    7.6 edged and taken. That's a rather poor shot. Chases a delivery he had no business playing. No effort to get behind the line or move closer to the pitch. Simply stands in the crease and swings big to get a discernible edge to the keeper 30/3
    0.1 loops one up around leg and it comes on with the arm to drift down the leg side. Mire tries to clip but gets beaten because of how sharp the drift is. Loses shape and loosely takes the backfoot out of the crease and the keeper whips the bails off 2/1
    0.3 catching practice to midwicket. Two in the opening over for Bangladesh. Loops up a half-volley that angles in around middle and off and Ervine chips the clip straight into the hands of midwicket 2/2
    16.4 he's been probing away in that channel and gets an outside edge finally. This one's the quicker conventional delivery and Taylor sticks the bat out to get a good, clear edge to the keeper. Zimbabwe sinking now 51/4
    39.1 mix up! Is Raza run out? Full on middle, turned off his toes to square leg. Raza wants the quick run, but it's not there. He's halfway down before Moor asks him to turn back. Falls short by a few inches. Never a single, there. 131/6
    25.4 makes amends! Floats another one on off stump, too close to cut once again, and it's edged through to Sabbir at first slip. Sharp, sharp catch. Taken low to his right 81/5
    47.3 yorker on middle stump! Backs away too much, as the delivery crashes into the base of the stumps. Moved away too much, and the ball was accurate! 167/8
    45.3 full and wide outside off, hit very well but straight down long off's throat! Sharply taken by the fielder in the deep, racing in and diving forward. Struck hard, but off the toe end. Low catch to Rubel. Appreciation from the bowler 161/7
    not out
    47.4 on a hat trick! Inside edge ricochets onto middle stump! Overpitched full and wide outside off, tries to drive at it, but no movement of the feet 167/9
    48.6 good length on off stump, and straightens after pitching. The batsman plays down the wrong line as the ball sneaks past the outside of his bat. The cutter earns Fizz another wicket. Zimbabwe are all out for 170. 170/10
