Aizaz Cheema to Mpofu, no run, the crowd cheers as Mpofu squeezes out another reverse swinging yorker


Aizaz Cheema to Mpofu, no run, changes things with a bouncer outside off, Mpofu ducks under


Aizaz Cheema to Mpofu, 1 run, great to see this, another insiwnging yorker, moves in a long way, Mpofu first gets his feet out of the way and somehow manages to get his bat down in time, he almost fall over trying to evade that, a thick inside-edge sends the ball towards fine leg

Zimbabwe 395/9   CB Mpofu 1* (3b)

Saeed Ajmal to Mpofu, no run, whoah, Mpofu decides there's no point hanging around, looks to swipe that out of the ground, he misses and there's an appeal for a stumping, Mpofu has kept his feet behind the crease


Saeed Ajmal to Mpofu, 1 run, Mpofu survives, just about, he was looking to push the doosra to the leg side, gets a leading edge towards point for a single, Mawoyo wanted a second but Mpofu had ran too far past the stumps for the second


Saeed Ajmal to Mpofu, SIX, the 400 comes up and what a shot to bring it up with, Mpofu attempts the same swipe he had earlier this over, this time he connects and sends the ball soaring over midwicket for a massive six


Saeed Ajmal to Mpofu, no run, what an over this is, another appeal for lbw, beats Mpofu's attempted defence, looked to be missing off

Zimbabwe 405/9   CB Mpofu 8* (7b 1x6)

Aizaz Cheema to Mpofu, no run, length ball outside off, blocked to the off side off the front foot


Aizaz Cheema to Mpofu, no run, a full toss from Cheema, the attempted yorker gone wrong, Mpofu looking to play towards leg, nearly chips it back to the bowler


Aizaz Cheema to Mpofu, no run, the Cheema bouncer, Mpofu sees it early and gets easily under it


Aizaz Cheema to Mpofu, no run, not sure what Cheema was trying there, it is way outside off and full, Mpofu allows it to the keeper

Zimbabwe 410/9   CB Mpofu 8* (11b 1x6)

Saeed Ajmal to Mpofu, no run, is that out? Mpofu looking for a cheeky paddle sweep, is too early into it, and it is off the back of his glove to second slip, where Mohammad Hafeez diving to his right and stretching to take a low one-handed catch, third umpire called in to see whether he got his fingers under it, very hard to tell, benefit of doubt may go to the batsman, it has and Pakistan have some more time to spend on the field


Saeed Ajmal to Mpofu, no run, pitching on a length on middle and off, defended towards point


Saeed Ajmal to Mpofu, no run, again pitching on middle and off, Mpofu is unsure which way the ball will spin from there, gets behind the line of that and manages to keep a low ball out

Zimbabwe 411/9   CB Mpofu 8* (14b 1x6)

Aizaz Cheema to Mpofu, OUT, whoah, that was a shooter, didn't rise up at all, Mpofu is stuck on the back foot as his stumps are spectacularly send flying across, only one stump remains standing, that's more of what you expect from a Pakistan fast bowler, so Zimbabwe finish on 412, and Mawoyo has carried his bat through.

CB Mpofu b Aizaz Cheema 8 (24m 15b 0x4 1x6) SR: 53.33

Zimbabwe 412/10   CB Mpofu 8 (15b 1x6)
