    38 short of a length, quick, Saeed pulling, but getting a top edge, loops high in the air for an easy catch to Flower, not even he could drop that one 194/4
    18.5 coming down the pitch, trying the lofted drive on the off drive, is unfortunate to get the outside edge, ball flies high over cover point, Huckle runs in from deep cover to take an excellent running and diving catch 95/1
    21.2 poked on the on side towards the mid wicket, Anwar went to steps forward then decided "to hell with it", and went back to his crease, Ijaz meanwhile had fully committed to the run, Goodwin underarms it to the keeper 116/2
    36 Inzamam coming down the wicket with a totally inappropriate cut or pull, hard to tell really, misses, Flower muffs the stumping at the 1st attempt, but Inzamam was too lazy to go back to his crease, Flower had time to uproot a stump 183/3
    38.4 pitched up, Wasim with a hopeless swipe across the line, ball was pitched well up, turning into the pads, umpire gives it, Zim aren't out of the game yet, India aren't out of tourney yet 195/5
    43.3 Moin has been sent back, backward point throws the stumps down brilliantly, normal TV is inconclusive, so we go to the pana-eye, shows him to be as short of his ground as you can posisbly get 228/6
    48.3 down the wicket, mistimed, didn't get onto it, easy catch for the mid off 260/9
    44.1 and gone, Zimbabwe with a tremendous comeback, brilliant outswinger, clipping the outside edge, to the keeper, Azhar lunging down the wicket trying to drive thru the mid off 231/7
    44.2 bowled! fantastic! yorked him and into the off stump, Streak on a hat trick 231/8

    28.2 around the wicket, seaming in, into the pads, big appeal, Bucknor raises his finger to dismiss Johnson, Zimbabwe and India 95/6
    5.5 no doubt about that one, great delivery, a treat to watch, slight outswing on the yorker, thru the gate, into the middle and leg stump 12/1
    9.3 pulling it straight down the throat of the mid wicket, good shot, shame about the fielder in the way 28/2
    13.4 Flower jumping to play that ball, it had extra bounce with no anchovies, inside edge rolls away and just flicks the leg stump 46/3
    15.2 another great captain's innings from Campbell, top edge goes down the nanny goat of Akram at mid on, he was pulling and obviously pulling badly 50/4
    26.1 quick and outside the off stump, Whittall trying to drive thru the covers, EDGED! and to the 1st slip 83/5

    33.2 thick edge flies wide of the slips, no! Azhar sticks out his right hand and the ball sticks, what a great catch 110/7

    40.3 and he's got it! Mbangwa looks lucky to know which end of the bat to hold, ball was heading to the leg stump, batsman trying to play it on the on side 123/10
