Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
19.5SIXCusack to Chigumbura, SIX, again misses the length and again perishes. He's a powerful hitter is Chigumbura, waits for the ball and smashes it high over long-off again. These are handy runs for Zimbabwe162/5
19.2SIXCusack to Chigumbura, SIX, can't bowl length at this stage. Full outside off stump, Chigumbura lofts it handsomely over long-off and it sails over the boundary line154/5
17.5SIXCusack to Maruma, SIX, he's connected that really well and it's gone all the way. The slower delivery goes very short, Maruma rocks back and muscles the pull really hard, the ball goes flat over deep square leg139/5
17OUTDockrell to Brendan Taylor, out Caught by Ed Joyce!! Fantastic over from Dockrell, he put pressure on the batsmen by keeping it tight and he gets a big wicket. Flighted delivery on the off stump, Taylor makes room and tries to go inside-out, lofts it high in the air and the man at sweeper cover runs to his right to take a fine catch. Anyway, Taylor has done his job, top knock that. Brendan Taylor c Ed Joyce b Dockrell 59(46) [4s-6 6s-2]131/5
15.5FOURK O'Brien to Brendan Taylor, FOUR, swings it across the line and the man at long-on can't stop the ball. He ran to his right but the ball bounced badly for him to make a brave attempt. The length was short and Taylor hammered that very well128/4
15.4FOURK O'Brien to Brendan Taylor, FOUR, another slower ball and this time Taylor gently lofts it over the infield it beats long-on and long-off to perfection124/4
