19.2 to DJM Short, first wicket! Short slices this in the air, and the short ball does him in. Goes for the leg-side swipe, but he was through his shot too early. Taken by the keeper. 223/1
19.4 to AJ Finch, full and wide outside off stump, and Finch tries to cut it past point. He's overbalanced and falls over, and ends up hitting his bat onto his off stump. The ball's dislodged, and Finch has to go! Take a bow, sir! The highest T20I score ever by a batsman, having broken his own world record.. 228/2

Billy Stanlake3039113.0084230
5.5 to SF Mire, full just outside off, and that's been driven to mid on. Hit uppishly, but it can't clear the infield. Stoinis cups his hands in front of his face, and completes a comfortable soft dismissal. Zimbabwe two down. 57/2
Jhye Richardson402315.75142120
3.3 to CJ Chibhabha, chopped on! Length ball outside off, but angling into the batsman. Tries to cut, and he under-edges this onto his pads. The ball ricochets off his pads and into Carey's gloves, and the umpire raises his finger to the keeper's appeal. 42/1
Ashton Agar411624.00121000
7.5 to TK Musakanda, full on middle, and he goes for the expansive sweep! Misses the shot, and the ball hits his front leg. Agar appeals and the umpire raises his finger. 71/3
9.3 to H Masakadza, deceived by the length! Excellent ball from Agar to prise out the wicket. Saw Masakadza skipping down and dropped his length. The ball pitched outside off, and then spun further away, with the batsman halfway down the wicket. Carey collects in a flash, and wastes no time to whip the bails off. 90/4
D'Arcy Short2020010.0032100
Andrew Tye411233.00182000
10.5 to PJ Moor, caught and bowled! Moor lobs this straight to Tye. Full on off, and he drives straight. Deceived by the slower ball, and he taps it to the bowler for an easy catch. Zimbabwe five down now. 98/5
12.4 to E Chigumbura, full on off, and he tees off for a big shot. Well, that's what he wanted to do, but Tye's slower ball induces the false shot from the batsman. Skies it, and Short - at long on - races forward to complete an easy catch. 101/6
17.1 to RP Burl, full outside off, and Burl drags this to the leg side. Swings through the ball's line, but mistimes it to long on. The easiest of catches for Richardson. 121/8
Glenn Maxwell10717.0040100
13.6 to TS Chisoro, slogged! But straight to deep midwicket. Tries to play another big shot, but mistimes it to the fielder in the deep. Not off the bat's sweet spot. 108/7
Marcus Stoinis201115.5071030
18.1 to CB Mpofu, short on middle, and he tries to pull. Slices it though, and Short races in front mid on to complete a simple catch. Zimbabwe nine down. 122/9
