Elton Chigumbura403147.75123110
2.3 to DL Maddy, goes to hit it over cover, but mis-times and doesn't get the distance nor height - Matsikenyeri does, though, leaping high to take it well. 20/1
2.4 to LJ Wright, gone first ball! Edged a huge nick through to the keeper, looking to launch a huge cover-drive out of the ground. 20/2
18.2 to OA Shah, in the air again, but miscued this time - the ball swirls down to third man, and that's an excellent tumbling catch. Zimbabwe keeping themselves in touch with some cracking work in the field. 178/7
18.3 to AD Mascarenhas, walloped, but straight to the man at deep extra cover! That was right out of the middle of the bat - flat and tracer-like. He couldn't have hit it any better, but he's gone first ball .... 178/8
Gary Brent3034011.3344100
Tawanda Mupariwa2022111.0041200
5.3 to MJ Prior, looked to go over the top but holed out at cow corner for a well-watched catch, eight yards in from the boundary. 51/3
Prosper Utseya402716.7541000
14.3 to KP Pietersen, another massive swipe but this time Pietersen doesn't get enough bat on it ... the ball spirals high into the outfield at deep extra cover, but is comfortably snaffled. Credit to Zimbabwe, they've been outstanding in the field in both matches, and that's a vital breakthrough. 151/4
Tatenda Taibu2020010.0011100
Keith Dabengwa2029014.5043210
Chamu Chibhabha302418.0060210
17.6 to A Flintoff, He's out this time! A legcutter slower ball, Flintoff has another heave, and is comprehensively bowled. A look of bemusement as he leaves the crease. 172/6

Fall of wickets: 1-74 (Vusi Sibanda, 8.4 ov), 2-81 (Tatenda Taibu, 10.2 ov), 3-84 (Brendan Taylor, 12.1 ov), 4-87 (Stuart Matsikenyeri, 13.2 ov), 5-89 (Chamu Chibhabha, 13.4 ov), 6-104 (Elton Chigumbura, 15.4 ov), 7-137 (Hamilton Masakadza, 19.4 ov)
Stuart Broad402917.25115000
19.4 to H Masakadza, in the slot for a swing, but Masakadza can't get enough bat on it. It disappears high, high into the stratosphere, and lands safely in the hands of Luke Wright at deep midwicket. A useful innings comes to an end, as Dabengwa comes to the crease. 137/7
James Anderson3031010.3343100
Andrew Flintoff301806.0082000
Dimitri Mascarenhas401834.50120100
8.4 to V Sibanda, outside off and goes straight in the air, Sibanda looking to go for the pull shot one too many times and the top edge is taken easily enough at cover. 74/1
10.2 to T Taibu, that's the breakthrough, and a very timely one from England's point of view. Mascarenhas dropped it on a length as ever, Taibu went for a big swing across the line, and under-edged onto his stumps. 81/2
12.1 to BRM Taylor, cracking control from Mascarenhas, and that could be game, set and match for England. A perfect legcutter, Taylor - frustrated by the slowing of the run-rate - swings across the line, and his stumps are shattered. 84/3
Chris Schofield401523.75100000
13.2 to S Matsikenyeri, a fraction of width and Matsikenyeri goes down on one knee to thump that over the covers. But lurking on the boundary's edge is Andrew Flintoff, and he doesn't drop those. A fourth wicket falls, and Zimbabwe's challenge is ebbing away. 87/4
13.4 to CJ Chibhabha, another one bites the dust, and that's Schofield's second wicket in four balls. A hint of turn out of the rough, Chibhabha aimed to play across the line, and looped a leading edge straight back to the bowler. 89/5
Paul Collingwood2023111.5021110
15.4 to E Chigumbura, too short, but effective nonetheless. Chigumbura went for the maximum, but could only pick out Luke Wright, who was lurking ten yards in from the midwicket boundary. A flurry of wickets, and England are set for a comfortable victory now. With a wounded Australia to come tomorrow, that's just as well .... 104/6
