Match Notes

  • One-man army

    Neil Manthorp on Andy Flower and the art of the two-fingered salute

  • South Africa take Harare Test despite Flower's heroics

    Andy Flower became only the second batsman in Test history, after Jimmy Sinclair of South Africa against England in 1898/99, to score more than half his team's entire run aggregate in both innings of a Test match when his side was bowled out twice

  • Flower's long vigil continues to frustrate South Africa

    Andy Flower, a giant among pygmies, again played the role of Horatius on the bridge, frustrating the might of South Africa as they attempted to wrap up the First Test match against Zimbabwe in four days

  • Flower show in Harare as Andy keeps South Africa at bay

    A superb tenth Test century by Andy Flower was the highlight of the third day's play at Harare Sports Club, but despite his efforts Zimbabwe, whose batting closely resembled the legendary curate's egg, were forced to follow on after being dismissed

  • South Africa continue to dominate Test against Zimbabwe

    Jacques Kallis starred with bat and ball as South Africa built up an impregnable position against Zimbabwe on the second day of the First Test at Harare Sports Club
