  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RJ Nicol c †de Villiers b Botha 12 56 40 0 0 30.00
13.5 thin outside edge! Botha cuts back on the pace and gives it more air outside off, has Nicol poking at it outside off and de Villiers pouches the edge 45/2
View dismissal MJ Guptill c du Plessis b Tsotsobe 7 19 13 1 0 53.84
4.5 is that you Jonty? Nope, it's du Plessis! Shades of the old man there at backward point, it was short and wide outside off and Guptill had to chase it, hit it hard and du Plessis had barely enough time to react, fling himself to his left and catch it mid-air, both hands behind the ball. Coaches, you might want to keep a clipping of this 13/1
View dismissal BB McCullum*† c du Plessis b de Lange 47 72 59 6 0 79.66
21.2 the change of bowling does the trick! Soft dismissal in the end, it was pitched up, McCullum looked to be driving straight but instead he got a leading edge that lobbed to backward point 74/3
View dismissal KS Williamson run out (du Plessis/†de Villiers) 22 69 43 1 0 51.16
29.5 Botha to Franklin, Williamson doesn't bother hanging around! Just when a partnership was building. Franklin pushes it towards short cover and risks a single to du Plessis who's had a super day in the field, he charges at the ball, dives and almost in one motion flings it to de Villiers who whips off the bails, magnificent athleticism by du Plessis 105/4
View dismissal JEC Franklin c Amla b de Lange 36 92 52 3 0 69.23
41.3 soft dismissal for Franklin, de Lange comes round the wicket and pitches it up, Franklin tries to clear the infield but ends up spooning it to Amla at short cover who takes it easily 169/6
View dismissal C de Grandhomme run out (Morkel) 36 44 36 1 3 100.00
38.4 from Tsotsobe, a direct hit thwarts a budding partnership! de Grandhomme pushes it towards mid-off and he challenges Albie who takes aim at the bowler's end, the batsman's dive wasn't good enough, the third umpire takes a look but it was quite straightforward, Albie hit the stumps from a side angle 160/5
View dismissal NL McCullum c Amla b de Lange 10 24 13 0 1 76.92
43.5 how many Amlas are there on the field? Body double or not, he has taken another catch, Nathan McCullum chips it in the air straight to short midwicket, de Lange has four on debut! 189/8
View dismissal AM Ellis c Amla b de Lange 2 2 2 0 0 100.00
41.5 pace, pace and pace! Too good for Ellis, de Lange bangs it in short and forces Ellis to play at it, tries to fend it off but ends up lobbing it off the top end of the bat to first slip. Amla seems to be everywhere! 171/7
View dismissal KD Mills lbw b Peterson 5 12 9 0 0 55.55
44.3 LBW appeal is referred, Peterson bowls it a touch flat, Mills was forward to defend and the ball hits him low on the pads quite adjacent to the leg stump, no evidence of an inside edge, Illingworth gave him out and the third umpire agrees 195/9
View dismissal MD Bates lbw b Peterson 13 12 10 1 1 130.00
46.6 no five-for for the debutant de Lange! Peterson bowls this one which goes through with the arm and hits him flush on the front pad adjacent to the stumps 206/10

View dismissal HM Amla c †BB McCullum b Mills 76 113 89 7 0 85.39
27.4 that's Mills' 200th ODI wicket! Soft dismissal for Amla, he makes room and tries to swat it over the on side but gets a top edge that's taken by Brendon McCullum 138/2
View dismissal WD Parnell b Ellis 27 61 41 3 0 65.85
15.3 through the gate! Bates can't believe it and neither can Parnell because he missed a straight one, Parnell was trying to tuck it to the on side but was far too early on the shot, the ball hits off and middle 80/1
View dismissal JA Morkel c de Grandhomme b Bates 41 69 51 2 3 80.39
31.2 Morkel falls going for the big hit over the on side! Pitched up on the pads and he tried to whip that over deep square leg, timed it well but he picked de Grandhomme at the edge of the circle 155/3
View dismissal F du Plessis lbw b Nicol 19 54 28 1 0 67.85
39.5 bit of a lazy shot by du Plessis, the flatter delivery from Nicol, he tried to work it through the on side but it looked like hitting him in front of leg, not sure if he reviewed it or not 188/4
View dismissal JP Duminy b Nicol 25 44 37 3 0 67.56
41.1 a bit late in the day for New Zealand, Duminy chips down the track but is beaten in flight, he nearly ended up yorking himself and it went through and hit the stumps 195/5
