Man of the Match: Jack Burnham (106 not out)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: Zimbabwe 159 in 43.4 overs; BATTING: Brandon Mavuta 3(19): Jeremy Ives has been terrific in the last 10 overs or so, having completed his half-century before racing onto the 80s in no time at all, even hammering three boundaries in a single over by Dan Lawrence. Ives loses the support of Mavuta and Matigimu during his run towards his milestone. He will hope for Magarira to preserve his wicket till he reaches his hundred. OUT! Ives is the last man dismissed, and will not be getting to his century as he gets bowled off the bowling of Mahmood, who takes his fourth wicket as a result. OUT! Brandon Mavuta c Aneurin Donald b Saqib Mahmood 14(23), Kundai Matigimu b Mason Crane 3(6), Jeremy Ives b Saqib Mahmood 91(132)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: Zimbabwe 95/7 in 30 overs; BATTING: Jeremy Ives 47(88), Brandon Mavuta 5(9): Snyder departs for 11 off 26 deliveries, bringing an end to the 35-run partnership for the fourth wicket, one that looked set to pull Zimbabwe out of their early troubles. Callum Taylor pretty much puts Zimbabwe out of the competition with a couple of wickets in a space of a couple of deliveries in the 24th over, sending Mashinge and Keefe back to the pavilion for low scores. Keefe departs for a golden duck, with Taylor on a hat-trick before bowling a wide. Madhevere does not last for long either, getting dismissed for a six-ball 1. Zimbabwe will hope for their tail to guide their side to a somewhat respectable total from here onwards. Meanwhile, Ives is nearing his half-century, and will look to reach the milestone, though it will ultimately go in vain for the team’s cause.  OUT! Shaun Snyder c Brad Taylor b Ben Green 11(26), William Mashinge c Brad Taylor b Callum Taylor 10(20), Adam Keefe c Dan Lawrence b Callum Taylor, Wesley Madhevere b Callum Taylor 1(6)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: Zimbabwe 70/6 in 24 overs; BATTING: Jeremy Ives 32 (66), Wesley Madhevere 0 (1): Zimbabwe have lost a couple of further wickets and it looks highly unlikely that they will get anywhere close to the target.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: Zimbabwe 50/4 in 17 overs; BATTING: Jeremy Ives 15(22),William Mashinge 0 (1): Zimbabwe are further in trouble having lost yet another wicket.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: Zimbabwe 32/3 in 10 overs; BATTING: Jeremy Ives 15(22), Shaun Snyder 5(10): Saqib Mahmood and Sam Curran open the bowling for England, with Akshay Patel and Brendan Sly coming out to bat for the Zimbabweans. OUT! Debutant Patel loses his wicket after a slow start, getting caught at mid-off by the opposition skipper Taylor off Curran’s bowling. OUT! Fellow opener Sly hardly lasts any longer than Patel, getting an outside edge behind the stumps to depart for 3. Zimbabwe head to lunch at 14/2 after five overs. OUT! Murray is dismissed barely an over after lunch. Short delivery outside off, Murray attempts to pull it and gets caught at midwicket! OUT! Akshay Patel c Brad taylor b Sam Curran 2(13), Brendan Sly c Ryan Davies b Saqib Mahmood 3(12), Ryan Murray c Aneurin Donald b Saqib Mahmood 3(5)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: England 288/4 in 50 overs; BATTING: Jack Burnham 106(104), Sam Curran 32(16): OUT! Holden departs after bringing up his half-century, with his mishit directing the ball towards mid-off, where Keefe holds on to the catch. OUT! Callum Taylor departs too, getting caught at short fine-leg while attempting a slog. OUT! Donald is next to depart, coming down the track and missing the delivery completely to  get himself stumped. Burnham, who was earlier dropped on 31, manages to bring up his hundred, while Sam Curran races to the 30s in no time, hammering 20 runs in a single over off Mashinge. England however, finish on a commanding total of 288 for four. OUT!

Holden, meanwhile, is approaching his half-century at the moment. Meanwhile, England look set for a total in excess of 300 at the moment!

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: England 94/1 in 20 overs; BATTING: Max Holden 24(50), Jack Burnham 3(3): Fifty for Lawrence! Superb form displayed by the opening batsman so far! OUT! Lawrence’s innings comes to an end after scoring 59 runs. Comes down the track, and is not able to make enough room to execute the shot, getting caught by Magarira at long-off! OUT!

LIVE CRICKET SCORE: England 56/0 in 10 overs; BATTING: Dan Lawrence 43(43), Max Holden 6(17): The players walk out to bat, with England having won the toss, and in-form opener Dan Lawrence targetting another big score today.
