This better be on Foxtel.

No Hughes is interesting. Hopefully Gazza can bowl well and put his hand up for the World Cup.

Zimbabwe were bowled out for 256, Taylor top scored with 93 before falling victim to Dane Piedt who claimed four wickets on debut. Dale Styen finished with 5/46 to be the best of the bowlers.

In reply South Africa have crawled to 6/238 off 140 overs. Faf du Plessis was out for 98, Dean Elgar opened the innings with 61 while Quinton de Kock made 81. John Nyumbu has 3/119 to be the best of the Zimbabwean attack at the moment.

Zimbabwe seem to be putting in a decent effort. Good to see. The ODI's will be useful for the World Cup. I would not be sure that they are not resting Hughes for the cup. no point in burning him out with the Ashes on the back of a long summer ahead.

South Africa got to 379 before Zimbabwe were rolled for 181 in the second dig. Piedt did the damage again with four wickets with Steyn and Morne Morkel getting three apiece.

South Africa reached the target of 41 without much trouble although Dean Elgar was out two runs short of the target. In the end the Proteas won by nine wickets, Dane Piedt was Man of the Match with eight wickets on debut.

The first ODI between these sides is on Sunday.

Australia put in to bat by Zimbabwe. Looks like about 3 men and a dog in the crowd, not sure what Phil Hughes has to do to actually get a game..
