Elton Chigumbura302036.6682000
0.4 to ML Hayden, would you believe it! Outside off, nipping away off the seam in the damp conditions, and Hayden's massive swipe finds only the thinnest of edges! Jubilation for the Zimbabweans, and the first wicket is down. 7/1
2.2 to AC Gilchrist, short and Gilchrist goes for the pull ... but miscues it horribly! The ball spirals into the dank Newlands heavens and midwicket pouches a comfortable catch! Australia, in their first competitive match since the World Cup final, are in something resembling disarray .... 12/2
19.6 to NW Bracken, chipped out to the man at deep cover and the innings ends with a catch - and so a dot. 138/9
Gary Brent401924.75152020
3.6 to RT Ponting, well well well well ... Ponting uses his feet again, and this time he perishes! A wild swing finds only an outside edge, and after an eternity third man steadies himself to claim a massive wicket! Australia, officially, are in strife.. 19/3
18.1 to B Lee, crashes a huge inside edge back onto the sticks, sending the off stump - and Lee - on their way. 119/7
Tawanda Mupariwa302307.6681130
Chamu Chibhabha301705.6692010
Prosper Utseya402817.0082000
16.2 to BJ Haddin, pulls that from outside off, up in the air swirling away to the right of Chigumbura who runs round - and he has to be quick - to meet the ball out towards long-on. 102/6
Tatenda Taibu2021010.5032100
Hamilton Masakadza10919.0020100
13.4 to A Symonds, sharp work from Brendan Taylor as Symonds slipped moving forward while looking to cut. Forget the replays, Symonds looked immediately worried - and so he should have done. 86/5

Brett Lee403117.7573020
18.3 to H Masakadza, dangerous shot - sounded like an edge but there wasn't - Masakadza trying the sweep and paying for it. You don't get plumber and that wasn't a tough decision. 123/5
Nathan Bracken3.502516.52103000
3.5 to V Sibanda, in the slot for a swing, but Sibanda's gone this time! A bit of lift and away-movement, and Gilchrist behind the stumps takes a comfortable catch. Still, Sibanda has done his bit. He's given his team the start they needed .... 31/1
Stuart Clark402225.50102000
6.6 to CJ Chibhabha, that's a massive steepler - it's gone straight up in the air and almost tops out above the Newlands lights. Any man on the field could have claimed it, but Gilchrist with the gloves steps forward, and is a very relieved man to end that mini-onslaught. 54/2
10.5 to S Matsikenyeri, goes to hook, a huge top-edge goes high and back down into Gilchrist's hands - the keeper didn't have to do too much there, just hold on. 70/4
Mitchell Johnson402616.50134010
7.6 to T Taibu, no width at all this time. That was a perfect lifter on middle stump and seaming away to boot. Taibu feathers a limp defensive stroke to the keeper, and Australia are starting to assert themselves at last.. 55/3
