All|Overs 1-50
6

to Mire, SIX, there you go! Nine runs from the opening over. That's a massive hit from Mire. He bludgeons this length ball over long-on. The ball settles on the roof

4

to Mire, FOUR, cheeky and effective. Premeditated as well. How well has he connected! Gets low and easily scoops it fine. Runs away into the fine leg fence

4

to H Masakadza, FOUR, too straight and Masakadza punishes . Clips this length ball over mid-wicket and the ball reaches the fence in a hurry

4

to Mire, FOUR, that's a powerful shot. Mire buries low and sweeps hard. Finds the gap through the on-side, and the ball bullets away

4

to H Masakadza, FOUR, four more. Eleven runs from the over as Masakadza wallops this ball down the ground. No chance for the bowler to stop that

W

Sole to Mire, out Caught by Matthew Cross!! The bowling change has done the trick. A nothing ball and Mire perishes. It was short ball going down leg. Mire goes hard on his pull and gloves it to the keeper. Mire c Matthew Cross b Sole 17(15) [4s-2 6s-1]

W

Sole to H Masakadza, out Caught by Berrington!! Masakadza gifts his wicket away. Sees the width and rightly goes for the cut shot. But, doesn't bother to keep it down and pays the price. Hits it straight to the man at point. H Masakadza c Berrington b Sole 12(17) [4s-2]

4

to Sean Williams, FOUR, shot! Overpitched and Williams takes full toll. Drills it down the ground. No chance for to stop that

W

Sole to Sean Williams, out Caught by Berrington!! This is a big wicket for Scotland. Williams scored a fifty in the previous match. Once again, not a great ball. Short and wide outside off, Williams goes hard on his cut and hits it towards point. Berrington jumps and takes a good catch. Sean Williams c Berrington b Sole 6(11) [4s-1]

4

to Craig Ervine, FOUR, short ball, Ervine swivels and pulls backward of square leg. In the gap and the ball reaches the fence in a hurry

4

de Lange to Craig Ervine, FOUR

4

to Raza, FOUR, good shot! Another bad ball from . Boiwls a freebie - short and wide outside off, Raza waits to cut it expertly wide of point. No chance for third man

4

to Raza, FOUR, 12 runs from the over. Dibbly-dobbly delivery outside off, Raza cuts and cuts hard. Similar to his previous boundary

4

to Raza, FOUR, third boundary in eight balls for Raza. Picks the length of this short ball early, gets into a good position and smacks it away with a pull in front of square

4

to Craig Ervine, FOUR, too straight, too full. Down leg and gleefully flicked away into the fence behind square

W

to Craig Ervine, out Bowled!! Some respite. The contest that was well placed at lunch seemed to have run away. arrests it - for the moment. Dishes out a perfect outswinger, and Ervine commits to his driving blade. Tails away enough to send the off-pole on a walk. Craig Ervine b 30(48) [4s-3]

4

to Raza, FOUR, takes matters through the covers. With utmost elegance. A leather hunt this with a spanking through the off-side

4

to Raza, FOUR, the flashy blade. Swings hard and slams it into the cover fence on the up. Doesn't even bother keeping it down as the ball drops just short of the fence on the full

4

to Raza, FOUR, as juicy as a full toss could get. An angry charge down as he whacks it across the line. In the gap for a change

OT

Sole to Raza, 3 runs, here's the half-ton. What ideally should have been just a single ends up leaking a couple more. Both batsmen find themselves stuck half way down the pitch in confusion as the fielder from square leg cleans up the glance and has a wild shy at the stumps

4

Sole to Ryan Burl, FOUR, too wide. Free runs these. A slash in cutting it through point. Doing it quickly now

4

to Raza, FOUR, that's that. Stamps and seals it off in style. On top of a short ball in hammering it away with a cross batted mow. The mid-wicket bears the brunt

4

to Coetzer, FOUR, first boundary of the day and it's off the bat of the skipper. On the pads and Coetzer whips it away through mid-wicket

6

to Coetzer, SIX, shot! bowls a fullish ball that is right in the slot for Coetzer to smack it over mid-on. Superb connection and the ball goes all the way into the fence

4

to Coetzer, FOUR, once again on the pads and Coetzer punishes . He powerfully clips it between mid-wicket and mid-on

4

to Coetzer, FOUR, short ball, Coetzer gets into a good posotion and pulls it perpendicular to the pitch. Good start for the hosts

4

to Coetzer, FOUR, not off the middle of the bat, but Coetzer collects a boundary as he decides to drive this straight over the bowler's head

W

Williams to Matthew Cross, out Bowled!! Williams strikes. The dot balls crerated the pressure and Cross has to take the long walk back to the dressing room. Cross moves leg-side to make room and looks to force it through the off-side. Misses and the ball crashes onto the stumps. Matthew Cross b Williams 3(13)

4

to Coetzer, FOUR, ah! This one jagged in and surprises Coetzer, who just about brings his bat down. Gets an inside edge that misses the stumps and runs away into the fine leg fence

