TOTAL40.5 Ov (RR: 2.81, 213 Mins)115
Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Tanunurwa Makoni, 9.1 ov), 2-48 (Chamu Chibhabha, 15.4 ov), 3-49 (Innocent Kaia, 17.1 ov), 4-64 (Milton Shumba, 20.1 ov), 5-68 (Tafadzwa Tsiga, 22.6 ov), 6-75 (Craig Ervine, 26.4 ov), 7-81 (Wellington Masakadza, 28.3 ov), 8-87 (Brandon Mavuta, 32.5 ov), 9-89 (Victor Nyauchi, 34.4 ov), 10-115 (Tanaka Chivanga, 40.5 ov)
9.1 to T Makoni, brilliant catch by Da Silva tumbling in front of first slip! He dived with his right glove dangling out, and plucked that well to send Makoni back for a 24-ball duck. And Joseph strikes first ball from the other end. He pitched it on the slightly shorter side of a length, angling it into the batter. It pitched around middle and off, and then shaped away, taking Makoni's outside edge, as he defended forward. 16/1
15.4 to CJ Chibhabha, Leading edge, straight to backward point! That was full and straight and Chibhabha was a tad bit early as he looked to flick it through the leg side. Gets a leading edge that pops up in the air and Tagenarine Chanderpaul makes no mistake!. 48/2
17.1 to I Kaia, Edged and taken! On a length outside off angling into him and he drives away from the body. Thick outside edge takes it to first slip and Kyle Mayers is a safe pair of hands there. He was falling to his right and managed to hold the ball up to his chest as he rolled over.. 49/3
20.1 to M Shumba, Bat-pad and gone! Motie has his first wicket of the match. Full around off, he came forward to defend but the inside edge onto his pad saw the ball loop up and it's a simple catch for Raymon Reifer at forward short leg. 64/4
22.6 to TE Tsiga, Oh, what have you done Tsiga?! Has a swing at a full delivery outside off and only manages to sky it to Chanderpaul at cover. The ball turned a little to beat him, but that was just poor batting. West Indies get another wicket before lunch. 68/5
26.4 to CR Ervine, struck on the front pad, there is a confident appeal for leg before, and given out! Ervine walks back shaking his head, with the umpire barely having taken a second to give that out. Full delivery pitching outside off, and Ervine has pre-decided to slog sweep that away across the line. The ball does turn in to end around middle and off, but he is beaten, and rapped right in front. Zimbabwe almost in danger of getting bowled out under a hundred. 75/6
28.3 to WP Masakadza, tickled to leg slip! Motie has his fourth. This good length ball outside off bounced well enough for Motie's liking, while also turning into middle and leg. Masakadza looked to guide that with the turn, but ended up gifting a catch off the inside edge to the fielder behind. This is motoring along for West Indies now. 81/7
32.5 to B Mavuta, five wickets for Motie! Edged to slip this time. Actually the outside edge first hit the right side of Da Silva's gloves, only for it to pop out towards slip, where Blackwood went low to complete the grab on second attempt. Mavuta was standing after making room, and looked to loft this loopy and full ball on off. The ball was much slower too, and his bat swing was too early. 87/8
34.4 to VM Nyauchi, bowled him! No. 6 for Motie. It was a yorker which cleaned Nyauchi up. Motie tossed it up from around the wicket, angling it into the right-hander. The ball landed on a yorker length on leg, and skidded through to strike the leg stump, with Nyauchi trying to squeeze it out but getting beaten. 89/9
40.5 to TL Chivanga, Cleans him up and Gudakesh Motie has seven! Flatter and quicker on middle, Chivanga rocked back to cut but missed and the ball hit the top of the stumps. Zimbabwe are bowled out for 115 and Motie finishes with career-best figures of 7-37!. 115/10

Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 7.5 ov), 2-86 (Tagenarine Chanderpaul, 27.1 ov), 3-117 (Raymon Reifer, 35.3 ov), 4-124 (Jermaine Blackwood, 37.3 ov), 5-184 (Kyle Mayers, 53.1 ov), 6-269 (Roston Chase, 84.5 ov), 7-270 (Joshua Da Silva, 86.1 ov), 8-274 (Alzarri Joseph, 86.3 ov), 9-290 (Jason Holder, 90.5 ov), 10-292 (Gudakesh Motie, 92.3 ov)
84.5 to RL Chase, bowled him, the breakthrough finally arrives! It was a very good ball there. Bowled on the slightly fuller side of a length around off, and shaped back in to hit middle, as the ball found the little gap between bat and pad, with Chase trying to drive forward. But Chase's resistance ends after a patient stay of 70.. 269/6
86.1 to J Da Silva, bowled him! Nyauchi has now cleaned up both Chase and Da Silva. The second new ball thus helping Zimbabwe hit back. He pitched it on the shorter side of a length, and a bit wide of off. But the ball angled in sharply to strike off stump, as Da Silva pushed forward on middle stump instead. 270/7
86.3 to AS Joseph, ballooned to midwicket, as Makuni rushes across to his right to gobble that! Two wickets in three balls for Nyauchi. He banged it in short and at high pace, as the ball rose rather uncomfortably around middle and off. Joseph looked to pull, but got that from the higher side of the bat. Makoni kept his eyes on the ball all along, and stretched out his hands to complete the take. 274/8
