   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: J Theron Senwes Park, Potchefstroom (17 Oct,2010)

Zimbabwe got off to a decent start before 3 quick wickets, including that of last match’s hero Taylor, left them at 60/3 in 13 with COW of 45%. Taibu set about recovery in partnership with old horses Grant Flower and Ervine but both couldn’t convert their starts in to big scores. Once Taibu fell it took some late hitting by Dabengwa and Utseya to take them to 268 all out with a COW of 44%. South Africa were off the blocks quick in pursuit and by the time Smith was out they reached 84/1 in 13 with a COW of 60%. At this point AB joined Amla and they both went about the chase as If the target was 350+. Amla departed after yet another century but by then they were 224/2 in 34 with COW of 69%. AB continued his onslaught as he hit 5 sixes, the last one bringing up his century and finishing the match in 39 overs.
