Brent to Prior, FOUR, swung from middle behind square on the leg side - the short boundary - and it's four all the way

England 10/0   MJ Prior 5* (5b 1x4)   GB Brent 0.3-0-7-0

Brent to Maddy, FOUR, firm drive past a diving cover, it beats the man and that's got the power to beat the slow outfield

England 15/0   DL Maddy 9* (5b 1x4)   GB Brent 0.5-0-12-0

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

England 20/0   DL Maddy 14* (7b 2x4)   E Chigumbura 1.1-0-7-0

Mupariwa to Prior, FOUR, spearing down leg, low, turned it off the legs behind square

England 24/2   MJ Prior 10* (7b 2x4)   T Mupariwa 0.1-0-4-0

Chigumbura to Pietersen, FOUR, right over cover this time

England 38/2   KP Pietersen 10* (7b 1x4)   E Chigumbura 2.4-0-17-2

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

England 42/2   KP Pietersen 14* (8b 2x4)   E Chigumbura 2.5-0-21-2

Taibu to Pietersen, FOUR, low on middle stump, Pietersen moves outside off and sweeps audaciously behind square. Outrageous confidence, and more than gets away with it - sumptuous timing

England 75/3   KP Pietersen 34* (18b 3x4 1x6)   T Taibu 1-0-9-0

Dabengwa to Pietersen, FOUR, good late adjustment from the bowler as Pietersen made room on the leg side, but to no avail. A superbly timed sweep brings another boundary

England 98/3   KP Pietersen 49* (24b 4x4 2x6)   KM Dabengwa 0.3-0-5-0

Brent to Collingwood, FOUR, short again from Brent, who's lost his way after yesterday's heroics, and that's paddled effortlessly behind square. England in command after their early alarms

England 113/3   PD Collingwood 26* (21b 1x4 1x6)   GB Brent 2-0-25-0

Dabengwa to Pietersen, FOUR, same intent, not lofted this time. But what an eye. England are motoring now

England 123/3   KP Pietersen 60* (29b 5x4 3x6)   KM Dabengwa 1.2-0-17-0

Dabengwa to Pietersen, FOUR, that's sheer arrogance. The man had been placed back for the reverse shot, and he still took it on and won. Incredible confidence and skill, and Zimbabwe are struggling now

England 127/3   KP Pietersen 64* (30b 6x4 3x6)   KM Dabengwa 1.3-0-21-0

Utseya to Pietersen, FOUR, whacked. That looked like one of my golf shots, heaved across the line and hooked over long-on

England 149/3   KP Pietersen 77* (35b 7x4 4x6)   P Utseya 2.1-0-18-0

Brent to Schofield, FOUR, slower ball again, a wild slash from Broad gets a thin outside edge, and is helped over the boundary by a despairing dive from third man

England 185/8   CP Schofield 6* (4b 1x4)   GB Brent 2.3-0-31-0
