MOURINHO: I HAVE NO IDEA WHEN POGBA WILL BE BACK FOR MAN UNITED

MOURINHO: I HAVE NO IDEA WHEN POGBA WILL BE BACK FOR MAN UNITED

The France international has missed more than a month with an injury, and his manager still does not know when he will be fit again

Jose Mourinho angrily deflected questions about injured Paul Pogba, insisting he has “no idea” when the midfielder will be available for Manchester United.

The Red Devils were dealt a blow in September when their French star pulled a hamstring in a Champions League clash against Basel.

While Pogba has been as active as usual on social media in that interim, there has been little word on when he can return for his club.

And Mourinho appears to be getting tired of that line of questioning, if his reaction on Saturday was any indication.

“I have no idea [when he will return],” the manager snapped when the Pogba question was asked after a 1-0 win over Tottenham.

“Honestly. I am not in control of his recovery process. He is not training with me. He is on individual work and when a player is on individual work I cannot predict.

“I would expect Marcos Rojo to return after the international break because he is training with me. But with Paul I have no idea.

“[Without Pogba] We won every match except one. Two? Well, two, so not bad.”

The Special One also brushed off the jeers that were heard when he substituted Marcus Rashford for Anthony Martial, who proved United’s match-winner.

“They pay the ticket they can do what they want. They can boo a player that doesn’t deserve to be booed, they can boo a player who is working like an animal, even though the game is not going in his direction,” he said.

“They can boo – they pay their tickets, they can boo the manager.”

The Red Devils will be back in action on Tuesday, when they host Benfica at Old Trafford.

PREVIEW DAY 2, ZIM vs WI: Opener Hamilton Masakadza struck an unbeaten century as Zimbabwe reached 169 for four at the close on a rain-curtailed first day of the second test against West Indies at the Queens Sports Club on Sunday. After Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to bat, Masakadza reached 101 not out from 171 balls with nine fours and two sixes. He will resume on Monday with Sikandar Raza (nine not out). Masakadza watched from the opposite end as Zimbabwe slipped into early trouble when they limped to 14 for three as West Indies seamer Kemar Roach (two for 24) made early inroads for the visitors, including the big wicket of Brendan Taylor (one). But Masakadza, who scored his fifth test century, put on 142 for the fourth wicket with Peter Moor (52) before the latter was bowled by Roston Chase (one for 26). The players left the field at the end of the 61st over and persistent rain kept them off for the remainder of the day. West Indies won the first test by 117 runs and cannot lose the two-match series.

Commentary (Zimbabwe innings)

64.4 S Gabriel to Raza, No run. 179/4

64.3 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Gabriel slips this one on the pads and Hamilton stays well balanced. He clips it beautifully through mid-wicket. Chase chases it on this slow outfield and cuts it off. Saves a run for his side. 179/4

64.2 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Fractionally overpitched around off, timed sweetly to mid off. 176/4

64.1 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Length delivery around off, Hamilton stays back and defends it stoutly. 176/4

63.6 K Roach to Raza, Brave leave! Angling in prodigiously from outside off on a fuller length, Sikandar covers his off pole and lets it go. Good over from Roach. 176/4

Alan Wilkins on-air praises Roston Chase. He has played 14 Tests and scored a decent amount of runs (934) as well as picked up wickets (26). He is an underrated cricketer but he has a lot of potential which he proves time and again.

63.5 K Roach to Raza, In the zone outside off, left alone. 176/4

63.4 K Roach to Raza, In the off stump channel, a bit of nibble in the air. Raza knows where his off stump is and makes a good leave. 176/4

63.3 K Roach to Raza, Roach searches for some swing and hence, bowls it fullish on off. Doesn’t get much movement though and Raza deals with it easily. 176/4

63.2 K Roach to Raza, Good length delivery around off, defended solidly off the back foot. 176/4

The sweeper cover is coming inside the ring. Right tactic from Holder.

