View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Coventry b Chibhabha 71 68 48 6 3 147.91
14.6 I am going to shock you all with news that Zimbabwe have held a catch in the deep. No kidding. Hafeez gets a low full toss on the pads and tries to cross-bat it over midwicket, but he picked out Charles Coventry in the deep. He looked pleasantly surprised after catching it. 147/2
View dismissal Asad Shafiq run out (Coventry/†Taibu) 38 32 23 6 1 165.21
6.5 from Price, many a slip between cup and lip for Shafiq. He works a full ball to short fine-leg and sets off for a hesitant single. Hafeez wasn't too sure, and Shafiq decided to turn back. He would have been fine, if not for the fact that he slipped and fell as he tried to turn. Coventry throws down the stumps. 74/1
View dismissal Rameez Raja (2) lbw b Price 23 45 27 2 0 85.18
16.4 probably unfair to the youngster, but I reckon Pakistan won't mind his wicket. Full, flat and straight from Price, it was a dart aimed at middle and leg. Rameez put down the right knee and tried to pull it, but missed. 154/3

18.6 Zimbabwe hold another outfield catch. Length ball outside off, Malik tries to carve it inside out, but picks out Hamilton at deep cover. 180/4

View dismissal V Sibanda c Misbah-ul-Haq b Sohail Khan 7 9 6 1 0 116.66
1.4 Misbah, you stunning jack in the box. The old man still has plenty of steam. Sibanda tries to get under a length ball and thump it straight, and seemed to have done enough to clear mid-on. Someone forgot to tell Misbah that he had no business running back, leaping away towards the boundary and pouching it with both hands as it came down over his shoulder. What. A. Catch. 12/1
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 28 44 26 2 0 107.69
8.5 Hafeez is in a hat-trick. What more can he do this year? May be win the Nobel Prize? Back of a length, nothing ball that skidded along amiably towards Chamu who turned the wrists a touch too early and was struck on the back foot in front of middle. 64/5
View dismissal C Zhuwao c †Umar Akmal b Sohail Khan 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
1.6 if you had blinked you would have missed Zhuwao's innings. Short of a length from Sohail, landed on middle and angled away ever so slightly across the left-hander. Zhuwao didn't move the feet as he got squared up, he just hung his bat at it, and ended up feathering it into the keeper's gloves. 13/2
View dismissal BRM Taylor* c Yasir Shah b Sohail Tanvir 10 12 7 0 1 142.85
4.5 another one bites the dust. Taylor walks across as always and times the hoisted whip particularly well. In hindsight, too well. The shot ended in Yasir Shah's hands at deep backward square leg. 37/3
View dismissal H Masakadza c Yasir Shah b Mohammad Hafeez 12 16 13 1 0 92.30
8.4 and gone. The pressure gets to Hamilton. It was a back of length ball from Hafeez, his typical asphixiating length that can't be driven. Hamilton tried to rock back and cross-bat it, but it wasn't short enough for that either. He ends up spooning it straight up and the man at midwicket settles under it. 64/4
View dismissal E Chigumbura c Sohail Tanvir b Mohammad Hafeez 1 8 3 0 0 33.33
10.3 the case for the Nobel Prize becomes stronger. Hafeez picks up another wicket, but honestly, all credit for that wicket goes to Sohail Tanvir. It was full on leg stump, Elton went down on a knee and looked to lash the sweep high and square. Tanvir moved quickly to his right and took it one handed as he dived away to his right. 77/6
View dismissal CK Coventry c †Umar Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 30 14 13 4 1 230.76
12.3 ah, the honeymoon's over. Ajmal's wiles, as always (except when the batsman is Hussey), come to the fore. Fastish, loopy, speared on the stumps, Coventry top-edges the slog heave and it pops up between the keeper running back and short third man. They run into each other, but one of them has completed the catch by then. 102/7
View dismissal T Taibu run out (Mohammad Hafeez) 6 13 7 0 0 85.71
13.1 Aizaz Cheema to Price, Zim have tried their best to give a wicket to a run out today. They have ultimately succeeded, and it is that man, Prof. Hafeez, once again. Price dabs listlessly in front of point and takes off equally listlessly. Taibu never had a chance. Hafeez charged in, picked up and swung down the stumps from point-blank range. 104/8
View dismissal RW Price b Mohammad Hafeez 3 11 10 0 0 30.00
15.2 Hafeez has four wickets to go with his 71. He is Man of the Match, and just give him the Nobel Prize now. Sharp, flat, straight, you-miss-I-hit stuff. Price slogs across the line and misses, the middle stump falls back. Hafeez follows up his career-best batting effort with his best figures in this format. 113/10
View dismissal KM Jarvis c Yasir Shah b Aizaz Cheema 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
13.3 I don't think I have ever seen Pakistan field this well. Yasir Shah has taken a dream catch running in from long on. Jarvis tried to nail this length ball from Cheema down the ground but looped it up in the air. Yasir bolted in, dived forward and was at full stretch, and almost on the roll as he took that catch inches above the grass. He seemed to have dived too early and was on the descent when he reached the ball, with his hands under him rather than in front. What a take! 104/9
