24.4 to SC Williams, has it been taken this time? Looks like it! Back of a length delivery on leg stump that zips through and cramps Williams for room completely. He tries to swipe it away but because he cannot extend his arms, he top-edges it. Paul comes darting in from the deep backward square leg fence, dives forward and completes the catch! Zimbabwe in some trouble now!. 112/4
47.2 to R Ngarava, Bowled him! Joseph keeps it simple. This is on a good length and quick. Clips the top of off as Ngarava takes a wild swing. 243/9
45.4 to Sikandar Raza, And Raza is gone! The plan pays off. This was another short slower one and Raza pulls it fine. Alzarri Joseph, off whose bowling Raza has been dropped so many times, comes running around and holds onto this inches off the ground. 232/7
15.3 to J Gumbie, Traps him in front! Gumbie has been camping in his crease quite a bit today and now he pays the price, as this nips back in from a good length and strikes his back pad in front of middle and leg. 63/1
44.5 to C Madande, Holes out at long on! This was a pace-off leg cutter, and Madande looks to go big. He gets under this lofted drive but it's only the height he gets. It goes high but straight into Holder's grateful hands.. 227/6
46.6 to WP Masakadza, Taken at wide long-on! Masakadza comes down the track and clips this flat and clean, but straight down Joseph's throat.. 243/8
18.1 to W Madhevere, Madhevere departs! Flighted a touch on a length outside off stump. Madhevere comes down the track and tries to go over mid on. He is, however, not quite to the pitch of the ball and has to drag it a little. In the end, he spoons it straight to mid on, who does the rest!. 73/2
40.2 to RP Burl, And now he's gone! Akeal gets his man eventually, but this was more shocking than the one that was not given in Hosein's previous over. This pitches a good couple of inches outside leg as Burl goes for the sweep and his struck on the pad. It's going on to hit the stumps, sure, but this was pitching miles outside leg!. 199/5
21.4 to CR Ervine, soft dismissal! Full delivery outside off stump and Ervine, with third man up in the circle, tries to be funky. Brings out the reverse sweep but makes an absolute hash of it, toe-ending it and the ball lobs up towards extra cover, who takes a couple of paces to his right and completes the catch!. 90/3

TOTAL44.4 Ov (RR: 5.21)233
Fall of wickets: 1-43 (Brandon King, 6.3 ov), 2-46 (Johnson Charles, 9.1 ov), 3-110 (Kyle Mayers, 20.2 ov), 4-134 (Shai Hope, 23.3 ov), 5-175 (Nicholas Pooran, 31.4 ov), 6-180 (Rovman Powell, 32.5 ov), 7-217 (Jason Holder, 40.1 ov), 8-222 (Keemo Paul, 41.4 ov), 9-224 (Roston Chase, 42.4 ov), 10-233 (Alzarri Joseph, 44.4 ov)
20.2 to KR Mayers, Grabbed by Muzarabani in the deep! It's the extra inches that do the trick! This was tossed up by Wellington, and Mayers looks to go large over long-off. But it's the tallest man in the Zimbabwean unit on the ropes, and he grabs it over head, despite having a bit of a bobble.. 110/3
40.1 to JO Holder, edged and taken! Chatara breaks this game open, yet again! Back of a length delivery outside off stump. Holder has the most innocuous of dabs at it, and does so without much conviction. Gets a healthy outside edge that is snaffled up superbly by the keeper, diving to his right!. 217/7
42.4 to RL Chase, chops it on! Harare breaks into an absolute cacophony of noise! Is that the game? Short delivery outside off stump. Chase thinks it is wide enough to cut but the ball might have just come back a shade. In the end, he does not have as much room to work with and he drags it back onto his stumps. Chase is utterly disconsolate; Zimbabwe, jubilant!. 224/9
44.4 to AS Joseph, Raza pouches it! Zimbabwe win, and just listen to that crowd go! Full and slanted into the pads. Joseph comes forward and tries to flick it away. The only problem, though, is that he hits it uppishly and towards Raza, who is never going to drop such a clutch chance! Agony for the West Indies; pure ecstasy for Zimbabwe!. 233/10
6.3 to BA King, and Zimbabwe's prayers are answered by Muzarabani! Back of a length delivery outside off stump that kicks up from the surface just a touch. King tries to ride it and fend it but only manages to guide it through to Raza, who is stationed at wide slip!. 43/1
32.5 to R Powell, Muzarabani traps Powell in front! The crowd goes wild! Length delivery that starts on off stump and decks back in sharply. Powell is caught on the crease and tries to push at it. He does not account for the inward movement, though, and the ball pins him on the pads. The umpire thinks about it and then raises his finger!. 180/6
9.1 to J Charles, soft dismissal! Dug into the track on middle and off stump and this seems to get big on Charles. He tries to pull it away anyway but because of the extra bounce, and because the ball is so close to him, he cannot extend his arms fully. Cloths it and square leg completes the easiest of catches!. 46/2
31.4 to N Pooran, And Ngarava has done it! This was full straight and strikes Pooran flush on the front pad as he looks to whip this onside. But oh dear, this was swinging quite a bit, that very well might have been missing leg stump.. 175/5
23.3 to SD Hope, Some Raza magic gets the breakthrough! This was one is just on a good length, maybe a little shorter. It pitches on off and turns towards middle. Hope goes back but is caught off guard by the unexpectedly low bounce and just misses it completely, as the ball crashes into the stumps. 134/4
41.4 to KMA Paul, It is that man Sikandar Raza again! Length delivery on middle and off stump and like Chase earlier in the over, Paul tries to be too funky. That is the worst shot to play, though, considering the situation and he, unsurprisingly, does not make contact. Gets rapped right in front of middle stump and the umpire has no hesitation in raising his finger. West Indies are reeling now!. 222/8
