Zimbabwe Twenty20 Triangular Series - Final

Zimbabwe XI v South Africa XI

Zimbabwe XI won by 9 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)

0.1

Jarvis to Levi, OUT, on the money first up! Jarvis brings that in from slightly wide of the crease, Levi doesn't move his feet at all and he is struck on the front pad. It's a good, full ball, and a confident shout, that's given out. Levi is very unhappy, walks off shaking his head. Zimbabwe over the moon.

RE Levi lbw b Jarvis 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

0.2

Jarvis to Ingram, 1 run, full again but not as close to the toes and Ingram drives into the covers, good fielding keeps it down to just one, South Africa on their way

0.3

Jarvis to Amla, 1 run, Jarvis keeps it full, showing some decent control against the left-right combo and Amla drives to mid-off

0.4

Jarvis to Ingram, no run, beats the bat this time, outside off and moving a touch away, Ingram thinks about chasing it, good carry as well through to Taylor

0.5

Jarvis to Ingram, no run, more movement here, outside off and kept going, Ingram wisely leaves alone

0.6

Jarvis to Ingram, 1 leg bye, on leg-stump line and played off the hips into the leg-side, ends a good over from Jarvis

South Africa XI 3/1   KM Jarvis 1-0-2-1

2.1

Jarvis to Ingram, 1 run, full and width on offer there, Ingram just sticks the bat out and helps it on its way to third man, Du Plessis to face his first ball now

2.2

Jarvis to du Plessis, no run, oh, Du Plessis has come a little way down the pitch and tries to flick that away on the leg-side, gets some bat, some pad and it veers into the off

2.3

Jarvis to du Plessis, no run, full and moves away, left alone to the sounds of Zimbabwe's crowd signing their famed "hey, hey, hey" song

2.4

Jarvis to du Plessis, 1 run, full and on leg-stump, Du Plessis moves to the off side and plays that to short fine leg, he has his first run

2.5

Jarvis to Ingram, 1 run, excellent delivery from Jarvis, full and on leg-stump, there's a stifled appeal but it seems Ingram has got a little tickle of the willow, if he hadn't he may well have been a goner

2.6

Jarvis to du Plessis, 1 run, yorker-length and it surprises Du Plesiss. He falls over as he digs it out to deep backward square, that's three overs with not a single boundary, good work from Zimbabwe

South Africa XI 13/2   KM Jarvis 2-0-6-1

16.1

Jarvis to Morkel, 2 runs, driven to long-off and good running ensures two, if they can't find the boundary, may as well create pressure this way

16.2

Jarvis to Morkel, 2 runs, full and driven past Jarvis, pin straight, Vusi Sibanda is out there and makes a sliding stop, there's two more

16.3

Jarvis to Morkel, 1 run, in the blockhold and Du Plessis can only defend, good ball but still concedes a run

16.4

Jarvis to du Plessis, 2 runs, full toss and smacked away on the leg side, Du Plessis and Morkel turning ones into twos regularly

16.5

Jarvis to du Plessis, FOUR, dinky! Du Plessis goes down on one knee and plays a chip shot, improvisation there, just evades the fielder at short fine leg and races away for four

16.6

Jarvis to du Plessis, 1 run, does it again, but its not as full this time and the ball goes along the ground, profitable over for South Africa, still on track for a total over 140

South Africa XI 116/5   KM Jarvis 3-0-18-1

18.1

Jarvis to du Plessis, 1 run, full and driven to the covers

18.2

Jarvis to Morkel, 1 run, full, driven in the air to long-off, Masakadza is there to pick it up

18.3

Jarvis to du Plessis, no run, superb from Jarvis, in the blockhole and nobody can do anything with that

18.4

Jarvis to du Plessis, OUT, Du Plessis wants to have a go, full and he is under it as he clears the front leg, the top-edge goes high and Masakadza has time to get under it and take a good catch

F du Plessis c Masakadza b Jarvis 66 (77m 57b 4x4 1x6) SR: 115.78

18.5

Jarvis to Morkel, 1 run, smacked to long-off and Taylor is madly calling for it to be thrown to the keeper's end, the fielder doesn't respond quickly enough though

18.6

Jarvis to Parnell, 1 run, driven down the ground again, just one to long-off, Jarvis has ended a good four overs

South Africa XI 129/6   KM Jarvis 4-0-22-2
