TOTAL82.5 Ov (RR: 2.64)219
Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 8.3 ov), 2-35 (Kyle Hope, 15.3 ov), 3-110 (Kieran Powell, 43.2 ov), 4-174 (Roston Chase, 65.2 ov), 5-179 (Jermaine Blackwood, 68.6 ov), 6-202 (Shane Dowrich, 75.4 ov), 7-212 (Jason Holder, 79.6 ov), 8-218 (Devendra Bishoo, 81.6 ov), 9-219 (Kemar Roach, 82.4 ov), 10-219 (Shannon Gabriel, 82.5 ov)
8.3 to KC Brathwaite, full outside off, and this one straightens after pitching. A peach! Brathwaite prods at the shot, trying to defend the ball off the back foot, and it takes the outside edge. Straight to Chakabva's gloves, who makes no mistakes. Jarvis strikes. 14/1
15.3 to KA Hope, drags that length back just enough to allow the ball to hold its line enough. Hope plays the line, and misses the ball. But Cremer is coaxed into reviewing. Was there a nick? Mighty close to the bat. There is a spike as the ball passes the bat on UltraEdge, and that should be plenty evidence to overturn this decision. Mire's maiden Test wicket. And what a ball to do so, pulled that length back, and what it did was leave Hope tentative - whether to come forward or go back. Eventually, he poked at the ball from the crease, which has trouble all over it. Well bowled.. 35/2
43.2 to KOA Powell, out comes the paddle sweep, has it carried? Zimbabwe want to review it. Cremer had asked short leg if it carried, he said yes, and they went on with the review? Definitely off the pad, was it off the face of the bat? Yes, there is a spike on UltraEdge and the on-field not-out decision should be overturned. Not a bit spike, but there is enough to suggest that the ball clipped the inside edge onto the pad. Two fantastic reviews from Zimbabwe. Ervine took a sharp, low catch, running to his left. "He's got a touch on this," says the third umpire. Powell has made another start, without going on.. 110/3
68.6 to J Blackwood, Stumped? The keeper is appealing. Pitched full on middle and leg, turns past his outside edge and the keeper grabs quickly, and removes the bails. He thinks it's a stumping, but the decision lies with the third umpire. Awaiting replays. Blackwood came forward to defend, but his back foot is dragged out of the crease. The aware Chakabva dislodged the bails instantly. The back foot is on the line (and not behind) when the stumps were broken. Aaaand he's given out! Blackwood's gotta go.. 179/5
82.4 to KAJ Roach, Roach uses West Indies' last review. The googly, on middle and leg, hits Roach in front of leg, the ball then bobbles back to hit the face of the bat. There was definite bat, but it was after the ball hit the pad. So HawkEye will decide this. Three reds on HawkEye and Roach is gone now. West Indies are nine down. WI have exhausted their reviews.. 219/9
82.5 to ST Gabriel, 79 kph, it is the googly and West Indies are all out. It rips back in, Gabriel plays the line, the ball spins back in, bounces extra and the ball takes the inside edge and bobbles to short leg. Another sharp catch from Ervine. That leaves Hope 90*. 219/10
65.2 to RL Chase, But Raza will have the final laugh! Good length on off stump, sharp offspin once again and this time it takes the inside edge of his bat. The ball smacks his pad after that, but that only makes the ball loop further, helping the short-leg fielder to pounce onto that in a flash. Chase has to go, and the partnership is broken.. 174/4
75.4 to SO Dowrich, edged and gone! Quick around off, but Dowrich gets forward, the ball takes the outside edge and lobs straight to slip. It's another wicket for a spinner, just enough turn for Williams to take the shoulder of the bat, some extra bounce too. Fantastic delivery. Dowrich's horror form continues. 202/6
79.6 to JO Holder, out, lbw or caught? Holder wants to review, that means he feels he did not hit the ball. Quick on middle and leg, the ball spun to beat Holder's flick. No bat. Now, all comes down to HawkEye. It's quick on leg, and it seems unlikely the ball will miss leg stump. All it needs to do is pitch in line and clip the leg stump. But there also seems to be some bat as the ball passes. There was a catch at gully, but did that carry? Three reds on HawkEye, but it seems there is definitely bat. The third umpire thinks there is no bat, but there was some spike with the ball kissing the edge. Hmm, interesting. Holder lbw. Don't think that's the right decision though.. 212/7
81.6 to D Bishoo, another one. Worked straight into short leg's hands. Quick delivery outside off, the ball spinning in. Bishoo can't help himself from nudging the ball with the spin, he didn't keep it down or hit it hard enough to make the catch harder. But Craig Ervine stays low and takes a wonderful catch, his eyes on the ball right through, takes it in front of him. 218/8

