    18.5 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
    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
    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
    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

Match Notes

  • Smith fifty leads South Africa rout

    Graeme Smith's rapid half-century helped South Africa make light work of the 169 they had been set by a promising batting performance from Zimbabwe at Bloemfontein

  • 'This isn't a warm-up game' - Johan Botha

    Johan Botha, who will take over as Twenty20 captain from Graeme Smith, is not taking Zimbabwe lightly

  • Resurgent Zimbabwe face stern test

    As next-door neighbours and useful sparring partners, Zimbabwe are regular opponents in the early stages of South Africa's international season, with 20 of their previous 36 encounters taking place between late August and early November
