Heath Streak1006326.30264151
44.1 to Azhar Mahmood, and gone, Zimbabwe with a tremendous comeback, brilliant outswinger, clipping the outside edge, to the keeper, Azhar lunging down the wicket trying to drive thru the mid off. 231/7
44.2 to Abdul Razzaq, bowled! fantastic! yorked him and into the off stump, Streak on a hat trick. 231/8
Pommie Mbangwa802803.50322030
Guy Whittall813914.87323130
18.5 to Wajahatullah Wasti, coming down the pitch, trying the lofted drive on the off drive, is unfortunate to get the outside edge, ball flies high over cover point, Huckle runs in from deep cover to take an excellent running and diving catch. 95/1
Henry Olonga503827.60153051
37.6 to Saeed Anwar, short of a length, quick, Saeed pulling, but getting a top edge, loops high in the air for an easy catch to Flower, not even he could drop that one. 194/4
48.3 to Shahid Afridi, down the wicket, mistimed, didn't get onto it, easy catch for the mid off. 260/9
Adam Huckle1004314.30354010
38.4 to Wasim Akram, pitched up, Wasim with a hopeless swipe across the line, ball was pitched well up, turning into the pads, umpire gives it, Zim aren't out of the game yet, India aren't out of tourney yet. 195/5
Grant Flower201306.5051020
Paul Strang703815.42160110
35.6 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, Inzamam coming down the wicket with a totally inappropriate cut or pull, hard to tell really, misses, Flower muffs the stumping at the 1st attempt, but Inzamam was too lazy to go back to his crease, Flower had time to uproot a stump. 183/3

Wasim Akram612303.83263001
Shoaib Akhtar712223.14321013
5.5 to GW Flower, no doubt about that one, great delivery, a treat to watch, slight outswing on the yorker, thru the gate, into the middle and leg stump. 12/1
33.2 to PA Strang, thick edge flies wide of the slips, no! Azhar sticks out his right hand and the ball sticks, what a great catch. 110/7
Abdul Razzaq912532.77382010
9.3 to MW Goodwin, pulling it straight down the throat of the mid wicket, good shot, shame about the fielder in the way. 28/2
13.4 to A Flower, Flower jumping to play that ball, it had extra bounce with no anchovies, inside edge rolls away and just flicks the leg stump. 46/3
15.2 to ADR Campbell, another great captain's innings from Campbell, top edge goes down the nanny goat of Akram at mid on, he was pulling and obviously pulling badly. 50/4
Saqlain Mushtaq6.311632.46270000
40.1 to HK Olonga, big swing and miss, Moin takes off the bails, it's Def Con 2. 123/8
40.2 to AG Huckle, big swing and miss, Moin takes off the bails, it's Def Con 1. 123/9
40.3 to M Mbangwa, and he's got it! Mbangwa looks lucky to know which end of the bat to hold, ball was heading to the leg stump, batsman trying to play it on the on side. 123/10
Shahid Afridi402005.00131010
Azhar Mahmood811421.75371000
26.1 to GJ Whittall, quick and outside the off stump, Whittall trying to drive thru the covers, EDGED! and to the 1st slip. 83/5
28.2 to NC Johnson, around the wicket, seaming in, into the pads, big appeal, Bucknor raises his finger to dismiss Johnson, Zimbabwe and India. 95/6
