to Mire, FOUR, cracking shot. first boundary of Zimbabwe's innings. A poor delivery and that gets the treatment it deserved. Lots of width on offer on this short ball outside off, Mire fiercely cuts it wide of point

4

Sharif to H Masakadza, FOUR, what a shot to get off the mark. Beautifully done. Masakadza comes forward and caresses the drive through the covers. First boundary for Masakadza

4

Sharif to H Masakadza, FOUR, half-hearted short ball and Masakadza accepts the gift gleefully. Stands tall, gets into a strong position and smacks the pull in front of square

6

Sharif to H Masakadza, SIX, first six in this innings. No surprises as it comes off the bat of Masakadza. Length ball right in the slot for Masakadza to swing it. He decides to go downtown and clubs it over the bowler's head. The ball flies over the sightscreen. A mammoth hit

4

to H Masakadza, FOUR, sloppy work. Masakadza drives down the ground and placed it well wide of thew bowler. Mid-on should have stopped that, makes a mess of it and allows the ball to go past the boundary rope

4

Sharif to H Masakadza, FOUR, wow! This is a brilliant shot from Zimbabwe's most experienced player. Gets down on one knee and employs the slog sweep. One bounce and over the deep backward square leg fence

6

to H Masakadza, SIX, a mighty hit. Picks the short delivery early and hammers it over mid-wicket for a massive six

W

to Mire, out H Masakadza Run Out!! A mix-up from the duo gives Scotland their first breakthrough. Mire pushes it to the on-side and sets off for a quick single.

W

de Lange to Sean Williams, out Raza Run Out!! This is suicidal running from the pair. Therer was no run there after Williams's drive went to backward point off the outside part of the bat.

W

de Lange to Cremer, out Lbw!! Two in the over for de Lange. It's the Zimbabwe skipper that has to make his long walk back to the pavillion. Cremer misses a straight delivery and is hit dead in front. An easy decision for the umpire, who has his finger up in a flash. Cremer lbw b de Lange 1(3)

6

de Lange to Waller, SIX, and he proves why he kept the strike with this blow. Takes the front leg out of his way and clubbers it over long-on for a maximum

W

de Lange to Waller, out Caught by Chris Sole!! Oh! An anti-climax. Waller perishes and misses his century by eight runs. But, what a knock he has played. Take a bow, Malcolm Waller. He dances down and slogs wildly. The ball looked like clearing the rope. But, Sole, at deep square leg, takes a fine catch. Waller doesn't want to leave. He gets a standing ovation from the crowd. Replays suggest that he made tact with the rope. The umpire doesn't spot it though. Waller c Chris Sole b de Lange 92(62) [4s-10 6s-5]

W

Sharif to Chatara, out Caught by Chris Sole!! That's gone miles up in the air and it has been taken. Scotland win by 26 runs and go 1-0 up in the 2-match series.

6

to Coetzer, SIX, even better! Fullish ball, just an extension of the on-drive. Coetzer lofts it over mid-on and makes excellent connection. The ball has enough wings to clear the rope
