Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Peter Moor, 0.3 ov), 2-0 (Chamu Chibhabha, 1.2 ov), 3-33 (Richmond Mutumbami, 10.4 ov), 4-36 (Elton Chigumbura, 11.6 ov), 5-38 (Sikandar Raza, 13.6 ov), 6-48 (Malcolm Waller, 17.5 ov), 7-49 (Luke Jongwe, 18.6 ov), 8-153 (Graeme Cremer, 41.4 ov), 9-155 (Neville Madziva, 42.6 ov), 10-175 (Hamilton Masakadza, 48.3 ov)
0.3 to PJ Moor, lovely delivery, and this one is plumb. Moor is stuck in the crease, and this one slides in with the arm again. This time, the line was straighter, and it struck him in line with middle stump and would probably have gone on to hit middle and leg. 0/1
42.6 to N Madziva, that's plumb, beautifully bowled. Saw one a little shorter and shuffled across to work it into the leg side. Slid on, hurried through, and smacked his front pad right in front of the stumps. 155/9
1.2 to CJ Chibhabha, gone! Zimbabwe are two down! Back of a length, and this one leaves Chibhabha off the pitch. Goes for the punch away from the body, and only succeeds in nicking to the keeper. 0/2
48.3 to H Masakadza, another short ball, this one is shoulder high, angling into the batsman, and he goes for the pull and picks out the fielder at deep square leg. 175/10
10.4 to R Mutumbami, slow flight outside off, big shout for caught behind after Mutumbami sweeps over the ball. Was there a bottom edge on it? The umpire thought long and hard, and finally raised his finger. There certainly seemed to be a sound as it passed his bat. 33/3
11.6 to E Chigumbura, bowled him! Chigumbura steps out of his crease, and he is nowhere near the pitch to play such an aggressive shot, looking to smash that through extra cover. It's just the perfect length, and it swings back in, beats the inside-edge, and knocks back off stump. 36/4
13.6 to Sikandar Raza, bowled him! Stuck on the crease, and Ashraf bowls a spectacular inducker, jags in from outside off and knocks back off stump as Raza tries to bring his bat down to defend. The length defeated him even more than the movement, I think. 38/5
41.4 to AG Cremer, oh my. What a way to lose a wicket. It's a floaty full-toss outside off, and he goes after it and picks out the man at long-on. 153/8
18.6 to LM Jongwe, gone, and that's a super catch by Nabi. Flighted ball outside off, turns away, and he can only outside edge as he drives away from his body. Goes quickly to the left of slip, and Nabi does brilliantly to dive and grab it in both hands. 49/7

TOTAL16.1 Ov (RR: 3.58)58
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Noor Ali Zadran, 0.4 ov), 2-0 (Mohammad Nabi, 0.5 ov), 3-16 (Asghar Afghan, 3.2 ov), 4-39 (Mohammad Shahzad, 5.6 ov), 5-45 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 8.2 ov), 6-46 (Mirwais Ashraf, 8.6 ov), 7-47 (Shafiqullah, 9.5 ov), 8-49 (Samiullah Shinwari, 10.2 ov), 9-50 (Rashid Khan, 12.1 ov), 10-58 (Amir Hamza, 16.1 ov)
0.4 to Noor Ali Zadran, bowled him! off-stump yorker, and it's straightened past his outside edge and taken out off stump. That's a sensational delivery. 0/1
0.5 to Mohammad Nabi, gone, he's on a hat-trick! Wide outswinger, Nabi went for the drive away from his body, and Mutumbami moves smartly to his right to take a good catch at shoulder height, with arms at full stretch. 0/2
9.5 to Shafiqullah, and another! This is beautifully bowled, another one straightens outside off. Shafiqullah pokes with hard hands, away from his body, and Mutumbami dives at full stretch to his right to take a super low catch in one glove. 47/7
3.2 to Asghar Afghan, down the leg side, and fine leg was in the circle. That would count as a bad ball on most occasions, but Stanikzai sweeps uppishly and straight to the fielder. A few feet either side of him and that would have been four. 16/3
5.6 to Mohammad Shahzad, flighted ball on off stump, and Shahzad has thrown his wicket away. Looks like he wanted to hit it over mid-off and got too close to the pitch of the ball. Didn't get the elevation he wanted and Chigumbura dives forward to take a good low catch. 39/4
8.2 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, got him! He's been angling them across right through these two overs, and this pitched in the perfect spot. Not too wide outside off, not full enough to drive, and Hashmatullah went at it with an angled bat and edged to Masakadza at wide slip. 45/5
8.6 to Mirwais Ashraf, got him, another catch for that wide slip fielder. This time it's the right-handed batsman, Ashraf. Back of a length outside off, straightens just a touch. Ashraf punches at it, away from his body, and the thick edge falls right into Masakadza's lap. 46/6
10.2 to Samiullah Shinwari, full outside off, not full enough to drive, and Jongwe has another wicket! Seams away with some extra bounce, and Shenwari walks into a drive and edges to the keeper. Once again, his front-foot movement is a touch too late. 49/8
12.1 to Rashid Khan, short, wide, and he's cut that straight to cover point. It was there to be hit, he hit it well, but didn't keep it down, and Waller barely had to move to complete the catch. 50/9
16.1 to Amir Hamza, back of a length down the leg side, and it's all over. Jongwe finishes with a five-for as Hamza, looking to glance it off his hips, gets a little tickle through to Mutumbami, who takes another excellent catch, diving to his left this time. 58/10
