Chris Mpofu1017417.40278220
44.1 to Imran Nazir, super catch by Matsikenyeri at deepish extra cover. Nazir looked to drive the ball but it was wide and he had to reach for it. He connected, but with limited power, and Matsikenyeri, the shortest man in the side, took a few steps back, jumped and held the ball above his head as he fell. 295/7
Tawanda Mupariwa1015715.70354310
27.4 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, fine catch, a very fine catch to end a brilliant batsman's one-day career. Inzamam trying to launch another six over long-on but got an outside edge behind Williams' head at mid-off who jogged back and took it in front of his nose. Fine catch. 158/3
Elton Chigumbura6.515037.31236211
6.3 to Kamran Akmal, weak backfoot prod, no footwork, he chased it and a thin edge was caught by Taylor, although he did his best to drop it, as he has a number of other balls in the tournament to date. But he clung on, and Zimbabwe have the breakthrough. 31/1
47.5 to Umar Gul, Gul takes a big step towards leg and aims an expansive slam through the covers, Chigumbura fires in an off-stump yorker and it's too good for the tailender. 324/9
49.5 to Iftikhar Anjum, cross-batted swipe which Matsikenyeri at cow corner takes with ease. 349/10
Gary Brent1006836.80242330
30.4 to Mohammad Yousuf, half volley, hit straight back at Brent who holds a comfortable return catch without any alarms. A tame dismissal but one which Zimbabwe needed as Pakistan were beginning to press on. 170/4
43.1 to Shahid Afridi, slower ball ... so slow it needed motion detectors to track ... Afridi played all round it and was bowled round his legs. 285/6
45.5 to Mohammad Sami, mistimed flick to leg, it ends up as a nothing shot, the ball loops to Matsikenyeri at midwicket and he has to dive forward - almost in slow motion - to complete the catch. 301/8
Sean Williams604116.83163201
17.4 to Shoaib Malik, gone! Very well bowled indeed. He came charging down the pitch too early - Williams saw him coming, dropped it in short and the batsman dabbed it to Chibhabha at point. 88/2

Umar Gul511022.00250001
0.2 to V Sibanda, gone, and what a tame dismissal that was. Wide of the off stump, Sibanda threw his hands at it, got a thick outside edge to hand a simple catch to Imran Nazir, no less, who took the simplest of catches. 0/1
4.6 to CJ Chibhabha, a really dreadful stroke, charging Gul - trying to hit him over the top. A thick outside edge presents Inzamam with a straightforward chance, head-height, at first slip. 12/2
Mohammad Sami501513.00211010
5.3 to F Kasteni, well, just too fast for him. Short and quick, rising up towards his throat and, with no foot movement, an injudicious swipe hands Inzamam his second catch at slip. 14/3
Danish Kaneria4048212.0081500
12.1 to BRM Taylor, swung high to Younis Khan who ran in from the deep midwicket boundary and held the catch well. A tough one out of the gloom and with no real grip underfoot. 45/4
16.6 to SC Williams, Williams goes for another big hit, this time he doesn't get over it and Gul races in from long-on and holds on easily to a steepler. 93/7
Shahid Afridi402035.00162100
15.1 to E Chigumbura, another big swing but he misses, it's straight, and he's gone down in a blaze of hitting. 77/6
17.2 to GB Brent, straight and much slower - 62mph - and Brent swings and misses, losing his middle stump. 94/8
17.5 to T Mupariwa, and he's bowled him with the wrong un at 48mph, and he punches the air in delight. 94/9
Younis Khan10505.0030001
Mohammad Yousuf0.10010.0010000
19.1 to CB Mpofu, slow and loopy, driven to cover where Inzamam holds the catch. Huge grins all round, and Yousuf has not smiled more when he's scored hundreds. Even Simon Taufel can't help grinning. 99/10
