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

South Africa XI 0/1   HM Amla 0* (0b)   KM Jarvis 0.1-0-0-1

1.3

Mpofu to Amla, OUT, my, my, my! Zimbabwe's bowlers working to a plan here. It's short again and Amla likes to play at those. He pulls but there's a man out there at deep square leg. Malcolm Waller takes the catch and South Africa are off to a disastrous start.

HM Amla c Waller b Mpofu 3 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa XI 6/2   CA Ingram 2* (5b)   CB Mpofu 0.3-0-3-1

7.2

Cremer to Ingram, OUT, shorter and cut away, straight to short third man, no butter finger this time. Cremer seems to be holding his collarbone in a bit of pain, but for now, it doesn't matter, important wicket here.

CA Ingram c Utseya b Cremer 19 (31m 20b 1x4 1x6) SR: 95.00

South Africa XI 45/3   F du Plessis 19* (20b 2x4)   AG Cremer 0.2-0-1-1

10.4

Utseya to Ontong, OUT, what a funny wicket. Ontong feeds that back to Utseya, who gets down quickly and catches it in between his legs, Ontong hesitates a moment, not sure he is out but that's a clean catch and he has to go

JL Ontong c & b Utseya 5 (10m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

South Africa XI 62/4   F du Plessis 30* (33b 2x4)   P Utseya 3.4-0-26-1

11.3

Waller to Vilas, OUT, as he did yesterday, Waller gets a surpise wicket. Vilas wants to cut away but its not short enough. Makes some room and gets a bottom edge. It's a tricky catch for BT but he doesn't make a mistake, he has been good behind the stumps

DJ Vilas c †Taylor b Waller 2 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

South Africa XI 67/5   F du Plessis 33* (35b 2x4)   MN Waller 0.3-0-2-1

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

South Africa XI 127/6   JA Morkel 27* (21b 3x4)   KM Jarvis 3.4-0-20-2
