South Africa’s batter abandons the ball, and a lapse in judgment proves costly. Khaya Zondo was bowled as he tried to leave a delivery outside off-stump during South Africa’s practice match against England Lions.
South Africa is currently playing a warm-up match against the England Lions in preparation for their three-match Test series against England, which begins on August 17.