63.1 K Roach to Masakadza, Full delivery on off, Hamilton crouches and taps it to mid on for a swift single. 176/4

62.6 S Gabriel to Raza, Not much movement either in the air or off the pitch for Gabriel. On a length on off, holding its line. Sikandar gets behind the line of the delivery and eases it to covers. 175/4

62.5 S Gabriel to Raza, Effort ball from Gabriel! He hits the deck hard and bowls it around off, Raza sways away from the line of the delivery, drops his wrists and makes a good leave. 175/4

62.4 S Gabriel to Raza, A touch fuller this time but well outside off, Raza plants his front foot across and lets it go safely. 175/4

62.3 S Gabriel to Raza, Full length delivery attacking the stumps, Sikandar prods forward and defends it with a high elbow. 175/4

Two slips for Raza.

62.2 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Shaping into Hamilton who tucks it nicely through square leg to rotate strike. 175/4

62.1 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Good length delivery in the corridor of uncertainty, angling in. Masakadza hangs back and defends it nicely to covers. 174/4

Shannon Gabriel to bowl from the other end. A slip and a gully in place. The slip fielder is standing in a much more conventional position for Gabriel.

61.6 K Roach to Raza, Full delivery on the base of off stump, Raza leans ahead and blocks it solidly. 174/4

Two slips and a gully in place for Raza. West Indies are attacking him as he is new to the crease.

61.5 K Roach to Raza, Stays back to this one and answers it with a straight bat. 174/4

61.4 K Roach to Masakadza, Roach goes wider of the crease and angles in a full length delivery into Hamilton. He shuffles a bit and pushes it to mid off for a run. 174/4

61.3 K Roach to Masakadza, Similar delivery outside off, not close enough to induce a stroke from Masakadza. 173/4

61.2 K Roach to Masakadza, Length delivery in the zone of apprehension, a bit of inward movement. Masakadza points his bat skywards and allows it through. 173/4

61.1 K Roach to Masakadza, FOUR! What a way to start off the day for Masakadza! Half-volley outside off, Hamilton leans ahead confidently and creams it past the diving extra cover fielder to find the fence. He is continuing from where he left off. 173/4

We are set to get rolling. The weather is a bit warmer this morning in Bulawayo. Hamilton Masakadza and Sikandar Raza to continue their innings. Kemar Roach to steam in with the ball. He got the rewards last morning. Can he get them today as well? A wide slip in place. Here we go…

PITCH REPORT – Tino Mawoyo says the pitch was covered due to the weather but there are some dry areas from which the ball might turn and bounce. Adds if the batsmen show some resistance they will be well on course to get a decent first innings total.

On the other hand, the tourists were more or less disciplined. They would be aiming to restrict the home side to as less as possible. With grey clouds looming overhead, it will be a stern test for the batsmen. Let’s hope the rain stays away and we get in the allotted overs today.

Hello and a warm welcome to the coverage of Day 2 of the second and final Test between Zimbabwe and West Indies in Bulawayo. The hosts have shown that they have the temperament to bounce back from tough situations. Masakadza emerged as the hero for them as he scored an unbeaten century and is still going strong. However, he needs support from the lower middle order if they are to go past the 300-run mark.

… Day 2, Session 1 …

Come the third session, Moor departed as soon as he scored a fifty but the onus was on Hamilton Masakadza who was approaching his Test ton. He got to it but then the dark clouds opened up, not allowing any more play. The conditions got very gloomy forcing the match officials to call it a day. The hosts would feel they have got out of the jail but the question is, will they be able to carry this further? With 29 overs getting lost today, the match will begin half an hour early, that is 0930 local for the next three days and it shall begin 5 minutes early, that is 0955 local on the final day to cover up for the time and overs lost. Do join us tomorrow to see how this Test pans out, weather permitting. Until next time, it’s goodbye from us. Cheers!

