Sibanda holds onto a simple catch, early strike by Zimbabwe. Vijay c Sibanda b 1(9)

4

to Rayudu, FOUR, poor ball from , he slips one onto Rayudu's pads, easy pickings for the batsman as he gets going with a clip past the keeper, the ball races away to the fence in a hurry

4

6

to Binny, SIX, beautiful use of the feet. He dances down the wicket, meets the pitch of the ball and lofts it handsomely over mid-on, he got enough wood as the ball cleared the fence with ease

4

Williams to Rayudu, FOUR, Williams once again drops it short and pays the price. Rayudu is quick to rock back and pull it to the vacant deep mid-wicket region

to Binny, FOUR, misses the yorker and he has been put away, Binny uses the depth of the crease, goes right back and lofts it over extra cover, long-off had no chance of stopping that

6

to Binny, SIX, mighty hit! Full toss and is dealt with, Binny goes deep in the crease, goes down on his knee and hammers it over long-on, he got plenty of height and the required distance as well

4

to Binny, FOUR, another full toss and Binny helps himself to another boundary, it was at a nice height as well, he heaves it towards the cow corner fence, it almost went the distance. That also brings up the 150-run stand

W

Tiripano to Binny, out Caught by Mutumbami!! The partnership comes to an end. A fine innings that from Binny. He walks off to an ovation.

He was not in position to play the shot, lost his shape completely. Binny c Mutumbami b Tiripano 77(76) [4s-6 6s-2]

4

to Rayudu, FOUR, another full toss from , he has dished out quite a few today, Rayudu slices it up and over backward point, collects four more and registers his highest ODI score
