Wellington Masakadza302006.6652010
Blessing Muzarabani402215.50101010
1.3 to Babar Azam, short and wide, smashes this straight to backward point! It was there to crack but plays it loosely in the air and it carries low at shin height to Burl on the ring.. 8/1
Richard Ngarava4048112.00106140
17.6 to Mohammad Nawaz, and again - this is a costly over for Zimbabwe. Short, well down leg side. 124/7
Luke Jongwe302428.0052020
12.5 to Danish Aziz, ahhh, that one even Zimbabwe won't drop! Clever change of pace, and Danish gets a top edge to short fine leg. Loops up and it's the simplest catch anyone could ever ask for. 89/4
15.3 to Haider Ali, slog, quite ungainly, and he misses it completely! It clatters into the stumps, and Haider falls cheaply once more. 98/5
Wessly Madhevere201125.5051000
6.2 to Fakhar Zaman, bowled a touch quicker and tighter on off stump, Fakhar went back to what was really a front foot ball and tries to cut, the ball skids through flat and cramps him for room, slight bottom edge chopping on. Fakhar is waiting to cross the rope hoping that Madhevere possibly overstepped? Nope. The third umpire is checking to make sure.... the ball hit the stumps?! Lots of third umpire reviews for bowled dismissals in the last few years. Can't trust these cheeky keepers it seems!. 42/2
8.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, salmon leap at short third man by Ngarava to snatch this and send Hafeez back! Short and wide on fifth stump, identical practically to Babar's wicket in that it was there to hit for a boundary but can't keep this down and it flies at head height to Ngarava's right on the ring. He flings himself to his right and clasps on, sticking the landing and not letting the ball burst out when his elbows hit the turf.. 55/3

Mohammad Hasnain402726.75152210
2.5 to W Madhevere, the missed chance only costs two runs! Madhevere tries to muscle a short ball over mid-on but is beaten for pace and spoons a top edge to mid-off. Simple catch on the ring at chest height this time around.. 21/1
2.6 to T Marumani, not exactly a shot he'll be sharing on his Instagram stories to mark his first delivery in T20I cricket. Short ball on off, almost a carbon copy shot and dismissal as Madhevere experienced. Just spoons a simple catch to Babar again, this time at mid-on for the lefty.. 21/2
Faheem Ashraf201608.0053000
Mohammad Nawaz201507.5063000
Haris Rauf402917.2593010
17.6 to RP Burl, what a delivery that is! Simply glorious. Almost no words to describe the sheer perfection of that yorker, at pace. Burl ends his innings on his knees as the ball takes out off stump. Really, Waqar Younis would have been proud of that. 122/7
Usman Qadir402937.25102100
11.2 to CR Ervine, brilliant catch, and Pakistan are right back in this! Ervine goes for a low-percentage reverse sweep. Got a top edge that had Nawaz back-peddling - he sticks out a mitt and the ball sticks in his left hand. He holds on to it as he tumbles to the ground. Big moment.. 79/4
13.2 to SC Williams, not as fortunate this time. Went for a similar kind of sweep shot, only to catch it on the top edge. It goes straight to Fakhar Zaman on this occasion, who roars in delight. 91/5
13.5 to RW Chakabva, another googly, and this one does for Chakabva - Zimbabwe are falling apart now. Came back to rap the pads, and that looked like it was heading for leg stump. 95/6
Mohammad Hafeez402115.2570000
10.6 to TS Kamunhukamwe, he's thrown it away slightly. dances down the ground but never really gets to the pitch of it. Beaten in the air, and well out of his crease, allowing Rizwan to flick off the bails or, well, take out all three stumps, as he does. Much needed wicket for Pakistan. 77/3
