TOTAL147.1 Ov (RR: 3.46, 637 Mins)510/8d
Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Imran Butt, 7.3 ov), 2-248 (Azhar Ali, 82.3 ov), 3-252 (Babar Azam, 84.3 ov), 4-264 (Fawad Alam, 86.5 ov), 5-303 (Sajid Khan, 101.6 ov), 6-340 (Mohammad Rizwan, 112.3 ov), 7-341 (Hasan Ali, 113.6 ov), 8-510 (Noman Ali, 147.1 ov)
82.3 to Azhar Ali, this was coming, they have been sharp with the new ball, Azhar drives a length ball on the up, he is only half forward, and the thick edge flies straight to gully. 248/2
84.3 to Babar Azam, Muzarabani has the big wicket, in similar fashion to Azhar's dismissal, Babar trying to drive a pitched-up delivery on the up, ends up hitting it in the air to cover-point, Muzarabani is dangling the bait and Pakistan are biting so far. 252/3
86.5 to Fawad Alam, and then he goes ahead and does this, Muzarabani is all over Pakistan now, dug in shortish, climbs sharply around off, Fawad decides to short-arm pull it into the ground, he is no position for the shot, cramped for room, only manages to chop it on, ended up playing a top-spin tennis-style forehand in the end. 264/4
7.3 to Imran Butt, bounced out! Short ball on off stump, Imran tries to pull this against the angle over midwicket but is hustled for pace and bounce. He can only manage to spoon this off a top edge into midwicket. Tiripano shuffles forward and to his right to claim a simple catch reaching forward in front of his body at waist height. Beautiful line from Ngarava produces a wicket for the hosts.. 12/1
113.6 to Hasan Ali, maiden Test wicket for Jongwe! Why'd they keep him out of the attack for so long?! Good length ball on fifth stump, not short or wide enough to be comfortable enough for a cut shot but Hasan chases after it anyway and gets a thick edge carrying through low to Chakabva.. 341/7
101.6 to Sajid Khan, what a ripper of a catch by Chakabva! Back of a length ball on fifth stump, Sajid chases after this flat-footed and the extra bounce clips the edge. Chakabva was caught wrong-footed initially and has to dive to his right very late. First slip had gone airborne as well moving left as the ball was on its way to split the gap but Chakabva with the gloves recovers in time to knife this one-handed with his right glove at chest height flying right and sticks the landing. Poor footwork made that catch more adventurous than it should have been but he made up for it with a sensational recovery.. 303/5
112.3 to Mohammad Rizwan, Rizwan falls trying to up the scoring rate. Uses his feet to charge Chisoro but almost overruns the ball and can't get elevation on the attempted lofted drive, scuffs a shot flat to Ngarava at mid-on. Simple catch at chest height.. 340/6
147.1 to Nauman Ali, appeal for stumping, this was way outside off, Nauman went across and tried reaching it but missed, his back foot was in the air as he dragged it back to regain an upright position, an alert Chakabva whipped the bails off, and the foot was yet to come back to ground when the bails were disturbed, heartbreak for Nauman after an entertaining innings. 510/8

TOTAL60.4 Ov (RR: 2.17, 258 Mins)132
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Tarisai Musakanda, 1.6 ov), 2-23 (Kevin Kasuza, 12.5 ov), 3-40 (Brendan Taylor, 17.5 ov), 4-47 (Milton Shumba, 24.5 ov), 5-53 (Tendai Chisoro, 30.4 ov), 6-68 (Regis Chakabva, 36.2 ov), 7-77 (Luke Jongwe, 38.5 ov), 8-108 (Donald Tiripano, 54.6 ov), 9-110 (Roy Kaia, 55.5 ov), 10-132 (Blessing Muzarabani, 60.4 ov)
17.5 to BRM Taylor, Shaheen has some reward, this is dug in short, comes in and climbs into Taylor from round the stumps, he stays on the crease beside the line and makes a late call to push at it even as he is swaying away, only manages a feather through to Rizwan, rather poor from the skipper. 40/3
1.6 to TK Musakanda, and here it comes, after all those ones outside off, he spears it in full and right at the pads, Musakanda tries to flick it but misses, umpire Rusere upholds the appeal, having made his first-class debut in 2002-03 and waited to play for Pakistan until 2021, Tabish strikes in his first over in Test cricket. 0/1
12.5 to KT Kasuza, Hasan back to uprooting stumps, Kasuza just a bit late in trying to defend this length ball in a tight zone around off, kind of pushes half forward, almost walking into it as it swings in a tad, inside edge clatters into leg stump, which goes for a short walk. 23/2
30.4 to TS Chisoro, gem of a delivery snapped up low at second slip by Imran Butt! Lovely angle from Hasan pitching this on leg stump and angling it across the left-hander. He doesn't get his feet moving at all this first over of the day and just pokes tentatively at it as it clips the outside edge and carries to Imran at shin height. Third slip looked like he might dive across but Imran didn't let his concentration get thrown off by the body flinch to his left and collects it cleanly.. 53/5
36.2 to RW Chakabva, hello! Ripper by Abid Ali at first slip! Back of a length on fifth stump, climbs on him with some extra bounce. Didn't need to play at this at all but pays the price for chasing after it and a thick edge flies high to Abid's right over head height. Rather than snatching forward with palms in front of his face, he swivels his hips to take this with the ball past his head and palms facing back inward toward his chest.. 68/6
