38.5 to Rameez Shahzad, The Harare crowd finds its voice again. Rameez Shah backs away a fair way outside leg and aims to go inside-out over mid-off. He can't deal with the extra bounce and ends up splicing it squarer to extra cover. Captain Cremer settles under this skier. Redemption for Chatara after an inconsistent first spell. 180/4
45.4 to Ahmed Raza, Raza jumps onto Muzarabani. I love this crowd at the HSC. They go berserk again. Another UAE batsman has been bounced out. This was short and outside off, he fetches it from there and miscues a pull to Mire at deep square leg. 211/7
20.2 to Rohan Mustafa, breaks the partnership! A reverse sweep one too many. Pitches full on middle, and hits his front leg as Mustafa misses the shot. Would've gone down to crash into middle. Raza's pumped, and why shouldn't he be? This partnership was cruising along nicely. 92/2
24.1 to Ghulam Shabber, Raza again! Tries to sweep too fine, and exposed his leg stump. The ball crashes into leg stump as Shabbir misses the sweep completely. It was an enticing full ball that seemed like the perfect length to sweep. But the ball hung in the air just that extra bit, thereby forcing the error from the batsman. 106/3
42.4 to Shaiman Anwar, pulled but taken in the deep! Short on middle, but entices the batsman to pull. Hit well off the back foot, but doesn't have the distance. Would've dropped short of Muzarabani, but he commits to the catch, and dives foward to complete it. 198/6
41.3 to Muhammad Usman, Holes out to deep midwicket. Look at the jubilant crowd. Carnival-like atmosphere at the HSC, I repeat. This wasn't a great ball, though. Half-tracker on middle stump, instead of swatting it into the stands Usman pulls straight down the throat of Ervine at deep midwicket. 194/5

TOTAL40 Ov (RR: 5.65)226/7
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Solomon Mire, 2.1 ov), 2-18 (Hamilton Masakadza, 4.6 ov), 3-45 (Brendan Taylor, 11.4 ov), 4-124 (Peter Moor, 27.4 ov), 5-185 (Sikandar Raza, 34.3 ov), 6-206 (Sean Williams, 36.6 ov), 7-209 (Graeme Cremer, 37.4 ov)
2.1 to SF Mire, Naveed beats Mire for pace and rushes a hook. The resultant top edge is well held by square leg. 137ks short ball, fizzes through outside off, Mire has to fetch it from outside off and is late onto his shot. Gone. What an early lift for UAE. 6/1
4.6 to H Masakadza, Naveed hits 140ks and floors Hamilton's off stump. In-between length from Naveed again - neither driveable nor pullable - it keeps low to boot. Starts outside off and cuts back in to shoot through the defences of the opener. Zimbabwe lose their openers and the asking rate has nudged past 6. 18/2
37.4 to AG Cremer, crashes into middle stump! Back of a length on off, and Cremer's pull takes the bottom edge of the bat. Straight into the stumps and the Zimbabwe captain has to go. 209/7
27.4 to PJ Moor, Moor falls! And that's a soft dismissal at cover. Overpitched on off stump, and he tries to bunt it over the infield. Manages to take the bat's toe end, and sits up as an easy catch for the fielder. Silence once again at the HSC. 124/4
11.4 to BRM Taylor, Ahmed Raza bursts through the defences of Taylor. The defeated batsman sumps to his knees. What a crucial blow. This was the quick fizzer, sliding in with the arm, Taylor plays for turn and watches the ball break through his defences. UAE are charged up. The Harare crowd has been hushed into silence. 45/3
34.3 to Sikandar Raza, straight to deep backward square! Full toss on off, and Raza swivels to pull square. Hit well, but no elevation behind that shot. Straight down the fielder's throat. Another twist?. 185/5
36.6 to SC Williams, one-handed stunner! Williams falls for 80. Good length on middle, and he tried to paddle this over short fine leg again. Off the bat's top half, and Amir runs backwards and sticks his right hand out. Sticks in his palm!. 206/6
