BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Bhuvneshwar Kumar402626.50131030
18.1 to CJ Chibhabha, squirts through his legs and then its timber! Lovely bowling from Bhuvi as he goes for the yorker and angles it in as well. Chibhabha had moved across on off stump to try and flick the ball away, but it breaches his defences. When it doubt, go for the inswinging yorker. 132/5
18.4 to CR Ervine, finishes with another yorker. Homing in on off stump, Williams plays with a closed face and cannot get his bat down in time or in line with the ball. 139/6
Sandeep Sharma403919.7574121
3.2 to H Masakadza, beautiful bowling! Job well done from Sandeep this time. As the captains have suggested, this deck is a little truer. Offers the quickie a tad bit more zip. Masakadza was on the walk, so it would appear even quicker. Credit to the bowler for shortening his length and tucking the batsman up. Tries to dab it to third man. Only feathers it through to the keeper. 28/1
Stuart Binny201417.0052000
15.3 to CK Coventry, puts him out of his misery. A laboured innings of 4 off 10. This was a good length ball angled in sharply at him. Coventry looks for a flick, but is into the shot too early. First appeal is for leg before, and he looks quite plumb too. Caught in the crease, playing around his pads. 113/4
Mohit Sharma402827.00104000
5.4 to Sikandar Raza, lucky, very lucky. Inviting width, pitched short enough for the batsman to get under as well. Raza puts everything into a slash. But to his chagrin, he gets more off the outside half and it flies down to deep third man. 48/2
19.3 to P Utseya, goes for a pull, but the short ball got a bit too big on him. Not enough room to free the arms either and gets a top edge. Simpe catch for midwicket running in from the deep. 142/7
Murali Vijay20904.5040000
Axar Patel402315.7592000
11.1 to SC Williams, that is poor from Williams. Gets down the track and pops a dolly back to the bowler. Credit to Axar, as he pulled his length back and refused to give the batsman the scoring options he was looking to create. Once that happened, Williams should had adjusted. He didnt. Still went hard at it, and pays the price. 85/3

Prosper Utseya301806.0092010
Taurai Muzarabani302317.6663000
18.4 to AR Patel, full toss caught at deep midwicket! Great work by Williams running to his left and catching it over his head. The force is with them. This Harare crowd has taken care of that. The players are piling on top of each other in the huddle. Straight forward change to clear the boundary, but Axar doesnt make the requisite connection. 124/8
Chris Mpofu302618.6684000
17.4 to SV Samson, picks out long-on! Harare roars. They are on the cusp here. Mpofu looks skyward and pumps his fists. Bowls length, sees Samson go for the big hit but he hasnt timed it well enough to beat the fielder. 117/7
Chamu Chibhabha10909.0032000
Sean Williams403117.7583100
7.3 to RV Uthappa, thats a third wicket in two overs! Uthappa gives it away much like Williams himself had done with the bat. Pops a return catch, a slightly tougher one because this was quite well timed and Williams had to stretch his hands over his head and take it almost as it passed him on his right. Uthappas very good on the drive, but this time he forgets that doing that in the air straight at the bowler might become problematic. 61/4
Graeme Cremer401834.5080000
6.1 to M Vijay, now thats what I call an intro. Simple, flat legspinner on off stump zips under Vijays bat and topples the off stump. Went for the ball seeing the flatter trajectory, which helps beat him for pace. Really not short enough for that shot. 57/2
6.4 to MK Pandey, does him in with the googly! Cremer as it pitches on middle and leg and skids on to beat Pandeys harried flick and strike him low enough on the pads. But the problem was this ball would be heading down leg. Impact itself was very marginal. Umpire Tiffin pulls he trigger a bit too early. 57/3
15.1 to STR Binny, what a catch! Runs in from the long-off boundary, dives forward after the ball, gets his hands low enough and then claims a great, low catch. Binny had charges at the leggie, but gets too close to the pitch and has to shovel it up in the air. That means he doesnt time it as well. Harare is abuzz. They sense something special here and fittingly Cremer, having taken two wickets in an over before, and Chibhabha, who hit a fifty, combine for this key wicket. 105/6
