  South Africa innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Q de Kock c †Ronchi b Mills 4 12 8 0 0 50.00
2.6 81.5 mph, de Kock going for another wild cross-batted stroke, this time he gets closer to the ball than on the previous delivery, but only close enough to get a thin edge through to the keeper 16/1
View dismissal HM Amla c & b Anderson 41 56 40 2 0 102.50
13.6 72.8 mph, that is a bizarre way to go, terribly unlucky for Amla, he swatted that one powerfully back towards the bowler, the ball hits the non-striker Duminy's bat, on the shoulder of the bat and loops up for a simple catch for Anderson, Amla has to go, the umpire had turned away to get out of the way, Anderson keeps his focus and plucks that one 97/4
View dismissal F du Plessis* c NL McCullum b Southee 13 9 8 2 0 162.50
4.6 81.0 mph, Faf's frenetic innings is over, eight all-action deliveries is all he lasted in the middle, not sure he tried to play even one of those deliveries along the ground, this is a slower ball, well outside off, Faf chips it straight to cover and Southee has a wicket, despite all the big hits attempts SA are only 32 for 2 in five overs 32/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers b NL McCullum 5 7 6 1 0 83.33
6.4 56.3 mph, and here's the big one! New Zealand on top here as AB is gone, he falls over after playing that stroke, he backs well away from the stumps and loses his balance as he looks to crash the ball through covers, the ball takes leg stump, New Zealand are jubilant 42/3
JP Duminy not out 86 57 43 10 3 200.00
View dismissal DA Miller c & b Anderson 6 16 6 1 0 100.00
17.2 73.6 mph, how many catches for Anderson in this tournament? he gets another one, another caught-and-bowled, Miller is gone for 6 after chipping the ball back towards the bowler, it was a slower one from Anderson, Miller looked to play it cross-batted, can't time it at all, easy catch 131/5
View dismissal JA Morkel b Southee 13 11 8 0 1 162.50
19.2 75.6 mph, slower one once more from Southee, 122kph, Albie looks to hammer it towards midwicket, his cross-batted attempt doesn't connect with the middle of the bat, just a bottom edge onto the top of middle stump 159/6

View dismissal MJ Guptill c †de Kock b JA Morkel 22 31 25 3 0 88.00
7.1 80.2 mph, and he strikes immediately, with a short of length ball, no movement, Guptill wants to pull that away, gets a top edge and that loops up for a simple catch for de Kock who has to move some paces to his right to collect that 57/1
View dismissal KS Williamson c de Villiers b Steyn 51 63 35 5 2 145.71
13.3 86.6 mph, Steyn, to nobody's surprise, gets the breakthrough, this was pulled towards midwicket by Williamson, Ab de Villiers throws himself to his right in the deep to take a low catch, Steyn's made an impact but is it too late? end of a top innings from Williamson 117/3
View dismissal BB McCullum* st †de Kock b Imran Tahir 4 4 4 0 0 100.00
8.5 52.0 mph, well, well, Tahir's mood has improved considerably just one ball after that drop as he gets the big wicket of McCullum, he fires this one way wide of the stumps, McCullum has been charging out every ball, he is out of the crease and nowhere near the ball, de Kock had a long time to take the bails off 66/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor run out (Steyn) 62 68 37 4 3 167.56
19.6 from Steyn, Steyn has done it! what a champion, this is sensational stuff, the final ball is well outside off, pitched up, Taylor can only bunt it back towards Steyn, who coolly collects it and runs towards the non-striker's end to complete the run-out, after that he is not cool any more, sprinting around in celebration before being surrounded by his team-mates, five dot balls in the final over, that is incredible stuff,wow, I could use a breather 168/8
View dismissal C Munro c Amla b Imran Tahir 7 8 8 1 0 87.50
16.3 60.7 mph, length ball is swiped towards deep midwicket, he picks out the man in the deep, and this is turning out to be a superb over from Tahir, three dot balls and a wicket, Tahir is off on his usual extravagant celebrations 140/4
View dismissal CJ Anderson c Miller b Steyn 7 4 4 1 0 175.00
17.3 73.8 mph, Steyn strikes again, Anderson goes for another big shot, can't get the power, straight to long-on, New Zealand have lost another one 148/5
View dismissal L Ronchi c †de Kock b Steyn 5 12 3 1 0 166.66
19.1 88.8 mph, wow, what a start to the over from Steyn, gets the wicket of Ronchi, full ball just outside off, Ronchi backs away and looks to cross-bat it through the off side, a thick edge and de Kock does well to dive to his right to collect that, Steyn on fire 164/6
View dismissal NL McCullum c du Plessis b Steyn 4 3 4 1 0 100.00
19.5 92.4 mph, Steyn gets another one, but Taylor is back on strike for the final ball, three needed, what a ripper this game is turning into, it was shortish and wide, hit the bottom of the bat as that looped towards extra cover, Faf has time to get around and collect it, Super Over coming up? 168/7
