    FOUR! Sean Williams to Willem Mulder. Stock ball half volley, down leg side on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs.

    Down the legside and tickled fine to the rope. The result makes it look like an easy victory for South Africa but it required plenty of grit and determination from the batsmen on a tricky wicket. The hard work was done by the bowlers though as they restricted Zimbabwe to a below-par total which was always going to be tough to defend. So that means South Africa lead the three match series 1-0 as both teams head to Bloemfontein on Wednesday.

    FOUR! Brandon Mavuta to JP Duminy. Googly half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Attempted googly but the line is just too straight. Duminy can comfortably paddle the ball around the corner for an easy boundary.

    FOUR! Sean Williams to Willem Mulder. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Top shot to end the over. Not that wide from Williams but Mulder is deep in the crease and creates a bit of width for himself to free the arms.

    OUT! Caught. Wellington Masakadza to Heinrich Klaasen. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Ervine. Can you believe it? Klaasen wanted to go over midwicket for another six but Zimbabwe have placed a man in the deep for the catch. It's not out of the middle and Klaasen has picked out Ervine perfectly.

    SIX! Wellington Masakadza to Heinrich Klaasen. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Back to back maximums. Same shot and same result, maybe this one was even bigger.