4

to MacLeod, FOUR, width on offer and MacLeod goes after it with a powerful stroke. But, hits it straight to point, who makes a mess of it. won't be happy with that effort

4

Williams to Coetzer, FOUR, slightly short and Coetzer latches onto it. He waits on the back foot and spanks it through the covers

OT

to Coetzer, 1 run, dinked down to long-on and that brings up Coetzer's eighth ODI fifty. His purple patch in the 50-over format continues. He got a century in the previous game. Can he convert this into another one? He raises his bat and gets an applause from the crowd

4

to MacLeod, FOUR, sloppy. MacLeod dabs this length ball outside off. The third man fielder makes a mess of it and allows it to go past the boundary rope

D

to MacLeod, 1 run, dropped! Mire is the culprit. MacLeod flicks uppishly and almost paid the price. Mire, at mid-wicket dives, but can't clutch onto it

4

to MacLeod, FOUR, qwell directed bouncer, MacLeod goes for the pull. Gets a top edge that flies over the keeper's head

4

to Coetzer, FOUR, short and wide, Coetzer rocks back and scythes it well in front of square on the off-side

4

to MacLeod, FOUR, Sees the width outside off and fiercely cuts it wide of point. The boundary brings up Scotland's 100

4

to MacLeod, FOUR, good shot. Buries low and plays the sweep shot superbly. Places it behind square on the on-side and collects a boundary

W

to Coetzer, out Stumped!! A wicket totally against the run of play. The Zimbabwean skipper gets rid of his counterpart. This is a big wicket. Coetzer steps out of his crease and looks to whip it through the mid-wicket region. He attempted to play against the spin and failed to connect. Easy work for the man with the gloves behind the sticks. Coetzer st Moor b 61(60) [4s-7 6s-1]

4

to MacLeod, FOUR, long-hop from . MacLeod jumps back and pummels it through mid-wicket with a pull shot to collect his sixth boundary

4

to MacLeod, byes, FOUR, misses everything! It was darted outside off, MacLeod misses the reverse sweep. Moor can't collect it and the ball dribbles away into the fence

4

to MacLeod, FOUR, fifty for MacLeod! His seventh in ODI cricket. Gets there with a fierce cut that races away into the fence

4

to MacLeod, FOUR, four more. Short and wide outside off, once again MacLeod employs the cut shot to good effect

W

Williams to MacLeod, out Bowled!! Does him in. Yet again a batsman after doing all the hard work of settling down perishes before the final assault. The quicker, flatter dart does the trick. Rips back in to go past the searching defence to flatten the stumps. Off to be precise. MacLeod b Williams 58(78) [4s-8]

W

to Berrington, out Lbw!! Dead straight. Takes over from the umpire to banish himself. All too easy. A straighter one this, pins Berrington bang in front of off. Was going only one way. The Scotts losing their way in the middle overs. Berrington lbw b 7(21)

W

to Con de Lange, out Caught by Craig Ervine!! The deat slog. Opens himself up, not quite under the ball but doesn'ty believe in adjusting. Looks to tonk one downtown, miscues and has long-on mopping it up. With a dive after a sprint. Talk about effort - and style. Con de Lange c Craig Ervine b 1(6)

W

to Mommsen, out Lbw!! Ends what has been a troubled stay. Courtesy a dodgy call. A shocker in no mean terms. After a few plays and misses, a few edges and some nervy moments, Mommsen decides to glide deep inside the crease in looking to tuck it away. Ricochets onto his pads off the gloves. Just that the umpire fails tgo spot it out. Mommsen lbw b 4(8)

4

Williams to Craig Wallace, FOUR, off and running. With a healthy edge, the outer running through the vacant cordon

W

to Craig Wallace, out Bowled!! Here comes the fifer. And what a way to bring his side on top after a decimating first hour and a half of play. Gets there with some help from Wallace of course, who commits on a reverse sweep this time. Misses big time and the middle of middle is pegged back. Craig Wallace b 7(5) [4s-1]

W

to Davey, out Lbw!! The slide is on. Doesn't matter what form of spin it is. Doesn't matter who the spinner is. Spinning in with a nice loop as Davey stretches forward in the conventional defence. With the bat and pad in close proximity. Just enough on it to go past the blade and smash below the knee roll. Davey lbw b 8(16)

W

to Evans, out Caught by Moor!! The stay lasts a whole two balls. Throws the bat out, without any sort of technique. The outcome - an obvious thick outside edge to the keeper. Zimbabwe one wicket away from closing in on a spirited fightback. Evans c Moor b 0(2)

4

to Leask, FOUR, a drag down. Rank freebie this. Hacked away into the mid-wicket fence with an opening of the back leg

W

Burl to Chris Sole, out Bowled!! The demise to spin continues. And reaches the dead end. The loopy leg-break this, does Sole in the air as he attempts a flick against the line. Against the spin. Misses all ends up and the stumps take the brunt. The Scotts cleaned up for a paltry 169. Chris Sole b Burl 2(12)
