Anwar Ali3031010.3354001
Mohammad Sami403819.50121400
19.1 to E Chigumbura, impressive overhead catch from Shehzad! Length on off from round the stumps, Chigumbura aims for a lofted drive and Shehzad takes it at long-off after moving to his left. End of a charming cameo.... 168/3

Imad Wasim201407.0061100
Shahid Afridi403619.0052100
16.4 to V Sibanda, juggle, juggle and Anwar hangs onto it! Dropped shortish and on a leg-stump line, he goes for a pull and makes a decent connection but finds Anwar, who just about holds onto it at deep midwicket. The third attempt does it... 136/2
Shoaib Malik402315.7551000
8.3 to H Masakadza, holes out to long-on! Pakistan break the opening stand. Fuller and on middle and leg, Sibanda goes for a lofted strike and mishits it to Anwar Ali. He intended to go a lot squarer but did not get hold of it. Shehzad hugs Malik.. 68/1

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Chris Mpofu402526.25122110
16.5 to Umar Akmal, Mpofu pins Umar Akmal lbw for 30. Change of pace, low full toss on middle, Umar is early into the slog and does not connect. Trapped plumb in front of middle. Undone by the slower one. The bowler collapses in his followthrough and celebrates. 152/6
18.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, Top catch from Raza.. Crucial wicket for Zimbabwe. This was on a back of a length and outside off, slower in pace, Rizwan goes across the line and slogs it. Raza runs in from deep midwicket, hurls himself forward and snaffles a good catch. Mpofu looks skywards and thumps his chest.. 161/8
Brian Vitori3.403619.8195110
4.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, Vitori strikes as Shehzad picks out mid-off. This was a well-directed short ball outside off, has ample legs on it to surprise the batsman. He aims for a pull, hit high on the bat as he splices it to Sibanda at mid-off. 44/1
Sean Williams403228.0071200
14.2 to Shahid Afridi, Afridi's attempted encore fails. Mid-on and mid-off converge, almost collide. Raza moves to his left from mid-on and pouches it safely. Big blow for the hosts. Lala made room again, Williams bowled it flat and full on off, he sliced it high in the air. Well-judged catch from Raza. 130/5
17.3 to Anwar Ali, Anwar Ali charges down the track and perishes to a full toss. Can Zimbabwe pull off an upset? Anwar swings hard but connect connect. Williams rattles the base of the leg stump. Anwar shakes his head as he walks back to the hut. 155/7
Prosper Utseya403117.7552010
8.3 to Nauman Anwar, Sibanda takes it at long-on! This was a nothing ball, shortish and outside off. Nauman wants to smash it over long-on. He does not enough enough power on it, mistiming it to Sibanda. 81/2
Graeme Cremer2027013.5032200
Sikandar Raza201919.5022000
13.3 to Mukhtar Ahmed, Mukhtar gone now... Tossed up on the leg stump, he loads up to lift it over long-on. Ends up finding Sibanda there.. Dolly catch, no errors here. And with that Sibanda becomes the first Zimbabwe player to take three catches in a T20 International. 117/4
