Kimberley - JP Duminy set a new record for the highest score by a South African batsman with an unbeaten 96 as South Africa amassed a total of 194 for six batting first in their international Pro20 match against Zimbabwe at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley on Sunday.

The previous record was held by Loots Bosman when he scored 94 against England at Centurion last season.

After winning the toss, Bosman faced the first ball in his home city which he hit to fine-leg for four but was out just three balls later, caught by Chris Mpofu off the bowling of Prosper Utseya.

Graeme Smith carried on where he left off on Friday night and slaughtered the Zimbabwe seamers but, frustrated by the spinners, he lashed out and was caught by Graeme Cremer off Brendan Taylor for 46.

Colin Ingram had a short spell at the wicket before he was bowled by Utseya for 12.

Runs flowed steadily from Duminy and David Miller and their 69 run partnership came off 48 balls.

Miller was bowled by Shingirai Masakadza, playing his first game on the tour, for 25 and Heino Kuhn, Robin Peterson and captain Johan Botha each contributed one run to the total.
