South Africa v Zimbabwe

South Africa won by 64 runs

12.2

Theron to H Masakadza, OUT, Theron strikes and Masakadza has gone! Only just. Masakadza slugged a short wide ball towards deep point where Botha spilled the original chance before holding his nerve to take it at the second attempt

H Masakadza c Botha b Theron 30 (48m 41b 5x4 0x6) SR: 73.17

Zimbabwe 70/1   BRM Taylor 36* (33b 5x4)   J Theron 2.2-0-10-1

15.4

Parnell to Chibhabha, OUT, Parnell strikes! Really good delivery too, that should give him some confidence! Shortish ball that reared up at Chibhabha, the batsman thought about pulling, then thought about getting out the way but in the end did neither and it brushed the glove on the way through to de Villiers

CJ Chibhabha c †de Villiers b Parnell 10 (15m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Zimbabwe 90/2   BRM Taylor 46* (43b 5x4)   WD Parnell 2.4-0-16-1

22.4

Botha to Williams, OUT, well, you sensed it was coming, Williams skipped down the wicket and aimed a check-drive over cover, but timed it too well and found Theron running in from long-off

SC Williams c Theron b Botha 10 (28m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Zimbabwe 122/3   BRM Taylor 65* (60b 6x4)   J Botha 3.4-0-14-1

29.5

Theron to Flower, OUT, all over for Flower. The comeback ends tamely as he chips a leg-stump half-volley straight to Smith at short midwicket

GW Flower c Smith b Theron 13 (26m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 54.16

Zimbabwe 158/4   BRM Taylor 82* (79b 7x4)   J Theron 5.5-0-30-2

34.3

Botha to Taibu, OUT, that's the end of Taibu, he was trying to up the scoring, charging down the track to try loft Both over long-off, can't clear Amla at the boundary who nearly makes a mess of a simple catch but holds on on his second attempt

T Taibu c Amla b Botha 13 (21m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

Zimbabwe 179/5   BRM Taylor 86* (89b 7x4)   J Botha 9.3-0-39-2

44.2

Theron to Chigumbura, OUT, and that's not such a good one, stroking this gently to cover

E Chigumbura c Morkel b Theron 23 (46m 26b 3x4 0x6) SR: 88.46

Zimbabwe 246/6   BRM Taylor 126* (122b 10x4)   J Theron 8.2-0-51-3
