Chatara to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, 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

Mohammad Hafeez c Sibanda b Chatara 5 (26m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 29.41

Pakistan 13/1   Khurram Manzoor 8* (22b 2x4)   TL Chatara 3.3-2-5-1

Panyangara to Khurram Manzoor, OUT, 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

Khurram Manzoor lbw b Panyangara 11 (48m 38b 2x4 0x6) SR: 28.94

Pakistan 21/2   Azhar Ali 5* (16b)   T Panyangara 5.5-0-13-1

Panyangara to Younis Khan, OUT, 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

Younis Khan b Panyangara 3 (11m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pakistan 27/3   Azhar Ali 8* (20b)   T Panyangara 7-0-15-2

Utseya to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, 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

Misbah-ul-Haq c Sibanda b Utseya 53 (134m 94b 7x4 0x6) SR: 56.38

Pakistan 120/4   Azhar Ali 48* (120b 6x4)   P Utseya 6.2-0-18-1

Utseya to Asad Shafiq, OUT, 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

Asad Shafiq c Mawoyo b Utseya 4 (14m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pakistan 132/5   Azhar Ali 56* (132b 8x4)   P Utseya 8.2-0-22-2

Chatara to Adnan Akmal, OUT, 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

Adnan Akmal b Chatara 18 (39m 36b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 157/6   Azhar Ali 63* (152b 9x4)   TL Chatara 14.4-3-38-2

SW Masakadza to Abdur Rehman, OUT, 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

Abdur Rehman lbw b SW Masakadza 7 (31m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 22.58

Pakistan 173/7   Azhar Ali 70* (171b 9x4)   SW Masakadza 17-6-35-1

SW Masakadza to Azhar Ali, OUT, 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

Azhar Ali c Sibanda b SW Masakadza 78 (263m 185b 9x4 0x6) SR: 42.16

Pakistan 182/8   Saeed Ajmal 1* (7b)   SW Masakadza 18.3-6-38-2

Panyangara to Junaid Khan, OUT, 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

Junaid Khan c †Mutumbami b Panyangara 17 (79m 53b 2x4 0x6) SR: 32.07

Pakistan 249/9   Saeed Ajmal 49* (64b 6x4 1x6)   T Panyangara 19.5-2-71-3

Chatara to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, 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

Saeed Ajmal b Chatara 49 (93m 65b 6x4 1x6) SR: 75.38

Pakistan 249/10   Rahat Ali 0* (1b)   TL Chatara 22.1-6-64-3
