So, just one more game left in the series before South Africa rev up preparations for Down Under. It's been 5-0 thus far, the scoreline. Can Zimbabwe get off the mark or will they head home with a clean slate? We shall know the answers on Sunday. The last and final T20I's at Willowmoore Park, Benoni. It's a day game, remember. Until next time, goodbye and good night!!

Faf: It was one of my best games so far. On a surface that wasn't really easy. Paters got the Man of the Match and obviously any of the fast bowlers could have gotten it. We did well in the final few overs, especially with the short boundaries. Few of the guys got bowled and the ball was staying low and you are not sure how much the ball is gonna bounce, but still our batters did well. There's been a lot of guys coming in and sometimes it creates a bit of a headache and it's a good one to have. Other guys getting opportunities are doing well. Looking forward to Australia. The plan is that everyone gets 2 games and that means the skipper is gonna miss out unfortunately in the next game.

Dane Paterson: Quite nice to be playing for the National side. Lots of hardwork behind the scenes, special mention must go to the bowling unit. I spoke to the coach and I needed to work on the new ball and I have been working on it for quite a while. It's just conditions I think, just hitting the good old length was the key today.

20:54 local: 133 was never going to be enough. Although it - the pitch - had some variable bounce, a disciplined bowling effort was needed, but Zimbabwe erred, sprayed it all around and failed to maintain consistency with their lengths. The outcome? They concede victory with 28 balls to spare. All the six South African batsmen got starts and four of them lost their way trying to do something fancy, but if anything, the home team will look to correct that aspect in the next game. Presentations imminent...
