Full-time here at the Moses Mabida Stadium as the tie ends 0-0 and with that goes South Africa's hopes of qualifying for the 2017 AFCON show-piece in Gabon.
Thank you for joining us for this live commentary.
Frank Kom replaces Edgar Sali as Broos looks to waste time till the final whistle.
Serero tries a quick one two with Masango but is quickly thwarted by the Cameroon defence.
Thee minutes added on. Nxumalo has a brilliant opportunity to get the winner for Bafana but his shot is blocked and penalty appeals are waved away.
One minute of regulation time left over as the away side looks to break away with Aboubakar. Khune rushes off his line to clear the danger
CHANCE! Masango has space to shoot from the edge of the area but his shot fails to hit the target.
Substitutuion for Cameroon as Dani Ndi is replaced by Jean-Patrick Abouna.
Hlanti has another opportunity from a set-piece but Ondoa does well to keep the low shot out to the right side off his near-post.
Substitution for the home side: Ajax Cape Town forward Prince Nxumalo makes his debut as he replaces the disappointing Gabuza.
Hlanti whips in a corner that's headed over by Gabuza in the 6-yard area. Great chance for the Orlando Pirates forward!
Nhlapo has been impressive at right full-back since his half-time introduction. Cameroon are under pressure at the moment but remain threatening on the counter.
Bafana survive a scare as a penalty claim is waved away with Hlanti's clumsy challenge in the penalty area.
Two great chances in quick succession for the away side! The first is put over Khune's post before the Bafana keeper does well to smother the ball away from Aboubakar. The Kaizer Chiefs keeper is livid with his defence as they lose concentration.
Substitution: Cameroon boss Hugo Broos pulls Anatole Abang off for forward Jacques Zoua.
CHANCE! Hlompho takes a long-range shot from 35-yards out that goes just wide on Ondoa's right post.
Hlanti takes a shot that's tipped over the bar acrobatically by Ondoa.
Siani fouls Jali as Bafana gets another set-piece in a threatening area out wide.
Mathoho sends a beautiful diagonal ball over the Indomitable Lions defence but that meets Gabuza - the forward fluffs his attempt as the ball trickles out for a goal-kick.
Platinum Stars striker Ndumiso Mabena gets his chance as he replaces the injured Rantie.
Rantie goes down injured and will potentially have to be replaced.
Free-kick wasted by Hlanti as he puts it high and wide over the post.
Andile Jali fouled on the edge of the area. Another opportunity perhaps for Hlanti with the set-piece.
The second-half is underway!
There's a half-time subtitution for Shakes Mashaba as Thulani Hlatswayo is replaced by club teammate at BIdvest Wits, Siyabonga Nhalpo.
Juste Ephrem Zio signals the end of the first-half.
One minute added on as the first-half is nearing to an end.
Both teams wasteful in possession as the moment with sloppy play in the final third.
Drama here as Hlatswayo and Aboubakar clash. The latter goes down theatrically after their scuffle. Both players are cautioned for their actions.
The tempo has picked up here in Durban as both sides have good chances in quick succession - first Sali has a shot blocked from Eric Mathoho then Gabuza has a penalty claim waved away after beating Ondoa to the ball.
CHANCE! Bafana have a great opportunity to take the lead as they break swiftly on the counter but Thulani Serero makes a hash of it as he squares the ball past the oncoming striker Tokelo Rantie.
Play stops as a Cameroon defender is treated for a head injury after a clash with Hlatswayo.
Another chance wasted for Cameroon as FC Porto forward Aboubakar hit his free-kick from 25-yards well wide of Khune's goal.
CHANCE! Hlatswayo misplaces his pace and it's intercepted by Cameroon, the ball is squared for Vincent Aboubakar but Khune gathers it in the danger area.
The game is being played at a very slow tempo at the moment as the physical Cameroon side keep Bafana in their own half.
Missed chance by Cameroon as Edgar Sali has a snap shot - the shot goes wide past an outstretched Ithumeleng Khune and out for a goal-kick.
CHANCE! Hlanti manages to dig out a cross that fellow full-back Thulaani Hlatswayo meets at the far post, his downward header is expertly saved by Ondoa for a corner.
Limited clear-cut chances in the opening stage as both sides stroke the ball around the park. Bafana are enjoying more of the possession.
Sifiso Hlanti surprisingly takes the free-kick and it's tipped over the bar by the Cameroon goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa.
Bafana go on the attack immediately and they're awarded a free-kick after Andile Jali is fouled 25-yards from goal. Kekana stands over the ball.
Referee Juste Ephrem Zio of Burkina Faso gets us underway!
