Zimbabwe bowls 1st against South Africa in triangular series

  • Print

HARARE, Zimbabwe - Zimbabwe won the toss and again decided to bowl first in a triangular-series one-day international against South Africa on Friday.

The Harare Sports Club pitch has favoured the teams batting second, and Zimbabwe will hope to restrict South Africa to an achievable target in the third game of the tournament.

South Africa made three changes to the team which won its previous game against Australia, with captain AB de Villiers and seamers Wayne Parnell and Morne Morkel replaced by Rilee Rossouw, Kyle Abbott and Aaron Phangiso. Hashim Amla stands in as skipper for De Villiers, who has a viral infection. Morkel has a shoulder injury.

Zimbabwe changed two from the team that lost to Australia in the series opener: batsman Malcolm Waller and seamer Brian Vitori replace wicketkeeper-batsman Richmond Mutumbami and bowler Tinashe Panyangara. Brendan Taylor is wicketkeeper in Mutumbami's place.

South Africa showed that it appears to be easier to bat second in Harare when it chased down Australia's formidable 327-7 to win the first meeting between the top big teams in the tournament on Wednesday.

Top-order batsman Rossouw gets another chance after being run out for a duck on his ODI debut in the recent bilateral series between South Africa and Zimbabwe. Phangiso's inclusion gives South Africa three spin options along with Imran Tahir and JP Duminy.

Zimbabwe has lost six one-day games in a row at home, including two to Afghanistan.
