Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Vusi Sibanda, 6.6 ov), 2-59 (Hamilton Masakadza, 20.3 ov), 3-100 (Tino Mawoyo, 30.5 ov), 4-110 (Brendan Taylor, 35.6 ov), 5-135 (Malcolm Waller, 44.3 ov), 6-158 (Craig Ervine, 54.1 ov), 7-196 (Graeme Cremer, 72.5 ov), 8-196 (Regis Chakabva, 73.3 ov), 9-197 (Kyle Jarvis, 74.5 ov), 10-211 (Tendai Chatara, 76.4 ov)
6.6 to V Sibanda, bowled him! The leg stump is flat on the ground. Sibanda played from his crease to a full ball and tried to play across the line. He missed and the ball tailed into leg stump and uprooted it. 17/1
20.3 to H Masakadza, caught at gully, and that is a lovely catch. So smooth from Samuels. The ball rose from short of a length on Masakadza, who stayed in his crease, tried to ride the bounce and defend. The ball got big on him and the outside edge flew low towards Samuels' left. He dived and plucked the catch with his left hand .... 59/2
35.6 to BRM Taylor, the stumps have been demolished! Gabriel's hardly got anything to move today but that one did. He bowled a full ball angling into middle stump, which made Taylor want to close the face of his bat and play the ball through midwicket. The ball began to shape away from the right-hander, though, and went past the closing face to clatter into off stump. Terrific ball. Out of the blue from Shannon. 110/4
30.5 to TMK Mawoyo, caught at bat pad! The half-centurion is gone. Shilingford gave the ball air and drew the batsman forward with his flight. The ball pitched, spun and bounced as Mawoyo came forward to defend. It hit the inside edge and went straight to Powell for a simple catch. The umpire checks if Shillingford had overstepped. He had not.. 100/3
44.3 to MN Waller, he's out somehow, either lbw or caught bat-pad. Or is he? Waller's asked for a review. I'm not yet certain how he was given out. Waller tried to sweep, moving across his stumps, and the ball seemed to hit the bottom edge, hit his pad, hit the keeper's pad and lob up to Sammy at leg slip for a simple catch. But I think he's been given lbw, at least that's what the review checked. If there was no bottom edge, the lbw is out too. So either way, Waller has to go, lbw it is. 135/5
73.3 to RW Chakabva, caught at bat pad, a sharp catch that was! Chakabva was drawn forward by the length and the turn into the right-hander forced the inside edge, which popped up to Powell. Both the members of the resistance are now gone .... 196/8
54.1 to CR Ervine, bowled him first ball! What a return to cricket after injury! Samuels went round the wicket and bowled a straight ball slowly at Ervine. He came forward to defend but left a large gap between bat and pad, the ball went straight through. He was playing for the offspin, but there wasn't any. 158/6
72.5 to AG Cremer, what a soft dismissal, the ball was short and outside off stump, just a bit of extra bounce and that was enough to be Cremer's undoing. He went back and tried to cut, the top edge looping to Bravo at point. the players will take a drinks break at the fall of the wicket. 196/7
74.5 to KM Jarvis, what a good catch this is, Powell's having a fine day at short leg. Jarvis went back and worked the ball in the air and straight to short leg. Powell was crouched and ready and snapped it up.. 197/9
76.4 to TL Chatara, it's over now, Samuels has a fourth wicket. Chatara attempted to slog the ball from outside off to the leg-side boundary and got a top edge that landed in Roach's hands at mid-off. Zimbabwe all out for 211 .... 211/10

Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Kieran Powell, 6.6 ov), 2-8 (Kemar Roach, 6.7 ov), 3-43 (Darren Bravo, 18.3 ov), 4-81 (Chris Gayle, 26.1 ov), 5-144 (Marlon Samuels, 40.4 ov), 6-151 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 44.2 ov), 7-257 (Daren Sammy, 68.1 ov), 8-268 (Shane Shillingford, 73.5 ov), 9-301 (Denesh Ramdin, 81.6 ov), 10-307 (Tino Best, 84.2 ov)
6.6 to KOA Powell, that looks adjacent and the umpire thinks so too! Powell has reviewed the lbw decision. Jarvis pitched on middle stump from over the wicket and swung the ball back into the left-hander. Powell was caught on the crease and played across the line. He was hit flush on the pad and that would have gone on to hit leg stump full on. That's a review gone for West Indies and Powell has to go.. 8/1
6.7 to KAJ Roach, that's the seventh ball of the over by the looks of it, and it's struck Roach plumb in front. A full delivery angling into the right-hander from over the wicket and shaping away late. Roach played back and was hit low on the back pad. That's flattening middle. Gone.. 8/2
18.3 to DM Bravo, that's gone! Jarvis takes three, the round-the-wicket angle works, angling in towards off, pitched on a length and Bravo flirted with that one, pushed at it, a thin edge straight to the keeper, could have left that alone as he had done with the ones before. 43/3
44.2 to S Chanderpaul, Zimbabwe are ahead here! Jarvis snaps four, Chanders was lured into playing the pull, short of a length outside off and Chanders tried to drag that towards midwicket, was looking to keep it down, got a thin under-edge and Chakabva did well behind the stumps, diving forward and to his right. 151/6
