19 March 2007 (50-over match)

Powell to Chibhabha, FOUR, close! thick outside edge as he tries to drive off the back foot and he flies just past the outstretched hand of Dwayne Bravo at second slip...first boundary of the day

Zimbabwe 19/2   CJ Chibhabha 7* (15b 1x4)   DBL Powell 3.2-1-8-1

Taylor to Chibhabha, FOUR, best shot of day, foot to the pitch, free swing through the line and it races between cover and mid off

Zimbabwe 25/2   CJ Chibhabha 11* (20b 2x4)   JE Taylor 4-0-15-1

Powell to Taylor, FOUR, ooh, close! takes the inside edge and shoots past leg stump and away to fine leg...the perfect Chinese/French cut

Zimbabwe 29/2   BRM Taylor 8* (19b 1x4)   DBL Powell 4.1-1-12-1

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

Zimbabwe 37/3   S Matsikenyeri 6* (5b 1x4)   JE Taylor 5.2-0-20-2

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

Zimbabwe 45/3   S Matsikenyeri 13* (13b 2x4)   CD Collymore 0.4-0-7-0

Gayle to Williams, FOUR, fraction short, top shot from Williams who picks the length quickly, rocks back and finds the gap at cover...this time with enough timing for a welcome boundary

Zimbabwe 92/4   SC Williams 17* (30b 1x4)   CH Gayle 4-1-9-0

Smith to Williams, FOUR, cracked! another fine shot from Williams as Smith drops slightly short - although it wasn't a bad ball - and the left-hander plays another fine drive through the covers off the back foot

Zimbabwe 97/4   SC Williams 21* (31b 2x4)   DR Smith 4.2-0-26-1

Gayle to Williams, FOUR, down leg and swept away behind square

Zimbabwe 121/4   SC Williams 34* (47b 3x4)   CH Gayle 7.4-1-23-0

Samuels to Williams, FOUR, down on one knee and firmly swept through square - well executed

Zimbabwe 136/4   SC Williams 44* (55b 4x4)   MN Samuels 4.5-1-17-0

Samuels to Williams, FOUR, unlucky! quicker ball, yorker, and it beats every and hurries down to the fine-leg rope and it's given runs which brings up a useful fifty for Williams

Zimbabwe 150/5   SC Williams 52* (70b 5x4)   MN Samuels 7-1-23-0

Taylor to Chigumbura, FOUR, connects at last, and with the timing as it beats the man at long on and crosses the ropes...not entirely middled but it did the job

Zimbabwe 154/5   E Chigumbura 5* (7b 1x4)   JE Taylor 8.2-0-33-2

Taylor to Chigumbura, FOUR, cut away and fine enough to beat third man into the fence so Chigumbura trying to change gear here...that's the bonus of the extra pace of Taylor, the ball goes quickly to the rope

Zimbabwe 158/5   E Chigumbura 9* (10b 2x4)   JE Taylor 8.5-0-37-2

Samuels to Williams, FOUR, but thumps this over extra cover in no uncertain terms, one of the best shots of the day as he lifts it over the man at cover

Zimbabwe 162/5   SC Williams 56* (72b 6x4)   MN Samuels 7.2-1-27-0

Taylor to Chigumbura, FOUR, well hit...picked the slower ball and went over cover. He may not locate the middle very often but when he does it goes a long way...and he has a license in the final few overs

Zimbabwe 172/5   E Chigumbura 16* (15b 3x4)   JE Taylor 9.4-0-42-2

Samuels to Williams, FOUR, ooh! that turned, missed the edge as Williams drives and Ramdin makes a hash of the take and it's four bonus runs for Zimbabwe as West Indies lose their way a little

Zimbabwe 182/5   SC Williams 65* (82b 7x4)   MN Samuels 9-1-38-0

Samuels to Chigumbura, FOUR, heaved through the leg side and he finds the gap on the deep square-leg fence as Chigumbura continues his late charge

Zimbabwe 191/5   E Chigumbura 22* (22b 4x4)   MN Samuels 9.1-1-42-0

Samuels to Chigumbura, FOUR, that was right of middle through midwicket, some power there, and more priceless runs for Zimbabwe who are giving West Indies a fight

Zimbabwe 197/5   E Chigumbura 28* (24b 5x4)   MN Samuels 9.3-1-48-0
