Zimbabwe in South Africa T20I Series - 2nd T20I

South Africa v Zimbabwe

South Africa won by 8 runs

3.1

Mpofu to Smith, FOUR, oops, don't bowl there, not with fine leg up in the circle, short and down the leg side, Smith helps it on its way for a boundary

3.2

Mpofu to Smith, FOUR, too short again, and the line is poor, Smith wheels a pull shot to the square-leg boundary

3.3

Mpofu to Smith, FOUR, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear... another short ball down the leg side, Smith gloves it down to the fine leg boundary past the hapless fielder up in the circle

3.4

Mpofu to Smith, no run, much better this time, on a length and line and Smith defends

3.5

Mpofu to Smith, no run, Smith runs outside leg stump to try and give himself room to free his arms, and in the end gives himself too much room to reach it

3.6

Mpofu to Smith, FOUR, no movement here from the batsman! Just stand and thwack! Short and wide deliveries tend to end badly for the bowler

South Africa 45/2   CB Mpofu 1-0-16-0

14.1

Mpofu to Duminy, 2 runs, overpitched first ball and driven firmly down the ground where some sprawling fielding on the boundary keeps it to two

14.2

Mpofu to Duminy, FOUR, oh lovely shot, classy stuff from Duminy, getting inside the line and lifting it handsomely to the deep midwicket boundary

14.3

Mpofu to Duminy, 1 run, slower ball, and a touch shorter too, gets a glove from Duminy down the leg side

14.4

Mpofu to Miller, 1 run, Miller drives very firmly towards the point boundary

14.5

Mpofu to Duminy, no run, bouncer to Duminy! That's what's always been his weakness, and he misses an attempted hook

14.6

Mpofu to Duminy, 1 run, much fuller this time, full toss in fact, Duminy very kindly only nudges it away for one, could have been a lot more you feel

South Africa 127/3   CB Mpofu 2-0-25-0

17.1

Mpofu to Kuhn, OUT, Kuhn falls now, sacrificing himself for the cause. Important strike there from Mpofu, found a decent length and line, Kuhn got a big top edge and was caught by Taylor on the long-on boundary

HG Kuhn c Taylor b Mpofu 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

17.2

Mpofu to Duminy, FOUR, lovely shot from Duminy! Expansive drive over cover, down on one knee and a good grimace to finish the shot

17.3

Mpofu to Duminy, 2 runs, another drive over cover, didn't get as much of this but still enough to beat the infielder and take a couple

17.4

Mpofu to Duminy, no run, fuller, yorker length, Duminy swings and misses

17.5

Mpofu to Duminy, no run, good yorker again! Nothing available for Duminy as he plays and misses. Good death bowling this

17.6

Mpofu to Duminy, 1 wide, ah good thinking, bouncer, Duminy jerks his head out the line alarmingly, but sadly for the bowler, it's called a wide

17.6

Mpofu to Duminy, FOUR, oh dear the wide has cost the bowler! The extra ball is a full toss that Duminy clatters over straight cover for four

South Africa 161/5   CB Mpofu 3-0-36-1

19.1

Mpofu to Duminy, FOUR, poor start to the final over from Mpofu - full toss, Duminy is happy, smashing it to the deep point boundary to reach his career-best T20I score

19.2

Mpofu to Duminy, SIX, wow! That is out the ground! Duminy clears his front leg and deposits this miles back over the bowler's head

19.3

Mpofu to Duminy, 1 wide, dug in much shorter, Duminy jumped to try and hook, close to a top edge so the bowler appealed, all he got from the umpire was a signal for wide though

19.3

Mpofu to Duminy, 1 run, good delivery this time, yorker length and dug out to deep cover

19.4

Mpofu to Botha, 1 run, Botha is away straight away, inside edging a drive to mid-on and scampering off for one

19.5

Mpofu to Duminy, SIX, oh that was a gift from the bowler but Duminy accepted with grace and style. Leg-stump half-volley smashed into the stands over square leg! What an innings this is!

19.6

Mpofu to Duminy, FOUR, What a finish! Duminy cracks a boundary over extra cover to finish unbeaten on 97, the highest Twenty20 international score by a South African and it's left Zimbabwe with a mammoth chase

South Africa 194/6   CB Mpofu 4-0-59-1
