Zim v SA highlights today – First twenty/20 from Buffalo Park, East London (South Africa) Tuesday 9th October 2018. The opener of the team Q de Kock † faced five balls and scored five runs and out when it was, (1.3 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).
GL Cloete has gone with scoring just two runs, the captain of the team F du Plessis scored 34 runs off twenty deliveries. When his wicket dismissed then it was (6.1 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).
South Africa won the toss and elected to bat.
