1.1

SW Masakadza to Smith, no run, good start, touch of movement into Smith who gets into a typically square position and brings his broad bat down in defence

1.2

SW Masakadza to Smith, no run, swinging away this time, Smith looks at it before shouldering arms in disgust

1.3

SW Masakadza to Smith, 1 run, Masakadza gets his line slightly wrong, feeding leg-stump and Smith tickles it round the corner

1.4

SW Masakadza to Amla, 2 runs, wow, Amla almost played an ugly shot here, normally so stylish, this time he mis-timed a slap into the leg side for a couple

1.5

SW Masakadza to Amla, FOUR, Amla is rocketing along but if you're going to bowl anywhere to him, full and wide is the worst you'd think, he smashes this through point to beat a diving third man

1.6

SW Masakadza to Amla, no run, touch of extra bounce for Masakadza and Amla defends

South Africa 16/0   SW Masakadza 1-0-7-0
3.1

SW Masakadza to Amla, no run, good line and length here, heading towards the top of off and Amla can only defend

3.2

SW Masakadza to Amla, FOUR, oops, Masakadza follows a good ball with a leg-stump half-volley that Amla flicks through midwicket for four

3.3

SW Masakadza to Amla, no run, goodness me, Amla timed that very well indeed, it rocketed to mid-off

3.4

SW Masakadza to Amla, 2 runs, slightly shorter and Amla works it off his hip to Grant Flower at square leg, Flower is sporting a thick carpet of hair, which I'm sure he didn't have a few years ago. Probably getting tips from Goochy at Essex

3.5

SW Masakadza to Amla, FOUR, lovely shot, this wasn't even that bad a ball, just back of a length, Amla got deep into his crease and punched a boundary in front of point

3.6

South Africa 36/0   SW Masakadza 2-0-18-0
5.1

SW Masakadza to Smith, no run, good first delivery from Masakadza, Smith watches carefully and defends

5.2

SW Masakadza to Smith, no run, again a good length and line and again Smith can only defend

5.3

SW Masakadza to Smith, 1 run, good sign for Smith here, driving powerfully down the ground where only a sprawling stop at mid-off prevents a boundary

5.4

SW Masakadza to Amla, no run, this is turning into an excellent over, touch of pace and bounce and Amla defends

5.5

SW Masakadza to Amla, no run, excellent cricket here, Amla wanders down the wicket and Masakadza responds by shoving in a quick bouncer, Amla jerks his head and bat out the way

5.6

SW Masakadza to Amla, no run, good finish to an excellent over, the best of the day, slower ball is calmly defended

South Africa 44/0   SW Masakadza 3-0-19-0
7.1

SW Masakadza to Smith, FOUR, Smith runs down the wicket this time and bunts this over the midwicket region to the boundary

7.2

SW Masakadza to Smith, 1 leg bye, good comeback delivery, quicker and Smith is hurried and inside-edges via the pad into the off side

7.3

SW Masakadza to Amla, FOUR, dished up full outside off stump and Amla murders it through point, the bat came down in a flash

7.4

SW Masakadza to Amla, 1 run, this time Amla stands tall and guides down to third man for a single, he looks in complete control

7.5

SW Masakadza to Smith, OUT, gone! Where did that come from!? Length ball on and around off stump, Smith opened his body to aim a booming drive but picked out Brendan Taylor at short cover and Zimbabwe strike!

GC Smith c Taylor b SW Masakadza 19 (35m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 95.00

7.6

SW Masakadza to Ingram, no run, ooh, almost gone first ball, shortish delivery down the leg side, Ingram tried to flick it away but got nothing on it, appeal from the bowler and keeper but the umpire is thoroughly disinterested

South Africa 64/1   SW Masakadza 4-0-28-1
9.1

SW Masakadza to Ingram, no run, Ingram looks like he's wants to bed himself in here, watching everything carefully and defending

9.2

SW Masakadza to Ingram, 1 run, this is a tidy shot, worked neatly into the square-leg region for a single

9.3

SW Masakadza to Amla, 1 run, slower ball that Amla waits for patiently before deflecting into the leg side for another single

9.4

SW Masakadza to Ingram, FOUR, that will give Ingram some confidence, gets a full ball first up and nails a straight drive down the ground for four

9.5

SW Masakadza to Ingram, no run, slightly shorter from the bowler this time, Ingram gets back and punches to cover crisply

9.6

SW Masakadza to Ingram, 1 run, worked off the hip for a single down to fine leg

11.1

SW Masakadza to Ingram, no run, overpitched to begin the over, crisply driven down back to the bowler

