    31.3 oh dear! What's Amla done here!? Given his wicket away, that's what! Knocked to midwicket and he set off for a single that was never there, Utseya got the throw back in time to the bowler, who had Amla out well short of his ground 200/2
    7.5 gone! Where did that come from!? Length ball on and around off stump, Smith opened his body to aim a booming drive but picked out Brendan Taylor at short cover and Zimbabwe strike! 64/1

    47.4 that's all from Ingram, but what an innings it's been. Magnificent hundred on debut ends by missing a paddle-sweep and having his leg stump uprooted 331/5
    38.2 gone! de Villiers is out run out! Direct hit from Cremer has him short, despite a despairing dive! Ingram knocked it into the midwicket region looking for one but Cremer had the stumps down in a flash 240/3
    39.6 what a catch! Utseya pulls of a blinder! Horrid delivery, dragged down short, Morkel tried to slap it away through cover airily but a diving Utseya got two hands to it at diving to his right at short cover and held on securely 255/4
    49.2 good comeback from the bowler, his figures look very odd now. Lands a perfect yorker that squeezes under Miller's bat to end another excellent lower-order innings from him 346/6

    12.2 Theron strikes and Masakadza has gone! Only just. Masakadza slugged a short wide ball towards deep point where Botha spilled the original chance before holding his nerve to take it at the second attempt 70/1

    15.4 Parnell strikes! Really good delivery too, that should give him some confidence! Shortish ball that reared up at Chibhabha, the batsman thought about pulling, then thought about getting out the way but in the end did neither and it brushed the glove on the way through to de Villiers 90/2
    22.4 well, you sensed it was coming, Williams skipped down the wicket and aimed a check-drive over cover, but timed it too well and found Theron running in from long-off 122/3
    29.5 all over for Flower. The comeback ends tamely as he chips a leg-stump half-volley straight to Smith at short midwicket 158/4
    34.3 that's the end of Taibu, he was trying to up the scoring, charging down the track to try loft Both over long-off, can't clear Amla at the boundary who nearly makes a mess of a simple catch but holds on on his second attempt 179/5
    44.2 and that's not such a good one, stroking this gently to cover 246/6

Match Notes

  • Smith happy with South Africa improvement

    South Africa have been forced to experiment this series, with Jacques Kallis's calm head missing from the top of the order, and captain Graeme Smith unable to rely on the menace of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel with the ball due to a slew of injuries

  • Ingram and Amla tons set up 64-run win

    An impressive debut hundred from Colin Ingram and an equally eye-catching ton from Hashim Amla set up a 64-run win for South Africa despite Brendan Taylor's unbeaten 145

  • Ingram revels in familiar surroundings

    Bloemfontein likes to claim Colin Ingram as its own. He was born in, schooled in and discovered cricket in the Eastern Cape but he actually became a cricketer in the City of Roses. Ingram moved up country to the Free State academy when he was starting uni
