1.6

Zimbabwe XI 13/0   H Masakadza 1* (2b)

2.1

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, FOUR, Masakadza goes after Razzak, dances down the pitch and slashed that between the bowler and mid-on, there's no stopping that

2.2

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, tries to cut that away but its too close to the body and he misses

2.3

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, and again, not short enough and Masakadza swishing too early, he misses

2.4

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, another dot ball from Razzak, good length and pushed away

2.5

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, appeal for lbw, struck Masakadza on the top of the back pad but it may have been a little high, not too confident anyway

2.6

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, 1 run, and another good over from the left-arm spinner, pushed away into the off-side

Zimbabwe XI 18/0   H Masakadza 6* (8b 1x4)

3.1

Elias Sunny to Masakadza, FOUR, full delivery first up and Masakadza gets under that so well. Stand and delivery stuff, hit straight down the ground for four

3.2

Elias Sunny to Masakadza, OUT, how did that happen? Masakadza moved his feet and drove that on the on-side, straight to the fielder. Masakadza sets off for the run, Sibanda doesn't have the time to say no and he is found well short of his crease. Silly error from the openers, who did so well yesterday.

V Sibanda run out 12 (12m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Zimbabwe XI 22/1   H Masakadza 10* (9b 2x4)

4.1

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, This will be a real test for the Zimbabwean batsmen as spin continues and so does the defending

4.6

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, 1 run, pushed away on the off-side, there was a bit of power behind that shot and some good fielding keeps it to just one

Zimbabwe XI 33/1   H Masakadza 15* (15b 3x4)

5.1

Elias Sunny to Masakadza, no run, short but slower, Masakadza wants to pull but he is too early and gets a bottom edge which rolls to the fielders on the leg side

5.2

Elias Sunny to Masakadza, no run, touch fuller now, looks to cut but again, not well timed and there's no run again

5.3

5.4

Elias Sunny to Masakadza, no run, fuller again and Masakadza can't get it away this time

5.5

Elias Sunny to Masakadza, no run, comes after him does Maskadza, Sunny is too wily, there's nothing on offer there either

6.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Masakadza, no run, nice and full, Masakadza can't get it away

6.2

Zimbabwe XI 43/1   H Masakadza 25* (25b 4x4)

7.3

Abul Hasan to Masakadza, no run, short but Masakadza pulls early and there's a fielder at mid-on to mop up

7.4

Abul Hasan to Masakadza, no run, good length and on leg-stump, Masakadza has come down the pitch to pull but the length isnt short enough and he makes no contact

7.5

Abul Hasan to Masakadza, no run, outside off-stump, Masakadza moves towards it and wants to steer to third man, but Hasan saw him coming and did not offer as much width as Masakadza wanted

7.6

8.5

Zimbabwe XI 74/2   H Masakadza 33* (33b 5x4)

10.1

Elias Sunny to Masakadza, 1 run, Matsikenyeri will push Masakadza is these tap and run situations, so expect the dancing shows to be on now

11.1

Mahmudullah to Masakadza, no run, full and straight and Masakadza can only keep that out

11.2

Mahmudullah to Masakadza, 2 runs, full toss, veering down leg side and Masakadza could have done more with that, heaves it out to deep mid-wicket and calls for the second. There's almost trouble but the fielding is poor and they're back comfortably

11.3

Mahmudullah to Masakadza, no run, tapped down near the pitch

11.4

Mahmudullah to Masakadza, 1 run, on legstump and pushed to mid-on

Zimbabwe XI 88/3   H Masakadza 44* (41b 5x4 1x6)

12.4

12.5

Abul Hasan to Masakadza, 1 wide, not the best way to bring up 100, too wide outside off, perhaps a little harsh

12.5

Abul Hasan to Masakadza, 1 run, line and length from Hasan now, he gets some right and when he does, he looks good, push and run stuff here

Zimbabwe XI 114/3   H Masakadza 49* (45b 5x4 1x6)

14.1

15.6

Mahmudullah to Masakadza, 2 runs, that's the 50-partnership between these two, again - its been a case of scoring singles, rather than muscling their way through
