BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shaun Pollock812513.12342010
4.6 to V Sibanda, that pitches just on line, gets just enough movement off the seam, gets the edge of the defensive bat, and a very good catch by Smith at 2nd slip, low and to his right. 21/1
Makhaya Ntini813204.00364100
Morne Morkel1013313.30443050
18.6 to T Taibu, draws Taibu forward just on the off, angled in, has to play, movement takes the ball away, takes the edge for de Villiers, keeping today, to take a simple catch. 68/3
Johan van der Wath905916.55296220
49.2 to T Maruma, bowler relies with the reverse swinging yorker that thuds into the pad, appeal is upheld by Tiffen but South AFrica may be lucky with that one looking to be sliding down the leg. 196/9
Vernon Philander821521.87380100
21.4 to SC Williams, WHAT A CATCH, Williams gets one sliding across him, goes on the drive, gets the edge, the old man Pollock takes off to his left, dives full length to snatch a one handed left hand catch out of the air. 71/4
21.5 to S Matsikenyeri, Matsikenyeri is drawn well forward on the front foot, a touch outside off, the off cutter bites, slips through between bat and pad and sends the off stump flying. 71/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Chris Mpofu803914.87315010
0.4 to LE Bosman, gets a beauty, angled in, good bounce and leaves Bosman off the pitch, pushes at it from the crease, no foot movement helps the regulation edge to the keeper, great start for Zimbabwe. 1/1
Gary Brent932803.11373000
Elton Chigumbura804015.00305021
17.5 to GC Smith, third time lucky for the bowler, gets Smith playing forward to a slower ball, Smith checks the shot too late and pushes the ball, in the air, back down the pitch for Chigumbura to hold on to a one handed catch. 73/2
Prosper Utseya1003223.20371001
35.1 to GH Bodi, around the wicket, gets forward, great length, turns away from the bat, Bodi follows, gets the edge and taibu takes, appeals all round but Bodi is already walking, no need for Tiffen to even raise a finger. 147/3
37.4 to JP Duminy, short ball, turns back as Duminy shapes up for an aggressive pull, misses as the ball stays slightly down, into the pad, and the finger is up. 155/4
