Summary

South Africa and Zimbabwe are playing 3 match T20 series in South Africa. The Proteas comprehensively beat Zimbabwe in the ODI series and also were victorious in the 1st T20. Imran Tahir's five-wicket haul helped South Africa to a 34 run victory. Debutant  Rassie van der Dussen scored a half-century to put a competitive score of 160 on the board. Captain Du Plessis and David Miller also chipped in with some useful runs.

 

The Zimbabwe batting once again faltered after their bowlers had done a good job. They lost wickets in quick succession and could only score a paltry 126. Apart from Peter Moor and Brandon Mavuta, none of their batsmen could score some decent runs. They have to win this match to stay alive in the series.

 

The second T20 match will be played on October 12, 2018, at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom. The match will start at 09:30 PM IST.  We look at the squads for both the teams here.
