South Africa v Zimbabwe, 2006-07

One-day internationals (3): South Africa 3, Zimbabwe 0

Zimbabwe paid a flying visit to South Africa in September 2006, and predictably lost all four matches they played - by increasingly wide margins too. After being befuddled by their first taste of Twenty20 cricket, the Zimbabweans regrouped creditably in the first one-day international. However, the second match was barely a contest, while the final one at a freezing Potchefstroom was a slaughter: Mark Boucher - dropped six times - flailed a century from only 44 balls as South Africa rocketed past 400. Jacques Kallis made his debut as South African captain throughout this series; Graeme Smith was recovering from ankle surgery.
