Zimbabwe in South Africa T20I Series - 2nd T20I

South Africa v Zimbabwe

South Africa won by 8 runs

1.1

SW Masakadza to Smith, no run, decent start from Masakadza, finding a good length and line, Smith crunches his big bat down in defence

1.2

SW Masakadza to Smith, no run, good delivery once again, back of a length, not giving Smith any room to free his arms

1.3

SW Masakadza to Smith, 1 wide, the length here is good but the line awry, slipping down the leg side

1.3

SW Masakadza to Smith, 2 runs, oooh, almost a dream start for Zimbabwe, it was short and a touch wide, Smith cracked an airy cut just short of third man

1.4

SW Masakadza to Smith, FOUR, too short this time and Smith has banged it to the cow-corner boundary. Really thuggish shot, bullying it away

1.5

SW Masakadza to Smith, FOUR, top shot again! Smith expecting a fuller ball charges down the wicket and clubs a drive down the ground

1.6

SW Masakadza to Smith, no run, good change of pace here, slower ball beats Smith outside off

South Africa 21/1   SW Masakadza 1-0-11-0

5.1

SW Masakadza to Duminy, 1 run, Duminy is nothing if not a man of style and he slides this down to third man with great elan

5.2

SW Masakadza to Smith, 2 runs, Smith is no man of style but has plenty of substance and over his career how many runs has he picked up like this, nudging into the leg side? Many, many I tell you

5.3

SW Masakadza to Smith, 1 run, touch too leg sided again, Duminy clips towards midwicket

5.4

SW Masakadza to Duminy, no run, nicely bowled, a touch slower and very correctly defended down the pitch

5.5

SW Masakadza to Duminy, 1 run, enough of a leg-stump line for Duminy to fiddle this towards midwicket for a single

5.6

SW Masakadza to Smith, FOUR, bosh! Smith down the wicket and clubbing through extra cover

South Africa 57/2   SW Masakadza 2-0-20-0

16.1

SW Masakadza to Miller, 2 runs, starts with a low full toss outside off, which is not the worst option, Miller clunked it down the ground via a toe-end-slitting inside edge and manages to collect a couple thanks to some excellent running

16.2

SW Masakadza to Miller, OUT, bowled him! Off stump out of the ground! Miller attempted a big swish into the leg side but found nothing but thin air and Masakadza leaps to celebrate

DA Miller b SW Masakadza 25 (31m 21b 1x4 1x6) SR: 119.04

16.3

SW Masakadza to Kuhn, 1 run, single taken, driven nicely to deep cover

16.4

SW Masakadza to Duminy, no run, nicely bowled here, good slower ball outside off, has Duminy poking suspiciously at it

16.5

SW Masakadza to Duminy, SIX, that's gone a long, long way! Duminy has clattered this over cow corner, another slower ball from Masakadza but this time Duminy was waiting for it

16.6

SW Masakadza to Duminy, no run, outside off stump, quieter end to the over as Duminy defends

South Africa 150/4   SW Masakadza 3-0-29-1

18.1

SW Masakadza to Peterson, 1 run, Peterson away, slugging a shortish ball down the ground for a single to bring Duminy back on strike

18.2

SW Masakadza to Duminy, FOUR, top work from Duminy, giving a brutal lesson to these Zimbabwe bowlers, gets a fullish ball and smashes it in front of deep midwicket for four

18.3

SW Masakadza to Duminy, 2 runs, low full toss again, Duminy powers down the wicket for another couple

18.4

SW Masakadza to Duminy, 2 runs, slower-ball bouncer, executed quite well and Duminy can't quite time it, gets a couple to deep square

18.5

SW Masakadza to Duminy, 1 run, good delivery here, yorker length that is jabbed out to long-on

18.6

SW Masakadza to Peterson, OUT, Peterson tries to reverse-dink this but it's a slower ball and he ends up lifting a gentle catch to short third man

RJ Peterson c Utseya b SW Masakadza 1 (9m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 171/6   SW Masakadza 4-0-39-2
