    5.3 brilliant bowling! Wonderful stuff from Utseya! Draws Smith down the wicket with some flight, before dipping, going between bat and pad as Smith swings aimlessly past it and Taibu has the bails off in a flash. Marvellous piece of spin bowling! 53/1
    6.6 Masakadza strikes! This flew off a length, rearing up at Amla as he tried to run it down to third man, only managed a fine edge which Taibu snaffled gleefully 59/2
    43.5 that'll be all. Duminy departs. Another massive leg-side mow attempted, got a top edge that went very high before coming down safely into the waiting hands of mid-off 328/4
    38.4 Masakadza strikes! de Villiers falls trying to smash this over cow corner, didn't quite get hold of it and it ended up skewing off a top edge down to deep midwicket, who pouched a simple chance 278/3
    46.4 slower ball once more, but the length is good - yorker - and Morkel can't quite get the leverage to power this away, ends up toe-ending high to long-on who takes the chance 355/5

    1.5 Taylor is gone, and Tsotsobe has struck in his first over! it was short and climbing just outside off, Taylor looked to go over third man with the late upper cut, but does not get enough distance on the shot and it settles in to the hands of Theron at third man, who takes it on the boundary edge, good well-judged catch 9/1
    4.1 and another one goes! dug in short outside off, Masakadza is in no position to play the pull, but still goes ahead with the shot, and it goes straight to Rusty at mid on, Zimbabwe are struggling here 18/2
    6.3 this time he hits another full delivery straight to mid off, and a diving Amla there makes no mistake with a tumbling catch, and one more batsman perishes 30/3

    15.1 what a start! Done him all ends up. Taibu played all round a straightish ball and it went through the gate. Every batsman knows the horror that lies through the gate and Botha is delighted as it rattles the stumps 77/4

    15.6 bowled him! Through the dreaded gate again! Pitched and zipped off the track, Ervine was playing across it and it clipped the top of off stump. Botha tries to to leap to celebrate but his knee is still hurting and he ends up collapsed in a heap. Smith can't hold back his laughter! 80/5
    16.1 Rusty rattles the stumps this time! Zimbabwe collapsing! Nothing delivery, just back of a length outside off stump but a tame push finds the inside edge and it goes on to the stumps! 80/6
    20.4 Parnell strikes! Top bowling! Fired in full and straight, Dabengwa over-balanced as he tried to flick to leg, ended up in an ugly heap as he was trapped in front 97/7

    24.4 "the end is nigh," cries the commentator without a hint of hyperbole, Cremer gets a short ball but the attempted pull finds a top edge that loops gently into the hands of Amla. Good work from Parnell 106/8

    28.6 that'll be all! Theron finds some extra bounce, Nicolson ends a miserable day be gloving behind and South Africa have recorded their biggest ODI win 127/10
