    OUT! Caught. Graeme Cremer to Shannon Gabriel. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to short leg, by Ervine. Gone first ball, Zimbabwe are cock-a-hoop as they leap around in celebration. Gabriel pushes forward tentatively and a healthy inside edge pops up to Ervine who takes another quality catch at short leg.

    Phew, time to take a breath. What a session for Zimbabwe, they have ripped apart the West Indies middle and lower order to bundle the tourists out for 219. It was a fantastic group bowling effort, everyone maintaining their discipline on a placid surface, but Cremer finishing as the pick with 4/64. You've got to spare a thought for Shai Hope who was superb for his unbeaten 90. He played some attractive strokes but could only watch on helplessly as the final seven Windies wickets fell for just 45 runs. There is plenty of spin there for the spinners already, but you would suggest that is a below par score.

    OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Graeme Cremer to Kemar Roach. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad. Another one bites the dust, this match has come alive in the final session as Zimbabwe continue to rip through the tourists. Roach looks to hide his bat behind his front pad but that's a dangerous ploy against Cremer who fires in a googly. He's plumb in front and wastes a review to boot so Windies have none left in the tank now. Hope might just regret taking the single off the first ball of the over.

    Graeme Cremer to Kemar Roach. Leg spinner back of a length, middle stump on the back foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to cover for no runs, fielded by Waller.

  • 81.6

    OUT! Caught. Sean Williams to Devendra Bishoo. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to short leg, by Ervine. Snaffled at short leg, Bishoo is gone for a duck and the Windies are tottering in this evening session. Zimbabwe are on a roll and this catch is further evidence of that, Ervine staying alert and low to catch this off the face of Bishoo's clip. The local crowd is loving every second of this as Shai Hope looks on helplessly from the non-striker's end.

  • 79.6

    OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Sean Williams to Jason Holder. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad. Williams strikes again, this is turning into a fantastic session for the hosts. This is darted in fast on leg causing Holder to aim a clip through mid wicket, but the ball turns prodigiously to trap him in front. Holder asks for a review and it seems like there is the possibility of a leading edge, but either way the ball seemed to be caught so Holder will have to trudge off. The new ball will now be available but spin is proving deadly.

  • 79.5

    Sean Williams to Jason Holder. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Waller.

  • 79.1

    APPEAL! Sean Williams to Shai Hope. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips for no runs, by Masakadza, appeal made for Caught. Did that carry to slip? No one seems sure, including the fielder. The umpires take a look upstairs but replays confirm it just bounced short of Masakadza.

  • 78.6

    FOUR! Graeme Cremer to Jason Holder. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Repeat dose, Holder is a tall man and uses it to his advantage. Cremer will just have to drag his length back a touch.

  • 78.5

    Graeme Cremer to Jason Holder. Googly half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Cremer.

  • 78.4

    FOUR! Graeme Cremer to Jason Holder. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Cracking stroke, Holder uses ever inch of his reach to turn this into a half volley and cream it into the gap.

  • 78.3

    Graeme Cremer to Jason Holder. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Taylor.

  • 78.2

    APPEAL! Graeme Cremer to Jason Holder. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Big appeal, Holder doesn't read the googly. Height just saves him in the end, ball tracking shows the umpire made a great decision.

  • 61.3

    OUT! Caught. Shannon Gabriel to Christopher Mpofu. Reverse Swing-Out length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dowrich. Regulation edge is safely gobbled up by Dowrich, that ends the brief resistance by Mpofu as he is sucked into this well outside the off stump. That will take us to tea on Day Two as the West Indies secure a 60 run lead.

    That was a fantastic session for the tourists, they took seven wickets this afternoon for just 58 runs to secure a more than handy lead. Roach got things going but then it was Bishoo, Bishoo, they all fall down. The legspinner picked up 5/79 and looked a threat with almost every delivery, although he was helped at times by some pretty ordinary strokes. Zimbabwe will need to come out fired up this evening and look for wickets straight away, as this tough surface will be at it's worst for batting in the fourth innings.

    OUT! Bowled. Sean Williams to Roston Chase. Quicker length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed.

    No century for Roston Chase. He gave it away trying to get there with a six, knowing his partner isn't the greatest with the bat at the other end. Zimbabwe have started the day off brightly taking the final two wickets in quick time, but the big task is only just starting. They will need 434 runs to win this game with just less than two days to play. See you soon.

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Graeme Cremer to Shannon Gabriel. Leg spinner half volley, down leg side on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Hopeful review from Zimbabwe to try and get the captain a hat-trick but unfortunately the decision isn't going to be overturned. Pitched way outside leg stump.

  • 122.4

    OUT! Bowled. Graeme Cremer to Kemar Roach. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed.

    A tough day for Zimbabwe in the field yesterday after the Windies batsmen put the bowler's under serious pressure with their aggressive style. The score has been pushed on to such an extent that Zimbabwe will require a world record chase if they are to win from here. That is without any more runs to be added but Windies will probably bat on this morning so that Roston Chase can bring up his fourth Test century. Zimbabwe have shown some fight recently but two days is a long time to try and bat, with the pitch offering as much spin as it is, and Devendra Bishoo will be eyeing up a few wickets.

    What a delivery first up from Graeme Cremer, the googly which is too good for the number ten batsman. Through the big gate between bat and pad and knocks over leg stump. Is Chase going to be stranded and can Cremer get a hat-trick?

  • 122.3

    OUT! Caught. Graeme Cremer to Devendra Bishoo. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Williams. Bishoo goes for the same shot again, but picks out the man in the deep perfectly. He does not get to a maiden Test fifty. Tried to get there in style, but miscued into the hands of Williams on the boundary edge.

    That will be stumps on day three. West Indies have dominated again, and are in the perfect position heading into day four. Zimbabwe will need a world record if they want to chase this down, so very unlikely that the visitors can lose from here. Roston Chase has the chance of making a century tomorrow morning if his captain lets him, but either way, the Windies should be winning this game with two days still to go.

  • 122.2

    FOUR! Graeme Cremer to Devendra Bishoo. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Last over of the day, but Bishoo still wants to play his shots. He slog-sweeps with the tun and nails it to the mid wicket fence. One bounce four.

    OUT! Caught. Roston Chase to Christopher Mpofu. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air under control to long on, by Powell.

    Unfortunately the fun ends after Mpofu can't get enough elevation to beat the man at long on. He was jumping, hoping that the ball would go for six but not this time.

    West Indies win by 117 runs and they go 1-0 up in the two match series. It has been a roller coaster day for the crowd after Zimbabwe started off incredibly strong in the first innings but then fell away after that. Hamilton Masakadza and Solomon Mire got a 99 run opening partnership and Brendan Taylor scored 73 on his return to Test cricket but there was too many soft dismissals. That will be the one thing that will disappoint the coaching staff as they had a real chance to take this game into a fifth day and then you never know what would have happened.

    Devendra Bishoo finished the match with nine wickets and could be in with a chance of the man of the match, along with Shai Hope or Roston Chase. We are in the same venue for the next game on the 29th, join us then.
