    8.1 important strike! Madhevere has chipped it back to the bowler. Was looking to hit it with the spin to long-off but got it off the inner part of the bat. Simple catch to break a big stand 74/2
    1.5 stunner from Soumya! Deceived by the slower one as he looks to hoick this into the leg side, the bottom hand comes off the bat grip as he makes contact. The ball is high and it's an excellent catch by the fielding running in from deep midwicket. Covered a good 20 yards, put in a dive forward and pouched it nice and clean 10/1
    10.1 is there a run-out at the bowler's end? Yes, Chakabva is short of his crease. A freakish wicket for Zimbabwe here, and the aggressive-looking batter is gone. He went for the ramp to this fullish ball on middle and off, but the ball took his pad on the way to the keeper, as the batters set off for a run. But that was excellent match awareness by Nurul to notice the batters attempting a run, as he threw it bang on the stumps at the bowler's end though he couldn't go for the catch while the ball was in the air toward him 91/3
    14.1 the off stump is uprooted! Very full length on off, and he clears his front leg to try and heave that to the leg side. But the ball is too full for that shot, and he's beaten comfortably enough to be cleaned up by the length and the pace of the bowler. An attacking innings comes to an end 119/6
    10.5 and the captain has to depart without scoring. Goes for the deft touch toward third man again, but gets an outside edge behind to Nurul. That was a good length ball on middle and off, and again it was too close to cut while Raza played from his crease. He pays the price for that, and has to depart. Zimbabwe lose two in the over 92/4
    13.2 traps him leg before. Full delivery on middle and leg, and continues to angle in with the batter going for the flick and his front leg out of the way. The ball strikes his back pad as he is beaten by the movement into him, and Soumya has a wicket after convincing the umpire 111/5
    17.5 a stunning catch by long-on! That looked unbelievable for a moment. Soft signal is out, as the umpire goes upstairs. The momentum meant the fielder was falling on the ground, and that is called a clear catch. The substitute fielder Shamim sprinted to his left, as Burl creamed this hit off a ball in the slot on off by stepping across and going low. That was hit very forcefully - much like they were heaved across the line in the third ODI - but an outstanding take means he can't get one away and has to depart while trying to push the scoring 143/8
    17.2 bowled him! Goes for the yorker this time and though this was again bowled pretty wide of off, Jongwe went for a scoop over the keeper only to get it from the inside half of the bat and on to the leg stump. A useful cameo comes to an end 140/7
    not out
    18.2 yorked him! This would have been very difficult to negotiate even for a top-order batter, let alone a tailender. Much quicker on middle, and slanting in as well. Ngarava's back leg was stuck deep in the crease, as he cleared his front leg and there was no scope to get any bat on that 144/9
    18.6 knocked him over this time! Slower delivery on a good length on leg stump, and Muzarabani tried to hoick that toward deep midwicket again by taking his front leg out of the way. But he's beaten by the lack of pace, with the ball looking like having got stuck in the surface too 152/10
