Zimbabwe were 28-1 in their second innings at stumps with Hamilton Masakadza fending a short Morne Morkel delivery to slip after making 19.

South Africa started the day on 201-4 with du Plessis adding 29 to his overnight score before falling perilously short of his fourth Test century, caught at backward short leg off spinner John Nyumbu.

That was the only wicket to fall in the morning session with de Kock reaching the adjournment on 75.

He added six to his career-high score before he handed Sean Williams his first Test wicket by flicking the ball to Vusi Sibanda at short mid-wicket.

Left-arm spinner Williams picked up a second scalp as Vernon Philander was bowled for 17, and the afternoon session saw just 56 runs scored.

JP Duminy guided the tail, making 55, but he was the last man out as Nyumbu completed a five-wicket haul on debut after earlier having Dale Steyn (19) caught at cover.
