26.1 - S Williams to W 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.