84.2 to TL Best, Jarvis picks up a five-for, pitched up and Best slices that one straight to Cremer at point. 307/10
26.1 to CH Gayle, that took off, Gayle is gone first ball after drinks! Surprised Gayle with the bounce there, that's his first Test wicket, short of a good length and that just spat off the pitch, extra bounce and Gayle is too late as he tries to get his hand out of the way, catches him on the glove and lobs up towards second slip, four down now. 81/4
81.6 to D Ramdin, edged and gone! Ramdin falls, in the channel outside off, good bounce after it landed on a good length, Ramdin rocked forward, got a thick edge as he pushed at it, edged it straight to second slip, the umpires want to double-check for a no-ball, it's clean. Ramdin falls for a half-century on his birthday, was the final ball of the over, was perhaps searching for a single. 301/9
40.4 to MN Samuels, Big wicket at the stroke of lunch! Masakadza has bowled a disciplined line outside off and Samuels, who had played him well for so long, couldn't resist the temptation to go for a drive, that was pitched up, was on a driving length but with some teasing away movement, Samuels reached forward to drive, got a thin edge and Chakabva took an easy one. 144/5
68.1 to DJG Sammy, Well, that dropped catch off Sammy in the previous over didn't cost much, Masakadza has struck, a touch fortunate still, short of a good length and Sammy, tried to stab that, dragged it back onto the off stump. 257/7
73.5 to S Shillingford, was it a matter of time? Tossed up on middle and Shillingford tries to clear the ropes there, tries to go straight but finds Jarvis at mid-on, an easy catch. 268/8

Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Tino Mawoyo, 7.1 ov), 2-26 (Hamilton Masakadza, 10.1 ov), 3-39 (Vusi Sibanda, 12.4 ov), 4-47 (Brendan Taylor, 14.6 ov), 5-47 (Ray Price, 15.4 ov), 6-58 (Malcolm Waller, 22.3 ov), 7-77 (Regis Chakabva, 30.3 ov), 8-97 (Graeme Cremer, 36.6 ov), 9-107 (Kyle Jarvis, 41.2 ov), 10-107 (Tendai Chatara, 41.4 ov)
15.4 to RW Price, West Indies look like they're going to wrap this up quickly, the Zimbabwe supporters in the crowd are shaking their heads, fired in straight on middle, too quick for Price who tries to drive through the line but is beaten by the pace, middle stump is knocked out of the ground. 47/5
7.1 to TMK Mawoyo, He's struck first ball, bowled at 136.7kmph, full and wide with some away swing, Mawoyo had looked determined so far and he went after that one, chased a wide ball, got a thick edge and Sammy snapped that one at second slip. 25/1
41.2 to KM Jarvis, edged and gone! Gabriel gets another one, short of a length and Jarvis sensed a chance there, tried to cut, got a thick edge and Ramdin took an easy one to his right. 107/9
41.4 to TL Chatara, Zimbabwe have been bowled out, it was only a matter of time after that first delivery, good length and straight, Chatara made room and just hung his bat out in the vain hope that it would make contact, it didn't. 107/10
10.1 to H Masakadza, Shillingford strikes first ball as well, good bounce for him, landed on the off and turned in, Masakadza played loosely at that one, offering leg slip a straightforward catch as he closed the face, went off the glove, was short. 26/2
12.4 to V Sibanda, leading edge and Zimbabwe are three down! Floating it on a good length on middle, it went on straight, Sibanda played for the spin, trying to close the face, got a leading edge and offered a straightforward catch to Shillingford. 39/3
14.6 to BRM Taylor, that's gone, Taylor's fallen in the first over, you sensed something would happen given the way the over panned out, turns in from a good length outside off, gets forward to defend, it turns in, he gets an inside edge onto the pads and offers a simple catch to short leg. 47/4
22.3 to MN Waller, yet another wicket for Shillingford, and yet another Zimbabwe batsman caught at short leg, really these are not deliveries specialist Test batsmen should be getting out to, there is bounce, but he's just popped it in front of short leg, who's dived forward to complete the catch, he's standing in the crease, the ball has bounced into him, and he's made no attempt to get the bat out of the way, inside edge onto thigh pad and to the fielder. 58/6
30.3 to RW Chakabva, Shillingford takes a five-for! He's delighted, that went on straight and Chakabva was clueless about that one, flighted on the off and middle stump and Chakabva played inside the line, hoping for it to turn, but it didn't, it went on straight, beat the bat and crashed into the stumps. 77/7
36.6 to AG Cremer, that's a snorter, what a ball, lethal bounce, short of a good length and it just spat off the pitch, went on straight and Cremer didn't have a clue, tried to play it off the back foot, got a thin edge and Ramdin took a sharp catch behind the stumps, not much Cremer could have done about that. 97/8
