South Africa: 171/3 | Overs 27.2 | David Miller 13 (11), JP Duminy 28 (45)

South Africa win the match and the series! Duminy ends it with a six! They will now look towards the triangular series which will also feature Australia. Zimbabwe’s performance has been disappointing to say the least. Barring a few good individual performances, they’ve struggled to put much pressure on the visitors. Hopefully, the triangular series will see them perform better.


South Africa: 144/3 | Overs 24 | David Miller 0 (1), JP Duminy 14 (35)

Quinton de Kock hits one straight to Sean Williams and is dismissed for 84. South Africa are in a comfortable position though, and will not look to slow down their scoring rate. David Miller comes out to bat, and South Africa take the Powerplay.


South Africa: 119/2 | Overs 21 | Quinton de Kock 66 (68), JP Duminy 7 (25)

De Kock brings up his half-century with ease. What a player he is turning out to be for the Proteas. Duminy seems to be in no hurry to score runs. The Zimbabwean bowlers are not putting up a fight and seem like they want the match to get over sooner than later. Just 47 more runs required now.


South Africa: 89/2 | Overs 16 | Quinton de Kock 41 (52), JP Duminy 4 (11)

Du Plessis departs but he has done his job. Sean Williams provided the breakthrough. Runs are coming at a steady rate for the visitors, and they need just 77 more runs to clinch victory here.

OUT! Faf du Plessis b Williams 40 (49)


South Africa: 66/1 | Overs 9 | Quinton de Kock 24 (30), Faf du Plessis 38 (23) 

Faf du Plessis is dealing in boundaries! South Africa look in a hurry to finish and wrap up the series. Tafadzwa Kamungozi is bearing the brunt, as he is dispatched for 24  runs in his two overs. In the absence of Amla, de Kock is playing the anchor role.


South Africa: 24/1 | Overs 4 | Quinton de Kock 15 (16), Faf du Plessis 6 (7)

Oh dear, oh dear! Rilee Russouw is out for a duck on debut! A sad day for him. South Africa though should coast comfortably towards the target considering the batting line-up they have.

OUT! Rilee Russouw run out 0 (2)


Zimbabwe: 165 | Overs 39.5 | Tinashe Panayangara 0 (12)

It’s all over. Chigumbura fails to get a century. Marchant de Lange does the trick! It was a great knock by the skipper though, especially the hitting towards the end.

OUT! Elton Chigumbura b de Lange 90 (122)


Zimbabwe: 161/9  | Overs 39 | Elton Chigumbura 86 (117), Tinashe Panayangara 0 (12)

Zimbabwe lose quick wickets, but Chigumbura manages to hit some runs as Zimbabwe take the Power Play. He is approaching his hundred now. The final wicket partnership is turning out to be a good one for the hosts, but it may just be a case of ‘too little, too late’.

OUT! T Kamungozi lbw b Shezi 1 (4)

OUT! John Nyumbu c du Plessis b Parnell 0 (1)

OUT! Prosper Utseya b Parnell 2 (5)


Zimbabwe: 114/6  | Overs 33 | Elton Chigumbura 48 (100), Prosper Utseya 2 (3)

Another one bites the dust! Luke Jongwe joins the list of batsman who’ve failed to get going for Zimbabwe. Meanwhile, Elton Chigumbura is nearing his half century. It’ll be a valiant knock by the captain, but most probably it’ll be in a losing cause.

OUT! Luke Jongwe lbw b Abbott 2 (14)


Zimbabwe: 109/ 5  | Overs 30 | Elton Chigumbura 45 (91), Luke Jongwe 2 (8)

Malcolm Waller walks back to the pavillion without making an impact. This game is becoming more and more one-sided as the overs are passing by. Skipper Elton Chigumbura is watching the carnage from one end.

OUT! Malcolm Waller c de Kock b de Lange 2 (16)


Zimbabwe: 91/4  | Overs 25 | Elton Chigumbura 35 (74), Malcolm Waller 0 (12)

Sean Williams is gone! He has been bowled off an Aaron Phangiso delivery. Zimbabwe look in serious trouble, and they may not be able to post a competent total. Malcolm Waller walks into bat. For South Africa, debutant Shezi has bowled economically so far conceding just 8 runs in his first five overs.

OUT! Sean Williams b Phangiso 17 (37)


Zimbabwe: 85/3  | Overs 20 | Elton Chigumbura 15 (33), Sean Williams 32 (59)

Williams has batted slowly, and Zimbabwe’s scoring rate has dipped after the dismissal of Sikandar Raza. Mthokozisi Shezi, bowled his first over in international cricket, and it went for three runs. A lot is riding on these two batsman, and the hosts will let the match slip if these two don’t combine to form a big partnership.


Zimbabwe: 63/3  | Overs 13 | Elton Chigumbura 23 (40), Sean Williams 3 (10)

Raza throws his wicket away! He was playing so well, but has failed to get a good score. Sean Williams, who had said that the top order needed to chip in after the second ODI, comes in to bat. Williams has been Zimbabwe’s man-in-form in the series, scoring half-centuries in both the first and the second ODI.

OUT! Sikandar Raza c Phangiso b McLaren 30 (24)


Zimbabwe: 50/2  | Overs 10 | Elton Chigumbura 19 (34), Sikandar Raza 26 (22)

Chigumbura and Raza have held fort for Zimbabwe after the early exits of both the openers. The ninth over was especially good for the hosts, with 14 runs coming from it.


Zimbabwe: 4/2  | Overs 2 | Elton Chigumbura 1 (2), Sikandar Raza 0 (5)

Zimbabwe are imploding right at the top, with both openers being dismissed early. Richmond Mutumbami is dismissed in the first ball he faces, by Marchant de Lange while Hamilton Masakadza is sent back to the dressing room by Kyle Abbott.

OUT! H Masakadza lbw b Abott 4 (3)

OUT! R Mutumbami c Rossouw b de Lange 0 (1)



South Africa have won the toss and elected to field.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog of the third One-Day International (ODI) between Zimbabwe and South Africa at Bulawayo. I am Sameer Jha and I will be bringing you the live updates of the match. Zimbabwe were convincingly defeated in the first two ODIs of the series, despite the visitors missing some of their key bowlers.

Hashim Amla, who scored a terrific century in the first ODI will be rested in this match. He’ll return to open the batting for Proteas in the triangular series which will also feature Australia.

For the hosts, only Sean Williams has been impressive – scoring half centuries in both matches. They will definitely need more contributions in the third ODI, if they wish to defeat South Africa.
