View dismissal SC Cook lbw b Boult 3 34 29 0 0 10.34
8.5 error in judgment has cost Cook big time. This is full and swings back in late, Cook leaves in anticipation of the ball holding its line, but is in front of middle. He didn't even bother consulting his partner for a review. Kumar Dharmasena immediately raised his index finger. Umpire's call, says Hawkeye 10/1
View dismissal D Elgar c †Watling b Wagner 140 410 299 24 0 46.82
102.2 beauty from Wagner! Genuine effort ball and his persistence has paid off. Absolute snorter, troubled him with the short ball earlier today. This is a short ball just around off stump, Elgar is caught on the hop, not sure whether to play or leave. Thought of pulling it initially, but at Wagner's pace, you can't have two minds. The ball keeps coming back in to take the edge on the way through to Watling. Big, big wicket. Big moment 252/5
View dismissal HM Amla b Wagner 1 36 28 0 0 3.57
18.2 got him, beauty!The bowling change has worked for New Zealand! t was full and swung back in late. Amla's feet didn't even move an inch as he looked to drive, left the gap between bat and pad wide open as the ball cannoned into the middle stump. 20/2
View dismissal JP Duminy c Taylor b Wagner 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
18.6 rip roaring bouncer that kept coming back in from wide of the crease to cramp Duminy for room. He looked to pull, then decided to simply sway out of the way. At Wagner's pace, you can't really be indecisive. There is a big spike on snicko, which points to the glove. It then hits the helmet on the way to Ross Taylor at first slip. South Africa in disarray. 22/3
View dismissal F du Plessis* c Boult b Neesham 52 153 118 7 0 44.06
58.6 digs in a short ball at 140 clicks, Faf decides to take him on and fetches a pull from outside off, but is perhaps undone by the zip. Manages to top-edge it to deep square leg where Boult moved two steps to his right, settled underneath it to complete a regulation catch. Big wicket against the run of play. Neesham has created opportunities and has been rewarded for it too 148/4
View dismissal T Bavuma c †Watling b Boult 64 227 164 10 0 39.02
112.5 just kept moving too much around the crease and Boult has reaped the rewards. Why would you mess around with your footwork suddenly? Went far too across to work it to the leg side, but could only manage to glove an incoming length ball down the leg side to the keeper. Had he stayed still at the crease, he may have managed to nudge it down to fine leg. New Zealand are chipping away. Handy knock nonetheless from the little man 279/7
View dismissal Q de Kock c Wagner b Patel 10 30 26 1 0 38.46
109.1 big moment in that match. Jeetan Patel has a wicket brought about by flight, dip and turn. De Kock was itching to go after him, looks to drive but this wasn't quite there, didn't get to the pitch but went through. He ended up slicing it to Wagner, who dived forward to complete an excellent catch at backward point. 265/6
View dismissal VD Philander b Boult 21 54 35 4 0 60.00
122.4 the leg stump is flattened. Sucker ball. Short ball followed by a full and furiously fast delivery. Philander was in no position. Perhaps was expecting another short ball, and so didn't move at all. The ball sneaked through the big gap between bat and pad to crash into the stumps. 308/10
View dismissal KA Maharaj c Neesham b Boult 5 13 9 1 0 55.55
116.1 reward again for Boult, brought about by another short ball. Maharaj looks to fetch the pull from outside off again, but is beaten for pace again. Gets it high on the bat and Neesham at midwicket couldn't have asked for a simpler catch. 298/8
View dismissal K Rabada b Patel 4 20 25 0 0 16.00
121.5 bringing in all the wares and guile he can possess, rewarded this time. Shoulders arms to an in-drifter that pitches outside off and keeps coming back in to hit off stump. He never looked comfortable at any stage. 308/9

