Mohammed Shami924835.33372430
4.3 to CJ Chibhabha, back of a length outside of off and another one bites the dust for Zimbabwe as now both openers are back in the shed after Chamu played half-heartedly at this delivery from Shami, providing a thick edge to Dhawan at slip, who took it just to the right of his position. 13/2
45.6 to Sikandar Raza, goes round the wicket and delivers the y-word which seemed to have been missing all this time. This one finds its mark right at the base of middle. Ends a lovely little cameo from Raza as Zimbabwe look to pile on the runs. 276/7
47.3 to T Panyangara, Shami delivers again towards the death for India as Tinashe tries in vain to bludgeon this fuller one high over the cow corner boundary, but ends up holing to deep midwicket. 285/8
Umesh Yadav9.514334.37372120
3.3 to H Masakadza, fuller length outside of off which catches the outside edge of this flash from Mt Masakadza, with the ball carrying low to the keeper. 11/1
48.1 to RW Chakabva, Yadav able to remove the dangerous Regis as he delivers a 142 kph bouncer which the batsman fails to latch onto as he looked to go over fine leg, but ends up holding out to Rohit in the deep at backward square. India just one away now from making it a perfect 60 out of 60 wickets for the tournament. 286/9
48.5 to TL Chatara, and India do make it a perfect 60 for 60 as Yadav rattles the stumps with this full, straight delivery that Chatara plays all around of. 287/10
Mohit Sharma1014834.80334110
10.6 to SF Mire, length delivery outside of off which just nibbles away as Mire feathers the slightest of edges to Dhoni. MS knew right away, but Mohit had to be coerced at the last minute, but Mire ends up pulling a Gilchrist and walking before the final decision was taken. 33/3
41.5 to BRM Taylor, and the Taylor special has to come to a close as he looked to force away this back of a length over the mid-on region, but ends up losing a glove off the handle as he went for the loft, with this one spooning comfortably to the fielder. Congratulations from the Indian players as he makes his way off the ground. One of the all-time great performances by a batsman playing his last international innings. Has he done enough to give Zimbabwe a threatening total in Auckland though?. 235/5
43.1 to CR Ervine, excellent slower delivery from Mohit that makes Ervine looks slightly amateur as he dances down before getting a top-edge to this disguised ball from the bowler, with the ball flying high over to Mohit, who barely had to move from his position when it went up initially. Ends a solid contribution from the left-hander, but Zimbabwe will need plenty more as we get into the latter stages. 241/6
Ravichandran Ashwin1007517.50287410
28.3 to SC Williams, Ashwin able to reach low to take this attempted bludgeon past him from Williams. The batsman is not sure if this has carried though, with the umpires making sure by pulling up the replay. They do confirm the ball did carry enough, as India pick up a big wicket here as Williams has to go soon after reaching his fifty. 126/4

Tinashe Panyangara8.415326.11305220
6.1 to RG Sharma, Zimbabwe into business now as they remove the ever-dangerous Rohit from the middle as he looked to heave away this length delivery through the on side, before getting a leading edge high over to the cover region, with Raza back-peddling a bit before claiming this as he fell onto his back. Didn't quite look the part, but perhaps was looking to up the rate a touch. 21/1
6.5 to S Dhawan, Tinashe on fire here at Auckland as Dhawan now has to depart from the middle after attempting an ill-advised cut to this short of a length which was bowled across him. Just wasn't enough room for him to get away the stroke as this crashed back onto the stumps. 21/2

Sikandar Raza803714.62202010
22.4 to V Kohli, and out of nowhere Raza has produced a huge wicket as he gets Kohli bowled around his legs, as the batsmen looked for the sweep round the corner. Kohli looked absolutely befuddled once the gravity of the situation came to light. Has to go for another 30-odd score this World Cup. India in real disarray now. 92/4