38.5 to LM Jongwe, yikes! Of all the ways to get out trailing by 400+ runs, Jongwe has shouldered arms and heard the death rattle as off stump is pegged back! Good length ball by Hasan pitches on fifth stump and really just continues on with the angle bowled from wide of the crease rather than any extravagant seam movement coming back in toward Jongwe. Just a very very poorly judged leave and he pays the ultimate price.. 77/7
55.5 to R Kaia, stunner at gully by Azhar Ali completes Hasan's five-for! Searing cut shot on a short and wide ball, pure reaction catch from Azhar reaching up in front of his face. Saved himself a trip to the dentist and clinched a second consecutive five-wicket haul on behalf of Hasan in the process.. 110/9
24.5 to M Shumba, Sajid has had to wait a while for his maiden Test wicket, but here it comes now, tossed up fullish from round the stumps and this one does not turn, carries in with the angle, Shumba is padding up, hit just outside the line of off, and umpire Erasmus is convinced, seems a fair call. 47/4
54.6 to DT Tiripano, finally the poking and prodding results in a wicket at forward short leg! Prods forward to a flighted ball as Sajid drags the length back from the previous delivery. Sharp turn as the ball clips a thin inside edge and then caroms off the pad before ballooning the the sub fielder under a helmet Saud Shakeel (on as a sub for Abid Ali who took a blow in that fielding position a few overs ago) for a very simple catch.. 108/8

TOTAL68 Ov (RR: 3.39, 299 Mins)231
Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Tarisai Musakanda, 4.2 ov), 2-63 (Kevin Kasuza, 21.5 ov), 3-142 (Brendan Taylor, 36.5 ov), 4-170 (Regis Chakabva, 45.3 ov), 5-188 (Milton Shumba, 52.3 ov), 6-196 (Donald Tiripano, 54.3 ov), 7-196 (Roy Kaia, 54.4 ov), 8-205 (Tendai Chisoro, 57.5 ov), 9-205 (Richard Ngarava, 57.6 ov), 10-231 (Luke Jongwe, 67.6 ov)
4.2 to TK Musakanda, there is the first one, Shaheen is absolutely pumped up, short of a length, rushing across him on the left-hander's angle, he tamely follows it away from the body, neither forward nor back, nothing shot really, and nicks it through to Rizwan. 13/1
36.5 to BRM Taylor, they have him finally, Shaheen digs it into Taylor, short of a length and good lift into the skipper, he hops and shuffles across outside the line, and only ends up nudging it straight to Rizwan down the leg side. 142/3
57.5 to TS Chisoro, Shaheen spears in the yorker, Chisoro is leaden-footed on the crease after all those short balls, this reverses in to him from over the wicket, and has uprooted the off as well as middle stumps before he can get bat down, too good. 205/8
57.6 to R Ngarava, stumps flying all over now, what a sight, this is a full delivery angled in to the left-hander, Ngarava just has a swipe at it, misses and another set of stumps -- middle and leg this time -- is knocked out of the ground, Shaheen jumps in celebration. 205/9
67.6 to LM Jongwe, there it is! History for Pakistan! First time they've had three bowlers with a five-wicket haul in the same Test and only sixth time overall in Test cricket history. First time since 1993! Afridi bowled it in the channel on fifth stump, Jongwe didn't have to play at this but was teased into this from the around the wicket angle as it seamed away a touch and held its line off the wicket, he pokes well away from his body with no footwork and a thick edge carries low to Rizwan shuffling to his right in front of first slip.. 231/10
21.5 to KT Kasuza, goes right through him and Nauman starts clapping in celebration, one shot too many from this pair, tossed up teasingly and angled in, it doesn't turn, done in by flight and lack of turn, has a slog only to find thin air, and the ball rushes in past the inside edge to uproot middle stump. 63/2
45.3 to RW Chakabva, they have the big wicket, Chakabva's hard work is undone, this was tossed up full and widish, slowly and teasingly, Chakabva went for a big slog, the ball spun, took a thick edge and that is a sharp take from the skipper at slip, this was travelling to his left, Chakabva has been in the game through the entire Test, but it is time for the others to follow up now, Rizwan is delighted, points a glove at Nauman in 'i-told-you-so' fashion. 170/4
52.3 to M Shumba, whoa, that is as good a take as any you'll see at silly point, Shumba forward to defend a flighted delivery, inside edge on to pad, more like being pushed down off the thrusting pad, the ball was travelling and dying on Imran at silly point but he dives forward and picks it up to his left just above the ground, super reflexes, stretches his left hand out and just gets his fingers under it. 188/5
54.3 to DT Tiripano, this time he is gone, though, there's the danger of playing from the crease, Nauman tosses it up around off, it does not spin, and Tiripano swings the bat in vain, hit in front of middle and leg, possibly grazing leg, umpire Erasmus is convinced right away. 196/6
54.4 to R Kaia, two in two for Nauman, and golden duck for Kaia, and just like that Nauman has five, raises his arms and performs the sajda, slanted in very full into the pad, not exactly the length to be sweeping, tries a half-hearted sweep and gets a top edge, backward square leg takes a sitter. 196/7
