View dismissal Khurram Manzoor lbw b Panyangara 11 48 38 2 0 28.94
11.5 he's been given, that is a quick offbreak, this has to have hit a crack, was angled in alright, but pitched far outside off and then changed direction alarmingly, Manzoor had little chance of keeping it out, even as he flashed from the crease, hit at the top of the pad in front of off, height has to be an issue here, but not for umpire Martinesz 21/2
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Sibanda b Chatara 5 26 17 0 0 29.41
6.3 Chatara's struck with the new ball, good length delivery angled in to off stump, Hafeez, as he does so often, pushes from the crease as it bounces extra, and the edge carries to second slip 13/1
View dismissal Azhar Ali c Sibanda b SW Masakadza 78 263 185 9 0 42.16
71.3 Shingi gets a bigger reward now, he's drawn Azhar into a loose drive to a wide delivery, and the thick edge has been snapped up at second slip, so both batsmen who have got starts have fallen in uncharacteristic fashion, first Misbah, now Azhar 182/8
View dismissal Younis Khan b Panyangara 3 11 9 0 0 33.33
13.6 oh dear, who would have thought Zimbabwe would have Pakistan three down early in the morning, Younis unlucky here, can't be blamed much, was coming forward to defend, althought not fully, the length delivery bounced, took the bat and onto the crease, Younis, whose forward push by then had taken him a few steps down the pitch, could only watch it roll into the stumps, would have had a chance of preventing that had he been closer 27/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Sibanda b Utseya 53 134 94 7 0 56.38
46.2 Oh, that's a brilliant grab. Sibanda with another catch and he sends the Pakistan captain packing. Tosses it up and Misbah ventures down the track to give it the big heave-ho. But the ball dips a little to mess with his timing and he doesn't get the height he wants as short midwicket leaps into the air and pulls out a blinder 120/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c Mawoyo b Utseya 4 14 12 1 0 33.33
50.2 Oh, he's lost it too. Pakistan gift another wicket to Zimbabwe. This was tossed up and Shafiq charges down the pitch to lift him over the top. But all he manages is an inside edge which brushes his pads and goes off to backward short leg where Mawoyo holds on to a simple chance 132/5
View dismissal Adnan Akmal b Chatara 18 39 36 1 0 50.00
59.4 got him third time, Chatara had gone past the edge previous two deliveries, this time Adnan, stuck in the crease, wafts away from the body at a length ball bouncing outside off stump and inside-edges onto the stumps, they check for the no-ball, and Chatara has about a few millimetres behind the line when he lands 157/6
View dismissal Abdur Rehman lbw b SW Masakadza 7 31 31 1 0 22.58
67.6 Shingi's deserved some reward for his probing lines, he's been moving it away from the right-handers all day, this one arrives as a full inswinger for the left-hander, who plays all around it and is caught plumb in front of middle stump 173/7
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal b Chatara 49 93 65 6 1 75.38
90.1 no half-century for Ajmal, he's gone on the first ball he face today, his unconventional technique worked well for him yesterday, but today his weak attempt at keeping the ball out fails, the ball slants in between the big bat-pad gap and crashes into the top of off, Pakistan bowled out for 249 249/10
View dismissal Junaid Khan c †Mutumbami b Panyangara 17 79 53 2 0 32.07
89.5 rush of blood for Junaid! He was looking to smash that out of the ground, Panyangara pitched it up and moved it away and Junaid went for the big hit over the off side, thin edge to the keeper 249/9

