Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-51 (Mohammad Shahzad, 13.5 ov), 2-124 (Noor Ali Zadran, 30.4 ov), 3-124 (Nawroz Mangal, 30.6 ov), 4-124 (Asghar Afghan, 31.3 ov), 5-138 (Mohammad Nabi, 35.5 ov), 6-149 (Samiullah Shinwari, 39.1 ov), 7-178 (Rashid Khan, 46.1 ov), 8-222 (Shafiqullah, 49.3 ov)
49.3 to Shafiqullah, safe hands! Chamu is usually very good on the high ball and in the outfield. Shafiqullah wanted to blast another six, but he got much more height than distance in the shot. Chamu had to run in as the ball swirled around in a strong breeze, but he set himself right underneath it and held on.. 222/8
31.3 to Asghar Stanikzai, Afghanistan are crumbling! Stanikzai has barely allowed himself a sighter at Jongwe, and again he's set himself at the crease and had a huge go at the ball. This time he wanted to attack the leg side, the delivery being just short of a length, but he was beaten by the inward movement, the ball taking the bottom edge and Mutumbami holding a fine catch tumbling forward as the ball died in front of him. 124/4
39.1 to Samiullah Shinwari, bowled him! Masakadza strikes straight away! Shenwari set himself for a mighty sweep to leg, but the ball rushed straight on with the arm, nipping under the bat and shattering the timber. 149/6
30.4 to Noor Ali Zadran, bowled him! Noor Ali wanted to sweep this, but he didn't read the pace well and the ball shot past him before he was in position, knocking back his leg stump. Chisoro loves it! He turns and stands, arms outstretched and legs spread wide, in an Afridi-style celebration. That's the breakthrough Zimbabwe needed. 124/2
30.6 to Nawroz Mangal, he's gone second ball! This was a quicker ball, and it was slightly short. Mangal leaned back to pull, and struck the ball very cleanly. Unfortunately, Luke Jongwe was prowling on the deep midwicket boundary, and he sprinted around to hold an athletic catch, diving forward. That's a really good effort from the fielder. He timed his dive just right, plucking the ball out of the air just in time, and holding on as his elbows hit the turf. Double strike!. 124/3
13.5 to Mohammad Shahzad, got him! Shahzad wanted to have a go straight away, and sprinted down the track looking to launch this all the way to Bulawayo Airport. But he ran right past the ball as he swung his bat, and it crashed into his middle stump. Williams breaksthrough!. 51/1
46.1 to Rashid Khan, fine catch by Mutumbami! He's not had an easy job behind the stumps today, but this is an excellent reflex catch. Rashid bent low to slog sweep, but turn and bounce meant the ball took a thin top edge. Mutumbami whipped his gloves up and held it cleanly, Nigel Llong upholding the appeal for caught behind.. 178/7

TOTAL49.4 Ov (RR: 4.61, 205 Mins)229/4
Fall of wickets: 1-40 (Chamu Chibhabha, 9.6 ov), 2-78 (Craig Ervine, 21.6 ov), 3-117 (Richmond Mutumbami, 28.2 ov), 4-178 (Sean Williams, 42.4 ov)
9.6 to CJ Chibhabha, what a way to get a wicket! Chamu backed away and chopped down on the ball, which bounced and was headed back towards the stumps. He stuck his hand out to catch it, reflexively, and tossed it away. Shahzad was alert to the error, appealing straight away, and Nigel Llong gives Chamu out for handling the ball. Chamu is the first Zim batsman to be given out handling the ball. 40/1
21.6 to CR Ervine, bowled him! Ervine comes half forward, and the ball spins in sharply through bat and pad to castle him. Afghanistan break through, somewhat against the run of play.. 78/2
28.2 to R Mutumbami, caught this time! And this was a really good effort, on the run. Mutumbami kneeled down to slog sweep, and though he got a good connection he didn't get it wide enough of a sprinting fielder at deep midwicket. It's Rashid.. 117/3
42.4 to SC Williams, caught at long on! One felt that something like this was coming. He wanted to hurry Zimbabwe's win, but he's chipped the ball cleanly down long on's throat. It's probably too little too late for Afghanistan.. 178/4
