    11.2 this is lovely bowling, it was flighted teasingly around off, and lured him forward, it turned across the bat face and Rahim had the bails off in a flash, replays show Taylor's foot was in the air as he pushed forward, he failed to get it back in time, and Razzak has removed the openers 58/2
    9.6 bowled 'em! spin gets Bangladesh the breakthrough, it was flighted nicely on the stumps, Chibhabha went for the big heave over midwicket on one knee, was beaten in flight, and the ball crashed into the stumps, he has thrown away a good start here 53/1
    39.4 what a soft dismissal, he just walked down the track, and hit this flighted delivery straight back to Mahmudullah who goes down to his left as he takes it, Chakabva has thrown it away here, just when Zimbabwe seemed to have got over the tough middle period 159/5
    13.3 the drop hasn't cost Bangladesh much, Razzak is all over them at the moment, it was shortish outside off, but not there for the cut, Elton went for the shot anyway, and drageed the ball on to his stumps, another one goes 71/3
    24.4 this was bound to happen, it was tossed up a bit, he went for the almighty heave, but got it only as far as backward point who took the simplest of catches, Shuvo is pumped up, Zimbabwe are tottering 94/4
    44.4 and Ervine has holed out to long on here, this is slow death, there was no option but to try and go over the top, but he hit it straight to Ashraful at long on 184/6
    47.4 Shuvo has taken an excellent catch at wide long on, Utseys looked to heave it over that region, got it high in the air, and Shuvo ran hard and dived to his right to take the catch, he's been outstanding in the field today, one more Zimbabwe wicket falls 204/8
    46.6 another one goes! it was flighted around off, and he tried to go straight down the ground, but only got it as far as mid off who pouched it, Razzak has four 201/7
    48.3 one more to Shuvo, Meth gave him the blind charge, looking to mow it over midwicket, it turned past him, and Rahim did the rest 207/9
    not out
    48.6 goes for a slow motion paddle sweep, it loops up and falls short of the man at short fine, he fires in the throw, Mpofu was looking for the single, found he had to turn back, tried doing so in slower motion, and was well short of the crease, and that's the end of that 209/10

    10.5 Mpofu belts out an appeal for leg before, and continues to shout till the umpire belatedly raises his finger, it pitched about half a foot outside leg, and struck Tamim on the pads, but he has to walk back, what a decision to get on your comeback 44/1
    20.4 and he's holed out to deep midwicket here! it was tossed up around middle, he skipped down the track, and swung it straight to the man there on the midwicket boundary, Price lets out a roar, Kayes has to walk back 76/2
    21.2 pushes this tossed up delivery in front of point, and they go through with the risky single, the throw is right on the stumps, Taibu has the bails off in a flash, and Junaid is run out by miles, he starts to walk back even before the red light comes on from the third umpire, game on here 82/3
    23.6 and Ashraful is gone! he gave himself room to steer this delivery that turned in quite a bit from outside off, missed the line completely, and heard the death rattle behind him, an early dismissal for Ashraful on his comeback, Zimbabwe are right in this game 89/4
    47.3 and Shakib has fallen! he went for the scoop over short fine leg, and got a top edge that looped up to that man for the simplest of takes, the crowd is stunned, totally, one wicket to go now, shakib was in no position for that shot, just tried to help it on its way 195/9
    26.2 bowled 'em! beats him in flight, it was tossed up around middle and leg, almost yorker length, he played all around it, and it crashed into the stumps, Bangladesh are getting a taste of their own medicine here, Zimbabwe's spinners are on fire at the moment 98/5
    31.5 another one bites the dust. Shuvo is run-out, guiding one from off stump towards point and taking off for a non-existent single. He turned back belatedly, but gave enough time for Chigumbura to pounce on it and fire in a perfect throw for Taibu to do the rest. 115/6
    42.6 Mahmudullah goes for the maximum straight down the ground out of nowhere, and ends up hitting a full delivery down long on's throat, Mpofu is dleighted and does a little jig, important breakthrough for Zimbabwe 169/7
    46.3 and we have a run out here of all things, it was a yorker around off, dug out to backward point, Chibhabha fired in the throw, Shakib was charging down the track, Mash had to run, and sacrificed his wicket as Taibu took off the bails gleefully, and then went down on the ground, Shakib is distraught 187/8
    not out
    48.6 it's all over! Zimbabwe have won, it was full and slapped away to midwicket, they took Taylor on for the single, the throw came in to Meth even as both batsmen were mid-pitch, and Meth took off the bails with a grin, fourth run out of the innings, and Zimbabwe are over the moon 200/10
