South Africa bowled Zimbabwe out for 68 on the second day of the four-day, day-night Test in Port Elizabeth. It was Zimbabwe’s fifth-lowest total, and it fell short of the follow-on mark by 92 runs.

Their innings only lasted 30.1 overs, which meant they had to bat again, against a still fresh South African attack. They made a rather better start to their second innings, not losing a wicket in 13 overs before tea, though they didn’t get through that period entirely unscathed. In the fifth over, Morkel got one to bounce steeply at Hamilton Masakadza as he pressed forward to defend, and the ball dealt him a numbing blow to the right elbow. Masakadza retired hurt, leaving Chamu Chibhabha and Craig Ervine to steer Zimbabwe to tea with an unbroken partnership of 28.

South Africa had reduced Zimbabwe to 30 for 4 overnight, and if their fast bowlers had benefited from the effect of the pink ball’s behaviour under lights in the post-dinner session yesterday, it was back to clear skies and bright sunshine on day two. Yet the ball kept seaming – it was a testament to how South Africa’s fast bowlers were hitting the pitch harder, and more frequently landing the ball on the seam, than their Zimbabwean counterparts.
