South Africa tour of New Zealand, 2nd T20I: New Zealand v South Africa at Hamilton, Feb 19, 2012
South Africa won by 8 wickets (with 24 balls remaining)
19 February 2012 - night match (20-over match)

de Lange to Nicol, OUT, brilliant work there by the South African skipper, he missed the pull, hit the pad and rolled behind the stumps, Guptill races through but Nicol is slow to respond and de Villiers fires a brilliant throw which hits the stumps bullseye at the bowler's end to catch Nicol well short even with a desperate dive

RJ Nicol run out 23 (18m 17b 3x4 1x6) SR: 135.29

New Zealand 37/1   MJ Guptill 12* (10b 2x4)   M de Lange 0.3-0-2-0

de Lange to Guptill, OUT, South Africa get Guptill for less than fifty, it was short on off and he went for the hook over the fence to bring up his half-century but he top-edged it down to deep backward square where Albie Morkel was safely underneath it, a big wicket for the visitors who desperately needed a breakthrough

MJ Guptill c JA Morkel b de Lange 47 (48m 35b 7x4 1x6) SR: 134.28

New Zealand 97/2   BB McCullum 22* (19b 3x4)   M de Lange 1.5-0-18-1

Botha to BB McCullum, OUT, but Botha hits back immediately as Baz comes down the track and pulls into the deep but Botha had just slowed it up a touch and McCullum didn't have enough muscle on it to get it past deep midwicket who ran in and took a good catch running in on his knees

BB McCullum c Ontong b Botha 35 (39m 31b 4x4 1x6) SR: 112.90

New Zealand 114/3   KS Williamson 4* (5b)   J Botha 3.4-0-22-1

M Morkel to Franklin, OUT, well that was all a bit understated, a full ball outside off which Franklin tries to jam through third man, ball hits bat as bat is hitting ground and the edge goes through to AB, they appeal and the umpire takes a while to send Franklin on his way as the players just stand around momentarily

JEC Franklin c †de Villiers b M Morkel 28 (14m 10b 0x4 4x6) SR: 280.00

New Zealand 159/4   KS Williamson 19* (14b 1x4 1x6)   M Morkel 3.5-0-38-1