A damp squib is what we got to witness after two good sessions of play today. After opting to bat on a chilly morning, Zimbabwe’s top order was dented within no time as the Windies’ pacers took full toll of the conditions that were on offer. They could have had even more had Gabriel not overstepped when Masakadza was batting on 15. Hamilton then got good support from Moor. The duo weathered the storm and staged a remarkable recovery. They kept the visitors at bay for the entire second session and in the process stitched a game-changing 142-run stand.

1646 local time update – And as expected, the conditions aren’t deemed good enough for the play to continue and THAT’S STUMPS ON DAY 1!

1615 local time update – The rain has subsided a bit but there is still a light drizzle. Keeping that and light in mind, it seems like the inevitable is on the cards. But still let’s wait for the official confirmation…

1555 local time update – The news isn’t good, folks! The rain is only getting heavier and the entire ground is now covered. The light can be a issue too as it has gone all gloomy. Chances of further play look bleak but let’s keep our fingers crossed…

1525 local time – Both the umpires come together to have a word as the drizzle has gotten heavier. It’s quite murky as well. And they call for the covers now. The groundsmen coming running in. The players are asked to leave the field. Stay with us as we will keep you posted…

57.6 R Chase to P Moor, OUT! Bowled ’em! It’s totally against the run of play! Roston Chase is the one who breaks the 142-run stand! The Windies are relieved at the moment as they have been kept at bay for a long period of time. Chase pushes it quicker through the air, drops it a touch short around off.

Welcome back for the final session, folks! Hamilton Maskadza and Peter Moor stride out to bat. All eyes on the former as he is just 7 short of the three-figure mark. Roston Chase to continue the proceedings. Let’s play…

… Day 1, Final session …

The Windies will be really kicking themselves to have let the momentum slip away. Gabrile overstepped when Masakadza was on 15 has come down as a haunting for them. In this session their bowlers apart from Roach looked off color. Bishoo and Chase are getting the ball to turn but they have bowled too many loose deliveries as well. Can they break this stand? Will we see Masakadza reaching the three-figure mark? Join us in a while to find out…

What a session for Zimbabwe, a wicket-less one! They were down and out in the morning, losing three quick wickets but since then Hamilton Masakadza and Peter Moor have done a really good job to hold the innings together. Agreed, the former got a few lives but he has made it count. The latter looked a bit desperate to score runs but his side will be happy to see him still out there. The stand is worth 133 and it will be interesting to see if these two can swell it to a big one.

52.6 D Bishoo to P Moor, Edgyyy! Tossed up ball outside off, Moor leans ahead to drive but gets a thick outside edge which rolls past the slip fielder. They take two and that is TEA ON DAY 1! 147/3

52.5 D Bishoo to Moor, Turning away from a length outside off, left alone. 145/3

52.4 D Bishoo to Moor, In the air… safe! There is no need to go after this Moor. Really a bad approach with the tea break around the corner! Flighted delivery around middle, Moor gets down and goes for the slog sweep against the spin. The ball turns away and hence he gets a big top edge. However, there is no one patrolling in the deep mid-wicket region and so a couple is taken. 145/3

47.6 R Chase to Masakadza, NOT OUT! The on-field call has to be overturned! The crowd goes wild, they want to see the ton from the bat of Masakadza! Chase floats it up outside off, Hamilton dances down the track but the ball turns in and it goes off something to the short leg fielder. They all appeal and umpire Dharmasena raises his finger. Masakadza after taking his time challenges the decision. Front foot is fine. There is no spike on the Ultra Edge as the ball went past the bat. So, maybe it came off the forearm. Now they also check for the LBW and replays show the impact is miles outside off. Right then, Masakadza gets another life. 133/3

Hamilton Masakadza is given out caught at short leg. Now then, he walks towards Moor, takes his time and then opts for the review. He says, he isn’t sure. Let’s wait and find out. He is on 86, can he survive?

45.1 R Chase to Masakadza, Loopy delivery around off, defended off the front foot gently. 121/3

A bit of an issue with the ball again. The leather needs trimming. Meanwhile, the umpires call for drinks. Zimbabwe have recovered really well after the initial jolt.

