18.5 Theron to Coventry, swished down to long on, and there wasn't ever two runs in that shot. Sure enough, the direct hit does the job, to end a brilliant innings from Masakadza 150/4
View dismissal BRM Taylor lbw b Parnell 0 19 5 0 0 0.00
4.4 beautiful delivery, a slower-ball yorker, looping above the eyeline before striking Taylor flush in front of middle. The end of an innings that never had a chance to get started 20/1
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha c Botha b Parnell 52 34 32 6 2 162.50
13.1 Parnell returns to the attack with instant impact. A short ball, but Chibhabha's pull spirals off a top-edge, and after jinking round the square-leg umpire, Botha holds onto a simple chance 96/2
View dismissal E Chigumbura* b Theron 10 13 8 1 0 125.00
16.3 cracking delivery, inswinging yorker, and the leg stump is plucked out of the ground! That's his maiden international wicket, well done him 117/3
