SW Masakadza to Benn, OUT, Big Benn falls! Cremer holds on to a steepler and West Indies are succumbing to pressure! Benn goes for an almighty hoick over midwicket and hits it really high. Cremer runs in a long way from the deep midwicket fence and takes it millimetres off the ground. Super catch! 4 off 1, and the batsmen did not cross over, would you believe it!

SJ Benn c Cremer b SW Masakadza 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

SW Masakadza to Smith, OUT, and he botches it up! Great ball under pressure from the debutant, but in the circumstances a really ordinary shot from Smith, who looks to hit the straight ball across the line. He misses and the stumps are rearranged. Benn walks out to the middle. 4 off 2!

DR Smith b SW Masakadza 4 (11m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Chigumbura to Ramdin, OUT, He's a goner! Superb bowling here, keeps it straight and simple. Ramdin goes for an almighty heave through the covers and makes contact with thin air. Timber is struck and he'll have to go back.

D Ramdin b Chigumbura 8 (30m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

SW Masakadza to Chanderpaul, OUT, BIG wicket! Chanderpaul is gone and this game is far from over. Picks the length ball and times it beautifully, probably too beautifully, it carries to Chigumbura at long off, who is standing a few paces in, but holds his nerve and more importantly, holds the catch.

S Chanderpaul c Chigumbura b SW Masakadza 70 (109m 70b 4x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Utseya to Pollard, OUT, Pollard falls. Zimbabwe captain breaks through. It was a loopy flighted delivery on the middle stump line, Pollard doesn't quite get forward, just on drives, sort of chips it uppishly, and straight to mid-on. Chanderpaul is still out there. West Indies five down. Pressure. Game on.

KA Pollard c Taylor b Utseya 5 (22m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.71

Cremer to Chanderpaul, OUT, Deonarine is run out There was an lbw shout and then a run out. Drama. Action. It was the skidder that went on straight on the leg and middle line, Chanderpaul tries to turn it to the leg side and misses. Close shout for lbw turned down by the umpire. Deonarine tries to get across for a single. Mistake. Chanders is not interested and both end up in the striker's end. Taibu rushes to his left, dives to make the stop and throws it back at the non-striker's end. Gone!

N Deonarine run out (†Taibu/Utseya) 17 (16m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Lamb to Fletcher, 1 run, OUT, Well well, what do we have here! Fletcher is gone. Short again and drifting down. He runs it down to short fine leg and turns back for two, but Cremer barreled in a superb throw. Taibu fails to collect, but that was a guided missile heading for the stumps all the same. Deflects off his gloves on to the stumps and Fletcher is well short. The third umpire spent a long time deciding, but it was clear from the first replay. Cremer's the man!

ADS Fletcher run out (Cremer/†Taibu) 6 (10m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Chigumbura to Barath, OUT, And that's out! Bowling change works, pace change works. Short again, but not so wide and Barath again looks for an expansive cut, but only manages to get an inside edge. The stumps are rattled and Barath is gone.

AB Barath b Chigumbura 50 (95m 96b 4x4 1x6) SR: 52.08

Lamb to Gayle, OUT, Trapped in front! Huge wicket this. It drifted in from round the stumps, lands on the middle stump line, and straightens to hit him in front of middle. That's out. Gayle had pressed his front leg across, perhaps tad too across, and had to play around the front pad. Too late. Gone! What a strike by Lamby!

CH Gayle lbw b Lamb 57 (75m 66b 2x4 3x6) SR: 86.36
