BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Vinay Kumar915716.33283310
46.2 to CT Mutombodzi, caught at point! A short of a length ball with lots of width outside off. It's there to be cut and Mutombodzi goes hard at the ball. But he doesn't place it and hits it straight to Dhawan at point. A couple of feet on either side and that would have been four. 205/7
Mohammed Shami1014514.50377000
40.1 to MN Waller, bowled him! Waller's played inside the line of a good length ball that held its line on off. He was trying to drive on the up and heard the ball clatter into off stump. 166/5
Jaydev Unadkat1013913.90383020
38.4 to BRM Taylor, Unadkat's picked up his first ODI wicket with a rather ordinary ball. It was short and didn't get high up at all. Taylor had plenty of time to pull it but it looked like he was caught in two minds. He didn't try and smash it for six, and he didn't try and roll his wrists and keep the ball along the ground either. He ended up giving Raina at deep square leg a very simple catch. A soft dismissal.. 162/4
Ravindra Jadeja1033303.30414000
Amit Mishra1014334.30363110
21.5 to V Sibanda, full and pitched just outside off stump, except this one turns in. Looks like its the googly from Mishra as Sibanda plays outside the line and the umpire raises the finger straight away. Solid knock from Raza who put in the hard yards.. 72/1
33.4 to H Masakadza, that looked like it was coming. Masakadza cleared his front foot and slogged, trying to hit down the ground. It was the googly from Mishra and it hit middle stump. 119/3
43.1 to Sikandar Raza, Raza had just lost his composure in the last 20 minutes and he's now been bowled by a short googly. He had moved forward a bit too early and so wasn't balanced as he tried to go back and pull across the line. The ball passed under his shot and hit middle stump. 176/6
Suresh Raina10212.0040000
30.6 to SC Williams, Played all around this! Raina pitches this in a little closer to the batsman, but this one is not turning and Williams, who is playing for the turn, ends up playing outside the line as the ball scurries through the gap between pad and bat. Second wicket down for Zimbabwe.. 105/2

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Kyle Jarvis804015.00296001
6.3 to S Dhawan, He's gone. The short ball does the trick. A little more pace from Jarvis as he got the ball to climb on the batsman. Dhawan's pull sounded good, but it went straight down the throat of deep fine leg. 26/1
Tendai Chatara903003.33332010
Elton Chigumbura503016.00133020
12.6 to RG Sharma, He's gone. That's one waft too many. This one straightens from Chigumbura and Rohit tries an another expansive drive but only manages a faint edge which is safely pouched behind the wicket. 57/2
Prosper Utseya1003423.40332000
41.3 to V Kohli, He's holed out in the deep! It was tossed up and Kohli came down the wicket again and struck it quite well. But Vusi Sibanda at long on takes a safe catch. 216/3
41.5 to SK Raina, He's thrown it away. Caught at extra cover. Another flighted ball. Raina comes down the track, making a little room for himself, but he doesn't get enough elevation. A soft dismissal. 216/4
