Zimbabwe vs South Africa Live Cricket Score - 3rd ODI Match - Summary

End of Over : 45.5 SA: 231/6

A good game for both teams, in their own respect. South Africa's batting order managed to do well, while Zimbabwe put in an improved performance on the whole. The problem for both remains the same - the batting. It's something they would like to work on before the T20I series starts. The first game begins on 9th October, at 1800 local (1600 GMT). We hope you join in for that. Cheers!

45.5 4

FOUR! And he finishes it off in style! SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 4 WICKETS! Dale Steyn stands tall to this fullish length ball and hammers it aerially past mid off. No stopping that, it's hit too straight, the ball races away to the boundary line. A good series victory for the Proteas, they win it 3-0. And this is the 10th consecutive loss for the visitors in ODIs.

45.4 0

Pushes this length delivery to cover-point. A slight miscommunication between the two but eventually no harm done.

45.3 0

Big swing and a miss! Length delivery outside off with a lot of room on offer, Steyn throws everything at it only to connect with thin air.

45.2 W

OUT! Edged and taken! He was hurt on 0, dropped on 0 and caught out on 0 as well. It's the slower one again which does the trick. Angles across a back of a length ball, it's the slower one and Phehlukwayo rises to punch this on the up. Nicks it behind and Taylor dives to his left to take a simple catch.

Zondo waits for the ball to come and cuts it late down to third man for a single.

44.2 0

Dropped! Simplest of catches and it's Sean Williams of all people who puts it down. Slower length ball on off, Phehlukwayo doesn't pick it up and as a result lofts it towards Williams at covers. He dives forward low, gets his hands to it but spills it.

Short of a good length outside off, punched through the gap on the off side for a run.

Makes sweet connection but finds the fielder. Phehlukwayo drives it firmly to covers.


Zimbabwe are currently touring South Africa for 3 match ODI series. South Africa clinched the series with a dominating 120 run victory in the second ODI. It was a surprise to see the mighty South African batting struggle against the Zimbabwe attack. They were struggling at 101-7 at one point but managed to recover to score 198 runs. But the bowlers did their job to restrict the Zimbabwe team.


Zimbabwe skipper Hamilton Masakadza was upset with his side's display and will be looking for some pride in the series. The Zimbabwe batsman have to pull up their socks to let their bowlers have a go against the inexperienced South African Batting.


The last ODI will be played on October 6 at Boland Park, Paarl. The match will start at 4:30 PM IST. Let us take a look at the squads of both the teams.


Zimbabwe Squad: Hamilton Masakadza (c), Tendai Chatara, Elton Chigumbura, Craig Ervine, Kyle Jarvis, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Wellington Masakadza, Brandon Mavuta, Solomon Mire, Peter Moor, Ryan Murray, Richard Ngarava, Brendan Taylor, Donald Tiripano, Sean Williams
