Tinashe Panyangara1027317.30295430
8.1 to HM Amla, length delivery outside off which does enough to get an inside-edge off Amla's bat and go on to hit the stumps. Just snuck through the gate really. Tinashe goes down onto the ground after and does his rendition of the Singing Bass fish (Google it folks). 21/2
Tendai Chatara1017117.10296231
3.6 to Q de Kock, great captaincy from Chigumbura as the change in field has prompted a wicket. Moved second slip earlier to a silly mid-off position, with de Kock chipping this length delivery straight to the fielder. Almost seemed to stop on him as he pushed at the ball. Zimbabwe have got one relatively early on, and the Zimbabwe fans under the scoreboard go mad with ecstasy. I suspect Firdose is somewhere in that red jamboree herself. 10/1
Solomon Mire6061010.16115320
Elton Chigumbura403017.50121221
16.6 to F du Plessis, and the Zimbabwe captain has the last laugh as he removes Faf with a leg-side delivery which the batsman feathers an edge to as he attempts in vain to glance the ball. The keeper is alert to the chance and runs full tilt to snap this one up. The Zimbabwean fans in the stands are going berserk, and South Africa are now three down within the first 20. 67/3
Sean Williams804405.50190210
Tafadzwa Kamungozi803414.25231100
20.2 to AB de Villiers, gives this plenty of air as AB doesn't hesitate to go after him, because, after all, he is AB. Lifts this one high over long off, but doesn't have all of it as Ervine, skirting the boundary rope, is able to take the catch with his left hand, then, realising he was going over, leaps in the air while throwing the ball back over to the field of play, and then stepping back once he has gathered himself to complete the take as it came down. Wonderful presence of mind and fielding effort on the boundary as the old adage is proven once more: Catches win matches. The quintessential hokey pokey. 83/4

Vernon Philander803023.75313030
6.2 to Sikandar Raza, and Philander gets things going for South Africa with a length delivery on a tighter line closer to off stump as Raza ends up chopping this one onto the stumps, with his feet rooted in place. Raza's brief stint comes to a close. 32/1
47.1 to SF Mire, AB pops up again in the deep as Philander has got them just one away now as Mire, looking to smash every remaining delivery out of the park, ends up pulling this towards de Villiers at deep midwicket, who puts in a wonderful forward dive to catch him in the deep. Ends a very entertaining cameo from Mire. Will be great to see more pyrotechnics from him as this tournament wages on. 272/9
Morne Morkel8.214925.88326220
36.1 to BRM Taylor, and the drinks break claims yet another victim as Taylor has to go now with a halfhearted slog to this slower delivery on middle and leg. Taylor goes for a well-played 40 as this chase threatens to get away from them. 214/4
48.2 to TL Chatara, and with a simple return chance to this full delivery on middle, Morkel has snapped up the final scalp to give South Africa a 62-run victory in the end. 277/10
Dale Steyn906417.11289200
42.6 to CR Ervine, short ball which rushes on Ervine as he ends up offering a simple top-edge chance to mid-on, who snaps it up gleefully. Ervine has to go and Zimbabwe in the doldrums now at 240 for 7. 240/7
Farhaan Behardien504008.00113210
Jean-Paul Duminy804515.62224120
37.4 to SC Williams, top-edge which goes straight up in the air as the keeper calls this one before completing the catch safely. Really didn't go anywhere at all. Looks like the pressure is starting to get to them now. 218/5
Imran Tahir1003633.60343010
23.6 to CJ Chibhabha, and Tahir makes the crucial breakthrough for South Africa as Chamu departs the oval after mishitting a slice over extra-cover, with this one dying just before the rope where the fielder was staioned. JP is able to keep himself within the playing field and take this. Ends a spirited knock from the Zimbabwean opener. 137/2
32.6 to H Masakadza, Tahir has landed the big one as he removes Hamilton with one which turns away as the batsman looked to get it away through midwicket before offering a leading edge which spoons harmlessly to Amla at cover, who takes it with glee. Leaves the oval with 80 to his name, and it really has been an inspired knock under pressure. 191/3
43.5 to T Panyangara, AB pulls off another special catch in the ring as Tahir claims yet another at Seddon Park, getting Tinashe to provide a leading edge to this attempted sweep, with AB running full tilt from backward square to complete the take. 245/8
