    10.3 he's picked out deep point! Pressure talks. This was a fuller delivery outside off, Tamim spotted an opportunity for a flay over point. Manages to do so, but forgets all about the man in the deep. Hami M continues to be the thorn in Bangladesh's side 31/2
    3.6 he's missed a straight ball! Caught in the crease against a fuller ball that was missing off and missing leg and hitting middle. Overestimates the angle into him and went for a flick, played all around it, and has to walk back 14/1
    11.1 catch it, they cry, and Taylor has pulled off a stunner! Kayes goes for a flick and thinks he has nailed it, only to watch short midwicket move to his right, stick out a hand over his head and pluck it out of thin air 31/3
    not out
    12.2 that's the big wicket, and its come off a slower ball! It was full, it was wide, it was tempting and Shakib could not help himself. Leaned into a booming drive and realises he was at the ball way too early. Scoops it up for short cover. 32/4
    37.3 top-edge and cover takes a dolly! Mushy cannot believe he has got out so softly. It was slower through the air and pitched on off to tempt a slog sweep. There was just enough turn to make the batsman miscue the shot and Zimbabwe have finally broken through 166/5
    39.4 holes out at deep fine leg! He had to reach out a fair distance in front of him and only manages a top edge that lands in Chakabva's hands 175/6
    40.2 length on off stump and he has hoisted it straight up. It was the slower ball, and he had loaded up for the big shot far too early. Bat face turns in his hands and mid-on collects a simple catch 177/7
    48.2 nicks off to the keeper and Zimbabwe will breathe a sigh of relief. it was a good length ball outside off and Mashrafe was looking to smoke it over cow corner. Ends up outside edging to Moor behind the stumps 242/8

    12.2 bowled him! That was the arm ball again and Masakadza had no clue. Plays a long way away from his body and presents a big gate for the ball to sneak through and crash into the stumps 51/2
    10.1 given! The arm ball does the trick again, as he presses forward to defend and ends up playing down the wrong line. Kept on going with the angle, looked to hit his front pad pretty much right in front. Only doubt may have been because of the angle he's bowling from, so wide of the crease, but the umpire seemed quite sure 48/1
    16.5 bowled him! It's the wrong 'un, and it's surprised Maruma, who went back and across, maybe to punch the ball through the covers. In the end, he brought his bat down hurriedly to try and squeeze it into the on side but it rips off the surface and sneaks between bat and body and clips the off bail. Lovely way to get your first ODI wicket 60/3
    34.6 gone! It's another bouncer, outside off this time, and he has the width to try and ramp that behind the wicket, but he doesn't really get that much bat on it, and ends up hitting it straight to the keeper 172/5
    33.5 and he's broken the partnership. Tossed it up, and he went for the big drive and maybe didn't quite get to the pitch, ends up hitting it at chest height, straight to Mahmudullah at cover 166/4
    46.3 makes room to hit over the off side, ends up going too far away from the length ball outside off. Reaches across to hit it over cover, ends up slicing a high catch to point 211/7
    39.3 slower ball outside off and he goes for the big hit, away from his body. Wasn't full enough to drive anyway, and he miscues it high in the air, and spoons a simple catch to mid-off 183/6
    47.1 gone! Pushed it towards point and went for the quick single. Hit it straight to the fielder but the desire to bring Moor on strike was a more pressing factor than the feasibility of the single. Throw came in, keeper whipped the bails off, and Moor was nowhere near his crease 217/8
