Cusack to Sikandar Raza, FOUR, not very convincing though, this was pitched up and he was looking to drive straighter, ended up chipping it over cover and the outfield was quick enough for it to reach the rope

Zimbabwe 12/0   Sikandar Raza 8* (5b 2x4)   AR Cusack 0.2-0-8-0

Stirling to Taylor, FOUR, down the leg side and swept fine, short fine leg was in place and Taylor did well to sweep it wide of him

Zimbabwe 21/1   BRM Taylor 6* (2b 1x4)   PR Stirling 1.4-0-8-0

Sorensen to Masakadza, FOUR, well played! This was drifting down the leg side, short fine leg was in place, Masakadza moved across his stumps and mowed that over the fielder

Zimbabwe 27/1   H Masakadza 9* (9b 1x4)   MC Sorensen 0.2-0-4-0

Dockrell to Taylor, FOUR, punishes a low full toss, juicy delivery drifting on the pads, Taylor gets on his knee and slams it wide of short fine leg

Zimbabwe 41/1   BRM Taylor 12* (9b 2x4)   GH Dockrell 1-0-6-0

Cusack to Masakadza, FOUR, this was too full and wide outside off, gets across and caresses it wide of mid-off and cover

Zimbabwe 45/1   H Masakadza 20* (14b 3x4)   AR Cusack 1.1-0-16-1

Cusack to Taylor, FOUR, it you pitch it up you will get slammed, it was wide outside off and he gets underneath it and scoops it over deep extra cover, it lands just before the rope

Zimbabwe 56/1   BRM Taylor 22* (13b 3x4 1x6)   AR Cusack 2-0-27-1

Zimbabwe 76/2   SC Williams 15* (7b 1x4 1x6)   AR McBrine 1.2-0-14-1