Right in the gap between the two fielders in the deep and he picks up another boundary. It has been a measured knock from him. He was out off a no ball but has since then, looked assured and needs to carry on. 81/3

31.2 K Roach to Moor, Overpitched around off, driven crisply to sweeper cover for a brace. 76/3

31.1 K Roach to Moor, Fuller in length around off, Moor chooses to stay back and defend it. Ian Bishop on-air mentions that in Roach’s previous over, an edge went past the second slip region. He feels that is the reason the first slip fielder has been moved wider. 74/3

30.6 D Bishoo to Masakadza, Well outside off, Hamilton shuffles across his stumps and leaves it. 74/3

30.5 D Bishoo to Masakadza, Lunges forward to this one and defends it. 74/3

29.6 K Roach to Moor, Full length delivery attacking the stumps, Moor clears his front leg and looks to jam it out but gets an inside edge onto his pads. 70/3

29.5 K Roach to Moor, Fullish on middle and leg, Moor looks to clip it away but is struck on the thigh pad. A casual appeal is turned down. It was always heading down leg. 70/3

29.4 K Roach to Moor, Bouncer around off, Moor sways away from the line of the delivery to evade it. It dies on the keeper. Indications that it is an abrasive surface. 70/3

29.3 K Roach to P Moor, Good length delivery shaping into Moor. He keeps it out off the inner half of the bat. 70/3

29.2 K Roach to Moor, On a length outside off, holding its line. Peter doesn’t fiddle with it. 70/3

Ian Bishop on-air mentions that short leg can be brought in place. Roach is getting good inward movement and that might induce a false stroke towards that region. It is about applying mental pressure as well.

29.1 K Roach to Moor, Good length delivery outside off, seaming in sharply. Moor covers the line and blocks it down the track. 70/3

27.5 K Roach to Moor, Overpitched outside off, driven sweetly to the man in the cover region. 66/3

Bishoo to continue his spell. Two slips in place.

25.6 K Roach to Masakadza, Shaping in sharply from a length around off, Masakadza is cramped for room and blocks it towards mid on. 61/3

Ed Rainsford on-air mentions that Masakadza has done well to leave the balls outside the off stump. His teammates were guilty of fiddling with deliveries in that channel and paid the price for it.

25.5 K Roach to Masakadza, Good length delivery outside off, left alone. 61/3

25.4 K Roach to Moor, Around the hips, tucked to fine leg for an easy single. 61/3

25.1 K Roach to Masakadza, No ball! Starts off with a high full toss, a beamer. Masakadza keeps it out around the corner for a run. Roach immediately apologizes to him, that was not intentional. If he bowls another one, he will be taken out of the attack. 58/3

We are back for the afternoon session. Hamilton Masakadza and Peter Moor to continue batting. Kemar Roach to bowl first up after lunch. A wide slip in place. Here we go…

… Day 1, Session 2 …

The pair of Masakadza and Moor though has stitched a decent partnership to get things going or the matters could have been worse. Remember, Gabriel also got a wicket off a no ball of Masakadza. He needs to address his front foot issue sooner rather than later. Zimbabwe will look to get back into the contest while the tourists will be eager to keep taking wickets. Holder gave only one over to Bishoo and we might see him bowling a lot in the second session. Join us in a while.

Great opening session of the game for the Windies. Grey clouds are still looming overhead and the visitors have made the most of the conditions on offer. Both Gabriel and Roach were on the money and took three quick wickets to put the hosts on the back foot. There was no real application from the Zimbabwean batsmen and that led to their downfall.

