Full commentary

Butcher ends with five wickets and a hundred in the same game, and no doubt is a shoo-in for the Man of the Match award.

The match also belonged to two other debutants - Anderson, who took five wickets on debut to skittle Zimbabwe out in the first innings... and McGrath, who hit a fifty on debut and then took three wickets as a part-time medium pacer

Zimbabwe could not apply themselves in the first innings with the bat, and on following on, they fared only a little better, giving England a win by an innings an 92 runs.

Zimbabwe, defeated in three days, will no doubt feel disheartened ahead of the Chester-le-Street Test, but they do still have a chance to square the series with the win there.

Man of the Match has now been declared as Mark Butcher.

The Chester-le-Street Test starts on June 5th, and there is other cricket till then too, notably the seven-ODI series between Australia and the West Indies, so join us for live coverage of all the cricket.

Butcher to Friend, OUT

all over! Friend edges Butcher to second slip, not being able to smash this away like the previous balls, and Zimbabwe although doing better than in the first innings, are bundled out for 233, and England use their extra eight overs to good

Butcher to Friend, SIX runs

Friend slogs this away, as if the bad light were no problem at all, and six runs to Friend!

68.3

Butcher to Friend, FOUR runs

driven nicely by Friend this time, the batsman almost playing in the dark and yet smashing this to mid on for four more!

Butcher to Friend, 4 leg byes

drifting down leg, and Friend gets some pad on that, the ball runs away for four leg byes

Giles to Price, OUT

Price sweeps that, but straight into the short leg fielder, it balloons into the air and Trescothick at short midwicket snaps it up. Unlucky dismissal for Price, but England now sniff a win tonight.
