South Africa vs Zimbabwe, One-off Test, Day 2 at Port Elizabeth, Highlights: As It Happened

SA vs ZIM: Aiden Markram hit his second century in three Test matches and Morne Morkel produced a devastating spell of new ball bowling as South Africa took command on the first day of a four-day, day-night Test against Zimbabwe at St George's Park on Tuesday. Markram's innings of 125 was the mainstay of South Africa's 309 for nine declared before Morkel, bowling at high pace under lights in South Africa's first home floodlit Test, took the first three wickets to leave Zimbabwe reeling at 30 for four at the close. Morkel trapped Hamilton Masakadza leg before wicket with the first ball of Zimbabwe's innings, dismissed Chamu Chibhabha for six with the help of a blinding catch by Temba Bavuma at fourth slip and had Brendan Taylor caught behind for the second duck of the innings. Vernon Philander followed up by trapping Craig Ervine leg before for four. New cap Ryan Burl showed resolve in batting through to the close on 15 not out while Morkel had figures of three for 20. With South Africa losing five wickets for 58 runs after the dinner break, a total of nine wickets fell for 88 runs in a two-and-a-half hour floodlit session.
