25 March 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Steyn to Ryder, FOUR, Ryder survives, just about, a french cut gets him a boundary, a short of length ball that comes into the batsman, who looks to drive without any footwork, takes a thick inside-edge

New Zealand 11/1   JD Ryder 5* (8b 1x4)   DW Steyn 1.3-0-8-0

Morkel to Ryder, FOUR, overpitched outside off, and that's the best shot of the day, smashed through cover for four, that was too full from Morkel and Ryder capitalises

New Zealand 22/2   JD Ryder 14* (23b 2x4)   M Morkel 0.4-0-5-0

Morkel to Ryder, FOUR, just a bit of width, and Ryder hammers that past Kallis at point, it was very close to the fielder but it had too much power on it for Kallis to stop it, Kallis was looking at self-preservation there

New Zealand 31/2   JD Ryder 21* (30b 3x4)   M Morkel 1.3-0-11-0

Peterson to Ryder, FOUR, just as Mark Nicholas says Peterson can't bowl wide outside off since there is no one in the deep on the off side, Peterson bowled it wide outside off, Ryder capitalises, goes back and cracks the ball in front of point

New Zealand 43/2   JD Ryder 29* (38b 4x4)   RJ Peterson 2.4-0-8-1

Peterson to Ryder, FOUR, Peterson again gives width, again he is punished, Ryder gets back and slaps that powerfully between point and cover, Amla gives chase and puts in another of his dives but can't stop the ball this time

New Zealand 47/2   JD Ryder 33* (40b 5x4)   RJ Peterson 3-0-12-1

Morkel to Ryder, FOUR, short ball outside leg, easy pickings for Ryder, helps the ball past the keeper to fine leg for four, Morkel hasn't been at his best today, usually such a tight bowler

New Zealand 69/2   JD Ryder 46* (62b 6x4)   M Morkel 3.5-0-23-0

Botha to Taylor, FOUR, top shot. Taylor pushes the front foot forward to the pitch of Botha's flighted offie, meets it on the bounce and sends it purring through the covers. Played it into the ground, and found the gap to a nicety.

New Zealand 73/2   LRPL Taylor 18* (30b 1x4)   J Botha 4.3-0-11-0

Steyn to Ryder, FOUR, Ryder's produced a fine boundary out of nowhere. 145 kph length ball on middle and angling across, Ryder gets half forward and whacks the off drive, through the line and past mid off. Fine shot, went back at double the pace it came at. The crowd's woken up, says Pat Symcox on air.

New Zealand 102/2   JD Ryder 62* (90b 7x4)   DW Steyn 4.1-0-17-1

Peterson to Ryder, FOUR, things aren't working for SA. Ryder is cashing in for having played some very sensible cricket thus far. Robin tosses this up well outside off, Ryder comes charging out, making room as he does and then carves inside out, against the spin, almost all the way over extra cover. This is super smart cricket, another boundary off the over's first ball.

New Zealand 112/2   JD Ryder 69* (99b 8x4)   RJ Peterson 4.1-0-19-1

Morkel to Styris, FOUR, a lovely shot from Styris, it was a short of length ball, hit on the up past the bowler, wonderful timing that, mid-on could only watch

New Zealand 143/3   SB Styris 7* (6b 1x4)   M Morkel 4.1-0-27-0

Morkel to Styris, FOUR, short ball, only 128kmh from Morkel, Styris seemed to be early on to the pull, not too well timed but gets enough on it to send it to the midwicket boundary, 11 off 9 now Styris

New Zealand 147/3   SB Styris 11* (9b 2x4)   M Morkel 4.4-0-31-0

Botha to Styris, FOUR, Styris has come out with an attacking mindset, he charges out of the ground and lashes that ball to the long-on boundary for four more

New Zealand 152/3   SB Styris 15* (12b 3x4)   J Botha 8.2-0-28-0

Imran Tahir to Oram, FOUR, Oram nearly falls over as he sweeps that one, spots the gap behind square on the leg side, and he gets a boundary for his effort

New Zealand 194/6   JDP Oram 4* (2b 1x4)   Imran Tahir 8.5-0-30-2

Morkel to Vettori, FOUR, what a shot from Vettori, he shuffles across and squirts an offstump ball behind square leg for four

New Zealand 208/7   DL Vettori 4* (1b 1x4)   M Morkel 7.2-0-43-2

Steyn to Williamson, FOUR, shortish ball from Steyn, Williamson backs away and crashes this one over extra cover, Smith and Botha chase but in vain

New Zealand 218/8   KS Williamson 38* (40b 1x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 9.4-0-39-2
