6.6 to CJ Chibhabha, bowled im. The legcutter gets Chibhabha. Lands it fuller than a good length on middle, pace well off the ball. No cut on the legcutter, the ball goes skids on through but Chibhabha gets a thick inside edge on his attempted swat over midwicket, clatters into leg and middle stump. A length too full to play the pull?. 50/2
Jasprit Bumrah412426.00131200
4.3 to H Masakadza, gone. Masakadza goes. A big wicket for India. Slower delivery outside off, the offcutter. Masakadza, with short fine leg in place, premeditated the scoop. Gets down low, in a good position to execute but doesn't get the pace. A thick leading edge lobs up for Dhoni to take, running to his left. Easy catch. 33/1
17.1 to AG Cremer, gone. Chipped to mid-off and another one goes. Back of a length on off, Cremer stands in his crease and lofts the ball but with no timing. Straight to mid-off.. 130/6
Axar Patel401814.50101000
15.1 to CT Mutombodzi, gone. Mutombodzi's struggles continue, and his misery ends. Runs to the pitch of the flighted delivery but doesn't quite get there. As a result, the ball is allowed to spin and skew off the outside half of the bat. No timing, no power, straight to long-off. 111/5
Yuzvendra Chahal403819.5081301
12.4 to MN Waller, the googly and Zimbabwe lose another. Excellently delivered, just outside off, Waller thinks he has width so he tires to open the face and guide a ball towards point but that opened up a gap between pad and bat. The variation creeps through the gap and rattles into off stump. 97/3

Donald Tiripano403518.75113130
0.1 to KL Rahul, bowled im first ball. A golden duck for Rahul in his debut. Good length delivery outside off, a hint of away movement. Rahul looks to dab the ball to third man and plays it late. But the ball hits the inside edge and then finds the off stump. What a start for Zimbabwe.. 0/1
Neville Madziva403418.5094040
19.2 to AR Patel, gone. Straight to long-off. just to add to the tension and drama. Overpitched outside off, quite a terrible delivery, but Axar just cannot get under that enough. Smashes it straight to long-off. Enough power but not enough elevation. 164/6
Taurai Muzarabani403127.7583100
12.2 to KM Jadhav, bowled im. A naughty slog across the line and Jadhav chops on. Full and wide outside off, Jadhav walks across and looks to mow over midwicket but gets a thick inside edge which removes off stump. 90/4
17.2 to MK Pandey, gone. Muzarabani salutes. He has Pandey. Full on off, right in the slot for Pandey's big hit but the number of twos have probably fatigued Pandey who plays a tired shot. Gets to the ball late, in his attempted slog, and the ball squirts off the outside half, skied up for deep cover to come in and take. 143/5
Chamu Chibhabha201326.5062000
5.5 to AT Rayudu, gone. A wild swing from Rayudu and he is out. Full on off, just keeping it there. Rayudu shimmies down and has a heave at it, across the line. The ball goes under the cross bat and uproots off stump. Vital wicket for Zimbabwe after a few loose overs. 44/2
7.4 to Mandeep Singh, taken. Zimbabwe have another. Full delivery on middle, Mandeep backs away and hits the ball beautifully with a straight bat. But he wanted to go more over cover but hits it to long-off, who runs in and takes a quality grab, diving low in front of him. Had to cover significant ground to get to the opportunity. 53/3
