It was al­most too easy. South Africa beat Zim­babwe by four wick­ets in the third One Day In­ter­na­tional in Paarl.

They were chas­ing 229 af­ter the Chevrons elected to bat first, and with six wick­ets lost it was still an easy win for the Proteas.

“It was good to see a few guys get­ting in and play­ing some re­ally good in­nings,” Cap­tain Faf du Plessis said af­ter the game. “Reeza [Hen­dricks] and Klaasie [Hein­rich Klaasen] played re­ally well for us.”

The bowl­ing was great in all three games, he added.

“We need three wicket-tak­ing fast bowlers and we’ve got that in Dale [Steyn], Lungi [Ngidi] and KG [Kag­iso Rabada] and they are very, very dif­fer­ent.”
