View dismissal Q de Kock c †Taylor b Chatara 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
0.4 big appeal and de Kock is caught down the leg side! It was short again and going down leg, de Kock tried to tuck it off his hips fine on leg but looks like he got a glove just while trying to pull out of the shot. The appeal was replied instantly by Aleem Dar 2/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Chigumbura b Madziva 14 32 22 2 0 63.63
7.1 mid-off dives, he stretches out both hands to his right and takes it! Captain comes to the party and South Africa's openers are back in the hut. It was a fuller ball on off stump, Amla had crunched one of those to the boundary in the last over, but this time he has chipped it to Chigumbura! Bat turned in his hands, it hit quite low, and his usual timing deserts him again 26/2
View dismissal F du Plessis c Chigumbura b Nyumbu 121 189 140 5 4 86.42
47.5 goes for one too many and the top-edge lands into the hands of midwicket. The Zimbabwe fielders run up to shake his hands as Faf walks off the field. This was a touch quicker and not quite as short. Faf was just in that mode and has to perish. Standing ovation from the dressing room 246/6
View dismissal RR Rossouw b Williams 36 54 39 5 0 92.30
20.5 vicious turn and he's bowled! It was a flighted delivery well outside off, Rossouw saw the width and went for the cut off the back foot but the ball spun very sharply and knocked top of off stump 96/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers* run out (Nyumbu) 16 23 18 2 0 88.88
27.5 Nyumbu to du Plessis, dropped, but is he run out? Faf pushed the delivery back to Nyumbu who went to his right to catch it, he could not as he tried with his left hand, but the ball deflected off him and hit the stumps. And guess what, AB's bat is in the air as he tries to get it back in time. He had taken a couple of steps down the pitch and it proved to be too much 120/4
View dismissal JP Duminy c & b Madziva 51 73 62 3 0 82.25
46.3 that's the slower ball, and it's fetched a simple wicket. Well done, Madziva. Gets a pat on his head from Faf as he walks off. This was a fullish delivery and Duminy, because of his attacking intent, lunges for it and goes for a swipe. Would have been served better hitting through the line. Ends up a top edge, and the bowler calls for it. Taylor backs off and the catch is taken 223/5

View dismissal V Sibanda run out (de Villiers) 11 31 15 1 0 73.33
6.5 Parnell to Sikandar Raza, direct hit is required and AB gets it! Raza pushed the ball towards cover with soft hands and called for a quick single, Sibanda responded but AB is too quick. He reaches the ball and smashes the stumps at the striker's end to leave Sibanda way out of the crease 31/1
View dismissal Sikandar Raza c Miller b Parnell 29 41 32 4 0 90.62
8.5 holes out straight to deep point! Off side is his strong area and he was given room, he chased it and went for a lofted swish to hand it to Miller in the deep 46/2
View dismissal H Masakadza c de Villiers b Morkel 26 38 33 0 1 78.78
16.2 another one falls, easy catch for AB at cover! It was slightly full outside off, Masakadza goes for a big drive but doesn't middle it and the ball lobs towards cover where AB has to take a couple of steps towards the 30-yard circle for the catch 77/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor b Duminy 79 156 96 5 2 82.29
45.3 goes for the slog again, the equation calls for it. this time though it was an awful hoick at the cost of his balance. Didn't get anywhere close to the ball and off stump is knocked back. Mangongo and the dressing room applauds 202/9
View dismissal SC Williams c Amla b Duminy 3 15 14 0 0 21.42
19.4 thuds his bat into the turf as he walks away! Does not enjoy his walk back to the pavilion after the ball takes the inside edge, lobs off the pad and into Amla's hands at first slip. That's another delivery that went straight on, with the batsman playing for turn 85/4
View dismissal E Chigumbura* c Miller b Rossouw 13 32 32 0 0 40.62
27.5 that's short, it's been pulled... right into the hands of deep midwicket. First ODI wicket for Rossouw and he's chuffed, considering the ball he bowled. Chigumbura though was livid, slammed the bat into the turf 110/5
View dismissal MN Waller c †de Kock b Phangiso 17 32 22 2 0 77.27
35.4 lots of flitting around the crease and he ends up nicking to the keeper. He made room first, then overcompensated by moving outside off. Phangiso didn't bother about him as he flighted one just outside off stump, the batsman goes for an airy drive and the turn elicits the outside edge. De Kock makes a smart grab and he knows it 156/6
View dismissal P Utseya c Amla b Steyn 0 6 3 0 0 0.00
36.6 that's a terrific catch from the mighty Hash! Diving low to his right at first slip. This was on a good length, hurried Utseya who pokes with his bat first and then the front foot follows. Amla had his eyes on the ball all through and just about managed to hold on 157/7
View dismissal N Madziva run out (Miller/†de Kock) 3 10 11 0 0 27.27
39.2 from Phangiso, oopsy! He's sought a third run that his partner was absolutely uninterested in. Poor result for him considering he had nailed the sweep to deep square leg. Did everything right - rolled his wrists, kept it along the ground and nearly hit the gap - except look up in time to see Taylor's rather late call of no. Slips and has no chance of returning to safety 166/8
TL Chatara not out 10 35 20 1 0 50.00
View dismissal J Nyumbu lbw b Duminy 4 9 7 0 0 57.14
47.2 flighted on middle, Nyumbu goes for an across-the-line sweep. Hit in front of middle, Umpire Dar reckons it will go on to hit middle and that's all she wrote 208/10
