Zimbabwe: 111-3 (rr 6.53)

16.6
One Run
Ajmal to Maruma. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Shehzad. The crowd are getting restless with Maruma, who doesn't seem to want to open his arms. Ajmal bowls tight lines and they just can't get him away. Heave Ho time!

15.6
Four Runs
FOUR! Tanvir to Taylor. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Top shot to finish the over. Taylor guides it well over the keepers head to keep his side in the game. 58 off 4 overs is a big ask from here fireworks required.

No Runs
Ajmal to Maruma. Off break length ball, off stump down the track pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ajmal. The task getting more difficult by the over for the home side. With Ajmal having 2 overs left it is difficult to see Zimbabwe getting the runs.

OUT! L.B.W. Hafeez to Williams. Off break length ball, middle stump no foot movement reverse sweeping, hit pad. That looks absolutely plum. Hafeez gets the ball to straighten off middle and when Williams misses the reverse sweep its clearly out. Well bowled.

12.2
Wicket
OUT! Bowled. Afridi to Sibanda. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot working, missed. The quicker flatter ball is a bit too quick for Sibanda, who goes plays the shot too late. Important wicket for Pakistan, Zimbabwe struggling.

12.1
One Run
Afridi to Taylor. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Ajmal.

Zimbabwe: 71-1 (rr 6.45)

10.6
No Runs
Afridi to Sibanda. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to slips for no runs, fielded by Shehzad. Zimbabwe don't look to be forcing the issue enough here, though they are in with a shout with the amount of wickets in hand.

Bowler: Anwar Ali
Zimbabwe: 64-1 (rr 6.40)

9.6
No Runs
Ali to Sibanda. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ali. So at halfway the Zimbabweans have stalled a little on 64-1. They still require 98 to win off the last 10. One of both of these batsmen have to start having a go at the bowling to give them a chance of chasing this target.

9.5
One Run
Ali to Taylor. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Jamshed.

9.4
Two Runs
Ali to Taylor. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control to third man for 2 runs, run save by Ajmal. Brilliant fielding from Ajmal who leeps over the boundary one handed to drag the ball inside the rope. Saves 2, great effort.

9.3
No Runs
Ali to Taylor. Yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Maqsood.

9.2

8.6
One Run
Afridi to Sibanda. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Jamshed. The run-rate is slowing here. You get the feeling Zimbabwe need a couple of good overs to give them the confidence to chase this down.

8.5
One Run
Afridi to Taylor. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Jamshed.

7.5
Wicket
OUT! L.B.W. Ali to Masakadza. Length ball, off stump no foot movement pulling, hit pad. A poor shot there from Masakadza. He misjudges the lenght and has a lack of foot movement with that shot, and is trapped plumb in front. Big wicket for Pakistan.

7.4
No Runs
Ali to Masakadza. Half volley, middle stump no foot movement working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Hafeez.

7.3
One Run

Zimbabwe: 48-0 (rr 6.86)

6.6
No Runs
Irfan to Masakadza. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Irfan. The batsmen aren't looking to get to far ahead of themselves here. They still appear to be setting the base for the lower order, and the plan is working, plenty of wickets still in hand to chase these down.

6.5
One Run
Irfan to Sibanda. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Tanvir.

5.6
One Run
Ajmal to Masakadza. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Irfan. So the end of the powerplay and a good over to finish it. The Zimbabwe batsmen playing Ajmal very cautiously and they will be very greatful for the 5 wides he generously provided in that over.

4.4
Bye
Irfan to Sibanda. Short, middle stump swayed away, to third man for no runs. Irfans height proving his own downfall there. A well directed bouncer misses Sibanda's nose by inches, though the bounce is too much for the keeper and the ball runs away for 4 byes.

4.3
No Runs
Irfan to Sibanda. Short, off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

4.2

3.6
No Runs
Ali to Masakadza. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed. Expensive start from Ali, going for 9 from his first over. Zimbabwe looking very positive at the moment.

3.5
Four Runs
FOUR! Ali to Masakadza. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Unbelievable timing there. He simply guided that through the gap between midwicket and mid-on. Great stuff.

Ali to Masakadza. Short, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Jamshed.

3.3

2.3
No Runs
Tanvir to Sibanda. Yorker, middle stump no foot movement defending, to silly mid on for no runs. Masakadza nearly caught napping there. Sibanda digs out a yorker and the ball trickles back towards the bowlers stumps. Tanvir is millimetres away from getting a touch on the ball, and Masakadza is half way down the track. Lucky.

2.2
No Runs
Tanvir to Sibanda. Length ball, to leg on the back foot Steer, to backward point for no runs, shy attempt by Shehzad.

Zimbabwe: 16-0 (rr 8.00)

1.6
No Runs
Irfan to Masakadza. Back of a length, off stump no foot movement, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed. Solid start then for Zimbabwe, who will be looking to carry through this momentum

1.5
Four Runs
FOUR! Irfan to Masakadza. Full toss, to leg no foot movement driving, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. He seemed slightly done for pace there, though managed to get enough on it and after passing the in field it raced away for 4.

1.4
Four Runs
FOUR! Irfan to Masakadza. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. The first boundary for the hosts. Masakadza disects the field and it has just enough on it to get over the boundary.

No Runs
Tanvir to Sibanda. Out-swinging back of a length, to leg on the back foot driving, inside edge to short fine leg for no runs, fielded by Irfan. A good amount of away swing for Tanvir to work with. Zimbabwe will be happy with the first overs work.

19.6
No Runs
Chatara to Ali. Length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Taylor. Good finish from Pakistan there. They will be happy with 161 after the slow start. Ahmed Shehzad led the way with a composed 70 off 50 balls, and some lusty blows towards the end from Maqsood and Afridi pushed them to the par score. It will be interesting to see what the Zimbabwe batsmen make of this pitch.

19.5

19.4

18.6
Two Runs
Vitori to Ali. Half volley, middle stump no foot movement flick, to deep square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Williams. Ali scampers back for the second to keep Afridi on strike. A better throw and there was a good chance of a run out.

18.5
One Run
Vitori to Afridi. Yorker, to leg on the front foot driving, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Masakadza. 2 solid yorkers in a row from Vitori. Really good death bowling.

Catch
OUT! Caught. Masakadza to Shehzad. Slower ball short, outside off stump no foot movement pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, fielded by Waller. A good knock comes to an end. The slower ball forces him to mistime the pull and the ball goes straight down Waller's throat at long-on. Waller throws the ball up and catches it again in case his foot goes behind the line, but replays show he never leaves the field.

News from the middle is that Zimbabwe have won the toss and will bowl on what looks to be a good batting track. They will be without seam bowler Kyle Jarvis who has retired from International cricket and go into the game looking to recover from their series whitewash against India. Pakistan have brought a strong side over and will look to continue their form following a strong series in the West Indies. Sohaib Maqsoob will also make his debut for the visitors. Play is due to start at 12:30GMT