24.6 D Bishoo to Moor, Tossed up outside off, left alone by Moor. Good over by Bishoo, a maiden. That’s Lunch, Day 1! 56/3

24.5 D Bishoo to Moor, Nicely bowled! Bowls it outside off, with a bit of drift, Moor looks to defend but is beaten all ends up. The batsman did lose his balance in the process but thankfully for him, he never left the crease and hence could not be out stumped. 56/3

24.4 D Bishoo to Moor, Floated outside off, driven towards covers by Moor. 56/3

24.3 D Bishoo to Moor, This one is wide enough for the batsman to leave it. 56/3

24.1 D Bishoo to P Moor, Loops it outside off, driven towards covers by the batsman. 56/3

22.6 S Gabriel to Moor, Full and outside off, Moor defends it towards point from his crease. 52/3

22.5 S Gabriel to Moor, Gabriel bowls this full and this time he gets Moor to poke at it. The ball swings away and beats the bat. Moor was playing for the one that comes into the batsman. 52/3

22.4 S Gabriel to Moor, Same line, same length, same shot by the batsman. 52/3

22.3 S Gabriel to Moor, Full and outside off, left alone by the batsman. 52/3

22.2 S Gabriel to Moor, Gabriel bowls it outside off on a fuller length, Moor is not bothered. 52/3

22.1 S Gabriel to Moor, Shorter in length outside off, Moor backs away and pats it towards point. 52/3

21.6 J Holder to Masakadza, Shorter in length outside off, punched into the off side by the batsman. 52/3

21.5 J Holder to Masakadza, Full length outside off, left alone by Moor. 52/3

Fazeer Mohammed on-air mentions that Zimbabwe need to play more Test cricket. This is their third Test match this year while the other teams have played much more. Bangladesh had got their opportunities and they have improved as a side. The ICC should take steps to give the African nation more opportunities to prove their worth.

21.4 J Holder to Moor, Hurls a length ball just outside off, Moor comes forward to defend but gets an inside edge through the leg side for a single. 52/3

A sweeper goes back.

20.4 S Gabriel to Masakadza, FOUR! Good shot! Full and outside off, Masakadza strides forward and drives it through the covers. This time the timing is good and he gets a boundary, which is a rare thing on this slow outfield. 50 up for the home side. 51/3

20.3 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Angles a length ball just around off, Masakadza defends it from his crease. 47/3

20.2 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Good length outside off, defended towards covers. 47/3

19.4 J Holder to Masakadza, Shorter in length outside off, Masakadza drops his wrists and lets it go. 46/3

19.3 J Holder to Masakadza, Shorter in length outside off, punched towards point by the batsman. 46/3

19.2 J Holder to Masakadza, Length ball outside off, left alone. 46/3

Jason Holder is missing a trick probably. He is still sticking with Jermaine Blackwood even though he is not posing any real threat to the batsmen. Agreed that the conditions are overcast but the go-to-man, Devendra Bishoo needs to be introduced into the attack. Zimbabwe are three down for not many and the pressure needs to be applied at this point of the game.

19.1 J Holder to Masakadza, Good length outside off, no shot offered by Masakadza. 46/3

18.6 J Blackwood to Moor, Full and wide outside off, left alone. 46/3

17.4 J Holder to Moor, Ouch! Banged in short around middle, Moor arches back and lets it go. The ball brushes the right shoulder of the batsman and goes towards the slip cordon. No appeal since there was no bat there. 43/3

17.3 J Holder to Moor, Angles a length ball around off, Moor gets in line and defends it. 43/3

17.2 J Holder to Moor, Holder goes full but too straight. Moor pushes it down the ground. The mid on fielder hares after it and cuts it off. Two runs taken thanks to the slow outfield. 43/3

17.1 J Holder to P Moor, FOUR! Smacked! Short and wide from Holder, Moor does not miss out and crashes it past point for a boundary. That is where he likes it and the Windies are not bowling to their plans at the moment. 41/3

16.6 J Blackwood to Masakadza, Fuller in length, played back to the bowler. 37/3

16.5 J Blackwood to Masakadza, This one is wide outside off, left alone. 37/3

16.4 J Blackwood to Masakadza, Angles it on the pads, turned through the square leg region for a couple of runs. 37/3

16.3 Blackwood to Masakadza, NOT OUT! Weird! Fuller in length from Blackwood outside off, Masakadza drives it back down the wicket. Jermaine gets a hand to it and deflects it at the stumps at the bowler’s end. The umpire is jumping to save himself but the ball still hits him on the neck. Fry the umpire refers it upstairs as he clearly had no time to see what transpired there. Replays show that Moor never left the crease and hence it is not out. Close call for the umpire there. 35/3

