Chigumbura to Maddy, 1 run, a loose drive to one outside off stump zips down to third man


Chigumbura to Prior, 1 run, full, driven firmly to mid-off, never with enough oomph to pierce the field


Chigumbura to Maddy, no run, full, straight and driven to extra cover who is three or four yards closer than usual


Chigumbura to Maddy, 1 run, dropped towards backward point with soft hands, a mix-up with the calling but they get away with it as the throw goes to the wrong end


Chigumbura to Prior, no run, wide, a slashing drive gets a thick inside edge into his pads


Chigumbura to Prior, no run, tight, Prior goes back and can only block and Chigumbura follows through to prevent the single

England 3/0   E Chigumbura 1-0-3-0

Chigumbura to Maddy, FOUR, one step... and one bounce over long-on with a huge drive, crouching down and launching off the back foot


Chigumbura to Maddy, no run, minimal footwork, stepping late and swishing as the ball had already gone through just outside off


Chigumbura to Maddy, OUT, goes to hit it over cover, but mis-times and doesn't get the distance nor height - Matsikenyeri does, though, leaping high to take it well

DL Maddy c Matsikenyeri b Chigumbura 14 (8m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 155.55


Chigumbura to Wright, OUT, gone first ball! Edged a huge nick through to the keeper, looking to launch a huge cover-drive out of the ground

LJ Wright c †Taylor b Chigumbura 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Chigumbura to Pietersen, no run, starts from wideish of his crease, nips it back in from off, Pietersen leaves it - his big shoulders full of intent


Chigumbura to Pietersen, no run, short from Chigumbura and climbs awkwardly, Pietersen cutting off the back foot into the ground, too late on the shot to get much purchase

England 20/2   E Chigumbura 2-0-7-2

Chigumbura to Pietersen, 3 runs, the lesser-spotted flamingo from Pietersen, reaching out to outside off and wristing it off the legs through midwicket


Chigumbura to Prior, 1 run, worked to cover for a well-taken single


Chigumbura to Pietersen, 2 runs, the steepler and Pietersen gets away with it, the ball not coming on and he's down on one knee to launch over extra cover, where it plugs


Chigumbura to Pietersen, FOUR, right over cover this time


Chigumbura to Pietersen, FOUR, short and pulled away behind square


Chigumbura to Pietersen, 1 wide, slower ball outside off, flashes a cut at it


Chigumbura to Pietersen, 2 runs, whipped over square leg to end a useful over for England

England 45/2   E Chigumbura 3-0-24-2

Chigumbura to Shah, SIX, massive swipe, Shah makes room, opens his shoulders and clears cow corner by a distance. That's Mascarenhas's zone, but he's a magnanimous type


Chigumbura to Shah, OUT, in the air again, but miscued this time - the ball swirls down to third man, and that's an excellent tumbling catch. Zimbabwe keeping themselves in touch with some cracking work in the field

OA Shah c Chibhabha b Chigumbura 11 (9m 8b 0x4 1x6) SR: 137.50


Chigumbura to Mascarenhas, OUT, walloped, but straight to the man at deep extra cover! That was right out of the middle of the bat - flat and tracer-like. He couldn't have hit it any better, but he's gone first ball ...

AD Mascarenhas c Masakadza b Chigumbura 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Chigumbura to Schofield, no run, hat-trick ball is negotiated with a nibble outside off stump


Chigumbura to Schofield, 1 run, nudged into the gap for Schofield's first international run in seven years


Chigumbura to Broad, no run, outside off, slower than Broad anticipated, and he misses with an attempted glide to third man. Lovely over, and successful too

England 179/8   E Chigumbura 4-0-31-4
