View dismissal H Masakadza c Porterfield b McBrine 21 23 17 3 0 123.52
6.2 56.6 mph, another wicket off a poor shot! Masakadza went down the track but changed his shot and half heartedly chipped this straight to short midwicket, he was let off earlier but failed to make full use of the chance 56/2
View dismissal Sikandar Raza c Sorensen b Cusack 10 7 8 2 0 125.00
1.5 79.2 mph, poor shot! Raza looked to repeat the shot from the previous ball, he may have played this too early and the ball came on a bit slower, pulled straight to mid-on where Sorensen hops and takes it over his head 14/1
View dismissal BRM Taylor*† c Joyce b Dockrell 59 57 46 6 2 128.26
16.6 52.1 mph, Taylor perishes in the deep and Ireland have picked up an important wicket, tossed up outside off and Taylor went down the track to loft inside out, Joyce jogs to his right at deep extra cover and takes the catch 131/5
View dismissal SC Williams st †Wilson b McBrine 16 9 9 1 1 177.77
8.5 53.2 mph, Appeal for a stumping and Williams is walking! And ironically it's the sweep that's cost him his wicket, this was cleverly tossed up McBrine, slowed down the pace and foxed him, Williams was too early on the sweep, he had a long stride forward, Wilson was alert and whipped off the bails immediately, Williams' back foot was outside the crease and he failed to get his bat back on time 78/3
View dismissal V Sibanda c Sorensen b Dockrell 16 19 18 1 0 88.88
14.3 53.0 mph, another one straight to the fielder, this was dropped short and Sibanda couldn't help but go for the pull, rocked back, didn't get the distance, straight to deep midwicket 111/4

View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Maruma b Williams 31 33 23 3 1 134.78
8.2 52.5 mph, some relief for Zimbabwe! Tossed up on middle and leg, Porterfield goes for the slog, miscues it and Maruma takes the catch running forward from deep midwicket 80/1
View dismissal PR Stirling c Sikandar Raza b Chatara 60 42 34 9 1 176.47
10.3 79.7 mph, Raza takes the skier and it was well judged! Stirling falls to a poor shot, he was looking to slam that straight down the ground, didn't get to the pitch of it and it was miles up in the air, Raza gets under it near the region of mid-on and hangs on to it on the fall 100/2
View dismissal EC Joyce b Panyangara 22 50 28 0 0 78.57
19.3 78.8 mph, and a magnificent inswinging yorker from Panyangara makes things interesting again! Joyce made a bit of room and exposed his stumps, he failed to get his bat down to dig it out, the ball just kissed the leg stump and knocked down the leg bail 162/6
View dismissal AD Poynter c Chigumbura b Panyangara 23 18 15 3 0 153.33
14.4 78.7 mph, There's an appeal for a catch at midwicket but it could be a bump ball. This was full and swinging in, Poynter looked to flick it away and it went low to Chigumbura who took the catch cleanly falling forward, no doubts there, the question was if the ball bounced once after it made contact with the bat, replays confirmed that the ball ballooned off the bottom of the bat so it's fair 129/3
View dismissal GC Wilson c Masakadza b Panyangara 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
14.6 79.8 mph, are we in for a twist here? Clever captaincy here getting in a slip, this was a length ball outside off and Wilson chased it, thick outside edge and Masakadza showed good reflexes to take it to his left, that went quickly off the bat 129/4
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c Williams b Panyangara 17 12 10 2 1 170.00
17.6 78.4 mph, after the assault the bowler gets his wicket! Funny old over, this was pitched up and he stayed at the crease and lofted it down to long-off, the fielder was pushed back 157/5
SR Thompson not out 3 12 6 0 0 50.00
View dismissal MC Sorensen run out (Williams) 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
19.4 from Panyangara, and we have a run out in the middle of all this would you believe this! Sorensen digs out a yorker to mid-off and risks the single, the throw from Williams was accurate and Sorensen was miles short, he collided with the bowler but Panyanagara wasn't complaining 162/7
