    11.3 Nyumbu gets another, and it's Quinton de Kock! Nyumbu tossed it up, QDK danced down the track and packed a powerful drive on the off side but Chigumbura dives to his left and takes a spectacular catch to get the big wicket 59/2
    7.6 Nyumbu has struck! Soft dismissal for Amla, he went down on a knee to sweep it with the turn behind square on leg, but the ball came a bit slow from short of length, got his glove on the way and got the top of off and middle stump 47/1
    35.5 chipped straight to midwicket, Utseya removes the set batsman! He pitched it up towards middle stump, not giving it much flight, and Faf flicks it straight into Chigumbura's hands around waist height. 169/5
    12.1 oh my, what has AB done here?! He wanted to clip the flatter delivery as it was going down leg, but the ball only hit the keeper and fell close to him. AB thought it had gone fine and ran for a single, Mutumbami merely picked the ball up and whipped the bails off as AB was halfway down the pitch 60/3
    26.3 bowled him around his legs! It was an invitingly full ball outside leg stump, perhaps a little too much so for the sweep, which was the shot Duminy attempted. Can't get under it and it rips across to strike off stump. Big turn, big wicket! 129/4
    39.1 loud appeal for lbw and the finger's gone up! He got the yorker right this time on middle and leg, Miller came down a step and got hit on the shoe in front of middle and leg while trying to drive it on the on side but missed. Can't say for sure if it was out because of the angle, but looked very close in real time 204/6
    41.6 the crowd goes berserk, another catch has been taken! He pitched it wide outside off and seeing the room, McLaren went for a big drive on the up and handed a simple catch straight to Chigumbura at cover point 211/7
    48.3 lofts it down the ground again, this time it's going to long-off and Williams runs in a long away to take a great catch diving forward! It was full and outside off, Parnell couldn't get the middle of the bat and Williams got there just in time 252/8
    49.3 one more, Williams gets his first wicket! He pitched it up and close to Abbott, not giving him much room and Abbott lofted it a little wide of long-on and Raza ran in to take another good catch 257/9
    49.4 another good catch on the run from Zimbabwe in the deep, all over for South Africa! It was a short delivery asking to be put away and Phangiso pulled it in the air to deep midwicket where Nyumbu ran to his left to take it over his left shoulder 257/10

    7.2 timberrr! Masakadza looked like he had it covered with a push down the ground, but there was gap between bat, which came down at an angle from gully, and pad and the inside edge pings into the stumps. Reward for bowling a good length for Parnell as leg stump cartwheels 21/2
    6.6 guess AB knows better than me! This was the arm ball, skid on off the deck to smack Mutumbami below the knee-roll. Poor shot as he was looking to flick across the line. The closed bat face had no chance. 21/1
    11.5 full, angled in, seaming further as well. Raza has not read that at all, he is surprised by the movement and has ended up offered the ball free passage onto his off stump 26/3
    16.4 he flung his head down in disappointment the minute he met the ball. Raced down the track and perhaps got a little too close to it. Goes for the loft and forces it with a lot of bottom hand... right down long-on's throat 45/4
    36.2 he's holed out to mid-off! Slaps his bat down on his pad as he walks off. It was a similar ball, but this time he goes full-on with the drive and offers a simple catch to Parnell. A brave fight, and the only one from Zimbabwe's batsmen comes to an end 114/7
    21.3 bangs it in and Chigumbura hands a simple catch to mid-on! It was short and quick and rushed on to the batsman who pulled to put it away but only lobbed a sitter to Duminy. Parnell does a little jig for his second wicket 59/5
    28.4 Amla takes it at slip! It was a short of length ball well outside off, Jongwe played it late to run it fine but it was too fine and Amla leapt to his right to take a low diving catch 88/6
    41.6 up comes the finger, the batsman was dancing down the track and then whipped across the line of a straight delivery. It was a yorker that hit him on off stump and might just have gone on to clatter leg. Utseya was rushing back, thinking he would have been given the benefit and topped the off bail when his bat tickled the stumps as well 134/8
    47.3 got 'im! This was full and straight and he celebrates befitting his reputation. Punches the air and gives the departing batsman a stare. One sweep too many for Madziva 175/9
    49.1 he was walking back to collect his sweater by the time the umpire finally agreed with him. Tahir was that certain this was out. Short ball turns big outside off, Nyumbu goes for a cut and feathers a bottom edge to the keeper 196/10
