Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Ahmed Shehzad, 3.4 ov), 2-25 (Mukhtar Ahmed, 3.6 ov), 3-29 (Sohaib Maqsood, 5.3 ov), 4-71 (Umar Akmal, 11.2 ov), 5-87 (Shoaib Malik, 14.2 ov), 6-133 (Imad Wasim, 18.6 ov), 7-136 (Shahid Afridi, 19.5 ov), 8-136 (Wahab Riaz, 19.6 ov)
3.4 to Ahmed Shehzad, this time he gets the wicket. The tight lines have worked and Shehzad has to go. He gives himself room to try to find a gap through the off side but Chibhabha fires a quick ball on off stump and very full. He misses the exuberant drive and Zimbabwe strike. Shehzad tried to go over the infield with the inside-out shot but didnt work.. 21/1
3.6 to Mukhtar Ahmed, another wicket. Mukhtar goes this time. Quite a poor shot that with the long-on fielder in place. Full on middle and leg, and Mukhtar tries to hit the ball down the ground but the ball stops on him a touch and takes the inside half of the bat. He can only skew the ball straight into long-on's hands. Masakadza takes a relatively simple catch and Zimbabwe are right in it now.. 25/2
5.3 to Sohaib Maqsood, the pressure tells. An exceptionally poor shot. Just a straight ball, no movement. Maqsood looks to swipe the ball across the line into the leg side but misses completely. Rattles the off and middle stump and Pakistan suddenly require a consolidation period. 29/3
19.5 to Shahid Afridi, gone this time, an excellent effort from Chibabha. An unbelievable effort. Short on middle and leg, Afridi flat-bats the pull uppishly towards deep midwicket. Afridi waits to see what the umpires have to say. Chibahbha dives full-length and takes a really good low catch. but was it grassed? No, says the umpire. and Afridi has to go. Excellent catch.. 136/7
18.6 to Imad Wasim, gets the wicket this time, slower delivery yet again outside off, Wasim looks to carve the ball over the infield in the off side but can only chip the ball into short third man's hands off the outer half of the bat. 133/6
11.2 to Umar Akmal, and a few dot balls result in yet another wicket. Not a bad shot to attempt however. Flighted on off, and Akmal dances down the track but can only squirt the ball off the inside half straight to Masakadza at long-on. Very similar to the Mukhtar dismissal. Akmal got too close to the ball on that occasion, not allowing himself the room to get under the ball. 71/4
14.2 to Shoaib Malik, skidded on with the arm and took out leg stump, Malik goes after a fine innings. Just did not expect that to move on with the angle. He made room and tried to cut the ball through the leg side but sneaked through his defense and clattered into the stumps. Massive wicket. 87/5

Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Chamu Chibhabha, 0.6 ov), 2-27 (Craig Ervine, 5.1 ov), 3-49 (Sikandar Raza, 7.5 ov), 4-60 (Hamilton Masakadza, 9.4 ov), 5-66 (Sean Williams, 11.1 ov), 6-77 (Richmond Mutumbami, 13.1 ov), 7-90 (Luke Jongwe, 15.4 ov), 8-90 (Graeme Cremer, 15.5 ov), 9-121 (Elton Chigumbura, 19.1 ov)
0.6 to CJ Chibhabha, and the dot balls result in another wicket. Another drifter, coming in with the arm. Chibhabha struggles to pick it, the ball sneaks through his defense and clatters into the middle stump. 1/1
7.5 to Sikandar Raza, gone! Raza goes, in bizarre circumstances. Full and straight, Raza comes down the track and tries to work the ball into the leg side but doesn't learn from previous deliveries. this ball skids onto him and hits him on the pads and then rolls towards the keeper who takes the bails off. The umpire gives him out lbw though. Could have been out either way, anyway.. 49/3
9.4 to H Masakadza, oh, what a poor shot that was. Masakadza had to be the man to take the innings deep but he holes out, looking for the boundary. Full on middle and the shot was there but with the ball spinning, he had to execute perfectly. Unfortunately for him, he can only loft the ball to long-on's hands. Big wicket.. 60/4
11.1 to SC Williams, given by the umpire. Wasim strikes again but Williams is not happy at all. Full on off stump, Williams tries to reverse sweep but the ball kisses the pads before going towards the keeper. But was there some bat or glove before that? Doesn't matter as there are no reviews and Williams trudges off, muttering under his breath. Huge, huge wicket for Pakistan to get.. 66/5
5.1 to CR Ervine, given this time, the in-drift with the angle accounts for Ervine. Quick and full and straight, Ervine comes down the track and looks to flick through the leg side but Tanvir's angle gets the ball swinging late and Ervine plays all around the ball. Ends up striking him in front of middle, looked out although he was down the track.. 27/2
15.5 to AG Cremer, another wicket. Cremer drives the ball straight to cover. Easy catch for Afridi. Angled across Cremer who hit the drive nicely but the fault was that he hadn't kept the ball down. Very hard for Zimbabwe now.. 90/8
