South Africa step up victory charge
Jonty Rhodes sets off on another run as South Africa add to their total
South Africa's Jacques Kallis pressed his claims for the title of world's best all-rounder with three wickets in 10 balls to send Zimbabwe heading to defeat in the first Test match at Bloemfontain.
At the close of play on the third day, Zimbabwe were 123-5 in their second innings, still needing another 102 runs to avoid an innings defeat.
Jonty Rhodes and Mark Boucher earlier followed the lead of captain Hansie Cronje by scoring half-centuries in South Africa's commanding total of 417.
Rhodes top-scored with 70 and Boucher, who added a vital 54 for the last wicket with Paul Adams, made an unbeaten 55 as South Africa added 164 runs to their overnight total of 253 for four.
Fast bowler Henry Olonga was Zimbabwe's most successful bowler with four for 93.
Kallis was then brought into the South African attack at the start of Zimbabwe's second innings and he was quick to make an impact.
He bowled Grant Flower with only his fifth ball, the opener failing to offer a shot against a delivery which swung in sharply.
And four balls later, he had Murray Goodwin caught behind for a duck, although TV replays indicated the ball had come off the batsmans shoulder.
But there was nothing fortunate about his next dismissal as he snared Trevor Gripper lbw for 11 for his 50th Test wicket.
Zimbabwe captain Alistair Campbell and Andy Flower put on 53 in an hour as they tried to take the initiative away from the home side but the stand was ended with the total on 77 when Campbell pulled Shaun Pollock to Cronje at midwicket.
Kallis then claimed his fourth wicket when Andy Flower was adjudged lbw to a swinging yorker after scoring 39.
