12 September 2007 - night match (20-over match)

Bracken to Sibanda, OUT, 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 ...

V Sibanda c †Gilchrist b Bracken 23 (16m 15b 5x4 0x6) SR: 153.33

Zimbabwe 31/1   BRM Taylor 6* (8b)   NW Bracken 1.5-0-12-1

Clark to Chibhabha, OUT, 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

CJ Chibhabha c †Gilchrist b Clark 15 (13m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

Zimbabwe 54/2   BRM Taylor 14* (13b 1x4)   SR Clark 2-0-14-1

Johnson to Taibu, OUT, 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.

T Taibu c †Gilchrist b Johnson 0 (3m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 55/3   BRM Taylor 14* (13b 1x4)   MG Johnson 2-0-10-1

Clark to Matsikenyeri, OUT, 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

S Matsikenyeri c †Gilchrist b Clark 3 (11m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Zimbabwe 70/4   BRM Taylor 26* (22b 2x4)   SR Clark 3.5-0-21-2

Lee to Masakadza, OUT, 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

H Masakadza lbw b Lee 27 (28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 96.42

Zimbabwe 123/5   BRM Taylor 52* (40b 3x4 2x6)   B Lee 3.3-0-27-1
