Commentary

It wasn't close in the end, but Zimbabwe had their moments with the bat on a flat deck. Two fine innings from Chibhabha and Masakadza, but they were trumped by Smith and Bosman's onslaught. Worries for South Africa after Morne Morkel turned his ankle, but for Johan Botha, it's one win from one match as captain, and that's all that matters in the end.

Sahil Dutta's bulletin will be up here shortly, and don't forget to check out our Facebook page. Graeme Smith is Man of the Match for his game-seizing innings. Join us again at Kimberley on Sunday for the 2nd T20. From Andrew Miller, it's goodnight.

Utseya to Duminy, SIX runs, and there it is! A flowing drive over long-on, just clears the rope, and South Africa ease home with more than four overs to spare

One shot will do the job now
