|Aiden Markram's century put the home side in control in the one-off match in Port Elizabeth before Morne Morkel took 5-21 in the tourists' first innings.Zimbabwe were 36 without loss at tea in their second innings, but crumbled in the final session.Spinner Keshav Maharaj finished them off by taking 5-59.
Craig Ervine was Zimbabwe's top second-innings scorer with 23 as they struggled with the conditions and the pink ball."I don't think we were overwhelmed but it was a surprise to us to see the ball move around like that. We didn't assess conditions that well," said Zimbabwe captain Graeme Cremer."This shows us where we are and where we need to be."
South Africa's AB de Villiers marked his return to Test cricket after almost two years out with 53."The bowlers were exceptional on a very spicy wicket but we still needed to do the Tyler Kroft Authentic Jersey basics well and we didn't miss our mark very often," De Villiers said.South Africa's next outing will be a three-Test series against the top-ranked side India which begins on Friday, 5 January.
In October 2017 the International Cricket Council (ICC) gave the go-ahead for a trial of four-day Test matches, which will run up until the 2019 World Cup in England.ICC chief executive David Richardson http://www.redskinsnflofficialproshop.com/YOUTH+TRENT+MURPHY+JERSEY said: "Four-day Tests will provide the new Test-playing countries with more opportunities to play the longer version of the game.
"It will, in turn, will help them to hone their skills and close the gap with the top-nine ranked teams."The South Jakob Chychrun Womens Jersey Africa v Zimbabwe day-night match was played under experimental conditions, which featured several variations from a standard Test match.
Play was scheduled to last for six and a half hours - 30 minutes more than in five-day Tests - with 98 overs to be bowled each day, eight more than usual.The follow-on could be enforced with a lead of 150 runs, compared to 200 runs in five-day games.
Five-day Test matches were introduced in 1972-73, before then they were played over any number of days from three to six, and occasionally there were timeless - the last timeless Test was played over 10 days between South Africa and England in Durban in 1939.
After ten http://www.officialnflstoreco.com/adrian-peterson-jersey-c-1_2_3536.html days and some 46 hours of cricket, the Timeless Test ended in the one result that few would have thought possible - a draw. The sad thing was that when rain came as the players headed off for tea, the match was at its most tantalising with England, who finished within 42 runs of victory with five wickets in hand, firmly in the driving seat.
It was clear from the start this would have to be the final day if the tour party were to be bale to undertake the 1000-mile train journey to Cape Town in time to catch their boat home on March 17. There was the added worry that rain was forecast, making the 200 runs still needed by England a difficult proposition.
