    15.1 What is going on with Zimbabwe? Yet another wicket topples, this time Jadeja pitches on a length right on off stump, with the ball slightly drifting in after pitching. Sibanda plays all around this and ends up getting castled. He is bowled off the pad. Only 15 overs in and this match looks a foregone conclusion. 47/5
    6.4 there's his first wicket in one-day cricket! An excellent ball too. It landed on a good length on off stump, drawing the batsman forward for a defensive push. The ball nipped away off the seam just enough to take the outside edge through to Karthik 16/1
    10.4 Jadeja's taken aim and demolished the stumps at the bowler's end and Masakadza is short of the crease! Masakadza pushed a slower ball towards point and set off. Jadeja got to the ball quickly from point, picked up with his left hand and flung the ball at the stumps in one smooth motion. That's his second direct hit run-out in two games. 36/2
    13.5 an appeal for lbw and after a while the umpire sends Taylor on his way! I thought that was missing leg stump. Jadeja went wide of the crease and angled the ball into the right-hander from round the wicket, Taylor came on to the front foot to defend and was beaten on the inside edge. He was hit in front of leg stump so I think he's unlucky to be given out. That would have missed leg stump 44/3
    14.3 what a ball! pitches on off stump and at a good length. Williams plays inside of the line and ends up having his off stump knocked back. Tough delivery first up. Zimbabwe in real trouble here at 47 for 4 47/4
    36.6 Mohit has produced another outside edge and another wicket! He pitched it on length right on the off stump and it seamed away a bit to take the edge to Karthik, who does well to put his gloves under the ball as it was going to fall short 127/6
    not out
    39.2 another wicket! Short ball outside off and Utseya has room to swing his arms but he hands a simple catch to Rohit Sharma at point. A very loose short from Utseya there 130/7
    40.5 fist wicket for Mishra in the match! It was a conventional legspinner outside off and Chatara tries to sweep it on the leg side but it takes a leading edge and goes high up in the air. Jadeja takes the simplest of catches at cover 133/8
    42.3 bowled him! Pitched it outside off on length, it turned and came into the batsman who tries to cut on the back foot and misses it completely. Second wicket for Mishra 143/9
    42.4 Kohli takes it at slip on this occasion. It pitched on length on off and turned away enough to take Chinouya's outside edge and go straight to first slip. Kohli had to bend down low and he slammed the ball on the ground after getting up. Maybe that's a celebration 144/10
