Kemar Roach903413.77343001
48.3 to V Sibanda, Smoking guns! Roach literally and otherwise breaks through the defences of the batsman. The bat is broken in two, the off bail has fallen off and Sibanda has to go. A bizarre end to an innings that was for most part, bizarre.. 241/5

Kieron Pollard1005925.90295140
37.1 to T Taibu, trapped in front. Taibu's fine innings, full of improvisations, has ended. It landed on a length just outside off and moved in with the angle. Taibu was on the front foot, looking to just tap it to the on side but some how missed to make contact and was hit on the back pad. Bit of a tame dismissal. Fine innings, though.. 167/2
45.4 to E Chigumbura, hit high towards long on, Chigumbara could not get enough bat on that and hence did not get enough distance. Good innings and a crucial breakthrough. 215/4
Nikita Miller1015215.20325010
18.4 to H Masakadza, Given out lbw but it perhaps was missing the off stump. It was flighted on the off and middle line, Masakadza went for his sweep shot but missed. The ball hit the back pad around the line of off stump and it appeared as if it was turning away from the stumps. The umpire must have given it out as it struck the back-foot. 67/1

Prosper Utseya1014714.70374220
42.4 to KA Pollard, Pollard falls. Zimbabwe captain breaks through. It was a loopy flighted delivery on the middle stump line, Pollard doesn't quite get forward, just on drives, sort of chips it uppishly, and straight to mid-on. Chanderpaul is still out there. West Indies five down. Pressure. Game on.. 193/5
Ray Price1013103.10360000
Graeme Cremer1004804.80324020
Shingi Masakadza3036312.0063211
47.5 to S Chanderpaul, BIG wicket! Chanderpaul is gone and this game is far from over. Picks the length ball and times it beautifully, probably too beautifully, it carries to Chigumbura at long off, who is standing a few paces in, but holds his nerve and more importantly, holds the catch.. 233/6
49.4 to DR Smith, and he botches it up! Great ball under pressure from the debutant, but in the circumstances a really ordinary shot from Smith, who looks to hit the straight ball across the line. He misses and the stumps are rearranged. Benn walks out to the middle. 4 off 2!. 251/8
49.5 to SJ Benn, Big Benn falls! Cremer holds on to a steepler and West Indies are succumbing to pressure! Benn goes for an almighty hoick over midwicket and hits it really high. Cremer runs in a long way from the deep midwicket fence and takes it millimetres off the ground. Super catch! 4 off 1, and the batsmen did not cross over, would you believe it!. 251/9
Greg Lamb1003513.50350130
22.6 to CH Gayle, Trapped in front! Huge wicket this. It drifted in from round the stumps, lands on the middle stump line, and straightens to hit him in front of middle. That's out. Gayle had pressed his front leg across, perhaps tad too across, and had to play around the front pad. Too late. Gone! What a strike by Lamby!. 99/1
Elton Chigumbura503226.40131121
29.3 to AB Barath, And that's out! Bowling change works, pace change works. Short again, but not so wide and Barath again looks for an expansive cut, but only manages to get an inside edge. The stumps are rattled and Barath is gone.. 126/2
48.4 to D Ramdin, He's a goner! Superb bowling here, keeps it straight and simple. Ramdin goes for an almighty heave through the covers and makes contact with thin air. Timber is struck and he'll have to go back.. 235/7
