TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.00, 87 Mins)160/6
Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Gihahn Cloete, 0.5 ov), 2-11 (Quinton de Kock, 1.3 ov), 3-52 (Faf du Plessis, 6.1 ov), 4-139 (David Miller, 16.6 ov), 5-149 (Rassie van der Dussen, 17.6 ov), 6-156 (Christiaan Jonker, 18.6 ov)
0.5 to GL Cloete, and the debutant's gone! Jarvis loves the angle across the left-hander, and his length ball on middle is not full enough to drive. Slashes at it away from his body, and the ball going across takes the outside edge. No mistake from first slip. 3/1
16.6 to DA Miller, very full, angled into middle and leg, Miller doesn't get entirely underneath and chips it to long-on who runs forward and grabs it. Began fluently and then lost it towards the end. 139/4
18.6 to C Jonker, oh, what a catch! Masakadza with a blinder at extra cover as Jonker flays this length ball. Little time to react, but the captain sticks the hands out to his right and gets down in that direction as he clings on. 156/6
1.3 to Q de Kock, top edged to deep midwicket! And this is a big wicket for Zimbabwe. Quick on off, and the length ball isn't high enough for the pull. Eventually slices a grounded pull-shot over to the leg side and Chibhabha takes a smart catch running forward. 11/2
17.6 to HE van der Dussen, reaches out to a fuller ball and doesn't find the middle of the bat. It's slower as well and he gets the timing wrong as he swats at it, sends it soaring in the air and Hamilton snaffles it at mid-off. 149/5
6.1 to F du Plessis, full outside off, and driven uppishly over the off side! Played with the spin, but the bat's face turns, and he holes out at deep extra cover. A sharp diving catch running forward sends the captain back after a flashy innings. 52/3

TOTAL17.2 Ov (RR: 7.26, 83 Mins)126
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Chamu Chibhabha, 1.4 ov), 2-11 (Hamilton Masakadza, 3.1 ov), 3-11 (Tarisai Musakanda, 3.2 ov), 4-40 (Brendan Taylor, 7.6 ov), 5-65 (Sean Williams, 11.4 ov), 6-65 (Elton Chigumbura, 11.5 ov), 7-70 (Tendai Chisoro, 12.5 ov), 8-123 (Brandon Mavuta, 15.6 ov), 9-126 (Kyle Jarvis, 16.4 ov), 10-126 (Peter Moor, 17.2 ov)
16.4 to KM Jarvis, and there goes the ninth. SA closing in. Ngidi with a pacy short of a length ball that follows the batsman backing away, hits the pad and deflects onto the stumps. 126/9
1.4 to CJ Chibhabha, yorked! Full right at the base of off stump. Chibhabha tries to wedge this away, but the ball's slid under his bat. Tahir's off for a run!. 6/1
3.1 to H Masakadza, plumb! Somebody stop Tahir. He's loving the occasion. Pumps his chest in delight. Full on off, and the googly's coming in. Masakadza looks to sweep, but he's played down the wrong line. Easy decision for the umpire. 11/2
3.2 to TK Musakanda, Tahir's on a hat-trick! Length ball outside off, and the googly gets big on him, hits his glove and lobs over to his left. The keeper spots the ball flying away from him, and he runs to his left and dives full-stretched to pocket a difficult catch. Zimbabwe in tatters.. 11/3
11.4 to SC Williams, blindly charges down the track without bothering to pick the length. Can't get to the pitch as it's in the in-between length, feebly swings at it and misses as ball crashes into middle. Tahir with a subdued celebration. Just kidding! Takes off like he's picked up a wicket for the first time in his life or something. 65/5
11.5 to E Chigumbura, and he takes flight again. My money's on Tahir for the most distance run tonight. And it's all in celebration of wickets. Googly that spins in, with the batsman completely unsuspecting, and hitting him in front of middle and leg. Five for Tahir and on a hat-trick for the second time in the night. 65/6
7.6 to BRM Taylor, QdK takes a screamer! Length ball on middle, and he backs away to ramp a shot over the keeper's head. Gets some contact off the bat, but it's been edged to the keeper's left. QDk, however, moves to his left and times his jump to perfection as the ball sticks in his left hand!. 40/4
15.6 to B Mavuta, after all the great hitting, he's picked the worst possible ball to get out. A dud of a full toss, well outside off, deserving anything but a wicket, opens up and carves it away off the outside of the bat into the hands of third man. Oh the irony!. 123/8
12.5 to TS Chisoro, that's a tame end. Chisoro has been playing some awfully weak shots and this one's as ineffective as it gets. Short ball, can't get anywhere on top of it, and so he stands and swipes and simply chips it straight into the hands of Phehlukwayo, like he's handing him a birthday present or something. 70/7
17.2 to PJ Moor, caught at long-off. For once, a mishit from PJ Moor, and South Africa aren't in the mood to look a gift horse in the mouth. Moor shovels this length ball, chips it off the outside of the bat, and Jonker holds onto the chance. 126/10
