Zimbabwe 33/3   S Matsikenyeri 2* (3b)

11.1

Taylor to Matsikenyeri, no run, short and gently arcing away from the righthander there who lets it fly through to the keeper

11.2

Taylor to Matsikenyeri, FOUR, oh - wide delivery, seaming off the pitch, the batsman slashes at that one and a thick edge flies wide of second slip, and climbing, and that runs away very quickly indeed

11.3

Taylor to Matsikenyeri, no run, fizzes through and that's left alone outside off stump with some serious shouldering of arms

11.4

Taylor to Matsikenyeri, no run, the ball comes back sharply and there's a big appeal and that's going down leg, with a touch of inside edge, too

11.5

Taylor to Matsikenyeri, no run, on leg and that's worked to short midwicket

11.6

Taylor to Matsikenyeri, 1 run, short, straight and that's played down off the back foot to a very wide third man, more of a fifth man

12.2

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, no run, angling in to the righthander and that's defended into the covers this time

12.3

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, 2 runs, well timed through midwicket and they come back for the second easily enough

12.4

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, FOUR, well outside off and that's slashed away through cover

12.5

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, no run, worked through leg

12.6

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, no run, tempting delivery but the batsman shows good restraint and leaves that alone outside the off stump

Zimbabwe 45/3   S Matsikenyeri 13* (15b 2x4)

13.2

Taylor to Matsikenyeri, 1 run, late cut down to gully, an outside edge bounces just in front of the fielder

13.5

Taylor to Matsikenyeri, 1 run, played down off the back foot to square leg

Zimbabwe 49/3   S Matsikenyeri 15* (17b 2x4)

14.1

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, no run, decent delivery this one, the bounce surprising Matsikenyeri, who was looking to perhaps hook that one and had to settle on a defence in the end

14.2

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, no run, a good length and in a good area, and that's defended stoutly into the covers

14.3

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, no run, big slash at that one, looking to lamp it through point, but slices only air, carving right over the ball

14.4

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, no run, left alone outside off

14.5

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, 1 wide, misdirected down leg and that's just left alone by the batsman to bring up the fifty

14.6

15.2

Smith to Matsikenyeri, 1 run, driven forward

Zimbabwe 52/3   S Matsikenyeri 16* (24b 2x4)

16.6

Collymore to Matsikenyeri, no run, pushed up there, straying on to middle and leg and the batsman has no difficulty in driving that in front of midwicket for an easy single

Zimbabwe 58/3   S Matsikenyeri 16* (25b 2x4)

17.3

Smith to Matsikenyeri, no run, steps down the track, but not out of his crease, and defends that one forward

17.4

Smith to Matsikenyeri, OUT, the first sign of aggression from Matsikenyeri and it doesn't come off - looking to strike that over mid-on but it hardly gets up whatsoever and that's an easy catch for Daren Powell at chest height

S Matsikenyeri c Powell b Smith 16 (36m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 59.25

Zimbabwe 59/4   S Matsikenyeri 16 (27b 2x4)
