3.2 caught at mid off! Taylor came down the track, looking to clear the infield, but he sliced under the ball. Tucker backtracked from mid off, tumbling backwards at the vital moment to hold onto a swirling chance. Early wickets for Ireland 20/2
    2.1 and he strikes straight away! Masakadza's poor form continues. There was no loosener from Young, and his first ball was short and climbing on leg stump. Masakadza chanced a pull at it, but the ball came off the back of the bat and spooned to second slip instead 12/1
    11.2 caught in the deep! This was an excellent effort on the hoof from Kane, running around from midwicket to wide long on after Ervine cracked a high full toss out in his direction. He had plenty of ground to make, and a long on fielder in his eyeline, as well as the boundary marker. Top catch 112/5
    7.6 a full toss brings relief! Williams might have hit this anywhere. It was a low full toss outside off, and he tried to slot it over the cover field, but couldn't get enough underneath it. Stirling tumbles to his right to hold a low catch, and Ireland have some respite 87/3
    10.2 skied to extra cover! Raza spotted a full one outside off and aimed for the long off boundary, but could only send a swirling top edge into the grey sky above the ground. Adair gets himself underneath it and holds on 108/4
    12.6 fetched into the leg side, where Getkate at midwicket sprints around to cut it off, hurling the ball back in to Wilson as the batsmen take him on for an unlikely second. Burl's run out, but Zimbabwe have reached a hefty total 132/8
    11.5 Moor holes out, Adair has his fourth! It was a knee-high full toss, aimed at middle stump, and Moor aimed to power it over the midwicket boundary. But he got more height than distance, Balbirnie coming in from the boundary to hold the catch 117/6
    12.4 tumbling catch from Tucker at fine leg! Young dug this one in short, hurrying Mutumbami's pull. He didn't bother trying to keep it down, but couldn't get a good enough connection to clear the rope, Tucker making good ground and then tumbling forward to hold a low catch 127/7
