 170 138 3 0 39.85
81.6 Big wicket! A huge breakthrough for Bangladesh, against the run of play you would think.

View dismissal AG Cremer c Mahmudullah b Sohag Gazi 42 157 140 3 0 30.00
134.5 Superb catch at slip, an outside edge, Mahmudullah dives full length to his right to snap that with one hand to end an excellent partnership, turns in sharply and Cremer tries to stab that outside off, gets a thick edge and Mahmudullah brings a lot of relief for Bangladesh fans, Gazi just looked grateful there, thanking Mahmudullah for bringing him a wicket 344/7

44.4 What has Ashraful done here? Or should we be surprised? Short on the off and he went for the pull, didn't connect well at all, got it low on the bat and offered a simple catch to a deep midwicket running in, he was not too far back to begin with and he judged it well in the end 124/5

41.1 Mahmudullah's troubled run in Tests continues, Meth strikes again, short of a good length and moved away a little, Mahmudullah just hung his bat out without any intent there, was probably looking to just guide it towards point, got an inside edge onto the stumps 112/3

44.2 Shakib goes, that's a huge blow! Zimbabwe on top here, short of a good length and he was surprised by the bounce there, tried to fend it into the off side, and tried taking his bottom-hand off but it seems to have caught the handle and lobbed up towards gully, easy catch for Sibanda 123/4

Seemed, on the first replay, that it could have hit leg, six down and Bangladesh are struggling 134/6

51.4 What was Nasir doing there? Jarvis troubled him the first two balls, this one just seemed less lethal, short of a good length and was moving away, Nasir, just like Mahmudulllah had done, just played loosely at that one, got a thick edge to the keeper 134/7

The bat was in the air when the bails were taken off. He landed it on the line, it then bounced up, the bails were taken off as it was in the air, and it was too late by the time the bat made contact with the ground again. The third umpire took his time, it is a close call, but his bat was in the air when the bails came off and at the time it landed the first time, it did so on the line and not inside the crease. 139/8

The bat was in the air when the bails were taken off. He landed it on the line, it then bounced up, the bails were taken off as it was in the air, and it was too late by the time the bat made contact with the ground again. The third umpire took his time, it is a close call, but his bat was in the air when the bails came off and at the time it landed the first time, it did so on the line and not inside the crease. 139/8
49.1 to Rubel Hossain, Rubel goes now, short on the off and turns away, Rubel goes for the pull, wants to smack it over midwicket, gets a top-edge and is caught comfortably by Shingi at mid-on 147/9
49.2 to Robiul Islam, it's all over, Zimbabwe have won! Jarvis pulls off a stunner in the deep, Went for the sweep and connected well, for a moment we thought that was a boundary but Jarvis was patrolling the boundary at deep backward square leg and he ran back and timed his jump superbly to pluck that over his head there to complete an outstanding catch and seal a huge win for Zimbabwe 147/10
