Kallis takes four as Zimbabwe muster 93-8
Zimbabwe failed to get out of the blocks completely and were restricted to 93 for 8 in their 20 overs.
Veteran all-rounder Jacques Kallis put in a great effort with the ball, accounting for Zimbabwe’s middle-order. He ended with figures of 4-15-4.
South Africa were boosted by the inclusion of Albie Morkel after the 31-year-old all-rounder was passed fit to play following a lower-back spasm which needed a fitness test before the match.
Zimbabwe brought in batsman Stuart Matsikenyeri and spinner Ray Price in place of Chris Mpofu and Malcolm Waller from the line-up that lost the first match against Sri Lanka by 82 runs on Tuesday.
Top two teams from each of four groups will qualify for the Super Eights rounds.
Earlier, Albie Morkel passed a fitness test on Thursday morning and was named in South Africa’s XI for their first match of the World T20, against their African neighbours Zimbabwe. Albie made up a middle order that had no space for Faf du Plessis, but included Farhaan Behardien, who has played just one T20 for the team.—AP
