Tendai Chatara805607.00235200
John Nyumbu1013013.00402020
3.1 to AJ Finch, oh, he's bowled'im! Nyumbu pitches it outside off on length, not much flight there, and it spun in, finch played for more turn and was beaten. He didn't use his feet much and was probably caught in two minds. And Nyumbu broke into a jig again!. 11/1
Prosper Utseya1004524.50301110
11.3 to PJ Hughes, he's been done by the spin and the sweep doesn't work this time! It was flighted on length just outside off, Hughes swept against the turn and an edge flew back towards slip where Nyumbu took it towards his right. He looked uneasy against the spinners right from the start. 38/2
42.3 to JP Faulkner, wicket falls straightaway! It pitched on length outside off and Faulkner went back to run it around third man but managed a thick outside edge and Nyumbu took a good low catch going down to his right. 147/6
Donald Tiripano613425.66161200
28.5 to MR Marsh, not the pitch to be driving throuh the line and Marsh learns it the hard way. He'd refrained from doing that against the spinners but couldn't replicate that with a little more pace on the ball. It was the cross-seamer, pitched full and a shade outside off, stopped on the pitch just enough to skew his timing and short cover makes a smart grab. 97/5
49.4 to BJ Haddin, he holes out this time! It was pitched up again around leg stump and he lofted it down to long-on for an easy catch. But he did his job for that crucial knock of 49. 202/9
Sean Williams1022122.10460100
12.2 to GJ Bailey, and another, and what a beauty from Williams this time! Bailey stood outside the leg stump and exposed the stumps for the delivery that drifted in with the angle but spun enough to beat the outside edge as Bailey played inside the line off the backfoot. The Zimbabwe spinners are putting their team on top as Bailey looked back in disbelief seeing that ball turn. 39/3
43.2 to MA Starc, this time it's gone through! Pitched on length outside off and turned it in, Starc played for a bit of turn in an attempt to push it down but left a wide gap between bat and pad and the ball found that big enough to go through and hit the stumps. 150/7
Malcolm Waller602113.50201000
16.6 to GJ Maxwell, knocked him this time, Maxwell also gone! Maxwell also plays inside the line for this ball that pitched outside off and came in, but it didn't come in that much and enough to hit the top of off stump as he looked to push it down the ground by closing the face of the bat. 57/4

Mitchell Starc1034124.10433140
22.2 to H Masakadza, off stump toppled! He's been beaten for pace! This was quick, it was on target, with a hint of nip back in. Masakadza's defence is loose as his bat leads far past his body and is cut in half. 100/3
38.2 to DT Tiripano, he chops it on to his middle stump! Chiggy's trusted Tiripano's batting but he gets cramped by the angle from round the wicket, looks to defend off the back foot but gets a thick inside edge. 156/7

Nathan Lyon1014444.40407020
11.2 to Sikandar Raza, spinner gets a wicket, who else? It turned in sharply from outside off, Raza went back to cut and the bounce got a thick outside edge for an easy catch to first slip. 42/1
13.3 to TMK Mawoyo, gets him this time! The ball comes in from outside off, Mawoyo doesn't have much room but he wants to cut it and gets an inside edge onto the off stump. Lyon gets another. 44/2
23.3 to BRM Taylor, you little beauty! He's got through Taylor and off stump gets a thwack again! Gorgeous loop on the ball which lured Taylor as far forward as he could, but then it dipped on him and sneaks between bat and pad as he goes for a flick. He was so off balance that he needed to pull one hand off the bat to steady himself on the pitch. 102/4
25.2 to SC Williams, what a catch! Clarke, take a bow! That was tossed up on off stump which elicits a little more bounce to ruin Williams' reverse sweep. It takes the glove, flicks the keeper's gloves and Clarke leaps to his right and clings on to a stunner over his head. 106/5
Aaron Finch201909.5042100
Glenn Maxwell804115.12292020
33.5 to MN Waller, throws his head back in agony as he he gifts his wicket away! That was slower again from Maxwell, tossed up outside off. He tried to work it with the turn towards midwicket, but the ball grips enough to make him lob a simple catch back. 142/6
