TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 5.85, 83 Mins)117/7
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Wessly Madhevere, 0.6 ov), 2-5 (Tadiwanashe Marumani, 2.5 ov), 3-43 (Dion Myers, 6.6 ov), 4-73 (Craig Ervine, 10.4 ov), 5-79 (Regis Chakabva, 12.1 ov), 6-89 (Milton Shumba, 15.2 ov), 7-113 (Ryan Burl, 18.6 ov)
0.6 to W Madhevere, Neil Rock effects his first dismissal in international cricket. On a length and seams away outside off, Madhevere jabs at it and nicks it off to the keeper. 2/1
2.5 to T Marumani, Excellent overhead catch from Stirling at slip. The pressure tells on Marunami. He shimmies out for a leg-side hack, Young drags his length back and finds the outside edge which flies through to Stirling, who is fresh off winning the Hundred with Southern Brave. 5/2
15.2 to M Shumba, caught behind! Back of a length on off and moving across and away. Pokes at it, and it's taken a faint edge! Debutant catches. 89/6
10.4 to CR Ervine, taken! Ervine falls just when he was beginning to look good. Comes down the ground to loft it straight back but it has been toe-ended instead. Simple one at wide long on. 73/4
12.1 to RW Chakabva, bowled him! Beautiful one. The wrong'un it appears. Full just outside off but turns in instead of going away. Chakabva is therefore nowhere in position for the cut, and that has taken off stump!. 79/5
6.6 to D Myers, Getkate storms through the defences of Myers. After beating the outside edge, he brings this back-of-a-length delivery back into Myers to hit the top of middle. Such a pretty sight for a fast bowler. 43/3

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 5.70, 89 Mins)114/9
Fall of wickets: 1-27 (Paul Stirling, 5.2 ov), 2-44 (Andy Balbirnie, 8.3 ov), 3-65 (George Dockrell, 10.4 ov), 4-65 (Kevin O'Brien, 10.5 ov), 5-70 (Curtis Campher, 11.6 ov), 6-76 (Shane Getkate, 13.3 ov), 7-88 (Neil Rock, 15.5 ov), 8-113 (Barry McCarthy, 19.4 ov), 9-113 (Craig Young, 19.5 ov)
11.6 to C Campher, five down! A nothing ball on off stump, but he wants to change gears. Down on one knee and looks to slog sweep over deep midwicket. However, it goes straight to the only fielder in the deep on the leg side.. 70/5
13.3 to SC Getkate, the last thing you want when you try the reverse sweep. These wickets are beginning to feel like unforced errors now. Full on middle, and he opts for the reverse sweep. Mistimed, up in the air, and simple one for conventional short third man diving forward to gobble that up. 76/6
19.4 to BJ McCarthy, bowled him! Full outside off. Walks across to ramp it over short fine leg. But ends up hitting the ball onto his stumps.. 113/8
5.2 to PR Stirling, Jongwe bowls Stirling and breaks into a little jig. Much fuller and nips back in from outside off, Stirling has a big drive at it and is castled. 27/1
15.5 to NA Rock, Rock is rocked! Back of a length on leg but the ball doesn't bounce as expected. Makes room to cut, but it stays low....crashes into middle. 88/7
8.3 to A Balbirnie, pushed through flat and quick on middle, gathers pace off the pitch. Balbirne does not make contact with a sweep and is pinned in front for 6 off 8 balls. 44/2
10.4 to GH Dockrell, sharp catch! Flat to long off! Tossed up outside off, and looks to go inside out over cover. But hit straighter than he would've.. 65/3
10.5 to KJ O'Brien, googly! And he's on a hat-trick. Good length on off and turning in. Tentatively looks to defend and O'Brien is now gone too.. 65/4