90.5 to JO Holder, Nyauchi strikes with the first ball of the day! Or has he overstepped? No, his had landed his foot just behind the crease. Bowls it on a length outside off, Holder went chasing after it with an expansive drive and gets a thick edge and Tsiga gobbles it up. 290/9
92.3 to G Motie, Nyauchi has his fifth! Banged in short outside leg, Motie pulled it but picks out the deep midwicket fielder, who takes a good low catch. A first Test five-wicket haul for Nyauchi, who has toiled away. West Indies are bowled out for 292. 292/10
7.5 to KC Brathwaite, Pins him in front and up goes the finger! That was slightly full on off and stayed low as it went on with the angle. Brathwaite played back to it and couldn't get his bat down in time. That looked fairly plumb. Masakadza has now got Brathwaite thrice in the series!. 13/1
27.1 to T Chanderpaul, Mavuta draws the top-edge and gets rid of Chanderpaul! Tosses it up on a length outside off, Chanderpaul moves across and looks to sweep. Gets a huge top edge and the ball loops up to short fine for a simple catch for Donald Tiripano. A budding partnership broken. 86/2
37.3 to J Blackwood, Pulls it and and it's straight to the fielder! That's a half-tracker outside off and he rocks back and pulls it, but straight to short midwicket, where Nyauchi takes the catch. Mavuta has his second and West Indies are four down. 124/4
53.1 to KR Mayers, chipped to midwicket! But Mayers is hanging around, perhaps maybe he thinks the ball must have stopped short of fielder. Replays, though, confirm it was taken well, and just off the ground by Masakadza, so Mayers has to depart. It was a full toss which was angling into and dipping towards middle stump, with Mayers simply flicking it perhaps citing the friendly ball. But, but... there is still a delay in the third umpire officially ruling it out, as the two on-field umpires wait for the decision. The verdict comes after the third umpire checks multiple replays of the low catch, and finally gives it out. 184/5

Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Tanunurwa Makoni, 2.5 ov), 2-15 (Chamu Chibhabha, 6.1 ov), 3-56 (Innocent Kaia, 16.2 ov), 4-86 (Milton Shumba, 26.4 ov), 5-102 (Tafadzwa Tsiga, 30.6 ov), 6-103 (Donald Tiripano, 31.3 ov), 7-132 (Wellington Masakadza, 36.6 ov), 8-166 (Brandon Mavuta, 46.1 ov), 9-170 (Craig Ervine, 47.1 ov), 10-173 (Victor Nyauchi, 47.3 ov)
2.5 to T Makoni, He chases a wide delivery and nicks off! On a length outside off, Makoni looks for a drive and gets the outside edge. Easy catch for Da Silva. 13/1
31.3 to DT Tiripano, the off stump is dislodged! Gabriel joins the fun, even if his front foot just landed right. He fired one on a good length just about on off, with the ball zipping into the batter again. It kept a little low too, as Tiripano was neither forward nor back in trying to push at it. And the ball sneaked in below his bat. 103/6
6.1 to CJ Chibhabha, chopped on first ball! Chibhabha's front foot was going nowhere there, as he ended up bottom-edging on to the stumps. It was on a good length around fifth stump as he went half forward to try and have a tentative poke away from his body. Instead, the ball went crashing down. 15/2
16.2 to I Kaia, Oh, Kaia falls short of a half-century again! Tossed up full outside off, he looked to fetch it with the sweep again but gets a thin edge and Da Silva is quick to react and gobble that up, even after it bounced up off him. Kaia departs for a well made 43. 56/3
26.4 to M Shumba, Motie cleans him up! Tossed up just fuller than a length outside off, Shumba was out of his crease again as he looked to whip it through the leg side. The ball turns in sharply and goes between his bat and pad and hits the stumps. Motie has nine in the match now. 86/4
30.6 to TE Tsiga, Motie has his first Test 10-for! That was tossed slow and full on middle. Tsiga went across to try and sweep it fine but can only help it onto leg-stump. Another wicket gone for Zimbabwe and a big moment for Motie!. 102/5
36.6 to WP Masakadza, tickled to short leg! Masakadza's adventure doesn't last long. After attempting reverse sweeps which didn't work, he now decided to charge down the pitch. In trying to defend this good length ball outside off, he actually ended up getting an inside edge to the fielder, as the ball turned well into him. Motie now has a chance to bag five in the second innings too. 132/7
47.1 to CR Ervine, And he strikes immediately! He has trapped Ervine in front! It's on a length outside off, he plays back but the ball stays low and hits him plumb in front. Ervine's resilience comes to an end. Motie has two five-fors!. 170/9
47.3 to VM Nyauchi, Motie finishes things off! Tossed up on a length outside off, spins away as Nyauchi comes down the track and it's a simple stumping for Da Silva. Motie finishes with 13 wickets in the match. Figures of 6-62 to go with his first-innings figures of 7-37. 173/10
46.1 to B Mavuta, Chase strikes first ball! On a length outside off, Mavuta plays forward as it bounces more than he expected and it goes to Reifer at forward short leg, who takes a sharp catch. Chase has his first of the innings. 166/8