11.2

SW Masakadza to Ingram, 1 run, Masakadza corrects his length, but the line is far enough outside off to allow Ingram to open-face guide to third man

11.3

SW Masakadza to Amla, 1 run, clipped into the leg side neatly by Amla, he looks in fine, fine touch

11.4

SW Masakadza to Ingram, no run, Ingram stands tall to defend a shortish ball

South Africa 89/1   SW Masakadza 6-0-37-1
39.1

SW Masakadza to Ingram, FOUR, oh dear, poor start from Masakadza, full toss on leg stump with fine leg up in the ring, all the batsman has to do is get a touch on it and it's a boundary

39.2

SW Masakadza to Ingram, no run, now that's much better, yorker on leg stump that Ingram just about jabs a bat down on time. Mind you, if yorkers are the plan, a short fine leg shouldn't be

39.3

SW Masakadza to Ingram, 2 runs, slower ball on a length, Ingram tries to work it to third man where Williams makes a hash of the fielding inside the ring and allows a couple

39.4

SW Masakadza to Ingram, SIX, oh no! Awful delivery. Gentle leg-stump full toss, about shin height, Ingram bludgeons it over the rope at cow corner

39.5

SW Masakadza to Ingram, 1 run, slower ball again and cut to third man for a single

39.6

SW Masakadza to Morkel, OUT, what a catch! Utseya pulls of a blinder! Horrid delivery, dragged down short, Morkel tried to slap it away through cover airily but a diving Utseya got two hands to it at diving to his right at short cover and held on securely

JA Morkel c Utseya b SW Masakadza 1 (8m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

South Africa 255/4   SW Masakadza 7-0-50-2
41.1

SW Masakadza to Miller, FOUR, poor delivery, really poor ball, short fine leg is up and this is a short ball outside leg stump, all Miller has to do is get some bat on it and he helps it round the corner to collect a boundary

41.2

SW Masakadza to Miller, FOUR, another short ball, outside leg stump again, Miller whips a pull shot for another boundary

41.3

SW Masakadza to Miller, no run, much, much better, full, straight, dot. Difficult to get yorkers away

41.4

SW Masakadza to Miller, 1 run, not quite yorker length but good enough to restrict Miller to a single, knocked to long-on

41.5

SW Masakadza to Ingram, 3 runs, Ingram almost slashes a full, wide ball to the point boundary but it's kept inside the rope to leave him on 99

41.6

SW Masakadza to Miller, 1 run, Ingram will have to wait as Miller pushes a single down the ground to pinch the strike

South Africa 274/4   SW Masakadza 8-0-63-2
47.1

SW Masakadza to Ingram, FOUR, crash, nothing but a length delivery but Ingram clubbed it to the cow-corner boundary

47.2

SW Masakadza to Ingram, SIX, wow, this is even better, up in the slot again, Ingram clears his front leg and swings this over the ropes behind the bowler

47.3

SW Masakadza to Ingram, 2 runs, Masakadza locates something approaching a yorker and is rewarded with a drive down the ground that goes for a couple

47.4

SW Masakadza to Ingram, OUT, that's all from Ingram, but what an innings it's been. Magnificent hundred on debut ends by missing a paddle-sweep and having his leg stump uprooted

CA Ingram b SW Masakadza 124 (159m 126b 8x4 2x6) SR: 98.41

47.5

SW Masakadza to Duminy, 1 run, Duminy pops his first ball into the off side and scampers a single

47.6

SW Masakadza to Miller, 1 run, driven very studiously down the ground for a strike-stealing single

South Africa 333/5   SW Masakadza 9-0-77-3
49.1

SW Masakadza to Miller, FOUR, that will help! What a shot that is! Beautiful straight drive, arrow straight to bring up his fifty from 30 balls

49.2

SW Masakadza to Miller, OUT, good comeback from the bowler, his figures look very odd now. Lands a perfect yorker that squeezes under Miller's bat to end another excellent lower-order innings from him

DA Miller b SW Masakadza 51 (42m 31b 5x4 2x6) SR: 164.51

49.3

SW Masakadza to Botha, no run, slower ball outside the off stump, Botha can't do any damage so a valuable and rare dot ball

49.4

SW Masakadza to Botha, 2 runs, Botha tries to swing this away but get more height than distance and it loops one-bounce to long-on

49.5

SW Masakadza to Botha, 1 run, another slower ball, Botha gets back and pulls out to deep midwicket for a single

49.6

SW Masakadza to Duminy, 2 runs, South Africa do indeed reach 350, and go one better for good measure as Duminy crunches this down the ground and scampers two

South Africa 351/6   SW Masakadza 10-0-86-4
