Chigumbura to Mahmudullah, OUT, well what do I know, the wide and full length has worked for Elton, Mahmudullah slams it hard but did not keep it down and it flew straight to Masakadza at backward point, who seemed surprised for a moment as the ball lodged in his hands before celebrating

Masakadza to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, that is a superb catch, Shakib has to walk back, he has batted so well, tried to force a length ball leaving him from the crease, did not have much room to work with, and pushed in the air towards shortish extra cover, who went down on his left to take a very sharp chance, it was flying past him
