New Zealand v South Africa

South Africa won by 6 wickets (with 28 balls remaining)

6.4

Tsotsobe to Guptill, OUT, and there is the breakthrough, they have bowled too well to not have a wicket early, Tsotsobe pitches it up, and angles it across Guptill, who reaches out to push at it, and feathers it through to AB

MJ Guptill c †de Villiers b Tsotsobe 7 (29m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.17

New Zealand 25/1   RJ Nicol 11* (23b 2x4)   LL Tsotsobe 3.4-0-9-1

15.3

Peterson to Nicol, OUT, Peterson strikes, he has been flighting the ball consistently, lures Nicol into a big shot, he only manages a thick edge that looked to be flying past Kallis at slip, but the great man gets to his right to take it as he tumbles to the ground

RJ Nicol c Kallis b Peterson 30 (68m 58b 4x4 0x6) SR: 51.72

New Zealand 58/2   BB McCullum 9* (19b)   RJ Peterson 2.3-0-8-1

29.6

Kallis to BB McCullum, OUT, what an outstanding catch at deep point, McCullum had got hold of this length delivery, and had sliced it hard, Peterson did not have much time, he did very well to run to his left and dived to hold on, no reviews needed for that one, Baz has to walk back this time

BB McCullum c Peterson b Kallis 56 (98m 67b 2x4 2x6) SR: 83.58

New Zealand 137/3   KS Williamson 29* (40b 2x4)   JH Kallis 3-0-13-1

32.6

Kallis to Ryder, OUT, a big wicket for South Africa, Ryder holes out, a short ball just outside off from Kallis, Ryder wants to club that over the leg side, gets a top edge, the ball soars high and towards Graeme Smith at deep square leg, no mistake there, this was shaping up as a good over for New Zealand, but South Africa won't be complaining now

JD Ryder c Smith b Kallis 6 (15m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 153/4   KS Williamson 37* (46b 3x4)   JH Kallis 4-0-25-2

40.6

Tsotsobe to Williamson, OUT, big strike from Tsotsobe, he got Guptill with a similar delivery earlier, now he has Williamson pushing at an angled length ball outside off, thick edge is snapped up low by a diving AB to his right

KS Williamson c †de Villiers b Tsotsobe 55 (114m 69b 4x4 0x6) SR: 79.71

New Zealand 194/5   JEC Franklin 22* (26b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 9-1-35-2

44.1

M Morkel to Franklin, OUT, Franklin falls in pursuit of runs, looks to loft this length delivery over mid off but cannot get it high and far enough to beat Amla who scrambles back to take a well-judged catch

JEC Franklin c Amla b M Morkel 32 (52m 37b 2x4 0x6) SR: 86.48

New Zealand 211/6   AM Ellis 7* (8b)   M Morkel 7.1-0-27-1

Steyn to Ellis, OUT, right through him at 139 kph, and the middle stump is rattled, Ellis looked to use the angle on this length ball to swing it over midwicket, missed, Steyn did not

AM Ellis b Steyn 20 (26m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 105.26

New Zealand 230/7   NL McCullum 3* (6b)   DW Steyn 8-0-32-1

47.5

Peterson to Bracewell, 1 wide, OUT, fine work from AB down the leg side, Bracewell's back leg is out of his crease as he pushes well forward, and AB has the bails off quickly as the ball slips past Bracewell down leg

DAJ Bracewell st †de Villiers b Peterson 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
