    13.6 punches extravagantly outside off. It's a poor shot, lets himself get carried away by the width on offer there and gets a thick outside edge to wide slip where Hendricks takes it to his right 38/3
    3.1 edged and taken at second slip. Fuller outside off, and Mire goes for the drive. Ends up edging it to Hendricks who makes no mistake. South Africa have struck early 10/1
    10.3 he's found the edge.. Ervine nicks off, but he doesn't seem to be too happy. And for good reason. He's not made contact. It's a length ball, very tight lines, with Mulder offering up next to no room. Ervine brings out the bat and there's a noise that was mostly bat hitting pad. Definitely no edge 28/2
    19.1 Rabada strikes, and Zimbabwe slide further. Extra bounce from a length, angled in towards middle and off and getting him to push out at it, but it nips away just enough to find the outside edge to second slip 53/5
    15.5 pays the price for flicking across the line.. this is an excellent mix of lengths from Phehukwayo. Follows the short one that squared him up with a fullish one that attacks the stumps and straightens very late to beat the closing face of the bat and crash into the pad. Looked plumb 44/4
    21.4 and gone. Just shortens his length a touch and that makes all the difference. Induces an outside edge and a good low catch by Elgar to his right. The umpires though want to be fully sure and they have referred it upstairs. The soft signal is out and the replays too confirm Elgar got his fingers underneath. Zimbabwe lose their sixth wicket 62/6
    34.1 Ngidi gets his third, and that's the end. Just a harmless chip in the air to a length ball that cuts in. Chigumbura half-heartedly plays at that and mid-on runs backwards and to his left to hold on to it 117/10
    27.5 short and Wellington goes for the pull, looks like Tahir tried to slip in a flipper there. Wellington misses and gets trapped right in front. Was it a bit high, the umpire doesn't think so and up goes the finger 86/7
    29.3 quicker one once more, the flipper. Mavuta was stuck on the back foot as the ball hit him on the pads, right in front. No doubt about this one, would have cannoned into the leg stump 96/8

    32.5 chopped on!. Short of good length delivery, cuts back in viciously, and with Jarvis scampering back, the ball hits the back elbow and falls onto the stumps 112/9

    9.6 gets him for the second time in the over, he has handed a catch straight to mid-off! A little full, it's slower at 113kmh and Markram goes for a big swing down the ground only to send it to Chigumbura for a straightforward catch. Not a no ball this time, phew 40/3
    3.1 leading edge, and taken at third man! It was full and angled across, Elgar went hard at it, trying to flick it across the line, and was too early into the stroke, resulting in the leading edge that carried all the way to the third man. Not a great return to ODIs for the left-hander 13/1
    6.3 what a beauty! Drifting in with the breeze before spinning away sharply past the outside edge as an audacious afterthought. The right-hander is drawn forward, plays for the original line, against a new ball that would normally just go on with the arm. 25/2
    21.4 gone! Against the run of play, Klaasen falls to the pull, which had hitherto been his strength. He got heaps of runs off that shot in fours and sixes, but this time was deceived by the slowness of the delivery as it held up in the pitch and he ended up dragging it to wide long-on, where he was comfortably taken 96/5
    14.3 gone! another ambitious stroke across the line without getting anywhere near the pitch of the delivery, managing to get only the inside part of the bat rather than the middle and hit it straight to midwicket. Maiden ODI wicket for the leggie 58/4
