    0.6 Rasel rounds off a superb over with a wicket, pretty wide outside off, Masakadza swings at it, should have left it alone, gets a thin outside edge to the keeper, a loose shot, and that's a terrible start for Zimababwe 0/1
    42.2 is he run out here? the ball was down the leg side, attempted slower delivery, turned towards square leg by Chigumbura, Vermeulen sprints back for the second but Raqibul is quickly onto the ball, he throws it to the bowler who breaks the stumps with Vermeulen short of his crease, Vermeulen had run the first one very slowly, he only stepped on the gas when he was called for the second 178/7
    7.1 Hossain strikes, that's the end of Chibhabha, not too great a delivery, back of a length just outside off, going straight on, Chibhabha gets a thin edge to the keeper 25/2
    20.5 Taylor is gone lbw, he was pretty unlucky though, the ball looked to be heading for the stumps, but he got a thin inside edge as he defended, and he had got a massive stride in as well 74/3
    28.1 and he strikes first ball, Coventry's aggressive innings comes to an end, he was looking to clear the midwicket boundary, gets a bit of a top edge, and Mahmudullah takes a well-judged catch just within the rope 110/4
    32.4 That's the end of Williams, he was plumb in front, missing the ball as he tries to play it to midwicket, that was a quicker delivery from Mahmudullah, pitching just outside off, struck on the back leg in front of off, no doubt about that 125/5
    38.2 the pressure had been building up, and it shows, Matsikenyeri tries to loft the ball over long-on, doesn't get hold of it though, and Naeem Islam takes a simple catch at long-on 145/6
    43.2 Chigumbura is gone, arm ball accounts for him, a wild heave from Chigumbura, and he misses the ball, and leg stump is lying on the ground 183/8
    47.5 a yorker does the trick, Utseya misses and offstump is struck again, Zimbabwe are bowled out for 207 207/10
    47.2 Price is cleaned up by the slower ball, a legcutter, Price was looking to swing it to midwicket, the ball slides lower than he expects and offstump is uprooted 204/9
