South Africa won by 10 wickets (with 44 balls remaining)
20 September 2012 - night match (20-over match)

M Morkel to Sibanda, OUT, bowled him! An off drive misses and off-stump is flicked, a fuller ball enticing the drive and it nipped back through the gate, perfect delivery, hits where the text book tells you to

V Sibanda b M Morkel 0 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 2/1   H Masakadza 2* (7b)   M Morkel 0.4-0-1-1

M Morkel to Taylor, OUT, pretty much the same stroke but this is edged behind and de Villiers takes it comfortably going to his right at around waist height, Taylor was reaching for it, not in control of the stroke and got a thin nick

BRM Taylor c †de Villiers b M Morkel 4 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Zimbabwe 6/2   H Masakadza 2* (13b)   M Morkel 1.2-0-4-2

JA Morkel to Masakadza, OUT, and now tries to go down the ground and puts it straight to mid on. Tried to lift a length ball over the top but got too much air on it and nowhere near enough length, chipping it to mid on for a simple catch

H Masakadza c Levi b JA Morkel 6 (23m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.29

Zimbabwe 16/3   CR Ervine 6* (4b 1x4)   JA Morkel 0.4-0-5-1

Kallis to Matsikenyeri, OUT, down the wicket and slapped straight to extra cover got it high on the bat and it went directly to the fielder at chest height where the catch was comfortably taken, can't blame the batsman for trying to force the pace but the execution again lacking

S Matsikenyeri c Peterson b Kallis 11 (25m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 61.11

Zimbabwe 51/4   CR Ervine 25* (22b 3x4)   JH Kallis 0.4-0-0-1

Kallis to Chigumbura, OUT, full and straight and plumb lbw first ball the batsman was nowhere near it. Fired it at the pads, full onto middle and leg and Chigumbura was caught on the crease, his attempted defensive stroke was a few years too late

E Chigumbura lbw b Kallis 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 51/5   CR Ervine 25* (22b 3x4)   JH Kallis 0.5-0-0-2

Kallis to Cremer, OUT, short ball, hooked at and gloved to the keeper, a third wicket for Kallis and this is now his best return in T20Is. Simply too quick with the bumper that went through around a middle and leg line, a thin glove to de Villiers' at head height

AG Cremer c †de Villiers b Kallis 6 (16m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Zimbabwe 60/6   CR Ervine 28* (28b 3x4)   JH Kallis 1.4-1-2-3

Steyn to Utseya, OUT, short down the leg side, off the glove and a cracking diving catch from de Villiers going to his left, once again a Zimbabwean completely undone by pace and accuracy but what a catch from the keeper, superb take a full stretch

P Utseya c †de Villiers b Steyn 5 (14m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Zimbabwe 75/7   CR Ervine 36* (38b 4x4)   DW Steyn 3.5-0-9-1

Kallis to Ervine, OUT, a bit of extra bounce, takes the edge and de Villiers takes his fourth catch going comfortably to his left-hand side, another wicket for Kallis too! Remarkable performance from him, the ball got big on the batsman who tried to run it down to third man

CR Ervine c †de Villiers b Kallis 37 (71m 40b 4x4 0x6) SR: 92.50

Zimbabwe 77/8   RW Price 1* (3b)   JH Kallis 2.4-1-5-4
