  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RJ Nicol lbw b Tsotsobe 11 27 17 2 0 64.70
6.1 Given out lbw, the umpire wants to check if it's a no-ball and it's not, the foot has landed behind the line, there's some swing for Tsotsobe, inswing, Nicol moves across to flick that square, it landed on off and middle and was heading into the stumps as Nicol missed and was rapped on the pads. He looked rusty out there, and now has to head back 24/1
View dismissal MJ Guptill c †de Villiers b Kallis 58 108 73 8 0 79.45
24.6 edged and taken! Kallis strikes in his first over, short of a good length, a seemingly harmless delivery, Guptill tried to chop it past point but ended up getting a thick edge and AB took it easily 131/2
View dismissal BB McCullum*† c Ontong b Tsotsobe 85 125 96 11 2 88.54
34.1 Tsotso takes three! McCullum timed that too well, pitched it up on the off stump and he picked it up beautifully, a lovely flick of the wrists but unfortunately for him, there was a perfectly-positioned deep square leg in place, he found that man and Ontong made no mistake 175/4
View dismissal KS Williamson c Kallis b Tsotsobe 13 35 18 0 0 72.22
32.3 excellent catch by Kallis, he was standing at mid-on, Williamson charged out and tried to clear him, got plenty of elevation but it wasn't hit well, Kallis ran backwards but his focus didn't waver, he judged it to perfection, taking it behind his head and then landing on his back, Tsotsobe takes his second wicket 163/3
View dismissal JD Ryder c †de Villiers b Steyn 0 16 2 0 0 0.00
35.1 New Zealand are sliding here, three wickets in this Powerplay, short of a good length outside off, moved away a hint, Ryder was pushing away from his body, got a thick edge through to AB, South Africa in control now 179/5
View dismissal JEC Franklin b M Morkel 6 18 15 1 0 40.00
37.4 New Zealand are in further trouble, Morkel strikes! Dropped it short outside off and Franklin's aim there was to just play it in front of point but ended up getting an inside edge that clipped the bails, another one down 184/6
View dismissal AM Ellis c Steyn b M Morkel 19 54 30 0 1 63.33
47.3 Morne collects a five-for! That went miles in the air, was the slower one and Ellis took it from a length, seeking to repeat the shot he played off Kallis, but didn't pick the slower one and found Steyn at long-on. 230/10
View dismissal KD Mills c Peterson b M Morkel 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
37.5 Mills has no answer to that bouncer from Morne, banged in short on the off, a snorter of a delivery to receive first up and he could only try to fend it off, it popped up towards point and Peterson dived forward to take a comfortable catch 184/7
View dismissal TG Southee c Steyn b M Morkel 28 29 27 2 2 103.70
45.2 Southee goes after a decent cameo, short ball and he made room to swat that over mid-on but it was mistimed, found Steyn who took it easily 221/8
View dismissal TS Nethula c †de Villiers b M Morkel 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
45.3 Nethula goes back! A first-ball duck for the man, short of a good length outside off and he can't resist fishing for it, gets a thin edge to AB, Morne's on a hat-trick again 221/9

View dismissal HM Amla c †McCullum b Nethula 92 138 107 12 0 85.98
31.4 Nethula has his man, finally, excellent piece of bowling this time, bowled it much closer to the off stump this time and got the desired amount of turn, a fair amount of rip in that ball, Amla got forward and could not prevent himself from trying to open the face, got a thin edge and McCullum made no mistake, more relief for Nethula 192/4
View dismissal JH Kallis c †McCullum b Mills 4 12 5 1 0 80.00
2.5 short of a good length outside off, appeared to keep just a little low, Kallis pushed at it away from his body, there was a noise, an inside edge and McCullum took it inches from the ground, Aleem Dar at the bowler's end couldn't get a clear view and called for the third umpire's assistance, replays show the catch was clean and that Kallis has to go 11/1
View dismissal F du Plessis c Guptill b Ellis 34 38 25 6 0 136.00
11.3 wow, absolutely spectacular bit of cricket here, another bouncer from Ellis, a disdainful pull from du Plessis, seemed headed for six, except Guptill was in the way at deep square leg, he was less than a yard in from the rope, took the catch, realised he was going over, so he nonchalantly lobbed the ball up, went over the rope, balanced himself, got back and collected the ball again, du Plessis is gone, I think the highlight of that was how cool Guptill was, no panic whatsoever, and made it look like he was completing a routine bit of fielding 80/2
View dismissal JP Duminy c & b Nethula 43 62 39 6 0 110.25
25.6 Nethula's had a catch dropped off his bowling but he's not going to spill one, a googly that and Duminy failed to pick it, closed the face on it, expecting it to turn in and got a leading edge as it went the other way, it landed safely into the palms of an expectant Nethula, who'll be mightily relieved 167/3
