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

V Sibanda st †Adnan Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 45 (107m 66b 9x4 0x6) SR: 68.18

Zimbabwe 71/1   TMK Mawoyo 22* (71b 2x4)   Saeed Ajmal 3.5-1-8-1

Saeed Ajmal to Masakadza, OUT, Ajmal gets another wicket! An ambitious shot from Masakadza. This is from round the stumps, a short-of-a-length delivery, Masakadza tries the pull, missed the line, and Ajmal hits the off stump

H Masakadza b Saeed Ajmal 11 (48m 41b 2x4 0x6) SR: 26.82

Zimbabwe 91/2   TMK Mawoyo 29* (110b 2x4)   Saeed Ajmal 10.1-3-22-2

Saeed Ajmal to Taylor, OUT, Big lbw shout. Sharp, big offbreak from outside off. Taylor moves half forward and then goes back, is beaten by the movement, and is hit smack in front of the stumps. On first look it seemed it might be turning too much, but he is so deep in the crease the ball had hardly any distance to travel. Plumb. Ajmal has all three. He could take all 10, the others have been so ineffective

BRM Taylor lbw b Saeed Ajmal 10 (19m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Zimbabwe 111/3   TMK Mawoyo 39* (125b 4x4)   Saeed Ajmal 12.4-3-34-3

Sohail Khan to Taibu, OUT, Sohail gets his first Test wicket, gift-wrapped by a dangerous-looking Taibu. This is short, this is wide, Taibu goes hard at it. All he manages is a thin edge through to the keeper. Sohail exults, Taibu walks back

T Taibu c †Adnan Akmal b Sohail Khan 44 (102m 70b 6x4 0x6) SR: 62.85

Zimbabwe 176/4   TMK Mawoyo 55* (203b 5x4)   Sohail Khan 13.2-6-35-1

Junaid Khan to Ervine, OUT, Junaid gets his first wicket in Test cricket, a moment to savour for him, not so much for Ervine who misses out on a half-century, another short ball that was angling in, Ervine tries to guide that to the leg side, off the shoulder of the bat and loops back to the bowler, the partnership ends at 94

CR Ervine c & b Junaid Khan 49 (141m 106b 8x4 0x6) SR: 46.22

Zimbabwe 270/5   TMK Mawoyo 96* (306b 12x4)   Junaid Khan 25.5-13-49-1

Saeed Ajmal to Lamb, OUT, at long last a wicket for Pakistan, Ajmal removes Lamb who was looking to defend an offspinner, perhaps he was looking for a third consecutive doosra, he doesn't get bat on it, past the inside edge and hit low on the pad, that pitched on middle and off and went straight on, a vociferous appeal and umpire raises the finger, much to Pakistan's relief

GA Lamb lbw b Saeed Ajmal 39 (146m 105b 4x4 0x6) SR: 37.14

Zimbabwe 365/6   TMK Mawoyo 146* (415b 18x4)   Saeed Ajmal 46.3-11-114-4

Aizaz Cheema to Price, OUT, Cheema gets his first wicket! Price is gone, was looking to defend that off the back foot, inside-edged on to the pad and that pops up towards short leg, who moves quickly to his left to lap it up on the second chance, it was Azhar Ali who took the catch, ending up on his back and appealing as he fell over

RW Price c Azhar Ali b Aizaz Cheema 6 (14m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Zimbabwe 374/7   TMK Mawoyo 149* (418b 18x4)   Aizaz Cheema 22.4-9-67-1

Aizaz Cheema to Vitori, OUT, Vitori is gone, isn't he? a shortish ball outside off that Vitori flails at without moving his feet, a nick through to first slip where Younis Khan has pouched it, Pakistan are celebrating, Vitori was starting to walk off when he was stopped by Mawoyo, I think Younis got his hands under it but it is hard to tell on the replays, it's taking a long time to reach a decision and finally the umpires send Vitori on his way.

BV Vitori c Younis Khan b Aizaz Cheema 14 (26m 17b 3x4 0x6) SR: 82.35

Zimbabwe 394/8   TMK Mawoyo 155* (435b 19x4)   Aizaz Cheema 25.2-10-71-2

Aizaz Cheema to Jarvis, OUT, a reverse-swinging yorker from Cheema takes out the offstump, that was far too good for Jarvis, he belatedly tries to get his bat down and crouches, only to see the ball has gone past to dislodge off stump, great sight for a fast bowler

KM Jarvis b Aizaz Cheema 0 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 394/9   TMK Mawoyo 155* (441b 19x4)   Aizaz Cheema 26.1-11-71-3

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   TMK Mawoyo 163* (453b 20x4)   Aizaz Cheema 28.4-11-79-4
