Bowlers Gives South Africa to Series Win

Bulawayo: Quinton de Kock tied a one-day international record as South Africa beat Zimbabwe by 61 runs on Tuesday to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

The 21-year-old wicketkeeper-opening batsman made 38 to equal the mark of England's Jonathan Trott in reaching the landmark of 1,000 runs in only 21 one-day games.

Faf du Plessis top-scored with 55 as South Africa were bowled out for 257 in 49.4 overs after being put in to bat.

It was only the third time in 34 ODI meetings that Zimbabwe had bowled out their southern African rivals.

Out-of-form South Africa captain AB de Villiers was involved in a bizarre dismissal.

He missed a delivery from spinner Prosper Utseya and, in the mistaken belief that Richmond Mutumbami did the same, set off for a single only for the bemused wicketkeeper to run him out for one.

Sean Williams (55) then passed 50 for the second successive match but Zimbabwe were bowled out for 196 in 49.1 overs.

Paceman Wayne Parnell took three for 28 while all-rounder Ryan McLaren picked up 3 for 21.

Earlier, Zimbabwe have won the toss and opted to bowl.

South Africa are unchanged, Zimbabwe have brought in Sikandar Raza for Vusi Sibanda and Brian Vitori for Shingi Masakadza.

South Africa - Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers (Capt.), Jean-Paul Duminy, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Wayne Parnell, Imran Tahir, Aaron Phangiso, Kyle Abbott
