    2.5 excellent change in pace and that accounts for Chamu. Slower delivery outside off, full. Chamu steps out but is beaten by that variation. He is through his heave way too early, and the ball lobs up off the toe-end. Rayudu, at mid-on, backtracks and takes a superb catch running back, eyes peeled on the ball 14/1
    4.2 cleaned im up. Full on middle and leg, a hint of inward movement. Masakadza plays an awful across-the-line mow and misses it completely. The middle stump is uprooted. Looked to belt that too hard, played the line, didn't account for swing 26/2
    14.4 change in pace and gone. Another slower delivery outside off, Moor has tried to hit all of his previous 10 deliveries out of the ground, he tries again. But the ball bounces extra and takes a leading edge, which spoons up for Axar to take at point 75/6
    4.5 gone. Another one goes. Zimbabwe tottering now. Pushed wider outside off from Sran on a fullish length, Raza seems happy with the width and guides the ball towards third man. But there is a well-positioned gully who dives and takes a good catch, low in front of him 28/3
    4.6 another one for Sran. What a debut this is. Good length on off, the ball bouncing extra. Mutombodzi misses a flick and the ball thuds into his pads, excessively high. Ump Tiffin raises the finger. Hmm, looked very high. Another contentious decision from Russell Tiffin. Pitched outside leg as well, not a good decision. 28/4
    11.1 and gone. Waller falls. Runs to the pitch of the slow, flat delivery. Doesn't quite get there but Waller still tries to loft the ball over cover. The ball spins a touch and moves away, and the ball skews off the outside half towards extra cover who dives to his right and takes a quality catch, near his head 57/5
    16.1 cleaned up. Another one for Bumrah, and the big wicket. Good length, swerving back in sharply. Chigumbura tires to open his bat face to get a run to third man but the sharp movement is responsible for the ball going through a big gap between bat and pad. Middle stump is uprooted. Zimbabwe sinking fast 81/7
    19.2 out this time. Back of a length outside off, Cremer backs away again, sees the opportunity to go over mid-off but squeezes the ball off the outside half. Badly miscued, easy catch to cover 91/9
    16.4 these stumps are getting smashed. Quite full on off, fast. Madziva runs to the pitch and looks to dab one into the off side, but the ball goes through bat and pad. Off stump goes for a walk this time. 83/8
