BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jerome Taylor601923.16282011
4.4 to H Masakadza, another batsman's bowled! A fine, swinging delivery that lands on a perfect length outside off stump and jags back in sharply, Masakadza is caught in his crease fishing at it and looks back to see his off stump pegged back, beaten for pace, good strike for Taylor. 10/2
8.6 to TV Mufambisi, short delivery gets him a wicket! Banged in short and fast on off stump, surprised Mufambisi totally, caught in two minds - pull or hook? - but takes his eyes off it and ends up wafting, gets a touch on that and Baugh collects the catch behind the stumps, all go up in appeal and the bearded Rudi Koertzen raises the finger, Taylor gets another wicket, well bowled, West Indian style lifter. 31/3
Ian Bradshaw812012.50392021
3.1 to CJ Chibhabha, cleaned up! Bradshaw gets the first wicket with one that lands on middle and off and comes back into Chibhabha, who plays all over it and loses this middle stump. 9/1
Dwayne Smith621422.33291001
12.6 to S Matsikenyeri, gets him with a beauty! Lands on a short of a driveable length in that excellent channel, moves away just enough to draw the edge as Matsikenyeri defends it, Baugh gleefully holds the catch and Smith strikes in his first over, Zimbabwe are halfway over. 39/5
18.6 to E Chigumbura, there you have it, madness, I tell you! Elton Chigumbura went for a stupid swipe the ball before, clearly he didn't learn a thing, tries to smoke a short-of-a-good-length delivery outside off stump into oblivion, doesnt get under it and ends up spooning a simple catch to Taylor at mid-off who only has to take a few steps back and pouch it, Zimbabwe slip even further, how much longer will this innings last?. 58/7
Dwayne Bravo702804.00284000
Chris Gayle3.11330.94170000
26.1 to AJ Ireland, Gentle off break, did nothing dramatic and that was the secret. Ireland pushed at it , expecting it would turn in sharply - why he thought so, only he would know- and ended up playing inside the line. Landed just outside off stump and hit off. As simple as it gets. I think I caught a sheepish grin pastered on Gayle.. 82/8
28.5 to EC Rainsford, sharp catch by Bravo at first slip. It was tossed up outside off, turned in a bit and bounced a little. Rainsford goes for a cut and is beaten by the extra bounce. It darted to the left of Bravo who pouches it smartly. 84/9
30.1 to P Utseya, And Utseya falls and ZImbabwe have folded up for a meagre 85. He went for a pull but missed.. 85/10

9.5 to CH Gayle, Gayle finally falls. he had tried numerous times to get out and he succeeds this time. Another pull attempted off a ball that wasn't that short and the resultant skier was held at midwicket. 66/1
