Billy Stanlake412125.25173100
0.1 to C Zhuwao, caught behind first ball! Comes out braving the cold, goes back for an early coffee. #SmallMercies. Australia, meanwhile, are elated. Stanlake pitches it up outside off, has Zhuwao chasing after it. Normally, that would have screamed through the cover point boundary. But in this case - because of the lack of footwork - he just nicks through. 0/1
5.5 to TK Musakanda, appeal for a catch! It's Wildermuth down at thie third man boundary, running forward and diving low to pick up a fine catch. The umpires check for a no-ball and that's all they check for before sending Musakanda on his way. The dismissal is rather similar to the catch that Wildermuth dropped earlier in the game. A wild slap looking for the boundary (at cover perhaps) resulting in an edge flying to third man. This time the debutant makes a better effort. 44/3
Jhye Richardson403228.00111220
3.3 to H Masakadza, chops on! A short and wide delivery that deserves to be cut through cover point ends up pinging off the inside edge onto the stumps. Seems like Masakadza is fooled by a throttling down in pace. A wicket each in the Powerplay for Australia's quicks. That's job well done. 21/2
15.3 to PJ Moor, carves it over the top - and he really has timed the pants off it - the only problem is it sails straight to deep point. Moor takes on the long boundary and comes up short. He had to hit out though, with only four-ish overs left. 112/4
Marcus Stoinis3031010.3354110
Ashton Agar302207.3361100
Andrew Tye402837.0091110
16.4 to E Chigumbura, top edge, taken by square leg running in! It's a short ball, not really affording him the room to swing his arms. Also comes onto him too quickly, leading to a mis-hit.. 116/5
18.3 to MN Waller, taken by deep square leg! Good work from Tye, and it's his go-to delivery too. Change of pace, which is perfect against a batsman wanting to slog everything. Waller goes for a pull, mistimes it and ends up being caught, and quite easily at that. 141/6
18.6 to SF Mire, full and straight. Mire goes across the line for a slog over wide long-on - he kinda has no choice but to play shots line that - and makes no contact. That means the ball has a clear path to uproot off stump. Fifty wickets in T20s in 2018 for Tye. 142/8
Jack Wildermuth201618.0021000
19.6 to WP Masakadza, walks across outside off, trying to smash the ball over the top, perhaps a lot straighter than mid-off. But that's where it goes and Marcus Stoinis, running back, takes it over his shoulder. Fine effort to give the debutant a first ODI wicket. 151/9

Wellington Masakadza403218.00102200
2.1 to AJ Finch, taken at deep midwicket! It's a long hop from a spinner and it's absolutely smacked away. Problem is it zeroes in on Musakanda on the boundary. The in-form Finch is back in the hut and the chase is only two overs old. How will Australia respond?. 15/1
Blessing Muzarabani402135.2580020
4.3 to AT Carey, caught behind! Superb work from Muzarabani. He spent his couple of overs targeting Carey's body. Now he sends one angled across the left-hander. Carey flirts with it, looking for a single to third man, and only ends up nicking through. Pace, plenty of bounce and early success for the tall right-arm quick. 26/2
16.2 to GJ Maxwell, drives straight to short cover! With Australia almost to the finish line, their top-scorer hits a length ball off the bottom of the bat straight to Chigumbura. 129/3
18.2 to TM Head, caught at long-on! Australia are goofing off with a win in sight! The set batsman - Head, who has been ever so careful to avoid any risk in his game today - goes for a big shot with the run-rate just barely over 6. And he finds Masakadza waiting to pounce on his mistake. 139/5
Donald Tiripano3.502717.04103030
17.3 to NJ Maddinson, caught at square leg! Two wickets in two overs - are Zimbabwe still in this? Maddinson goes for a pull shot but the ball is at him a llittle quicker than he'd like. Miscues it for Muzarabani to come into play as he dives forward to take the chance. 134/4
