Vusi Sibanda not happy with the result but considering he was down with chicken pox before the game, he's chuffed wit the guts shown by him and his teammates.

12 Aug 2014

JP Duminy up next. JP not concerned with moving swiftly to ODI cricket at Bulawayo.

He's confident with the side's preparations.

12 Aug 2014

Faf hits the winning runs!

Comes down the wicket and strikes the ball past the mid-off fielder.

12 Aug 2014

Faf off the mark and the scores are level.

12 Aug 2014

Oh no! WICKET!

Elgar gone! 21 off 28 balls.

Alviro pulls Williams for four.

Not long to go now.

12 Aug 2014

12 Aug 2014

Change of bowling for Zimbabwe.

Chatara into the attack.

12 Aug 2014

Cleanly struck shot that was.

Boom!

SA need just 20 more to win.

12 Aug 2014

Alviro Petersen really desperate to end this.

Running down the wicket but misses his expansive drive.

12 Aug 2014

Petersen not mucking about here.

Wild slog sweep attempted off (and completely missed) Nyumbu's bowling.

Intent.

12 Aug 2014

Nicely bowled there by Nyumbu.

Beats Elgar, who is coming forward with a tentative drive.

12 Aug 2014

29 more runs to go.

Or ten wickets for Zimbabwe.

Depends which way you look at it really.

12 Aug 2014

Cracking shot by Petersen!

Smashes the ball through the covers. He really climbed into that.

12 Aug 2014

Panyangara opens from the other end.

Can Alviro survive to the end?

12 Aug 2014

Richard Mutumbami has not taken his place behind the stumps.

His foot is clearly in pain.

Regis Chakabva takes over. Mind you, he is a keeper by trade anyway.

Another short ball by Nyumbu.

12 Aug 2014

12 Aug 2014

Proteas will chase 41 to win this test match.

12 Aug 2014

BOWLED HIM!

Panyangara's furniture is disturbed by Steyn.

He's gone for two.

12 Aug 2014

Steyn bounces Chatara.

He's hurt folks. Not too badly though.

12 Aug 2014

Half an appeal as Panyangara pads up to a Piedt ball.

Gaffaney says "Not out".

12 Aug 2014

Piedt's got four wickets now.

Can he pick up a five wicket haul in his debut match?

12 Aug 2014

Simple caught and bowled  by Dane Piedt to end John Nyumbu's knock of 13 (52).

12 Aug 2014

GONE! Piedt back and takes Nyumbu's wicket!

12 Aug 2014

The partnership for the 8th wicket lasted 18 overs.

Steyn welcomes Chatara with a bouncer. Obviously.

12 Aug 2014

Proteas need that wicket, Richmond Mutumbami was causing some concern.

Great knock considering his foot was hurt after his first ball.

He made 43 off 69 balls.

12 Aug 2014

GONE! Matumbami out!

Steyn gets the edge and De Kock takes the catch.