TOTAL61.3 Ov (RR: 2.58)159
Fall of wickets: 1-44 (Solomon Mire, 11.5 ov), 2-91 (Hamilton Masakadza, 26.1 ov), 3-93 (Brendan Taylor, 28.3 ov), 4-110 (Sean Williams, 35.2 ov), 5-123 (Sikandar Raza, 42.4 ov), 6-133 (Craig Ervine, 46.1 ov), 7-139 (Malcolm Waller, 49.3 ov), 8-147 (Regis Chakabva, 52.1 ov), 9-147 (Graeme Cremer, 53.6 ov), 10-159 (Chris Mpofu, 61.3 ov)
61.3 to CB Mpofu, And that's the end! Zimbabwe are all out for 159. Back of a length outside off and this time Mpofu's poke catches the outside edge of the blade. Dowrich swallows that and we're done. Time for tea.. 159/10
49.3 to MN Waller, Cartwheel! Good length on off stump, Waller defends down the wrong line and the ball goes between bat and pad this time. Crashes into middle stump and the stick cartwheels away. 139/7
53.6 to AG Cremer, dragged on! He hid the shiny side as he ran in, bowled this full outside off, this wobbled away just a touch. Enough width which Cremer looked to use and flay through cover, only managed to drag it back onto the stumps. Should've looked to get closer to the ball, paid the price for poor technique. 147/9
26.1 to H Masakadza, And spin does the trick! Full on off stump and Masakadza comes forward for the defense. But extra spin on offer this time, and it takes a small edge off his bat. Dowrich does well to hold on to it. Feather touch, but good enough for the wicket. His watch has ended. 91/2
28.3 to BRM Taylor, And Taylor lasts only seven balls! good length on middle stump and Taylor tries to play a reverse paddle sweep. First slip anticipated that shot and was already running to his right when Taylor makes contact. The shot isn't well timed, and sort of loops up instead. The fielder has to move a few steps to complete a very sharp catch. Zimbabwe in trouble. 93/3
42.4 to Sikandar Raza, What have you done, Raza?! Flighted on off stump and the batsman's eyes lit up. Went for a big slog, trying to go over extra cover, but it's in the air. Shannon Gabriel runs in from long off and does the rest. For a while, though, the fielder had no clue where the ball was.. 123/5
46.1 to CR Ervine, out first ball! full on middle stump and he misses the sweep completely. The ball went straight through, and that's plumb lbw. After consultation with Waller, Ervine decides not to review. Good decision.. 133/6
52.1 to RW Chakabva, turn, bounce and indecision in shot selection has resulted in Chakabva's downfall. Bishoo has five. He shapes to cut but the ball hits the rough and spins away. He pulled out of the cut at the very last moment but hung is bat out nevertheless as the ball skewed to Roston Chase at backward point. 147/8
11.5 to SF Mire, And the slower ball works! Mire's debut innings ends. Full outside off and Mire, rather frustratedly, slogs it towards the leg side. The elevation is there, but not the distance, and Kraigg Brathwaite at deep midwicket does well to settle under the ball early and falls to his knees as he completes the catch. Nice change-up from the experienced bowler. 44/1
35.2 to SC Williams, reverse swing has done the trick. Super lazy from Williams. Perhaps he was influenced by the deliveries that kept coming back in. This time, Roach got this length ball to move away from outside off, Williams had a waft at that and got a thin nick through to the keeper. West Indies are chipping away. 110/4

Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Kieran Powell, 10.3 ov), 2-107 (Kyle Hope, 44.4 ov), 3-174 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 76.2 ov), 4-211 (Shai Hope, 88.1 ov), 5-224 (Jermaine Blackwood, 89.4 ov), 6-244 (Shane Dowrich, 93.2 ov), 7-277 (Jason Holder, 100.2 ov), 8-369 (Devendra Bishoo, 122.3 ov), 9-369 (Kemar Roach, 122.4 ov), 10-373 (Roston Chase, 125.6 ov)
44.4 to KA Hope, Jarvins pins Kyle Hope in front! Nice and full, reverse-swings in to ping the front pad below the knee-roll in line with middle, as Hope falls over the flick. That's pretty plumb and the umpire raises his finger. Reward for an excellent spell from Jarvis. This would have carried onto cannon into middle and leg stumps. 107/2
88.1 to SD Hope, Kyle Hope: lbw b Jarvis. Shai Hope: lbw b Jarvis. Reiffel, the umpire, raises his finger. Shai calls for a review. Back of a length and skids back in to smack the flap of the front pad, beating the inside edge. The tracker suggests it would go onto hit the leg stump. West Indies lose Shai Hope and a review. 211/4
