    13.6 now he gets him! Gurbaz walks across to the off side but leaves his stumps exposed, Williams firing in a full ball that scoots behind his legs and clatters into the timber. The umpire asks them to have another look for the no-ball ... but this one is a legitimate delivery, just! Williams really pushing the line though 116/3
    9.3 top edge, and this one is held! Zazai bent down low to set himself for a slog sweep, but the ball bounced a little more than he was expecting, ballooning off the top edge. Mutumbami settles under it at short third man, and holds a simple chance 83/1
    12.6 big appeal, and it's given! Shafiqullah was aiming for a slog sweep, but swung past the ball, which hit him on the upper thigh. He was down on one knee in front of the stumps, and adjacent by the looks of things. But he asks for a review, which only serves to confirm the dismissal. No bat on it, three reds, and that's plumb 107/2
    15.3 a big heave, sliced and caught! Tino delivers a googly, going across him and taking the top edge of Najibullah's slog sweep. Madziva and Mutumbami are both interested in the catch, but it's Madziva, running across from short third man, who calls for it and holds on 124/5
    14.5 caught at short fine leg, simple chance. Three wickets in three overs, and Zimbabwe are clawing their way back. Mpofu delivers another slower cutter, on his legs, and Nabi top edges his flick into the leg side. Jarvis takes a few steps in from fine leg, and makes no mistake 121/4
    18.3 this time it's the full pace bouncer, and it rushes on to him, hurrying another attempted pull. The ball bursts off the splice, and Ndlovu holds the skied catch at deep midwicket 140/6
    19.3 Mpofu has another! He delivers a slower cutter, full and outside off. Niazai aims for the stands down the ground, but can't get enough on it, Burl holding a regulation chance down at long on 154/7
    not out
    19.5 gone first ball! Asghar has come in down the order, and fallen first ball. The ball was full and wide outside off, and he sliced underneath it to present a steepling chance to Ndlovu, running back from short third man. He tumbles over as he takes the catch, but holds on to give Mpofu his career-best figures in this format 155/8
