END OF OVER:
50 | 11 Runs | ZIM: 250/6 (46 runs required, RR: 5.00)

  • T Taibu103 (112b)
  • AG Cremer1 (5b)
  • JA Morkel4-0-27-0

And that brings to an end this quite interesting day of cricket, some suprises, some dissapointing, some pleasant. Zimbabwe really put in a great effort and the two men that really steered this innings, Taibu and Matsikenyeri really have set the red lights burning bright in the Proteas camp and hopefully they will answer to these danger signs. The Proteas might have won this game by 45 runs, but it is the Zimbabweans who will go home the happier team tonight. Please join us again on Tuesday for the 2nd and last ODI with South Africa taking on Zimbabwe live from Centurion, South Africa.
