Fall of wickets: 1-99 (Virender Sehwag, 16.4 ov), 2-142 (Dinesh Mongia, 27.3 ov), 3-142 (Sachin Tendulkar, 27.5 ov), 4-182 (Sourav Ganguly, 37.6 ov), 5-184 (Yuvraj Singh, 38.6 ov), 6-227 (Mohammad Kaif, 46.3 ov), 7-234 (Harbhajan Singh, 47.6 ov)
47.6 to Harbhajan Singh, fine catch! Harbhajan advances to a short rising ball, gets well under it, far too well under it, skies it a mile up in the air, back over the bowler's head, Murphy has to sprint a long way from cover, taking it over his shoulder just inside. 234/7
37.6 to SC Ganguly, a big wicket for Zimbabwe, hauling India back further just as the pressure was starting to come off, looks to chip a fullish ball over the leg side but gets a big leading edge, skying it straight down to Streak at long off. 182/4
46.3 to M Kaif, but he tries to get just a little too cute, walking right across his stumps, trying the paddle/scoop to a very quick, full and straight ball, taken very low down and that's plumb, umpire de Silva raises the finger. 227/6
16.4 to V Sehwag, and just like the previous ball, this one is outside the off. Sehwag again tries the cut, but he misjudges the bounce and cuts the ball straight into Taibu's gloves behind the stumps. 99/1
27.3 to D Mongia, tossed up delivery on the middle and off stump line, Mongia comes down the track and chips it straight down the throat of Hondo at long-on, Grant Flower strikes. 142/2
27.5 to SR Tendulkar, what a wicket! flighted delivery on the middle and off stump line, the ball straightened after hitting the deck, Tendulkar doesn't pick it up and in the end plays a nothing shot, the ball clips the off stump and the crowd goes wild. 142/3
38.6 to Yuvraj Singh, and another one bites the dust! India really losing their way here, Yuvraj nibbles at one from inside the line, looking for the turn back in that was never there, ends up getting a nick straight into Taibu's gloves and he walks off. 184/5

TOTAL44.4 Ov (RR: 3.85)172
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Mark Vermeulen, 0.6 ov), 2-23 (Craig Wishart, 8.1 ov), 3-48 (Andy Flower, 16.3 ov), 4-83 (Grant Flower, 23.4 ov), 5-83 (Dion Ebrahim, 23.5 ov), 6-87 (Andy Blignaut, 25.3 ov), 7-124 (Guy Whittall, 31.6 ov), 8-160 (Heath Streak, 39.5 ov), 9-165 (Brian Murphy, 42.1 ov), 10-172 (Douglas Hondo, 44.4 ov)
0.6 to MA Vermeulen, excellent ball! back of a length, rising and using the angle back in from outside off stump, tries to force off the back foot but only gets a faint edge straight through to the keeper, the Indians are jubilant and then some!. 1/1
8.1 to CB Wishart, awful shot! the ball is a perfectly ordinary one, just outside the off stump and short of driving length, and Wishart does not move his feet at all in going for the cut, so chops the ball onto his stumps. 23/2
42.1 to BA Murphy, cleaned him up! Zaheer sends down a fast, straight delivery, and Murphy tries to work it to leg and misses completely, off stump knocked back to give Zaheer his first wicket of the innings. 165/9
44.4 to DT Hondo, and Zaheer cleans up the tail with that delivery, just short of a length and moving a shade away from the batsman, the ball too good for Hondo, clipping off stump and ending the Zimbabwe innings. 172/10
16.3 to A Flower, down the leg side, tossed up, Andy Flower goes for the sweep, the ball spins past pad and pegs back the stumps! Andy Flower not realising this sets off for a single.... 48/3
39.5 to HH Streak, Streak goes for the sweep again, but this time the ball takes the top edge, spooning high into the air, and Kaif runs around from leg gully to take a simple catch, Streak just not able to keep that ball down. 160/8
23.4 to GW Flower, who didn't see that coming? Flower, frustrated by three dot balls, tries to go over the top straight down the wicket, the bounce takes the ball higher on the bat than expected, and Harhajan takes a fine catch running full tilt from mid off. 83/4
23.5 to DD Ebrahim, short ball, and Ebrahim tries the pull over midwicket and mistimes, the ball catching a top edge and falling straight into the hands of substitute Agarkar at square leg. 83/5
25.3 to AM Blignaut, on the middle and off, and Blignaut tries to loft it high and handsome, and gets only the high part right. The ball steeples in the air and comes down safely in Dinesh Mongia's hands, the fielder running around from midwicket. 87/6
31.6 to GJ Whittall, just short of a length outside the off, and Whittall cuts hard and uppishly, the ball dying on Zaheer Khan as it reaches him at backward point, but he dives and takes a fine catch. 124/7
