New Zealand v South Africa

South Africa won by 9 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

5.2

Philander to Nicol, OUT, Nicol goes! Early strike by Philander, short of a good length, Nicol moved across and flirted with it just as it nipped away, enough to take a thin edge through to Boucher

RJ Nicol c †Boucher b Philander 2 (21m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

New Zealand 11/1   MJ Guptill 9* (18b 1x4)   VD Philander 2.2-1-4-1

19.2

Steyn to Guptill, OUT, bowled'im! An unlucky way to get out, these two were looking good, short of a good length outside off and it appeared to move away a hint, Guptill hung his bat loosely as he tried to play it off the back foot, got an inside edge onto the stumps

MJ Guptill b Steyn 22 (85m 56b 4x4 0x6) SR: 39.28

New Zealand 44/2   BB McCullum 20* (46b 2x4)   DW Steyn 5.2-1-14-1

48.3

Steyn to McCullum, OUT, Steyn lets out a triumphant roar, that was planned, there is a deep square leg in place, McCullum had given Morkel the treatment in that region but this one was a quick short ball from Steyn, he didn't time it as well as he would have liked as he went for the pull and it landed safely in the hands of the deep square leg fielder, Rudolph is the man

BB McCullum c Rudolph b Steyn 61 (197m 133b 6x4 1x6) SR: 45.86

New Zealand 133/3   LRPL Taylor 44* (89b 6x4)   DW Steyn 13.3-3-33-2

49.4

Philander to Taylor, OUT, edged and taken! Philander strikes in his new spell and South Africa have gained the ascendancy here, short of a good length and Taylor was tempted into playing the cut, slashed hard, it took the outside edge and Smith reacted sharply to his right and snapped a touch chance at first slip, South Africa have hit back

LRPL Taylor c Smith b Philander 44 (140m 93b 6x4 0x6) SR: 47.31

New Zealand 133/4   KS Williamson 0* (3b)   VD Philander 10.4-2-43-2

50.5

Steyn to Williamson, OUT, New Zealand are in trouble now, Steyn has nipped out another wicket! Banged in short, a fiery delivery bowled on the off and Williamson is forced to play at this one as it shoots off the pitch, it raps the glove and lobs up towards slip where Smith makes no mistake

KS Williamson c Smith b Steyn 0 (13m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 133/5   DL Vettori 0* (2b)   DW Steyn 14.5-3-33-3

51.1

Philander to Vettori, OUT, This is a collapse, four wickets for no run, Philander and Steyn are giving New Zealand nightmares! This one nipped back in, on a good length on the off and moved back in to bowl the former New Zealand captain through the gate

DL Vettori b Philander 0 (9m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 133/6   CFK van Wyk 0* (1b)   VD Philander 11.1-3-43-3

51.4

Philander to Bracewell, OUT, another one, five wickets for no run! Philander, you beauty. Another good length ball, moved away just enough after pitching, Bracewell flirted with it, got a thick edge and Boucher took a good catch diving to his right

DAJ Bracewell c †Boucher b Philander 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 133/7   CFK van Wyk 0* (1b)   VD Philander 11.4-3-43-4

58.2

Morkel to van Wyk, OUT, lbw, Doctrove has given it out, angling in towards off and middle, van Wyk moved across, was he struck in line? Seemed to be, the height was alright, would have hit off I think, nipped back in, and the review confirms that. van Wyk had called for a review, but the original decision was upheld

CFK van Wyk lbw b Morkel 21 (41m 25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 84.00

New Zealand 176/8   MR Gillespie 21* (17b 3x4 1x6)   M Morkel 12.2-2-39-1

59.3

Imran Tahir to Gillespie, OUT, outstanding catch by Alviro Peterson, pitched up from Tahir and that was slog-swept, Gillespie struck it extremely hard but didn't get the desired elevation, Peterson was waiting at midwicket and he leapt, stuck out one hand and plucked it clean, timing his jump to perfection

MR Gillespie c Petersen b Imran Tahir 27 (40m 20b 3x4 2x6) SR: 135.00

New Zealand 184/9   BJ Arnel 2* (4b)   Imran Tahir 4.3-1-12-1

61.2

Imran Tahir to Arnel, OUT, quicker one, bowled it short on middle and Arnel went for the pull, didn't pick the change in pace and was struck in front of leg stump, didn't call for the review, he knew he was gone

BJ Arnel lbw b Imran Tahir 3 (12m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

New Zealand 185/10   CS Martin 0* (6b)   Imran Tahir 5.2-1-12-2
