South Africa 515-3 dec (H M Amla 172, J H Kallis 160, J P Duminy 64, A G Prince 63 no) & 215-6 dec (N D McKenzie 63, P L Harris 50 no) v Somerset 249 (C Kieswetter 67, W J Durston 61) & 115-3
Somerset drew with South Africa
Opener Neil McKenzie played his way into form and Paul Harris struck his first half-century for South Africa as the tour game with Somerset at Taunton ended in a predictable draw.
McKenzie responded from his first-innings golden duck to compile a patient 63 from 109 balls to give himself a much-needed boost ahead of the Test series.
Harris surpassed his previous best score for the Proteas of 46 against Pakistan in the Lahore Test in October 2007.
His unbeaten 50 came off just 48 balls and contained two sixes and seven fours and injected some life into a tedious final day.
South Africa's stand-in skipper Ashwell Prince declared shortly after Harris reached his half century on 215-6 to leave Somerset a nominal target of 482 in a minimum of 46 overs.
By the close at 5pm the Sabres had reached 115-3 off 34 overs with an expensive Morne Morkel, Andre Nel and Harris collecting a wicket apiece.
It was a satisfactory start for the tourists with Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, Ashwell Prince, AB de Villiers, Jean-Paul Duminy and latterly McKenzie all making runs.
Only wicket-keeper Mark Boucher of the top-line batsmen failed to make a sizeable contribution with the bat.
South Africa face Middlesex at Uxbridge in a three-day game starting on Friday, and coach Micky Arthur expects skipper Graeme Smith (hamstring), Kallis (elbow) and Amla (groin) all to be fit to feature.
