2.6 to I Kaia, The perfect yorker from Starc! The late inswing does Kaia in and Australia are truly underway in Townsville. Spears it very full just outside off, getting to swing it back in ever so late. Kaia looks to jam it out but is beaten by the inward movement. Beaten for pace and the ball kisses the off stump. No real footwork from the Zimbabwe opener there. A wicket-maiden for Starc.. 13/1
4.3 to W Madhevere, Huge appeal and given! Starc is on a roll. Madhevere seems to be trapped in front and he talks with his partner about a review but has been dissuaded by Marumani. Full and swinging in on middle and leg, he misses the flick and is struck on the pad. Umpire's call on impact, shows the Hawk-Eye. Zimbabwe rocked early today and the hero with the bat in the first game is gone.. 13/2
6.1 to T Marumani, Third wicket for Starc and he is one away from 200! Catching practice for substitute Labuschagne at forward square leg. Angles it full on middle and leg, Marumani absolutely middles the flick but straight to the fielder. This is getting bad to worse for Zimbabwe.. 14/3
14.5 to Sikandar Raza, taken at deep square leg, and Raza's brief party ends already! Gets another short ball, but this is on off, and rising on to the batter. He has to leap in the crease to get on top of the bounce - unlike the one off which he hit four, this was straighter - and ends up getting a top edge. He hit ten off the over already, but never looked in control of this shot. Zimbabwe lose another in a hurry. 46/4
17.5 to RW Chakabva, another wicket given away in pursuit of attack! This ball looks to be a bit fuller than the one he hit a four off two balls earlier, but he opened the bat face to slice this above the in field. Didn't time it at all, and found mid-off, where Starc had to move a few steps to his left to catch it after the ball was ballooned. 59/5
23.6 to SC Williams, Thick outside edge flies to short third. Tossed up generously outside off, it was the wrong one. Williams looks to go drive it over the off side but gets the outside edge. Green runs to his right and pouches that with a dive. Zimbabwe's major hope falls.. 83/7
27.2 to LM Jongwe, Bowled him off the back pad! Quicker one on a length, it is the flipper. It bounces more, beats Jongwe's attempted punch off the back foot, goes off the top of the back pad to hit the leg stump.. 95/9
27.5 to B Evans, Trapped in front! Zampa finishes with three to skittle out ZImbabwe for 96. Evans takes the customary review, unless he has inside-edged that. Tossed up wrong one on middle and off, Evans goes for the slog across the line but is hit on the back leg that is adjacent. He actually signaled for the review almost immediately. Did he inside edge it or did the bat hit the ground? Yep, bat hitting the ground, no contact with the bat. The Snicko perhaps fails to load but the TV umpire looks at the Hotspot to rule out the edge. Umpire's call on hitting as it just clips the stumps.. 96/10
22.3 to T Munyonga, Edged and gone! The perfect length ball around off, Munyonga has to play at that. Looks to defend but ends up getting a thick outside edge that is gobbled up by Carey.. 79/6
26.2 to RP Burl, Nicked off? Oh yes! It was a jaffa alright but for most part it seemed as if Burl had missed it completely. He looked to fend the short ball that yet again bounced more. But it ended up brushing his gloves on its way to the wicketkeeper. Green yet again among the wickets.. 93/8

Fall of wickets: 1-15 (David Warner, 2.1 ov), 2-16 (Aaron Finch, 2.3 ov)
2.1 to DA Warner, very good catch by deep third! Evans in the deep went forward and low to grab that just above the ground. Warner continues to be funky, but this time falls. He made room, and took a few steps down the pitch to try and hack that good length ball outside off. It was a wild swat in the end, as the ball took off from the top edge. 15/1
2.3 to AJ Finch, nabbed by Raza in a double attempt at first slip! Ngarava in no mood to give up despite only 97 to defend. Finch jabs at that unconvincingly - he was neither forward to that back of a length ball angling across off, nor back. In the end, it was a half-poke with a little jump in the crease while even giving the impression that he was convinced he could leave it, but the ball took the outside edge. 16/2
