Vusimusi Sibanda who was hammering Australian bowlers all over the ground was dismissed in the 4th over. Sibandas run torrent came to an end as he edged a delivery from Nathan Bracken into the hands of wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist. Sibanda made 24 runs from 16 balls.
Earlier, a depleted Australian side could manage just 138 runs for the loss of 8 wickets against Zimbabwe. Australia were sent into tizzy as they lost their top batsmen to some brilliant bowling and fielding display by Zimbabwe.
