Tinashe Panyangara716809.71217411
Tendai Chatara907728.55288332
45.2 to MR Marsh, the stand ends at a blistering 109 off 54 as Marsh fails to clear long on with this slower length ball. 287/4
47.4 to GJ Maxwell, does not matter what the format is, Maxwell loves the 90s, he cranked up for another six, this was pitched up and he connected too, but sent it soaring high up, long off does superbly to judge it and goes down with the take. 317/6
John Nyumbu806418.00234400
29.3 to AJ Finch, Finch has smoked this straight to backward square leg, this was set to disappear too, overpitched, on the pads, Finch bent for the sweep, and powered it to the fielder. 145/2
Sean Williams1015915.90303210
36.2 to GJ Bailey, Utseya has done superbly to hold on to this catch, Bailey had charged out inside the line and had a heave, sliced it behind point, from where Utseya set after it, Nyumbu tore in from short third man, it wasn't a head-on collision, but they did dash into each other, Utseya seems to have hurt himself. 178/3
Elton Chigumbura603315.50213100
18.3 to BJ Haddin, uh oh, unfortunate way to go, Haddin defends this short of a length ball, it drops onto the pitch, bounces and as it comes down, it disodges the leg bail. 98/1

Mitchell Johnson62711.16321000
18.3 to BRM Taylor, gone! This one was on a similar length to the previous ball, but it bounced a lot more, and he pushed at it without really looking to do anything in particular. It was halfway uppercut, halfway dab, and the ball bounced out of Finch's upraised hands at first slip before he recovered to cling on, tumbling all the way. 83/3
Mitchell Starc612323.83260140
1.2 to TMK Mawoyo, given straightaway! Starc strikes on his second ball. He pitched it right on middle stump on length and Mawoyo was struck on the front pad by the delivery that came in slightly as he was stuck to his crease. 1/1
36.6 to T Panyangara, what a yorker, the stumps go flying! It was coming in sharply with the angle, Panyangara tried to defend but it went right through him and sent the middle and leg stumps for a walk. 144/8
Kane Richardson522805.60205020
Mitchell Marsh501513.00211000
22.1 to SC Williams, strikes first ball of the new spell! It was angling away from Williams from back of length and he pushed it off the back foot straight to cover for an easy catch as if it was a fielding drill. Five down now Zimbabwe. 88/5
Nathan Lyon714226.00206000
13.6 to Sikandar Raza, Lyon's broken the stand with a soft dismissal! He pitched it up on off and Raza went down on a knee to sweep it straight to backward square leg in the circle to Mitchell Marsh. Raza drops his head in disappointment but he has to walk back after a useful stand. 64/2
29.3 to R Mutumbami, loud appeal for lbw and it's given! Mutumbami shuffled across towards off, the ball pitched on off and turned in to hit him in front of the stumps and the finger went up. 117/6
James Faulkner601913.16211000
21.1 to E Chigumbura, the short ball has worked! Faulkner banged it in as Chigumbura pulled but only managed a leading edge high in the air, Haddin went back a few steps and pouched it in his gloves. 86/4
Steven Smith4.301633.55171000
33.3 to H Masakadza, gone this time! He was coming down the track too often and this time the turn beat him past the slog he tried and was way down the track when Haddin stumped him. 138/7
37.4 to P Utseya, he hands a simple catch to mid-on from outside off! It turned away again from the batsman, Utseya went back to pull it but failed to middle it and handed an easy one to Starc at mid-on. 144/9
39.3 to J Nyumbu, it's all over now, Smith takes three! It was pitched up on middle and leg, Nyumbu went for a slog and a leading edge ballooned to point for an easy catch to end the match. 152/10
