Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Sikandar Raza, 1.5 ov), 2-56 (Hamilton Masakadza, 6.2 ov), 3-78 (Sean Williams, 8.5 ov), 4-111 (Vusi Sibanda, 14.3 ov), 5-131 (Brendan Taylor, 16.6 ov)
1.5 to Sikandar Raza, poor shot! Raza looked to repeat the shot from the previous ball, he may have played this too early and the ball came on a bit slower, pulled straight to mid-on where Sorensen hops and takes it over his head. 14/1
14.3 to V Sibanda, another one straight to the fielder, this was dropped short and Sibanda couldn't help but go for the pull, rocked back, didn't get the distance, straight to deep midwicket. 111/4
16.6 to BRM Taylor, Taylor perishes in the deep and Ireland have picked up an important wicket, tossed up outside off and Taylor went down the track to loft inside out, Joyce jogs to his right at deep extra cover and takes the catch. 131/5
6.2 to H Masakadza, another wicket off a poor shot! Masakadza went down the track but changed his shot and half heartedly chipped this straight to short midwicket, he was let off earlier but failed to make full use of the chance. 56/2
8.5 to SC Williams, Appeal for a stumping and Williams is walking! And ironically it's the sweep that's cost him his wicket, this was cleverly tossed up McBrine, slowed down the pace and foxed him, Williams was too early on the sweep, he had a long stride forward, Wilson was alert and whipped off the bails immediately, Williams' back foot was outside the crease and he failed to get his bat back on time. 78/3

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.20)164/7
Fall of wickets: 1-80 (William Porterfield, 8.2 ov), 2-100 (Paul Stirling, 10.3 ov), 3-129 (Andrew Poynter, 14.4 ov), 4-129 (Gary Wilson, 14.6 ov), 5-157 (Kevin O'Brien, 17.6 ov), 6-162 (Ed Joyce, 19.3 ov), 7-162 (Max Sorensen, 19.4 ov)
10.3 to PR Stirling, Raza takes the skier and it was well judged! Stirling falls to a poor shot, he was looking to slam that straight down the ground, didn't get to the pitch of it and it was miles up in the air, Raza gets under it near the region of mid-on and hangs on to it on the fall. 100/2
14.4 to AD Poynter, There's an appeal for a catch at midwicket but it could be a bump ball. This was full and swinging in, Poynter looked to flick it away and it went low to Chigumbura who took the catch cleanly falling forward, no doubts there, the question was if the ball bounced once after it made contact with the bat, replays confirmed that the ball ballooned off the bottom of the bat so it's fair. 129/3
14.6 to GC Wilson, are we in for a twist here? Clever captaincy here getting in a slip, this was a length ball outside off and Wilson chased it, thick outside edge and Masakadza showed good reflexes to take it to his left, that went quickly off the bat. 129/4
17.6 to KJ O'Brien, after the assault the bowler gets his wicket! Funny old over, this was pitched up and he stayed at the crease and lofted it down to long-off, the fielder was pushed back. 157/5
19.3 to EC Joyce, and a magnificent inswinging yorker from Panyangara makes things interesting again! Joyce made a bit of room and exposed his stumps, he failed to get his bat down to dig it out, the ball just kissed the leg stump and knocked down the leg bail. 162/6
8.2 to WTS Porterfield, some relief for Zimbabwe! Tossed up on middle and leg, Porterfield goes for the slog, miscues it and Maruma takes the catch running forward from deep midwicket. 80/1