89.4 to J Blackwood, length ball, drifts in on off, makes Blackwood poke at it, and beats the outside edge. Has Williams left Blackwood overbalanced? A stumping chance has been sent upstairs. Yes, Blackwood is overbalanced, and has no part of the back foot behind the crease. Casual effort from Blackwood but WI's lead approaches 300. 224/5
93.2 to SO Dowrich, Dowrich nicks off to slip. Dangled up outside off and breaks away, Dowrich spars at it, and edges it low to first slip, where Hamilton Masakadza, who had dropped one in the morning, bends low to snap it up. 244/6
125.6 to RL Chase, And he's stranded on 95! Oh dear, the field changes played too much on Chase's mind. Tried to get the ton with a six, and goes for a wild slog off the over's last ball. Pushes it flat and quick on middle stump, goes straight through and removes the leg stump. West Indies finish with a lead of 433.. 373/10
10.3 to KOA Powell, His third wicket in five balls! He misses the hat-trick, but takes a wicket two balls later. It's full on off stump, expecting the legspin, but it goes straight through, curls around his outside edge, and then knocks the off stump out. Powell's done.. 25/1
100.2 to JO Holder, Holder eyes up an encore, dares to hit against the break, and ends up slicing a catch to the left of point. Looped up and spins away, this time Cremer foils Holder's attempt to blast it over the leg-side boundary. 277/7
122.3 to D Bishoo, oh, no. What have you done, Bishoo? The first fifty will have to wait and that's stumps. He got a little too greedy, I reckon. Sees the flight and gets down on one knee to nail this slog. So far so good, except Sean Williams was lurking around the corner and was on the move as he held on to that rocket hit. Bishoo falls one short of his Test best too.. 369/8
122.4 to KAJ Roach, Strikes first ball! Took one last ball of day three, and takes on day four's first ball. A googly first up, full outside off and comes in sharply, squeezing through bat and ball. On a hat-trick, for the second time this Test.. 369/9
76.2 to KC Brathwaite, indecision in footwork has cost Brathwaite. This is excellent from Raza, who gets this ball to spin back in sharply from the rough outside off stump. Brathwaite looks to play back and across but this one came back in to hit him on the back leg. The ball didn't have much distance to travel from the point of impact. Would've been umpire's call even if he would've reviewed. 174/3

28.6 to SF Mire, And Mire misses out on a debut fifty! Full on leg stump, tries to squeeze the ball out, but takes the inside edge of the bat, then hits his pad, and then ricochets onto the stumps. The young man has to go after a promising show. A beautiful delivery, to be honest. Late tail in. 109/2
41.6 to CR Ervine, he's been given out lbw and he wasn't keen on the review. But Taylor changes his opinion. They've reviewed. He was caught right on the back foot in front of middle stump, as he tried to flick this. Looks plumb. He was ready to walk back, but was convinced otherwise...pitching on middle, hitting leg. Review lost.. 141/3
47.3 to SC Williams, oh it was coming from Williams. Poor show from an experienced batsman. Steps out at a length ball. Nowhere near the pitch. In the end he has to try ad block with bat and pad close together. He might have got an inside edge onto pad. It lobbed to the keeper who also took off the bails. Out two ways, possibly. Sums up his stay; he was offering chances everywhere. 155/4
67.2 to Sikandar Raza, And Bishoo takes a wicket off a loosener! Short on leg stump, spins across and he cuts this away from his body from outside off stump. He could've hit that for four anywhere, but...finds Chase at short extra cover. He's got to go, and Bishoo strikes. With that it's drinks.. 219/5
81.2 to AG Cremer, oh it's worked! Well, well, well. They showed pictures of the old ball and you couldn't tell a seam used to be there. Bishoo has a seam now. And he gets it to rip away from leg stump. He looks to flick, closes the face too early and lobs back a simple return catch. 263/9
74.5 to RW Chakabva, leaps to his left and takes the return catch. Tossed up at off stump. Coaxes him to drive. He takes it on but is beaten by the loop. Can't get close enough to the pitch of this. Bunts it back feebly and Chase does well. 249/7
90.4 to CB Mpofu, great catch at long-on. Mpofu bludgeons this fulll ball on leg stump and he's hopping in the crease "get up, get up!". But it isn't enough elevation. Long-on judges this well and puts in the perfect jump to hold onto it. 316/10
27.2 to H Masakadza, And the part-timer strikes! Good length just outside off, tries to work the ball behind square on the leg side, but takes the bat's top edge, then the thigh pad, and lobs to short leg. No mistake from the infielder this time. Gobbled.. 99/1
