Madziva to Patel, OUT, gone. Straight to long-off. just to add to the tension and drama. Overpitched outside off, quite a terrible delivery, but Axar just cannot get under that enough. Smashes it straight to long-off. Enough power but not enough elevation

AR Patel c sub (WP Masakadza) b Madziva 18 (9b 1x4 2x6) SR: 200.00

Muzarabani to Pandey, OUT, gone. Muzarabani salutes. He has Pandey. Full on off, right in the slot for Pandey's big hit but the number of twos have probably fatigued Pandey who plays a tired shot. Gets to the ball late, in his attempted slog, and the ball squirts off the outside half, skied up for deep cover to come in and take

MK Pandey c Tiripano b Muzarabani 48 (35b 1x4 3x6) SR: 137.14

Muzarabani to Jadhav, OUT, bowled im. A naughty slog across the line and Jadhav chops on. Full and wide outside off, Jadhav walks across and looks to mow over midwicket but gets a thick inside edge which removes off stump

KM Jadhav b Muzarabani 19 (13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 146.15

Chibhabha to Mandeep Singh, OUT, taken. Zimbabwe have another. Full delivery on middle, Mandeep backs away and hits the ball beautifully with a straight bat. But he wanted to go more over cover but hits it to long-off, who runs in and takes a quality grab, diving low in front of him. Had to cover significant ground to get to the opportunity

Mandeep Singh c Mutombodzi b Chibhabha 31 (27b 5x4 0x6) SR: 114.81

Chibhabha to Rayudu, OUT, gone. A wild swing from Rayudu and he is out. Full on off, just keeping it there. Rayudu shimmies down and has a heave at it, across the line. The ball goes under the cross bat and uproots off stump. Vital wicket for Zimbabwe after a few loose overs

AT Rayudu b Chibhabha 19 (16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 118.75

Tiripano to Rahul, OUT, bowled im first ball. A golden duck for Rahul in his debut. Good length delivery outside off, a hint of away movement. Rahul looks to dab the ball to third man and plays it late. But the ball hits the inside edge and then finds the off stump. What a start for Zimbabwe.

KL Rahul b Tiripano 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