8.1 the change in angle works straightaway, Mawoyo has nicked it through to the keeper, the ball angled in and seamed away just a touch, Mawoyo didn't cover for the movement and edges it through, Pakistan have the first breakthrough, not much footwork from Mawoyo, initially wanted to go forward but after a half-hearted step, he moved back and was caught on the crease 25/1
View dismissal V Sibanda c †Adnan Akmal b Junaid Khan 31 118 85 6 0 36.47
26.6 gone this time, the angle from round the stumps has worked for Junaid. It was on length outside off to be driven and Sibanda did so but he managed only an edge to the keeper this time 68/2
View dismissal H Masakadza* b Saeed Ajmal 19 80 52 2 1 36.53
27.1 double blow for Zimbabwe! Ajmal gets Masakadza now. It was flighted outside off and came in, Masakadza covered the stumps by leaning forward to defend but it didn't turn that much and took the top of off stump 68/3
View dismissal Sikandar Raza c Misbah-ul-Haq b Saeed Ajmal 60 164 118 10 0 50.84
68.2 Ajmal strikes again, he pitched it up and Raza came down the track and went hard at it, only to hand it straight to Misbah at midwicket. Both the set batsmen have been removed 212/5
View dismissal MN Waller c Mohammad Hafeez b Saeed Ajmal 70 131 100 14 0 70.00
60.3 Ajmal has struck! He tossed it up well outside off, enticing Waller to drive, which he did and the outside edge goes around chest height to Hafeez at first slip 195/4
View dismissal E Chigumbura c Azhar Ali b Saeed Ajmal 69 185 129 8 0 53.48
103.2 and now he's gone. The inside edge lobs off the pad and straight into the hands of Azhar Ali at short leg. This one was tossed up around middle and Chigumbura lunged forward with hard hands. Easy catch to put the final wicket pair at the crease 327/9
View dismissal R Mutumbami lbw b Saeed Ajmal 13 22 13 3 0 100.00
72.6 the doosra was too good for him, landed around off and middle and Mutumbami was trying to play it to the on side assuming it was an off break, struck on the pad, plumb as it gets 235/6
View dismissal P Utseya b Rahat Ali 16 50 43 3 0 37.20
85.6 the middle stump goes cartwheeling! Utseya would have seen this coming, Rahat lands this one on middle, the ball bends back in slightly in the air and goes through the big gap between pad and bat, hits the middle stump and the furniture is tossed more than a few yards back 278/7
View dismissal SW Masakadza lbw b Saeed Ajmal 14 52 39 1 0 35.89
97.3 Ajmal gets his five-for, that was too good for Masakadza, a flighted delivery that rips in, Masakadza waits on the back foot, struck in front, huge appeal, easy decision for the umpire, Masakadza has done his job though 310/8

5.5 Oh, he's misread the line of that. Goes well forward but offers no shot and he's struck in line, if a little high, on the very top of the pad actually, but the umpire finds favour with the bowler's appeal. This one was full, but the shape takes the ball in. Manzoor was expecting it to curve away and he pays the price. He was out leg before in the first innings as well, and that was a tad high too 17/1
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Mawoyo b Chatara 16 44 27 4 0 59.25
10.2 length ball outside off and Hafeez drives one uppishly through extra-cover, right into the hands of Tino Mawoyo at short extra-cover. Brilliant low take from Mawoyo, as Pakistan are reduced to 23 for 3, still trailing by 55 runs. Don't forget, Pakistan were 27 for 3 in the first innings. History repeating perhaps? 23/3

7.3 length ball on middle and off, looks a bit high as it hits the knee roll. Panyangara and Zimbabwe go up in appeal. The umpire raises his finger after some deliberation. But this one definitely looked like it was going over. Azhar Ali is out for a duck 21/2

58.6 that's a lollipop for cover and Misbah is gone! It was slightly slower and full outside off, Misbah played it early, he drove and it was the simplest of catches for Vusi Sibanda who didn't have to move at cover. Big wicket being celebrated by the Zimbabweans 139/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq b Chatara 15 44 37 2 0 40.54
70.5 Chatara strikes in the first over! It's gone through the gate. It was on length outside off and came in, Shafiq defended tentatively without footwork and it went through to hit the top of the stumps. That was Shafiq's first ball of the morning and Zimbabwe start well, yet again 169/5
View dismissal Adnan Akmal run out (Sikandar Raza/SW Masakadza/Panyangara) 64 194 154 8 0 41.55
116.5 from SW Masakadza, full delivery just outside off and Adnan square drives this as the pair go for a run. Adnan turns back for the run with Younis ball-watching at the other end. By the time Younis sees his partner, he is already more than halfway up for the return run. The fielder is able to throw it to Shingi, near the striker's end, who lobs it to a fielder who runs out Adnan. Against the run of play and Zimbabwe will be particularly buoyed 287/6

129.6 he is gone this time! No question about that! Ajmal doesn't use the preferred method of taking a forward stride. Instead, he goes on the back foot, the ball pitches, turns, stays low, and hits him in front of the middle stump. As much painful getting out is for a batsman, this would actually encourage Ajmal.. 313/8

33.4 oh dear, this is a perfect guide to slip for catching practice, it was tossed up, Chigumbura, who'd edged the previous one trying to drive, waited on the front foot this time, and tried to run it late past slip, rather half-heartedly, as if he was unsure what exactly to do, found the man with precision instead 89/6

33.4 to Chigumbura, oh dear, this is a perfect guide to slip for catching practice, it was tossed up, Chigumbura, who'd edged the previous one trying to drive, waited on the front foot this time, and tried to run it late past slip, rather half-heartedly, as if he was unsure what exactly to do, found the man with precision instead 89/6
39.4 to Panyangara, does not spin, hits the pad on the forward push in front of off and middle and umpire Martinesz raises his finger 101/9
