South Africa won by 6 wickets (with 70 balls remaining)
29 February 2012 - day/night match (50-over match)

Tsotsobe to Nicol, OUT, 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

RJ Nicol lbw b Tsotsobe 11 (27m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 64.70

New Zealand 24/1   MJ Guptill 11* (20b 2x4)   LL Tsotsobe 3.1-0-11-1

Kallis to Guptill, OUT, 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

MJ Guptill c †de Villiers b Kallis 58 (108m 73b 8x4 0x6) SR: 79.45

New Zealand 131/2   BB McCullum 58* (60b 9x4 1x6)   JH Kallis 1-0-7-1

Tsotsobe to Williamson, OUT, 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

KS Williamson c Kallis b Tsotsobe 13 (35m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

New Zealand 163/3   BB McCullum 73* (87b 9x4 2x6)   LL Tsotsobe 8.3-0-38-2

Tsotsobe to McCullum, OUT, 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

BB McCullum c Ontong b Tsotsobe 85 (125m 96b 11x4 2x6) SR: 88.54

New Zealand 175/4   JD Ryder 0* (1b)   LL Tsotsobe 9.1-0-39-3

Steyn to Ryder, OUT, 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

JD Ryder c †de Villiers b Steyn 0 (16m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 179/5   JEC Franklin 4* (5b 1x4)   DW Steyn 7.1-0-32-1

M Morkel to Franklin, OUT, 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

JEC Franklin b M Morkel 6 (18m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

New Zealand 184/6   AM Ellis 3* (5b)   M Morkel 7.4-1-35-1

M Morkel to Mills, OUT, 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

KD Mills c Peterson b M Morkel 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 184/7   AM Ellis 3* (5b)   M Morkel 7.5-1-35-2

M Morkel to Southee, OUT, 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

TG Southee c Steyn b M Morkel 28 (29m 27b 2x4 2x6) SR: 103.70

New Zealand 221/8   AM Ellis 11* (23b)   M Morkel 8.2-1-36-3

M Morkel to Nethula, OUT, 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

TS Nethula c †de Villiers b M Morkel 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 221/9   AM Ellis 11* (23b)   M Morkel 8.3-1-36-4

M Morkel to Ellis, OUT, 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.

AM Ellis c Steyn b M Morkel 19 (54m 30b 0x4 1x6) SR: 63.33

New Zealand 230/10   AJ McKay 0* (5b)   M Morkel 9.3-1-38-5
