South Africa opts for bat v Zimbabwe
The South African white-ball experiment continued when two debutants were chosen for the first of the three T20Is against Zimbabwe. Gihahn Cloete will be the first of the two international rookies to take the field when he opens the batting. South Africa won the draw and opted to establish a total at Buffalo Park in East London.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, made four changes to its XI, and looking to win its first game on the tour.
