zimbabwe tour of south africa

wednesday (3rd October): Zimbabwe needs 199 runs to win in the 2nd ODI against South Africa at Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein.

Dale Steyn right arm fast bowler Struck 8 Fours and 1 six during his 85 ball knock of 60 and added 75 runs Partnership with Andile Phehlukwayo (28).

After winning the toss South Africa opted to bat first and put defendable runs on the board because the pitch was good for bowling and it will be more difficult while chasing. again a flop show from South Africa openers and they lose their 1st wicket in the second over, deal agar scored only 4 runs and gave his wicket to Chatara. Heinrich Klaasen, who impressed in the first ODI made only 1 run in 13 balls.

Middle order once again struggled and  Zimbabwe's bowlers bowled with discipline to reduce South Africa to a precarious 101 for 7, Dale Steyn joined the team and he made a 70 runs partnership with Andile due to which team reached to 198 all out in only 47.3 overs.

on the other side, Chatara took 3 wickets and Jarvis,Tripano Marvuta took 2 wickets each.

Unless the dew factor comes into play, Zimbabwe batsman not have to lose wickets because for chasing these totals against a brilliant bowling attack team they will need a Partnership.
