2.5 big appeal for run out and the SA players are celebrating! Raza pushed it down towards mid-off and they ran for a very risky single, Raza might have made it on time but David Miller threw it to the keeper's end where QDK did well to whip the bails off and he was out by a mile! Mawoyo took his time to set off for the run as he was ball watching initially. Silly mistake to begin with for Zimbabwe 1/1
    18.1 Tahir Tahir! Gets a wicket early on in his spell! But you have to question Raza's choice of shot. He just launches into this flighted delivery and holes out at long off. He saw the kind of bounce Tahir was getting in the previous over.. still goes on with the shot.. It hit him higher on the bat 70/4
    9.4 through the defence! Phangiso drifted it in with flight on the off stump but the ball went with the angle and found the huge gap between bat and pad to strike the leg stump. Big wicket Zimbabwe have lost 43/2
    11.5 he gets another, bowled him! Drifted this flighted delivery in towards off stump, Taylor played for the turn and left the gap between bat and pad while leaning forward, and the ball sneaked through to knock the top of off stump 46/3
    31.4 McLaren has struck! He pitched it up on the off stump and Williams flicked it straight to Amla at midiwcket for an easy catch around chest height. Williams is distraught with himself after playing that shot! 138/6
    26.2 Waller's spoons it straight to deep square leg! The fielder doesn't even move. It was short and the batsman wanted to take it on, so went for the pull but didn't get the distance he would have wanted. Halfway there and half the side is gone. I can see Beyonce's image fading 116/5
    36.4 full toss again and this one gets a wicket! Steyn's being trying a yorker and this full toss was on the pads, Chigumbura flicked it away to the leg side but found the deep backward square leg fielder where Rossouw took a catch running in 161/9
    35.1 he strikes again, and this one's caught behind! It cut in a touch after pitching on short of length and Utseya looked to run it down to third man but got an edge to de Kock who took the easy catch. Seven down now Zimbabwe 153/7
    35.2 short ball gets the wicket this time, McLaren gets two in two! The ball jabbed in sharply and rose after pitching, Nyumbu dropped his arms but the ball touched something before being pouched by QDK and the finger went up. Replays suggest the ball touched the arm guard, not the glove. Nyumbu is unhappy 153/8
    not out
    38.3 he's gone now, easy catch for QDK over his head! Steyn banged one in again and this was around off, Vitori looked for the upper cut but managed an outside edge behind the stumps 170/10
