  • It was the 1643rd ODI in cricket history.

  • It was South Africa's 212th and New Zealand's 358th ODI.

  • It was the 23rd match between these two sides. The record now reads: South Africa 13, New Zealand 7, no result 3.

  • BGK Walker made his debut for New Zealand. He became the 117th player to represent New Zealand in the shorter version of the game.

  • Umpires Rudi Koertzen and Danny Becker officiated in their 64th and 14th match respectively.

  • The duck was tenth for Daryll Cullinan in his career. He thus joined Lance Klusener to become the second most prolific duck scorers for South Africa. The record, however, is held by Allan Donald with 11 ducks.

  • The wicket of Cullinan was 150th for Chris Harris. He became the 2nd New Zealander after Richard Hadlee and 26th bowler overall to do so.

  • By taking 161 matches to reach this landmark, Harris became the fourth slowest in terms of most matches taken to accomplish this feat. Only Sanath Jayasuriya (175), Carl Hooper (169) and Steve Waugh (164) have taken more matches to complete their 150 ODI wickets. Just for the record, Pakistan's Saqlain Mushtaq took least (78) matches to do so.

  • Chris Harris took as many as 7298 balls to capture his 150th wicket (calculated upto the end of the innings). He now holds the dubious distinction of taking his 150th wicket after bowling maximum balls. West Indian Courtney Walsh was the previous record holder with 7210 balls (in 136 matches). Harris has conceded 5230 runs off his bowling while capturing his 150th wicketmost by any bowler. The previous record was in the name of Sri Lankan Sanath Jayasuriya who conceded 5198 runs (in his 175th match). The following table has the details:

  • Roger Telemachus' figures of 10-5-16-1 (RpO 1.60) is the most economical by a South African against New Zealand. The previous record was with Allan Donald who conceded 17 runs in his 10 overs at Adelaide on 06-12-1997.

  • Nicky Boje won the Man of the Match for the third time in his career.