Wow! What happened there? Masakadza drives one back to Blackwood who manages to get a hand to it in his followthrough as the ball disturbs the stumps at the other end. The bowler is ringing his right hand as he appeals and umpire Simon Fry refers it upstairs…

16.2 J Blackwood to Masakadza, A tad short around off, punched towards covers. 35/3

16.1 J Blackwood to Masakadza, Bowls it outside off on a fuller length, left alone by the batsman. 35/3

15.6 J Holder to Moor, Good timing! Overpitched outside off, Moor just pushes at it and gets it through the cover region. Two runs taken. 35/3

15.5 J Holder to Moor, In the zone outside off, left alone. 33/3

15.4 J Holder to Moor, Outside off, Moor is no mood to flirt with it. Alan Wilkins on-air informs that it is a really cold morning in Bulawayo. The players in the dressing room have their hands in the pockets. 33/3

12.4 J Blackwood to Masakadza, Fullish on off, eased to mid on. 29/3

12.3 J Blackwood to Masakadza, Another nervy moment! Full outside off, Masakadza pushes at it but gets a bottom edge. The ball runs past the off stump and rolls towards Dowrich. 29/3

11.6 K Roach to H Masakadza, In the air… but safe! Full length delivery on off, Hamilton pokes at it but gets an outside edge that falls well short of Dowrich. Playing with soft hands was the key there. 28/3

11.5 K Roach to Masakadza, Fullish delivery, pushed back to the bowler. 28/3

11.4 K Roach to Masakadza, FOUR! Crisp! Back of a length delivery and width on offer, Masakadza frees his arms and slaps it through cover-point and the ball races to the fence. 28/3

Drinks.

10.6 S Gabriel to Masakadza, WICKET OFF A NO BALL! Oh no! The perennial problem of Gabriel returns to haunt him again. He bowls the effort ball on a shorter length around off, Masakadza goes for a pull but seems to have edged it onto his right arm. The ball lobs in front of the slip cordon. Kyle Hope from gully runs across to his left and dives to take it really well. The players appeal vociferously but the umpire shakes his head. The visitors challenge the decision immediately. The opener starts to walk back but is asked to stop by the umpire. Time for the replays and Gabriel has overstepped. That’s the end of the story. The Snicko spotted the edge. Hamilton gets another chance. Wonder how Gabriel is feeling right now! Replays show that he was flabbergasted. No review lost since it was a no ball. 23/3

Windies go for the review straightaway. They feel that there is certainly an edge as opposed to the umpire, Simon Fry. Let’s find out..

10.5 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Off-cutter on a fuller length just outside off, Masakadza spots it and drives it crisply to mid off. 22/3

9.6 K Roach to Masakadza, Stays back to the good length delivery and blocks it. Another productive over for the visitors. 19/3

9.5 K Roach to Masakadza, Fractionally overpitched on off, Masakadza leans into it and strokes it past the bowler past mid off. The fielder from the same region chases it and keeps it down to a couple. 19/3

9.4 K Roach to Masakadza, The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump. 17/3

9.3 K Roach to Masakadza, Back of a length delivery on off, tucked through square leg for a couple. 17/3

Graeme Cremer had talked about playing out the first hour carefully but the Zimbabwean batting has let the team down once again. Only three wickets yes but all three of them have been due to the poor application from the batsmen. The Windies bowlers have been disciplined but the hosts’ batsmen have not showed enough of the same. All of them have been stuck in the crease, not getting either fully forward or staying back which has led to their downfall. With no Sean Williams, the task is only going to get tougher.

