The Kevin Pietersen saga continues with thoughts that he may 'un-retire' from one-day cricket. Could he distract Andy Flower and England from the series against South Africa?
- Players/Officials : Kevin Pietersen
27.2 MJ Henry to T Bavuma, out, beauty! Another batsman chases a wide one and perishes. Goes for an extravagant drive and gets an edge to the wicketkeeper. Full marks to Henry for bowling it wide and asking the batsman to reach out | Mar 28, 2017
24.2 JS Patel to JP Duminy, out, error in judgement from Duminy. Expects the ball to do a whole lot and it does nothing. Loopy, tossed up and gets it to drift in to Duminy who offers no stroke. He was probably expecting it to spin from the rough outside off. Instead it merely comes on with the arm and flattens off-stump. South Africa in all sorts of trouble now | Mar 28, 2017
18.6 JS Patel to JP Duminy, 6 runs, and finally he gets one off the middle. Advances down the track and uses the angle to his advantage. Does not allow the ball to spin by getting right to the pitch of it and lofts it over long-on | Mar 28, 2017
20.3 JS Patel to HM Amla, out, Amla has been chasing these wide ones for some time now. Mostly played them fine but this time he goes hard on the cut and gets a thick outside edge to first slip. Jeetan gets one to drift the other way and Amla sensing the width opens up. But the ball comes on straight with the arm and does not spin into him as expected which means he has reached out a long way for it and cannot find the middle of the bat. Goes off the keeper's glove to de Grandhomme | Mar 28, 2017
11.5 N Wagner to HM Amla, out, oh, what a disaster! That was really the worst way of getting out. Amla taps this fuller ball just to the right of mid-off. The fielder has to move to his right and run in and they sense a single. Amla calls for it and de Bruyn is initially reluctant. De Bruyn had turned around and wasn't aware that Amla wanted the run. Turns back and sees the call and responds to it. And they collide straight into each other. Amla fall, too, but he is more or less there and is able to recover and make his ground. But de Bruyn had barely covered one-fourth of the distance. No way he was going to be able to make it to the keeper's end | Mar 28, 2017
5.6 C de Grandhomme to D Elgar, out, beautifully done. They have relentlessly bowled it in the corridor and South Africa's batsmen have repeatedly poked at it away from the body. a couple of edges flew away for fours but this time no such luck. just back of a length and angled in from wide of the crease. Elgar sticks his bat out without covering the line and the ball straightens late outside off to find the outside edge | Mar 28, 2017
162.1 M Morkel to C de Grandhomme, out, that's a tame dismissal to end the innings. Short ball, angling in and de Grandhomme tries to pull. Gets a glove to the wicketkeeper who takes a good low catch to his left. Strangled down the leg side there. | Mar 28, 2017
161.3 K Rabada to JS Patel, out, sticks his bat out without moving his feet. Short ball, hangs back in the crease and gets nowhere close to it. Gets a feather to De Kock behind the stumps | Mar 28, 2017
157.1 KA Maharaj to C de Grandhomme, 1 run, clipped off the pads behind square on the leg side for one. Maiden Test fifty for de Grandhomme. Timely knock at a time when New Zealand needed it | Mar 28, 2017
