Fall of wickets: 1-42 (Innocent Kaia, 10.5 ov), 2-87 (Tadiwanashe Marumani, 20.5 ov), 3-104 (Tony Munyonga, 24.4 ov), 4-122 (Sikandar Raza, 31.2 ov), 5-185 (Wessly Madhevere, 42.6 ov), 6-188 (Regis Chakabva, 44.3 ov), 7-190 (Ryan Burl, 44.6 ov), 8-196 (Luke Jongwe, 46.2 ov), 9-198 (Brad Evans, 46.4 ov), 10-200 (Victor Nyauchi, 47.3 ov)
47.3 to VM Nyauchi, Starc strikes, and Zimbabwe fold for 200! Sees Nyauchi make room early - and even skipped down the track - as he bowls on a good length bang in line of the stumps around middle and off. Nyauchi tries to slap, but is late on to his shot, as the middle-and-off bail is clipped. 200/10
10.5 to I Kaia, taken, return catch for Marsh! This looked like sticking in the surface for a slight second. It was a good length ball around middle and off, as Kaia pushed forward to that without much foot movement and getting to the pitch of the ball. Marsh had to go low in his follow-through, and pouched that low for Australia's first wicket. 42/1
31.2 to Sikandar Raza, And that is the end of Raza, who holes out to deep backward square leg. Short in length and angling in, he pulls but Zampa has his eyes on the ball as he runs to his left from fine leg to grab that inches before the boundary line. Five off 24 for Zimbabwe's finisher.. 122/4
44.3 to RW Chakabva, skied to mid-on! Chakabva went for the slog with not many overs to go, but couldn't time this one. It was bowled with a cross seam, and on a length just a bit too full for that attempted heave down the wicket. He was deep in the crease and got his front leg out of the way too, but didn't time that it at all. 188/6
44.6 to RP Burl, leading edge gobbled by deep third! Zimbabwe losing their way very quickly now, as Green gets his third. It was a good length ball that angled into middle and leg. Burl swung for the leg side very early, and closed his bat face. There was good pace on the ball, as it flew off a leading edge to exactly where Hazlewood was stationed at deep third.. 190/7
46.2 to LM Jongwe, another one finds the fielder in the deep, this time at deep midwicket! Green takes his fourth, with a five-for well in sight. Jongwe backed away early, and got a fullish ball angling into leg. He did get it where he wanted, although couldn't place that hoick across the line very well. 196/8
46.4 to B Evans, Green has his first five-for in ODIs! Maxwell keeps getting some easy catches at deep midwicket. This ball was on a good length, and around fifth stump. Evans hung back in the crease before trying to swipe that across the line without really getting towards the line of the ball. That went off the higher side of the bat, and again found Maxwell. 198/9
20.5 to T Marumani, A bit too adventurous and Marumani is out of here! Comes down the track a tad too early, Zampa shortens his length. He goes with the heave across the line and misses it completely to be bowled. Marumani's impressive stint ends without a half-century.. 87/2
24.4 to T Munyonga, Superb catch from Smith running backwards from mid-off. And Munyonga dies by the sword after trying to live by it. This is the flighted wrong one, he did not perhaps pick it well and looked to go over the off side. This time he lost his shape as he got down on his knee to slog it. Ended up getting a top edge and Smith had his eyes on it right from the moment it went up, even if it was running away from him. Dives full length to grab that.. 104/3
42.6 to W Madhevere, oh, gifted away to Zampa! Makes room early, and Zampa bowls the wrong one on a good length on middle and leg. This seemed to have come to him very slowly, as he ended up chipping it back to the bowler. A commendable and a memorable knock comes to an end. 185/5

TOTAL33.3 Ov (RR: 6.00)201/5
Fall of wickets: 1-43 (Aaron Finch, 7.3 ov), 2-108 (David Warner, 22.1 ov), 3-128 (Alex Carey, 25.2 ov), 4-153 (Marcus Stoinis, 29.2 ov), 5-155 (Mitchell Marsh, 29.5 ov)
7.3 to AJ Finch, Chopped on! Ngarava has his man and the dropped chance doesn't cost him much. This is excellent bowling. Finch's circumspect nature around the off stump causes his downfall and Ngarava does well to exploit it. Bowls the in-between length - neither too fall nor a good length. He is uncertain whether to go forward or play back and just hangs his bat out after getting half-forward. The ball takes the inside edge and clatters the stumps. Zimbabwe would have loved this.. 43/1
22.1 to DA Warner, Cleaned up and Raza lets the value of the wicket known with his celebrations! Darts this a bit side arm and flicks it off the middle finger and lands it full around off and middle. Warner looks to whip it over the on side but gets completely beaten on the inside to be bowled. Raza runs towards mid-on pumping his fists and why won't he. End of Warner's classic.. 108/2
25.2 to AT Carey, Excellent, well-judged catch by Nyauchi at long-on fence. Floated full outside off, spinning in to Carey, he looks to slog it but ended up getting more height than distance. Nyauchi had to backtrack a few steps to catch that and kept his eyes on the ball throughout. He was also aware of the boundary cushions behind and stops just in time. A breezy, short innings from Carey ends.. 128/3
29.2 to MP Stoinis, Legspin gets Stoinis again! Tossed up outside off, he goes for the sweep but gets a top edge. Simple catch for Raza running backwards from slip.. 153/4
29.5 to MR Marsh, Two in the over and Zimbabwe have half of Australia down. Tossed up outside off on a length, it jumps a tad more. Marsh thought it was there for the cut and nicks it fine for Chakabva to take a fine grab. Can Zimbabwe do the unthinkable from here?. 155/5
