5.5 to KJ O'Brien, gone, the changes of pace are proving difficult to hit on this pitch. Slower length ball, angling into leg stump and following the batter's move to make room. Looks to loft it down the ground, but doesn't middle it at all, ends up spooning a simple catch to the right of mid-off. 32/1
15.3 to A Balbirnie, nabbed straight at deep point! Balbirnie makes room and stands outside leg, and tries to go inside out over extra cover with a near repeat of the shot in the previous ball. But this ball is full and slightly outside off, and is hit aerially and right into the fielder's hands. 109/2

Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Wessly Madhevere, 1.2 ov), 2-33 (Tadiwanashe Marumani, 3.5 ov), 3-54 (Regis Chakabva, 6.2 ov), 4-56 (Dion Myers, 7.2 ov), 5-84 (Milton Shumba, 10.1 ov), 6-97 (Luke Jongwe, 11.3 ov), 7-104 (Craig Ervine, 13.1 ov), 8-121 (Wellington Masakadza, 15.5 ov), 9-136 (Ryan Burl, 17.4 ov), 10-138 (Richard Ngarava, 18.2 ov)
1.2 to W Madhevere, fullish on off stump, and that's a tame end after such a promising start. But that can happen in T20 cricket. Holds up on the pitch, and he tries to make a bit of room and hit over mid-off. It doesn't come on to his bat, and he ends up slicing it squarer than intended, up in the air and down the throat of the cover fielder. 15/1
11.3 to LM Jongwe, Ballooned to the keeper! The ball never really came to him there. Slower delivery from back of the hand on a full length on off, and he went for the clip. The ball took the leading edge, as he played a bit too early to it. 97/6
17.4 to RP Burl, taken at fine leg! The entertainment is over. Slower ball on a good length on leg stump, and he swivels while playing that pull, which was really well timed. But because the boundary is pretty big on that side, the ball had to travel a long distance. Simi takes a good, low catch on the fence though. 136/9
3.5 to T Marumani, gone! Another batter falls thanks to the ball stopping on the pitch. Full, close to off stump, and on a normal T20 pitch that shot would have totally been on, but the ball stops on him, and his attempt to chip it over mid-off ends up as a slice into the hands of extra-cover. 33/2
15.5 to WP Masakadza, crashes into the stumps! That was too quick a ball for any tailender, and a really teasing length too. A fullish ball pitching on middle and off, and straightening after landing to strike his middle stump. There comes the airplane celebration, as Zimbabwe lose their eighth and Ireland inch closer. 121/8
7.2 to D Myers, got him, Zimbabwe lose their third. Short outside off, and the lack of pace off the pitch does another batter in. Looks to pull, but he can't keep it down, and ends up hitting it straight to the man at wide long-on. 56/4
13.1 to CR Ervine, hits leg stump, and bowled him! On a good length on middle and leg, and seemed to have kept low while angling in, as he tried to loft the bowler over deep midwicket or long-on. The ball scoots low, and Ervine expresses his frustration. 104/7
6.2 to RW Chakabva, appeal for lbw as he gets this to skid on with the angle from a good length and beat the inside edge as Chakabva looks to flick, and the finger goes up immediately. Unlucky, I think, for the batter, because replays suggest it might have missed leg stump. Needed to straighten more to finish within the stumps, I think. It just skidded on with the angle. 54/3
10.1 to M Shumba, bowled him! Shumba goes for the sweep to this full delivery on middle and of, which also seemed to be turning into him. But he missed that while trying to slog behind the short boundary, and the ball crashed into middle and off. 84/5
