1.1

Robiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, left alone outside off stump, there is carry on this surface if there is some effort from the bowler

1.2

Robiul Islam to Sibanda, 4 leg byes, confusion all around, non-striker wants a run and almost reaches the striker who hasn't budged at all after being struck on the pads around leg stump, fielder runs in from the leg side and he only has to lob the ball back to the non-striker's end, goes for the direct hit, misses and Zimbabwe get away with some nothing running
