South Africa tour of New Zealand, 1st Test: New Zealand v South Africa at Dunedin, Mar 7-11, 2012
7,8,9,10,11 March 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Boult to Petersen, OUT, a huge yell for lbw but Aleem Dar says not out. Ross Taylor has asked for a review. The ball was full and pitched in line, Petersen moved his front foot across and tried to drive on the leg side, he missed and got hit pretty low on the front pad. Doesn't look like an inside edge either, nothing on replays. That's hitting the middle of middle. Aleem Dar changes his not-out decision. Boult's broken through.

AN Petersen lbw b Boult 11 (45m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 37.93

South Africa 34/1   GC Smith 23* (27b 3x4)   TA Boult 2.2-0-16-1

Martin to Smith, OUT, caught at cover! After four deliveries that troubled Smith, Martin pitched one full and wide outside off stump, Smith went after it, playing a firm drive but not middling it. He hit it flat and straight to Rob Nicol at cover

GC Smith c Nicol b Martin 53 (118m 74b 6x4 0x6) SR: 71.62

South Africa 86/2   HM Amla 22* (58b 1x6)   CS Martin 5.5-1-15-1

Martin to Kallis, OUT, Martin's produced a ripper, and Taylor's taken a stunner to dismiss Kallis for a duck. Martin got the ball to rise off a good length around off stump and move away just a little, it squared Kallis up in his crease and he prodded at it. The ball hit the outside edge high on the bat and flew quickly to Taylor at first slip, he had to dive to his left to take the catch

JH Kallis c Taylor b Martin 0 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 90/3   HM Amla 26* (64b 1x4 1x6)   CS Martin 6.1-2-15-2

Martin to de Villiers, OUT, lbw! Martin's on fire and on a hat-trick, New Zealand are celebrating while de Villiers thinks about a review. He has asked for it. Martin nipped the ball back into the right-hander from outside off and de Villiers was caught on the crease as he tried to play across the line. The ball hit him around the knee roll and that's plumb.

AB de Villiers lbw b Martin 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 90/4   HM Amla 26* (64b 1x4 1x6)   CS Martin 6.2-2-15-3

Vettori to Amla, OUT, caught at slip, Amla's gone, but the umpire is checking to see if it is a no-ball, it isn't, Vettori's foot is fine. Amla went back to cut but the ball bounced a bit more and he edged it with the top of his bat. The ball looped to Taylor at first slip, a relatively easy catch

HM Amla c Taylor b Vettori 62 (149m 102b 8x4 1x6) SR: 60.78

South Africa 156/5   JA Rudolph 29* (42b 4x4)   DL Vettori 7.4-1-20-1

Vettori to Rudolph, OUT, I think Boucher's been run out! But we need to wait for replays. He's short by a few inches. Rudolph dabbed the ball towards backward point and set off, Bracewell swooped on the ball quickly by running to his right - he is a swift mover for a big man - picked up with one hand, and fired the throw accurately to van Wyk, who broke the stumps neatly

MV Boucher run out 4 (9m 2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

South Africa 161/6   JA Rudolph 30* (49b 4x4)   DL Vettori 8.1-1-24-1

Bracewell to Steyn, OUT, edged, and Guptill's dropped it! But Taylor's caught it! I think they are checking the front foot for the no-ball again but Bracewell is okay this time. The ball was short of a length outside off and Steyn pushed at it from the crease, he got a thick outside edge to second slip, where Guptill fumbled the catch. It went to him at head height and burst through his fingers. The ball lobbed up for Taylor at first slip who dived behind Guptill and caught the rebound. In fact, Taylor fumbled his first attempt as well, but recovered to catch it on the second take

DW Steyn c Taylor b Bracewell 9 (22m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.00

South Africa 179/7   JA Rudolph 38* (61b 5x4)   DAJ Bracewell 11.2-1-33-1

Martin to Philander, OUT, caught at gully! The ball was short and wide outside off, nothing special, there to be hit. Philander went hard at it, slashing his bat, edging the ball to gully where Williamson held a sharp catch at head height

VD Philander c Williamson b Martin 22 (61m 58b 2x4 0x6) SR: 37.93

South Africa 214/8   JA Rudolph 51* (97b 5x4)   CS Martin 16-2-45-4

Bracewell to Rudolph, OUT, caught at point! But the umpire is checking Bracewell's front foot, he's landed just behind the line. Just. The ball was not that full but there was width outside off. Rudolph decided to attack it and drive hard away from his body. He ended up spooning it straight to Boult at point

JA Rudolph c Boult b Bracewell 52 (162m 99b 5x4 0x6) SR: 52.52

South Africa 222/9   M Morkel 7* (4b 1x4)   DAJ Bracewell 15-2-47-2

Bracewell to Imran Tahir, 2 runs, OUT, there's been a run out and South Africa are all out. It was another full ball on middle and leg stump, Tahir flicked it off his pads through midwicket and they ran an easy two. They then wanted a third, which was risky. Vettori chased the ball across a slow outfield and threw the ball back to the bowler, who broke the stumps and beat Tahir's dive

Imran Tahir run out 10 (16m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 238/10   M Morkel 13* (14b 2x4)   DAJ Bracewell 16.2-2-52-2
