2.1

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, angles it in full on the leg stump, he shuffles and goes for the flick, but misses

2.3

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, gets well forward to a length ball outside off that does not bounce as much as the previous one and shoulders arms

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, still closer to off and finally makes him play, he is just a tad late in getting forward but manages to open the face and defend towards point

2.5

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, just a hint of away movement as he angles it in from well wide of the crease, but too far outside off to elicit anything more than inaction from the batsman

2.6

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, fine leave, very fine leave, Shafiul gets the line right around off, but he judges the line perfectly and lets it go past

Zimbabwe 7/0   Shafiul Islam 2-2-0-0

4.1

4.2

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, dug in back of a length too far outside off stump to interest the batsman, left alone

4.3

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, 4 byes, yikes, that is a poor delivery, Shafiul has lost his line completely, fires it way down the leg side and it moves further away from Rahim, giving him no chance even as he put in a desperate dive

4.4

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, better line, but again a touch wider outside off, he shoulders arms as it bounces past him

4.5

6.1

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, banged in back of a length, worked away in front of square leg

6.2

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, Bangladesh have not persisted in making the batsmen play this morning, another one way outside off stump

6.3

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, that one came in late from outside off, but he had it covered as he lunged forward and shouldered arms

6.4

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, shifts the line closer to off stump but still not tight enough to make him push at it, another leave

6.5

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, the length is just short of a length, the line is way outside off, any decent opener is not going to go after those on the first morning of a five-day game

6.6

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, much better delivery, much fuller, targetting the stumps, he is a bit late on the drive, and Shafiul saves some runs with a diving stop

8.1

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, Shafiul continues to largely be wide outside off stump and is left well alone again

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, another leave outside off stump, the new ball will not have much of an impact even on a cold morning if it is hurled three feet outside off

8.3

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, there again, Shafiul's line is consistently well outside off stump, will he bowl the surprise one that comes back in?

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, 3 runs, there it is, comes straight in from wide of the crease, he seems to be waiting for it, allows it to come on and works it through midwicket

8.5

8.6

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, that;s the one, making him drive from a much fuller length, he cannot get power on the shot and mid off fields

Zimbabwe 28/0   Shafiul Islam 5-4-3-0

10.3

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, crack! that was headed for the wide long off boundary, but mid off got to his left in time to stop a smashing drive off the front foot, this has been a fine start from Zimbabwe

10.4

Shafiul Islam to Mawoyo, no run, left alone as it bounces from a length well outside off stump

10.5

10.6

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, no run, good delivery, and a better leave, jagging in late from well outside off, not far from the stumps, but Zimbabwe have shown excellent judgment so far in leaving

Zimbabwe 45/0   Shafiul Islam 6-4-10-0

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, 1 run, now he goes on the pads in a bid to get it on the stumps and is picked for a run to long leg

37.3

Zimbabwe 126/1   Shafiul Islam 8-4-16-0

43.6

Zimbabwe 262/2   Shafiul Islam 16-6-30-0

88.1

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, no run, as if wide outside off stump was not enough, this one is sprayed wide down the leg side now

88.2

90.4

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, no run, there again, much fuller length, very close to off stump, he does not drive with lots of purpose, just pushes it past the non-striker to mid on

90.5

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, 1 run, allows the ball to come in with the angle, and brings bat around pad to tuck it away to long leg

90.6

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, no run, Masakadza begins from where he left off yesterday, this one holds its line outside off, but close enough to draw him forward, and he solidly defends towards cover

Zimbabwe 265/2   Shafiul Islam 18-7-31-0

92.1

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, no run, he is still not getting forward, Shafiul is targetting the stumps with the full length and the angle, it almost got through him before he stabbed at it from the back foot and got an inside edge towards square leg

92.2

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, no run, better from Taylor, gets front foot and pushes a pitched ball towards extra cover

92.3

92.5

92.6

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, no run, again not full enough, but at least he is bowling a much tighter line today, close to off, and looking to make them play, Taylor leaves though

Zimbabwe 268/2   Shafiul Islam 19-8-31-0

94.1

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, no run, good punch off the back foot, stands in the crease and thumps it, but straight to extra cover, Zimbabwe have found the fielders a lot in this Test

94.2

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, no run, loud shout for lbw, Taylor has been doing this often, he has not been getting forward, caught in the crease, and Shafiul hits him on the pads with one angled in, looked to be a touch high, umpire Dharmasena is unmoved

94.3

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, no run, a touch wider outside off, moving further away, he lets it go

94.4

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, 1 run, gets well forward this time, and drives an overpitched ball elegantly, Shakib at wide mid off gets to it

94.5

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, no run, well played by Masakadza, Shafiul has been bowling really well today, this one moved away after coming in with the angle on middle, but Masakadza's push was so straight there was no way he was going to be troubled

94.6

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, no run, left alone outside off, good bounce for Shafiul

Zimbabwe 269/2   Shafiul Islam 20-8-32-0

96.1

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, 2 runs, is that the only way Bangladesh can break this stand, Masakadza got forward to drive an away going delivery straight past the bowler, but Shafiul got a hand to it, the ball found the stumps and ricocheted past mid on, but Taylor's bat was back in time as replays showed

96.2

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, no run, and bowls a length ball around middle and leg, making him watchfully block

96.3

96.5

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, no run, good delivery, coming back after being angled away from the batsman, he was in no position to counter the changed angle as he was already forward, took it high on the pad

96.6

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, 3 runs, bowls it full on the pads and Masakadza clips it past midwicket, where the fielder does not really charge after it, and concedes three

98.1

Shafiul Islam to Taylor, 1 run, and is picked away through square leg as he goes full on the pads

98.2

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, no run, digs in the bouncer, too short though and it goes over the batsman

98.3

Shafiul Islam to Masakadza, no run, now the slower one on a length, he is already forward and waits till it comes before defending back to the bowler
