Charl Langeveldt904925.44336120
31.5 to CR Ervine, gone this time! Ervine tries to repeat the shot but Langeveldt, the canny old fellow he is, held it back a fraction, delivering a slower-ball bouncer, Ervine through the shot too early and top-edged straight to mid-on. 155/5
43.1 to T Taibu, oh dear. Taibu's gone! Or has he? Simple enough outside edge, went low to Theron at short third man who claimed the catch. The South African's were celebrating by Taibu hangs around. Eventually he's sent on his way and it ends an excellent innings.. 228/7
Lonwabo Tsotsobe905005.55295050
Wayne Parnell815226.50233240
12.6 to CJ Chibhabha, Parnell strikes this time! Zimbabwe tottering now! Trying to run this down to third man but the touch of extra bounce and pace did for him and a de Villiers snaffles the faint edge. 60/3
47.4 to P Utseya, gone this time! hits this one on leg straight to the man at square leg, he wanted to go much squarer, but it came of the inside half of the bat, end of a breezy little knock from Utseya. 262/9
Rusty Theron8.204455.28233100
11.4 to BRM Taylor, Theron strikes! Good change from Smith and it's the big wicket! Taylor defeated by a change of pace - he tried to hoik into the leg side but only managed a top edge that sailed behind him down to de Villiers who pouched it easily. Big breakthrough. 59/1
11.6 to SC Williams, gone first ball! Theron has two! Pushed across the left-hander, Williams poked at it with no foot movement at all and got a faint edge behind. What an over!. 60/2
38.5 to E Chigumbura, Theron strikes again! Just when Zimbabwe were building a stand. Chigumbura gets some width but it's a slower ball which finds an inside edge that goes onto the stumps. 195/6
46.3 to KM Dabengwa, lovely, lovely slower one from Theron, cut away from outside leg stump, Dabengwa tried to work it on the on side, the bat face closed early, and the top edge balloons to the left of de Villiers who accepts his fourth catch of the innings gleefully. 251/8
48.2 to AG Cremer, there's no need for the appeal this time, as another beautifully bowled slower one cleans up Cremer, it was short of a good length outside off and came back in ... ever so slowly ... to go past his cross-batted swipe and hit the top of off stump, and thats a fifer for Rusty, in only his second ODI, well done. 268/10
Robin Peterson1004304.30230010
Jean-Paul Duminy402215.5081010
21.3 to GW Flower, and he is gone! it was flighted on the middle stump, he again skipped down the track, was completely beaten in flight, and turned to hear the death rattle behind him, JP strikes. 107/4

33.2 to HM Amla, gone this time though! Flicked powerfully straight to short midwicket. Ends another brilliant Amla knock. 223/2
Elton Chigumbura403318.2574000
12.5 to GC Smith, Smith goes, backing right to leg before the ball had even be delivered. This one was just held back a touch by Chigumbura, Smith was through the shot too soon and a swirling top edge landed safely in Dabengwa's hands at mid-off. 84/1
