1.4 to TS Kamunhukamwe, nabbed brilliantly at short cover! His comeback doesn't last long, after he takes a step or two down to this full ball just outside off which was also in the slot to be driven. But he can only push that in the air, with Balbirnie going low to his right to complete the catch. 3/1
1.5 to RW Chakabva, trapped on the boot, and gone! On a hat-trick is Adair! Chakabva too skipped down after going across, but the ball was an inswinging yorker, as he was struck on middle and off. That was some swing early on, with the umpire thinking about it for a second. 3/2
15.2 to D Myers, fuller outside off, goes for a slog sweep this time but ends up top-edging it towards deep square leg where Little takes a brilliant catch to his left. 91/4
Josh Little411614.00162000
6.6 to W Madhevere, goes for the pull, but top-edges to the man at midwicket! Madhevere was always struggling to get going - he was on 9 off 20 so far after all - as he tried to pull a short of a length ball on off, but miscued it. Another early blow for Zimbabwe, and that is a wicket maiden for Little too. 34/3

Blessing Muzarabani401804.50100010
Richard Ngarava401413.50191010
7.3 to W McClintock, top-edged to point, and with that, half the Ireland side is gone! Skips down the pitch to the good length ball on middle and off, and looks to go over the off side. But he ends up edging to point to end an unconvincing innings. 51/5
Luke Jongwe402937.25132200
2.6 to KJ O'Brien, clips the off bail with a beauty! Slower delivery from Jongwe on a good length just outside off - in fact, it was an offcutter that angled in after pitching - with the ball hitting the top of off after finding the gap between KOB's inside edge and his pad. He went for the push half-heartedly it seemed, and even lost his bottom hand there. 17/1
4.3 to PR Stirling, chipped to extra cover! Soft dismissal. Jongwe has his shoe off in celebration. Shumba leaps a little to his left, and is delighted to grab that. It was very similar to the first ball of the over, in that it was full and around off, with Stirling making room to go over cover again. But fails to keep it down this time, and lobs an easy catch to the fieder. 30/3
13.5 to NA Rock, holes out to deep square leg. Short outside off, Rock goes for the pull but fails to keep it down and an easy catch for the fielder. Is that the game?. 91/7
Donald Tiripano403137.75102101
3.5 to A Balbirnie, edged behind, and gone! Sharp movement away from the batter after pitching on a good length on middle. Balbirnie jabs at that away from his body, with the ball moving away from him and taking the outside edge after he tried to open the face of the bat. His bottom hand was off too, and he was almost ready to walk back before the umpire gave it out. 22/2
5.2 to HT Tector, pocketed at slip! Tector can't believe what he has done. Goes fishing to this full and wide-ish ball outside off, which is also angling away after pitching. He goes for the flash, but gets an outside edge with the fielder taking a dolly. 30/4
17.4 to AR McBrine, pressure! McBrine looks for the big hit but ends up helping this length ball around off straight down the throat of deep square leg. 104/8
Wellington Masakadza301515.0071010
12.5 to SC Getkate, trapped in front. A length ball on middle and leg, kept a touch low and beat Getkate on the flick to hit him in front of middle and leg. Would have gone on to hit the leg stick. 87/6
