Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Wessly Madhevere, 6.4 ov), 2-22 (Craig Ervine, 7.6 ov), 3-33 (Innocent Kaia, 12.4 ov), 4-42 (Dion Myers, 15.1 ov), 5-77 (Regis Chakabva, 28.1 ov), 6-98 (Sikandar Raza, 36.5 ov), 7-113 (Milton Shumba, 41.1 ov), 8-124 (Tendai Chatara, 42.6 ov), 9-124 (Ryan Burl, 43.1 ov), 10-135 (Blessing Muzarabani, 44.5 ov)
6.4 to W Madhevere, well.. well.! Madhevere shimmies down to nullify the swing but in the process he left a huge gap between pad and bat. Farooqi sees the shimmy and shortens the length a bit. Madhevere on the move wasn't committed to the shot he was aiming, the ball nips in, takes the inside edge and the leg pole goes for an early walk. 21/1
36.5 to Sikandar Raza, short delivery and he goes for the pull shot, miscues it high in the air to deep midwicket, a simple catch to Mujeeb in the deep.. 98/6
7.6 to CR Ervine, there it is.. heaps of dots and and plays one upishly. It was full outside off. Ervine gets onto the front foot and drives on the up. Rashid at cover swoops low to his right and takes a good catch. 22/2
12.4 to I Kaia, loud cry for leg before and given. This was a googly, pitched outside off, spat back in. Kaia on the back foot was playing for the one which would leave him but this one came back in to thump the pad. Kaia challenges the decision. Replay confirms it would have hit the top of middle. Zimbabwe lose another wicket and a review. 33/3
15.1 to D Myers, Azmatullah gets one and it's Myers. Zimbabwe lose four. Back of a length, Myers goes for a cross bat slog across the line, the ball didn't bounce as much as he would've expected and castles the stumps. 42/4
28.1 to RW Chakabva, tossed up delivery, comes forward and plays down the wrong line, strikes the pad in line. Loud appeal and given. Chakabva reviews it. That is going to hit the leg stump. Chakabva has to walk back. It is umpires call.. 77/5
42.6 to TL Chatara, googly tossed up fuller, drives and gets an inside edge, the off stump is uprooted.. 124/8
44.5 to B Muzarabani, that is straight and full, strikes low on the pad, loud appeal and given. Zimbabwe review it as they have one more left. Hits the pad in line, will go onto hit the leg stump, it is umpires call.. 135/10
41.1 to M Shumba, makes room and Nabi bowls a quicker delivery, he is a bit late on it and the leg stump is pegged back.. 113/7
43.1 to RP Burl, another one bites the dust, moves forward and drives in the air behind point and Ibrahim Zadran takes the catch.. 124/9

Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 3.5 ov), 2-30 (Ibrahim Zadran, 10.4 ov), 3-39 (Rahmat Shah, 14.5 ov), 4-60 (Najibullah Zadran, 20.6 ov), 5-105 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 32.1 ov), 6-118 (Azmatullah Omarzai, 35.5 ov)
10.4 to Ibrahim Zadran, gone! Muzarabani flexes his biceps. It was full, wide outside off. Zadran gets onto the front foot to play this through the cover but was undone by the length there. He wasn't to the pitch of the ball either and an outside edge finds skipper Ervine at second slip who dives to his left to grab this. 50th catch for Ervine in ODIs. 30/2
14.5 to Rahmat Shah, that's the wicket they needed.. Persisting with Muzarabani has paid off. It was back of a length ball, the line was wider too. Another Afghan batter goes fishing outside off and an outside edge finds Ervine at second slip.. easy-peasy. 39/3
3.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, live by the sword die by the sword - Chatara drags his length back a bit and the ball did all the talking. Pitched on off, held it's line and catches the outside edge. Gurbaz was hanging back there. Raza at second slip takes a sharp catch. 7/1
20.6 to Najibullah Zadran, gone! This is top class bowling and impressive captaincy. Back of a length on stump, angled away. Najib lazily opens the face to run past the slip but gets too much bat. Sikandar Raza out there snaffles a good low catch to his left. 60/4
32.1 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, width and he throws his bat at it and gets the edge to the keeper, Zimbabwe pick up a crucial wicket, is it too late.. 105/5
35.5 to Azmatullah Omarzai, stays back and punches in the air to the off side to short cover, taken by Myers. Is there a twist in the tale.. 118/6
