    H Masakadza run out 12 (Zim 17-1)

    A run-out - and also a possible injury!

    Vusi Sibanda pushes the ball into the covers and sets off for a single, both batsmen are ball-watching, they bump into each other, crash their helmets together, and while Masakadza is the man run out, Sibanda is lying on the ground and needs a visit from the Zimbabwe physio...

  2. Get Involved


    Ollie Rae: Another late night in store from New Zealand! Come on Scotland!.

  3. Zim 17-0

    Masakadza's 12 runs have all come in boundaries as he laces his third four of the day through the covers. Evans is a little annoyed with a rather late dive from a team-mate in the field which lets the ball sail through.

  4. Zim 13-0

    Sibanda was sent back at the non-striker's end and had to dive to regain his ground - but third umpire Ian "Gunner" Gould rules he's safely home.

  5. Third umpire

    After that brief flirtation with spin, Scotland turn to right-arm seamer Alasdair Evans. Masakadza repeats his sweep shot for four from the first over - then there's a mix-up and a run-out chance...

  6. Backing Scotland

    Fiona Urquhart from the Scotland women's team is settling in to watch the game.

  7. Zim 8-0 (Sibanda 4, H Masakadza 4)

    Seamer Josh Davey to share the new ball, Sibanda helps himself to a two and a single - while not for the first time, TV show Hamilton Masakadza's run-out from the first game, when he perished after failing to run his bat in properly.

  9. Zim 5-0

    Off-spinner Michael Leask, the one team change for Scotland today, is given the first over, bowling round the wicket and rather dragging down his second delivery which Sibanda helps to leg for a single.

    With only two men permitted outside the circle in the first six overs, line and length are of paramount importance - and Masakadza sweeps a four to the unguarded backward square leg boundary.

  10. WATCH: Bangladesh v Netherlands highlights

    Another little video treat before we start - highlights of yesterday's Bangladesh win over the Dutch.

  11. Post update

    Scotland's fielders make their way to the middle, followed by Zimbabwe's openers Hamilton Masakadza and Vusi Sibanda. Not many fans in the stands in Nagpur, with the brightly coloured seats shining in the lunchtime sun.

  12. WATCH: Gary Wilson's amazing fielding

    And here's something to cheer up Ireland fans after yesterday's defeat - an incredible boundary stop from Surrey's Gary Wilson.

  13. Post update

    Anthem time. Zimbabwe up first, a rather cheerful choral number - before the bagpipes strike up for Flower of Scotland.

  14. Oman v Ireland highlights

    While the anthems are about to play, take a look at the best bits of Oman v Ireland from yesterday.

  15. Warming up for the Super 10s

    There are also some other games going on today - teams from the Super 10 stage are playing warm-up matches from today. Namely, New Zealand v Sri Lanka in Mumbai and India v West Indies in Kolkata.

    Meanwhile, there are three warm-ups ahead of the Women's World T20 - India v Ireland, Sri Lanka v Bangladesh and New Zealand v Pakistan.

  16. Watch the highlights

    I also hope you're enjoying our new in-play highlights of this tournament. Plenty to watch from the first couple of games, including a stunning catch from Oman v Ireland yesterday, the thrilling last over of Oman's win, and an unusual "shimmy" shot from Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad which has to be seen to be believed.

  17. Team line-ups

    Zimbabwe: Hamilton Masakadza (capt), Vusi Sibanda, Richmond Mutumbami (wk), Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Sikandar Raza, Elton Chigumbura, Donald Tiripano, Tinashe Panyangara, Wellington Masakadza, Tendai Chatara.

    Scotland: Kyle Coetzer, George Munsey, Matthew Cross (wk), Matt Machan, Richie Berrington, Preston Mommsen (capt), Michael Leask, Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt, Alasdair Evans.

  18. In search of a win

    The monkey on Scotland's backs is this - they are still awaiting their first World Twenty20 win, having also failed to register a victory in the 2007 and 2009 tournaments.

    Despite some good signs in their first game against Afghanistan, they fell 14 runs short - you can read the match report and watch highlights from that game on the BBC Sport website.

    You can also watch Zimbabwe's opening win over Hong Kong - which also came via a 14-run margin.

  19. Toss

    Zimbabwe have won the toss and will bat first.

    Scotland captain Preston Mommsen admits he'd also have batted first - they bring in Michael Leask as an extra spinner. He replaces Calum MacLeod. Zimbabwe are unchanged.

  20. Win - or go home

    Morning, everyone. The equation is simple for Scotland in Nagpur today - beat Zimbabwe, or be eliminated from the World Twenty20 with one game still to play.
