    13.1 at long last Sibanda perishes to the pull, it has been fascinating to watch how bull-headed he has been, surely someone has told him to shelve the shot for a while, anyway he goes for it when he sees the short ball, top edge and its a skier for the keeper, easy take for Adnan, Sibanda's troubled stay is over 36/2
    4.1 and there's the first breakthrough, a length ball around off stump, Chibhabha tries a lofted drive on the up, he can't get it past mid-off, who moves across to his left to take that one 14/1
    43.4 will wonders never cease? Misbah has pulled off a direct hit, and that's the end of Masakadza, it was an overpitched ball and just outside off, crunched towards extra cover, a tight single is attempted, Misbah fires it in on the bounce, and that hits the top of the stumps with Masakadza well short, third umpire not needed for this, the two batsmen nearly collided at the middle, that cost Masakadza plenty of time, he had to give way to Taibu, he didn't even bother trying to make his ground, just hoping that the throw was wide 176/4
    37.4 short and wide ball, Taylor looks to uppercut that one, he gets hold of it well and it goes fine, but the third man has been placed fine for him, and is awaiting the catch, the Pakistan fans love it, a bunch of them running around with a Pakistan flag aloft 140/3
    47.2 Tanvir bowls from wide of the crease, Taibu was going for a powerful heave, he misses and the off stump is a few yards behind where it was originally, big blow for Zimbabwe, Taibu was the man they wanted for the home stretch 198/6
    46.3 and is that another run-out? Mohammad Hafeez dives to his left at extra cover to stop a fierce drive from Taibu, the ball has rolled a few yards away from him, he collects it and throws it to the keeper, who had been hollering for the ball, the batsmen had initially wanted two before Waller was sent back, he diving in desperation but he can't make it, third umpire is called for but Waller knows he out 194/5
