Zimbabwe resumed on 28-1 and made slow but steady progress as they scored 52 runs in the morning session, losing only nightwatchman Donald Tiripano (5) to debutant spinner Piedt in the process.

However they crumbled after lunch, losing five wickets for 26 runs in 10 overs, with Piedt picking up the key wickets of opener Vusi Sibanda (45) and captain Brendan Taylor (5).

Keeper Richmond Mutumbami offered some resistance with 43. However, Steyn had him caught behind before Piedt picked up his ninth wicket of the match as John Nyumbu offered a return catch.

Steyn wrapped up proceedings by clean-bowling No. 11 Tinashe Panyangara before Faf du Plessis hit the winning runs.
