View dismissal HM Amla* st †Taylor b Utseya 66 102 80 5 1 82.50
24.2 huge wicket there! It's not often you seen Amla get beaten completely like this! He comes down the pitch too early, is no where near the pitch of the delivery, which turns in to him. Amla sees it but it's too late for him to adjust. He is miles down the crease when the keeper whips the bails off. Some reward for good bowling from Utseya 142/1
View dismissal Q de Kock c Chatara b Utseya 76 111 76 7 1 100.00
26.4 and he is gone! Excellent one-hander by the fielder at short third-man.. It's Chatara. He looks to reverse-lap it over that fielder but just did not get enough bat on that. It still looked like it was going over but Chatara back-pedals and sticks his right hand out to pluck it. QdK.. for all it's worth.. can't score a hundred against Zimbabwe. 147/2
View dismissal F du Plessis c Sikandar Raza b Nyumbu 15 39 25 0 0 60.00
33.2 oh, Nyumbu's struck too, and he's got the big wicket! What a soft dismissal for Faf, he went back for the slightly short of length ball outside off to help it with the turn to the leg side but chipped it straight to Raza at midwicket. That stopped on him big time. Utseya is not going to take 10 afterall 163/6
View dismissal RR Rossouw c Nyumbu b Utseya 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
26.5 Rilee Rossouw! No. It has to be a tragedy if you are him! He was out for a duck in his first match and he is out for a duck here. Superb delivery though. It's tossed up, spins and Rossouw was stuck in the crease, pokes at it but can only get an outside edge. That is taken neatly by first slip 147/3
View dismissal DA Miller lbw b Utseya 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
26.6 it's a hat-trick! Utseya is on the floor.. With his teammates over him. What bowling this! Tossed up but unlike the previous ones, doesn't turn much. Miller plays outside the line hoping for the spin. But gets hit right in front. No question about that. He lies on his back and starts rolling the pedals of his imaginary bike.. Why not! Superb stuff 147/4
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Utseya 2 14 12 0 0 16.66
30.5 another one! Umpire Ian Gould waits for the appeal to die.. then raises the finger to spark the delirium again. It looked good. JP plays outside the line of this tossed up delivery.. That would have hit leg stump.. Utseya has five.. He can't do anything wrong today.. 155/5
View dismissal R McLaren b Nyumbu 6 34 20 0 0 30.00
37.5 Oh no! South Africa! Another delayed cry of joy from Zimbabweans as they realise McLaren has swept this one on to his stumps. This was headed down the leg side, and the batsman went for a sweep, got some sort of an edge to his pads but the ricochet from the pads caught his gloves and rolled back to the stumps.. Bowled round the legs.. Innocuous delivery it seemed 179/7
View dismissal DW Steyn b Nyumbu 10 40 32 0 0 31.25
41.5 this is what he has been doing! Walking across the stumps and leaving deliveries and getting wides.. This one is smacks the leg stump. Third wicket for Nyumbu 190/8
View dismissal KJ Abbott c Chigumbura b Chatara 6 25 13 0 0 46.15
43.5 he looks to get rid of the stranglehold with a big shot but gets nothing behind it! It was a back of length delivery and Abbott just lobs it to mid-off for a simple catch 195/9
View dismissal AM Phangiso c †Taylor b Chatara 13 32 19 0 0 68.42
49.5 All over! He goes for the big swing and gets a thick outside edge to the keeper. 231/10

View dismissal TMK Mawoyo run out (Miller/†de Kock) 0 11 10 0 0 0.00
2.5 Steyn to Sikandar Raza, big appeal for run out and the SA players are celebrating! Raza pushed it down towards mid-off and they ran for a very risky single, Raza might have made it on time but David Miller threw it to the keeper's end where QDK did well to whip the bails off and he was out by a mile! Mawoyo took his time to set off for the run as he was ball watching initially. Silly mistake to begin with for Zimbabwe 1/1
View dismissal Sikandar Raza c Miller b Imran Tahir 35 81 50 3 1 70.00
18.1 Tahir Tahir! Gets a wicket early on in his spell! But you have to question Raza's choice of shot. He just launches into this flighted delivery and holes out at long off. He saw the kind of bounce Tahir was getting in the previous over.. still goes on with the shot.. It hit him higher on the bat 70/4
View dismissal H Masakadza b Phangiso 25 32 33 3 1 75.75
9.4 through the defence! Phangiso drifted it in with flight on the off stump but the ball went with the angle and found the huge gap between bat and pad to strike the leg stump. Big wicket Zimbabwe have lost 43/2
View dismissal BRM Taylor b Phangiso 0 9 4 0 0 0.00
11.5 he gets another, bowled him! Drifted this flighted delivery in towards off stump, Taylor played for the turn and left the gap between bat and pad while leaning forward, and the ball sneaked through to knock the top of off stump 46/3
View dismissal SC Williams c Amla b McLaren 46 79 57 3 1 80.70
31.4 McLaren has struck! He pitched it up on the off stump and Williams flicked it straight to Amla at midiwcket for an easy catch around chest height. Williams is distraught with himself after playing that shot! 138/6
View dismissal MN Waller c Rossouw b Steyn 20 32 23 3 0 86.95
26.2 Waller's spoons it straight to deep square leg! The fielder doesn't even move. It was short and the batsman wanted to take it on, so went for the pull but didn't get the distance he would have wanted. Halfway there and half the side is gone. I can see Beyonce's image fading 116/5
View dismissal E Chigumbura* c Rossouw b Steyn 22 45 29 3 0 75.86
36.4 full toss again and this one gets a wicket! Steyn's being trying a yorker and this full toss was on the pads, Chigumbura flicked it away to the leg side but found the deep backward square leg fielder where Rossouw took a catch running in 161/9
View dismissal P Utseya c †de Kock b McLaren 5 17 9 0 0 55.55
35.1 he strikes again, and this one's caught behind! It cut in a touch after pitching on short of length and Utseya looked to run it down to third man but got an edge to de Kock who took the easy catch. Seven down now Zimbabwe 153/7
View dismissal J Nyumbu c †de Kock b McLaren 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
35.2 short ball gets the wicket this time, McLaren gets two in two! The ball jabbed in sharply and rose after pitching, Nyumbu dropped his arms but the ball touched something before being pouched by QDK and the finger went up. Replays suggest the ball touched the arm guard, not the glove. Nyumbu is unhappy 153/8
