Tinashe Panyangara814015.00325110
45.5 to KJ O'Brien, what a catch! Raza is a bundle of energy down at long on. He'd had a go trying to stop the six that Wilson hit down the ground earlier in the over, and now he's pulled off a stunning catch. O'Brien chipped the ball, possibly looking to go straighter than he did, and Raza sprinted in from long-on. The ball was dying on him all the way, but he leapt forward at the very last moment to pluck it out of the air inches off the ground. That's a great effort, and he celebrates by flinging the ball high in to the clear blue sky. 230/6
Luke Jongwe804315.37315110
7.1 to WTS Porterfield, Porterfield falls to a tumbling catch at second slip! This delivery was angled right across him, and Porterfield just pushed at it from the crease. The ball took a thick edge, and Ervine held a clean catch tumbling to his left in the slips. First breakthrough for Zimbabwe, and it's the reward for some consistent bowling.. 19/1
Chamu Chibhabha311304.33121010
John Nyumbu803904.87296000
Sikandar Raza1014934.90343230
21.4 to EC Joyce, he's given him! Joyce must have been expecting more turn, but this one rushed on with the arm as Raza continued round the wicket to the left-hander. Ball missed bat, hit pad, and up went Umpire Matibiri's finger.. 85/2
27.5 to PR Stirling, Raza has another! He continued round the wicket to the right hander, and this one spun in from what looked like an off stump line to strike the pad. Umpire Matibiri upholds the appeal, and a disappointed Stirling trudges off. 126/3
41.6 to NJ O'Brien, well held by Waller at long-off! O'Brien came down the track and chipped the ball, not looking to hit it too hard. He probably hit it a little too well, and Waller rushed in from long-off to hold the simple chance. 210/5

John Mooney8.304815.64246020
46.3 to Sikandar Raza, caught in the deep! Raza stepped back and targeted the leg side this time, picking up a length delivery. He hit the ball really well, but also placed it straight into the hands of the man at deep midwicket. 256/5
Tim Murtagh804715.87286010
7.4 to R Mutumbami, gone this time! And this was a defensive stroke. Mutumbami shuffled right across and tried to work this to leg, but the ball took the leading edge and popped straight to Porterfield at point. Ireland have the breakthrough.. 47/1
Kevin O'Brien1004624.60343110
8.6 to CJ Chibhabha, gone this time! O'Brien pulled his length back, and also got this delivery to leave the batsman off the pitch. Chamu poked at it, and feathered an edge through to the keeper. O'Brien is ecstatic, he runs into the covers with his arms aeroplaning and is mobbed by his team-mates. That's his 200th wicket for Ireland, across all formats.. 51/2
36.2 to CT Mutombodzi, what a catch! This is a really special effort. Tino set himself to flick to leg but was too early into the shot. The ball looped in the air but seemed to be heading for empty space on the off side ... until Dockrell, who was at cover, charged round and timed his dive to snatch it mere inches from the turf. O'Brien certainly appreciates the effort, and celebrates the wicket with arms outstretched. 192/4
Andy McBrine603816.33133000
25.5 to SC Williams, and he's gone! Williams wasn't going to be held back by fielders in the deep, but he's given his wicket away with one aggressive stroke too many. He jumped out at the offspinner again, and wanted to go over long-on. But he didn't get all of it, and Wilson Joyce, who had been at slip, settles under the catch. Easily taken.. 149/3
