Shingi Masakadza816818.50267420
49.3 to TWM Latham, he misses out on a maiden ODI fifty but a sparky knock from Latham, he backed away again and tried to hit through the covers, Shingi pitched it full and beat the drive to knock the stumps over. 364/6
Kyle Jarvis917308.11299300
Prosper Utseya1007137.10203300
38.3 to BB McCullum, this is outside off and McCullum gets down again and tries to send it over midwicket but finds Shingi well inside the boundary. 246/3
40.6 to KS Williamson, Williamson tried to loft this over long-on after coming down but ends up picking out the fielder, slight stemming of the runs by Zimbabwe as they chip away. 261/4
48.5 to RJ Nicol, finally Zimbabwe take a catch as Nicol swings another full ball towards deep midwicket, Shingi holds on to end a very controlled innings by Nicol, he is clapped off by the fielding side. 353/5
Elton Chigumbura805506.87245240
Ray Price1006716.70243310
23.4 to MJ Guptill, Guptill has thrown it away again, he said he was grumpy after getting out on 70 in the previous game, he'll be more grumpy here after pulling a half-tracker on middle into the hands of Shingi who took a good running catch on the fence. 131/1
Hamilton Masakadza503617.2082100
32.4 to JDP Oram, Chakabva does what Chigumbura couldn't and takes a simple catch running in from the long-on boundary as Oram skied the long hop outside off high, but he should take a bow for a devastating knock which has completely overwhelmed Zimbabwe. 208/2

Kyle Mills812723.37362100
4.2 to S Matsikenyeri, horrible swipe at a good length ball on the stumps, gets a thick top edge which looks like it will fall short of third man running in but Ellis makes good ground and dives full stretch with both hands to take it inches from the grass. 12/2
6.5 to BRM Taylor, Brendon takes out Brendan, he tries it again to a ball closer to off, gets a big top edge which skies high in the air behind the wicket, McCullum thinks he's under it before diving to take it with both hands. 17/3
Tim Southee1005015.00364040
1.4 to H Masakadza, good length ball outside off, gives himself a bit of room and throws the kitchen sink at it, but can't get it over a leaping Brownlie at point, Zimbabwe again lose a wicket early. 5/1
Jacob Oram1012932.90401020
13.3 to RW Chakabva, another one goes, Chakabva was completely beaten by a full in-dipper from Oram which struck him on middle as he lost balance, sliding into the leg stump after pitching very full. 35/4
19.1 to MN Waller, loose stroke, outside off and swinging away, Waller wafts without moving the feet and gets a snick through to Baz, half the Zimbabweans back in the hut. 62/5
39.1 to E Chigumbura, oh dear, undoes some of the good work with a poor shot, full outside off and he tries to pump it on the up through the covers but doesn't move his feet, gets an inside edge which cannons into the stumps. 167/7
Tarun Nethula1005505.50253100
Rob Nicol402516.2592000
35.3 to T Taibu, well the Batting Powerplay again brings the bowling team a wicket, Taibu rocked back and pulled a short ball, but ended up sending it down long-off's throat. 142/6
Andrew Ellis502505.00183020
Kane Williamson301615.3370100
49.5 to SW Masakadza, Kane picks up a wicket as Shingi went for another big hit, skied up in the air for cover to settle underneath it, Shingi departs after a breezy knock. 231/8