9.2 K Roach to Moor, Angling in from outside off, clipped of the inner half to fine leg for a single. 15/3

Peter Moor is the new man in. He has got an opportunity in this game and will look to make it count.

9.1 K Roach to Taylor, OUT! The Windies are on fire! This time it is Roach who sends another batsman packing. He steams in and lands it on a fullish length in the zone on apprehension, gets some inward movement off the deck. Taylor is in two minds whether to play at it or leave it alone. He ends up feeling for it and the ball takes the inside edge of the bat to deflect back onto the stumps. Zimbabwe are struggling. The decision to bat first after winning the toss is proving to be wrong. 14/3

8.6 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Fuller in length on off, Masakadza instead of coming forward stays back. He somehow manages to block it. 14/2

8.5 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Good bowling! There is a lot of movement on offer and Gabriel is making good use of it. Angling in sharply from around off, Hamilton is a bit tentative but somehow keeps it out. 14/2

8.4 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Fuller length ball around off, Masakadza strides forward and defends it solidly. 14/2

8.3 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Well outside off this time, Masakadza leaves it alone. 14/2

8.2 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Good length delivery outside off, Hamilton lets it go. 14/2

8.1 S Gabriel to Masakadza, Back of a length delivery around off, Masakadza punches it off the back foot through cover-point. Two runs taken. It took Gabriel 16 deliveries to make Hamilton play at one. 14/2

7.6 K Roach to Taylor, A loud appeal for an LBW denied! Fullish delivery around off, Taylor looks to keep it out but misses to get hit on the pads. Roach appeals confidently but the umpire stays put. Height must have been a factor. Hawk Eye shows that it would have clipped the top of leg stump. Fair call! 12/2

7.5 K Roach to Taylor, Hangs back to the good length delivery and remains composed in defense. 12/2

7.4 K Roach to Taylor, Back of a length delivery around off, Taylor camps back and blocks it stoutly. 12/2

6.5 S Gabriel to B Taylor, Fullish delivery, shaping in from outside off. Taylor drives it off the inner half to mid on and gets off the mark. A run taken. 12/2

6.4 S Gabriel to Taylor, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 11/2

6.3 S Gabriel to Taylor, Fullish delivery around off, Brendan strides forward and defends it. 11/2

Brendan Taylor strides out to bat.

6.2 Gabriel to C Ervine, OUT! Bowled ’em! What a sight for a fast bowler. Roach troubled the southpaw in the previous over from round the wicket angle and Gabriel follows in his footsteps. He goes wider of the crease and angles in a fuller length ball from outside off. Generates prodigious movement after pitching. Ervine is half-forward, leaves a big gap between his bat and pad and the ball zips through the gap to shatter the middle stump. It goes for a walk and the visitors are delighted! Craig departs for a duck. Zimbabwe in some trouble. 11/2

6.1 S Gabriel to H Masakadza, Fractionally overpitched outside off, Masakadza drives it nicely through covers. Blackwood hares after it from the point region. The outfield is not that quick and that allows the fielder to keep it in play. Saves a run for his side. 11/1

5.6 K Roach to Ervine, On a length on middle and leg, Craig hangs back and pushes it defensively to short mid-wicket. End of a testing over from Roach, a maiden. 8/1

5.4 K Roach to Ervine, Length delivery outside off, coming in with the angle, this time Ervine is much more assured in his leave. 8/1

Craig Ervine comes out to bat. He is a good batsman and will be eager to play an innings of substance.

3.6 K Roach to Mire, OUT! Roach draws first blood! Hurls this one on a fuller length in the channel outside off, gets some away swing as well. Mire pokes at it with minimal foot movement and plays away from the body. An outside edge is induced. Dowrich dives full length to his right and takes a good catch. Good bowling from Roach, he set him up well. Bowled good length deliveries earlier and pushed one fuller this time which brought the downfall of the opener. Not good from the opener too, he was starting to get a bit desperate after a string of dots in the over. Anyway, ideal start for the Windies. 4/1
