Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Brendan Taylor, 3.4 ov), 2-15 (Regis Chakabva, 5.2 ov), 3-74 (Wessly Madhevere, 15.5 ov), 4-83 (Sean Williams, 18.5 ov), 5-99 (Craig Ervine, 24.1 ov), 6-106 (Sikandar Raza, 25.3 ov), 7-117 (Ryan Burl, 27.2 ov), 8-119 (Luke Jongwe, 28.2 ov), 9-121 (Blessing Muzarabani, 29.2 ov), 10-131 (Richard Ngarava, 33.6 ov)
3.4 to BRM Taylor, and Taylor ends his farewell match with a wild swing! Clean bowled! Doesn't move his feet at all to this full delivery on middle, and goes for the heave, but is completely beaten, with the ball striking his middle pole. Not a last strike he would like to remember. 11/1
5.2 to RW Chakabva, got 'im! Cleans up the other Zimbabwe opener! Chakabva undecided to play or leave, and he tries to get an angled bat down to this full delivery on middle and off at the last moment. The ball has sneaked in by then, and strikes the top of off. 15/2
29.2 to B Muzarabani, Appeal for caught behind, but is not given. And Ireland review again! Seemed like there was a noise when he went driving away from his body to this full ball slightly wide of off, with the ball taken low by the keeper. No foot movement there from Muzarabani, and that poke results in an inside edge, as confirmed by UltraEdge. Little has his third, with Ireland just one wicket away from wrapping up Zimbabwe. 121/9
27.2 to RP Burl, bowled him! Attempts an ugly mow across the line but is beaten as the ball drifts in and skids through to smash the stumps. Nowhere near the pitch of that.. 117/7
33.6 to R Ngarava, knocks back his off stump, and that is it! Goes for the pull to this fullish ball on off, but the ball is not all that short to play that shot. He misses, and Simi hits off stump to fold up Zimbabwe. 131/10
15.5 to W Madhevere, poor shot and gone! Looks to slap this over the infield but ends up offering a catch tamely to mid-on.. 74/3
18.5 to SC Williams, makes the carinal sin of playing back to a full ball, the ball pitches on off and fizzes through to beat his defence. Off-stump pegged back. Massive wicket, terrific bowling.. 83/4
24.1 to CR Ervine, have they got him? Ireland reckon they have a wicket. Yes, they have. Replays confirm there was a faint edge. Ervine pushed forward in defence but got a thin edge and has to go. It was the flight and turn that did him in.. 99/5
28.2 to LM Jongwe, rapped on the pads, and an appeal for leg before! Not given, but Ireland review. He went for the flick playing across the line to this good length ball on off, with the ball turning into him too. He is deep in his crease as well, with the ball striking his front pad just around his knee, and replays show the ball is crashing into leg stump! Ireland get another one via DRS, and Zimbabwe down and out. 119/8

TOTAL22.2 Ov (RR: 5.28, 110 Mins)118/3
Fall of wickets: 1-48 (William Porterfield, 9.2 ov), 2-89 (Paul Stirling, 17.2 ov), 3-113 (Andy Balbirnie, 21.4 ov)
9.2 to WTS Porterfield, tickled into the keeper's gloves! Short delivery on middle, and angles away from the batter, as Porterfield looks to poke at that to try and ramp that over the keeper's head. But he gets a little edge, as Chakabva takes is safely to give Zimbabwe their first wicket. 48/1
17.2 to PR Stirling, goes for the pull, but slices that high to midwicket! That had a lot of height on that, with Muzarabani right on the edge of the circle. Back of a length ball on off, and he swivels while playing at that too. Gets it from the upper half of the bat, and the ball goes sailing to the fielder, who barely has to move his feet while taking it to his right. 89/2
21.4 to A Balbirnie, chipped to extra cover! Just five runs to get, and the captain falls after yet another start. Leans forward to push at that full ball outside off, and he stands almost knowing that he was gone the moment he hit it. Never mind though, Ireland are well and safe already. 113/3
