Bangalore: Elton Chigumbura and Gary Brent helped Zimbabwe recover from a disastrous start to a total decent 206 in the first of three one-dayers against South Africa at Bulawayo.

Tight bowling from the SA seamers reduced the hosts to 72 for 7 before Chigumbura (59) and Brent (59*) chipped in to rescue their side with a fine 115-run partnership for the eighth wicket stand.

Former skipper Taibu, who is back in Zimbabwe squad after a two-year long exile, scored a brisk 22 including 4 hits to fence before cutting Morkel's away going delivery only to give a regulation catch to de Villiers stationed at point region.

For SA right-arm medium pacer Vernon Philander claimed 2 for 15 off eight overs and seasoned campaigner Shaun Pollock also produced a miserly spell conceding just 25 runs accounting Sibanda in 8 overs.

Brief Score:

Zimbabwe 206 all out in 50 overs ( Brent 59 n o, Chigumbura 59, Taibu 22; Philander 2 for 15, Pollock 1 for 25, Morne Morkel 1 for 33) Vs South Africa.
