Sulieman Benn42641.50200000
0.1 to V Sibanda, What a start! We have a spinner to start proceedings and what's more we have a wicket first ball. Arm-ball, first up, coming in quickish with the arm, on the middle stump line and Sibanda doesn't pick it up at all. He has a hurried stab but can't prevent the ball from going on to hit the stumps. Clatterrrrrrrrr!. 0/1
2.2 to T Taibu, Trapped! That attempt to play the sweep shot again proves fatal this time. The ball is really full and is hit on the pad in front of middle and off stump line. It would have hit the leg stump. Gone! What a roaring start from Benn. 0/2
2.4 to S Matsikenyeri, Pandemonium! Benn is da man! This one just about straightens outside off stump and the batsman goes for a iffy drive and edges it to Ramdin. This is an unbelievable start from West Indies.. 0/3
4.3 to BRM Taylor, What is happening out there? U N B E L I E V A B L E ! Benn flights one on a length, on the middle stump line and Taylor plays all around it. I can't believe what's happening. Benn is bowling fine all right but the Zimbabwe are treating it as he is bowling some grenades out there. Poor effort from them. Credit to Benn of course but very poor cricket from Zimbabwe. 11/4
Kemar Roach411503.75151001
Ravi Rampaul402817.00163103
18.6 to AG Cremer, full, straight and Cremer loses his middle stump as he swings across the line. Poor over from Rampaul but he ends with a wicket.. 98/7
Kieron Pollard402406.0071030
Daren Sammy3.502656.7880210
13.6 to GA Lamb, The middle stump has been knocked out of its peg and the puzzling thing is there was no reason why it should have happened! It was slightly slower one all right but jeez not enough to produce a lame dismissal like this. Lamb just seemed to sort of very lazily, very very lazily, poked at the delivery - perhaps he thought he would late cut the delivery- and just didn't connect. It seemed he just let it go ... sort of a shot you play in a video game where you are unsure and got struck while pressing the buttons and the ball just knocks your stumps out. 51/5
17.4 to H Masakadza, Done in by the slower off cutter. It was in the channel outside off, Masakadza went across the line for a big hit but gets a thin edge and Ramdin takes a neat catch. What's that cliche? Ah got it - "they are never easy"!. 74/6
19.2 to E Chigumbura, short in length, a touch slower, just outside off, Chigumbura goes for the flat-batted pull, the bottom-hand comes off the handle and the ball balloons off the edge to cover. 104/8
19.4 to SW Masakadza, Caught at long-on. He had to go for the big hit and he went and connected pretty well actually .. but caught at the ropes.. 104/9
19.5 to P Utseya, Five-for for Sammy! Oh what a day for him. He got this to cut back in from outside off stump and it rushed through the bat and pad gap to hit the stumps.. 105/10

Prosper Utseya401213.00160020
6.6 to ADS Fletcher, and that's another wicket for Zimbabwe, Fletcher goes for a duck, getting on one knee and sweeping the ball to deep square leg, can West Indies mess this up?. 24/2
Ray Price411814.50172010
5.6 to AB Barath, Price gets the breakthrough. It drifted in from round the stumps, lands on the middle stump line, puff of dust goes up, grips the surface and turns ... Barath was down the track, looking for the big swing to the on side but couldn't get bat to ball and the off stump has been pegged back. 21/1
Graeme Cremer401132.75150010
8.2 to KA Pollard, Pollard has been sent back to the hut. What a game this is proving to be. Both sides trying to out do each other in self destruction. Puzzling but immense fun if you are an neutral! It was the flighted delivery on the off stump line, Pollard stretched out to play a big lofted drive but beaten by the dip and missed it completely. The ball went on straight to take out the off stump. 32/3
8.3 to DM Bravo, OMG! . Cremer gets two in two. Chanderpaul stands alone. What's going on?! Lil Bravo goes for a big pull shot first ball but it keeps a touch low and skids on to hit him in the line of off stump. It might have missed off, it might have hit the outside half of the off stump.. 32/4
16.6 to DJG Sammy, Surely, Zimbabwe have sewed this game now? Sammy moves down the track, tries to play for the turn but this one slides back in, goes through the bat and pad gap and hits the stumps. The pitch has turned, yes it has been a touch slow and stopped on the batsmen but the skill levels have been poor.. 65/7
Greg Lamb401423.50130020
11.1 to S Chanderpaul, Cremer, who dropped Chanders earlier, can breathe easy now. Chanderpaul is trapped in front. Lamb got this to go almost straight with the arm from round the stumps. Chanders was playing for the turn and pushed well outside the line and was hit in front of the off stump. What a big wicket this. West Indies slid deeper into trouble.. 39/5
15.2 to DR Smith, Raise a toast to Zimbabwe! They are doing this in style. What a game. This one turns on the middle and leg line, Smith tries to sweep it finer but the ball goes off the edge to left of midwicket where Utseya takes a fine tumbling catch. And then they were 4. What a unbelievable state of affairs.. 57/6
