    3.3 Chigumbura picks up a second, Tamim looking to drive through the off side, the ball moves away and with it takes the edge to Taibu behind the wicket to his left. Bangladesh in a spot of bother at 5 for 2. 5/2
    1.2 length delivery outside the off stump and Siddique drives on the up but there is no timing, goes in the air to Matsikenyeri at cover, who gobbles up an easy catch. 0/1
    14.6 Ashraful falls, looking for the big booming drive through the off side, there was width and he edges it through to Taibu, Chigumbura is excited, picks up his third wicket. 41/3
    18.3 suicide! tossed up delivery, Raqibul works it away behind square on the leg side and calls for the single, Shakib takes a couple of steps and then changes his mind but its too late for Raqibul as Chigumbura's throw comes in at the striker's end and Taibu clips the bails with Raqibul out by a long way 56/4
    19.1 Shakib too departs! good length delivery outside the off stump, hint of away swing there. Shakib drives well away from his body and ends up with a faint edge - was a nothing shot and Taibu does the rest. Bangladesh 5 down and in deep trouble here. 58/5
    46.5 moves across and takes it on the full and looking to play it fine past the keeper but scoops it to the left of Taibu, who moves quickly to take the catch. 186/10
    19.3 That's the end of that! Bangladesh in total disarray here! back of a length and close to the off stump line, came in with the angle. Mahmudullah looks to work it away on the leg side but fails miserably and the edge goes straight to Price at first slip. Four more to go 62/6
    34.6 sweeps and gets a top edge, the ball flies to deep backward square leg and Coventry takes the catch. 115/7
    37.6 tossed up delivery and Razzaq swings it high in the air, a miscued shot outside the circle at midwicket, Utseya judges it well and takes a good catch, he then runs forward and then seems to just fall down on the ground, he seems to have hurt his ankle. 124/8
    46.1 full toss and Dolar swings once again but this time miscues it high in the air and Masakadza takes the catch at extra cover. 178/9

    12.4 Four down and a stunner to remove Masakadza. It was short and slightly wide, Masakadza gave it the full treatment and it flew to the left of backward point where Raqibul pulled of a very fine reflex catch. Masakadza looks stunned and he should be. That was a sharp catch 54/4
    7.1 dead plumb in front. It was the armer, drifting in the on the middle stump line, Chibhaba, who was struggling against spin, leaned forward to defend but pushed outside the line, perhaps expecting the ball to turn away. Mistake. The ball hit him right in front of the middle. Gone! 39/1
    7.2 Another easy decision to make for Nadir Shah. Another arm ball. It landed just outside off stump and moved in. Taylor moved forward rather hesitantly unsure whether its going to turn away or come in. The ball moved in past the poke and hit him in front. It would have hit leg and middle or at least the leg stump. 39/2
    7.5 What is going on out there?! Comical stuff from Taibu. Again he shapes to sweep way ahead before the delivery is bowled; the ball drops short and turns away from the off stump. Taibu, already on a bent knee, tries to adjust and tries to swat it to the on side but only drags it back to his stumps. Three wickets in this over. Zimbabwe struggling here after quite a decent start 39/3
    20.6 Important breakthrough achieved. It was the short delivery outside off, Coventry tried to fetch it from there as he went for the pull but didn't connect well and it lobbed up. Razzak ran in from deep midwicket and caught it on the rebound. 90/5
