KIMBERLEY, South Africa: JP Duminy hit 96 not out, the highest score by a South African in a Twenty20 International, and it proved just enough to secure a 2-0 series victory against Zimbabwe at the Diamond Oval on Sunday.
Duminy propelled South Africa to an imposing 194 for six in 20 overs but Zimbabwe made a spirited reply before losing by eight runs.
Brendan Taylor and Chamu Chibhabha both hit 59 as Zimbabwe raced to 122 for one with seven overs remaining.
It was a closing rate Zimbabwe could not match as five batsmen fell to catches off attempted big hits and captain Elton Chigumbura was run out attempting an improbable second run in the penultimate over.
Zimbabwe’s total of 186 for seven was their highest in a T20.
