TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.65, 86 Mins)153/5
Fall of wickets: 1-100 (Sikandar Raza, 12.3 ov), 2-125 (Chamu Chibhabha, 16.6 ov), 3-142 (Sean Williams, 18.4 ov), 4-142 (Craig Ervine, 18.5 ov), 5-146 (Elton Chigumbura, 19.1 ov)
19.1 to E Chigumbura, Zimbabwe are stumbling on the charge! Chigumbura came down the track and aimed to hit this over long off, but he sliced underneath the ball and Gulbadin had plenty of time to set himself for the catch at long off.. 146/5
16.6 to CJ Chibhabha, leg stump is out the ground! Dawlat's yorker is too good for Chamu. He backed slightly away to leg, but the bowler followed him with an inswinging yorker and the leg stump was pegged right back.. 125/2
18.4 to SC Williams, yorker does the trick! Dawlat spears the swinging ball at the base of off stump, and once again the stump is knocked clear out of the ground. These wickets are keeping Zimbabwe in check.. 142/3
18.5 to CR Ervine, he's on a hat-trick! Dawlat charges in and shatters the middle stump with a searing yorker. This is tremendous death bowling. Ervine took a step forward and jabbed his bat down in a hurry, but the ball was already past him.. 142/4
12.3 to Sikandar Raza, tame end! Raza walked down at this one, and Rashid really held the ball back, flighting it up high. The batsman was done in the flight, thrusting his bat out too soon at the ball, to offer a simple return catch to the bowler.. 100/1

TOTAL19.1 Ov (RR: 8.03, 78 Mins)154/4
Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Mohammad Shahzad, 6.1 ov), 2-58 (Usman Ghani, 7.3 ov), 3-82 (Asghar Afghan, 10.2 ov), 4-85 (Karim Sadiq, 10.6 ov)
6.1 to Mohammad Shahzad, he's gone! Shahzad bends low and slugs a slog sweep straight to Ervine at midwicket. He was the only fielder inside the ring on the leg side.. 48/1
7.3 to Usman Ghani, bowled him! Ghani has been struggling to put the ball away, and the pressure has eventually told. He jumped down the track and swung wildly, his head pointed to the sky, and the ball shuttled straight on with the arm to disturb the stumps.. 58/2
10.6 to Karim Sadiq, caught behind! Williams came over the wicket, and this pitched on middle and spun away. Sadiq pressed forward, and Mutumbami held the thin edge. Second wicket in the over for Zimbabwe.. 85/4
