Combined Easterns/Northerns XI 132 for 2 (Kuhn 47, Seymore 77*) trail Zimbabweans 206 (Chigumbura 40, Morkel 3-57, Abrahams 3-36, Harris 3-51) by 74 runs
An unbeaten 77 from the captain Andre Seymore gave the Easterns/Northerns XI the upper hand on the first day of the tour match at Willowmoore Park in Benoni. After putting the Zimbabweans in and bowling them out for 206, the combined XI had reached 132 for 2 by the close.
Seymore shared an opening stand of 125 with Heino Kuhn, before the uncapped slow left-armer Sean Williams took two quick wickets to brighten Zimbabwe's day a little.
When they batted, several of the Zimbabweans had made decent starts: seven of them reached double figures, but the highest score was only 40, by Elton Chigumbura, who eventually became one of three wickets for the Titans fast bowler Siraag Abrahams. Paul Harris and Morne Morkel also finished with three victims as Zimbabwe succumbed for 206.