View dismissal TWM Latham c †de Kock b Philander 10 24 19 2 0 52.63
5.5 kept probing away and he's been rewarded. This one angles back in and nips away off the seam from off stump, Latham is drawn forward, pokes at the delivery and gets a healthy edge through to de Kock. 15/1
View dismissal JA Raval c Elgar b Maharaj 52 141 102 6 0 50.98
34.3 wicket against the run of play. He can't believe what he's just done. Chipped straight to midwicket. Looked like the ball stopped on him too. Touch short, he could have worked it wherever he wanted on the leg side. It was simply a case of picking out the lone catcher. Relief for South Africa, Raval fails to convert yet another start but a solid innings nonetheless 117/2
View dismissal KS Williamson* c †de Kock b Rabada 130 380 241 18 0 53.94
92.1 extra pace and bounce with the new ball has worked. Super delivery to end an innings of great concentration and character. This length ball leaves him late, there's zip off the pitch too. Williamson pokes at that and gets a healthy edge through to de Kock. South Africans have pumped. 277/6
LRPL Taylor not out 15 52 27 0 1 55.55
View dismissal HM Nicholls c Amla b Maharaj 12 34 26 2 0 46.15
50.1 snuffed out at first slip, and South Africans are over the moon. That is an outstanding catch by Amla. Diving away with his left hand stretched out to pluck that low catch. Nicholls is tentative in his forward push, the ball flies off the left. Amla is a little too straight and moves spontaneously, gets his hand underneath the ball and ensures he has complete control of it even as his shoulder touched the ground. The umpires wanted to be fully sure and so went upstairs. The soft signal was out and there wasn't much really to overturn. Moments of inspiration like these can turn the Test. Potentially a big moment. 165/3
View dismissal JS Patel c du Plessis b Philander 16 36 27 3 0 59.25
57.2 the skipper has taken an outstanding one-handed catch at second slip. Philander drew him forward with his length, Patel pushes away from the body and gets a thick edge, Faf at second slip instinctively puts his right hand out, the ball bobbles out for a split second even as both feet are in the air, but he recovers quickly to complete the catch on the second attempt. 184/4
View dismissal JDS Neesham c †de Kock b Morkel 7 37 30 0 0 23.33
65.3 this was coming. It really was a matter of time. Morkel bowls this at length outside off, there is very minute deviation off the seam. Neesham feels the need to flirt at that, like he did with the previous delivery, and this time gets a healthy edge through to the keeper. The umpires went upstairs for the no-ball. It may have been just over the line. Didn't look like there was aything behind the crease. Some nervous moments for South Africa as they waited for the decision to be relayed to Kumar Dharmasena. Morkel has been given the benefit of doubt. These are the kind of decisions you want to avoid as a TV umpire. Plenty of deliberation before the decision has been upheld. 193/5
View dismissal BJ Watling b Maharaj 50 182 128 8 0 39.06
106.1 gone soon after his half-century. Third wicket for Maharaj and it's a beauty of a delivery. This is the arm-ball that skids back in and fizzes through to beat Watling's defense. He misjudged the length completely. It looked like he was trying to work that to the leg side but it kept coming back in to cramp him for room and sneak deflect off the back pad onto the stumps. 304/8
View dismissal MJ Santner c Maharaj b Morkel 4 59 42 1 0 9.52
104.5 got him, and that's a superb catch by Maharaj at cover. The pressure of not being able to score freely has got to him. Saw this pitched up, went for a booming drive to the wide delivery. The shot was on and he came down on it nicely but didn't get it up and over the infield as he would have liked. 297/7
View dismissal N Wagner c Duminy b Maharaj 32 44 32 5 2 100.00
114.3 extra bounce does the trick this time, maiden five-for in Tests for Maharaj. Tossed up outside off, hit one patch and bounced as it spun back in, Wagner went for a cut but could only end up slicing it to Duminy at point. 341/10
View dismissal TA Boult b Maharaj 2 25 15 0 0 13.33
112.1 that's a wicket that will do any spinner proud. Slowed it up nicely, Boult was lured into the big hit. Stepped out and looked to swing that to Wellington, but missed it altogether as he's deceived in flight and the middle stump is disturbed. Fourth wicket for Maharaj 324/9

View dismissal SC Cook c †Watling b Boult 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 first strike for New Zealand and it's a regulation catch for the wicketkeeper. Full and swinging back in from off stump, Cook fiddles outside off with minimal feet movement, gets a thin edge, or so it looks. The pad was very close to the bat as well. Hard to say at first instance. Through to Watling. Delight in the New Zealand camp. He walks off immediately. Cook's second failure of the game. 0/1
View dismissal D Elgar c Williamson b Patel 89 362 249 9 0 35.74
87.1 New Zealand finally dislodge Elgar. He aims to force the pace and holes out to deepish mid-off. Tossed up outside off, turns away slightly, Elgar skips out for a loft. He miscues it off the toe end. Williamson hurtles to his right and completes a smart, sprawling catch. Elgar falls 11 short of twin centuries in the Dunedin Test. Nonetheless, it was a magnificent innings 193/4
View dismissal HM Amla c sub (TG Southee) b Wagner 24 86 68 5 0 35.29
21.1 Chipped to Southee, the sub fielder. Wagner makes the incision. Back of a length and around off, stops on Amla. He attempts a flick. Nowhere close to a full-blooded hit as the ball sticks in the surface and bothers the batsman. Amla ends up tamely lobbing a catch to short midwicket's right. Soft, soft dismissal. Not the shot you play on a track with variable bounce 39/2
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Wagner 39 119 91 5 0 42.85
48.5 Duminy is pinned in front. Umpire Oxenford raises his finger. DRS into the picture again. Duminy asks for it. This is a legal delivery. No bat involved. Back of a length and reverses in from outside off, Duminy plays around his front pad and is hit on the knee-roll in front. Ball-tracker suggests it would go onto trim the bails. Umpire's call it is and Duminy's luck runs out. Wagner strikes to break the stand and his fan club in the stands roars in approval 113/3

97.5 that's a gem from Patel! He comes back and dismisses de Kock. Looped up on leg stump, it screams away to hit the top of off stump. Patel made de Kock's work to leg side look highly ungainly. Top, top ball. That is the fantasy of every offspinner. Patel living it and celebrating 218/6
