14.6

Zimbabwe 51/0   V Sibanda 35* (52b 8x4)

17.5

Sohail Khan to Sibanda, 2 runs, Sibanda keeps pulling. He kept getting out to that shot against Zimbabwe, but he keeps playing the shot. This isn't exactly a long hop, and he is not even on the back foot! Ends up hitting it uppishly towards mid-on, but just wide of the fielder

Zimbabwe 62/0   V Sibanda 43* (61b 9x4)

21.1

Junaid Khan to Sibanda, no run, Nearly a wicket, angled in, holds its line, gets a regulation edge, but it falls at least a metre short of Taufeeq Umar. He is way too deep at first slip. This pitch has hardly had any bounce

Saeed Ajmal to Sibanda, OUT, as expected, Ajmal gets the first wicket! It's the doosra again. Sibanda leaves the crease again, Ajmal bowls this slightly wide outside off. Beaten in the flight, Sibanda looks to push at this defensively, but he has not picked the doosra. It beats the outside edge, and Sibanda is left stranded half way down the pitch. Adnan Akmal makes no mistake behind the stumps
