New Zealand tour of South Africa, 3rd ODI: South Africa v New Zealand at Cape Town, Dec 2, 2007
South Africa won by 5 wickets (with 28 balls remaining)
2 December 2007 (50-over match)

Steyn to McCullum, OUT, Steyn strikes early.... poor shot by McCullum. The ball was fullish in length on middle and leg, McCullum tried to flick that past square leg but didn't watch the late outswing. He ended up playing an inside-out stroke which caught the leading edge and lobbed high to Gibbs at extra cover

BB McCullum c Gibbs b Steyn 0 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 7/1   L Vincent 4* (7b)   DW Steyn 1-0-4-1

Steyn to Vincent, OUT, that was simply stunning....the slower ball cleans him up... Steyn steams in, rolls his fingers over the ball and bowls a really slow offcutter. Vincent clearly didn't read it as the ball landed on a yorker length on middle and leg and sent the leg stump back a few yards

L Vincent b Steyn 18 (40m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 27/2   JM How 5* (11b 1x4)   DW Steyn 3.1-0-18-2

Langeveldt to How, OUT, the slower ball claims How this time... Langeveldt bowls the off cutter, pitches just outside the line of off stump, the ball just straightens a touch after pitching and catches How in front of middle and leg as he tries to flick across the line

JM How lbw b Langeveldt 15 (83m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

New Zealand 68/3   SB Styris 30* (50b 5x4)   CK Langeveldt 3-0-10-1

Nel to Taylor, OUT, played on... it wasn't a particularly good ball.... Nel gives Taylor width outside off to cut, he doesn't move his feet or cover the line and bounce and ends up getting a thick inside edge onto his stumps

LRPL Taylor b Nel 3 (14m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

New Zealand 79/4   SB Styris 35* (59b 5x4)   A Nel 6-0-21-1

Botha to Styris, OUT, superb commitment from Nel.... Styris steps down and tries to launch Botha downtown over long-on, he fails to get to the pitch of the ball, doesnt get the desired elevation and Nel from deep midwicket runs across, takes it running backwards, catching it on the fall. There was a bit of confusion with two fielders converging but Nel wanted it

SB Styris c Nel b Botha 60 (112m 94b 6x4 0x6) SR: 63.82

New Zealand 128/5   MS Sinclair 24* (35b 1x4)   J Botha 5.4-0-24-1

Langeveldt to Oram, OUT, soft dismissal.... Langeveldt bangs it in short of a length, Oram backs away and tries to biff that over deep square leg, he was never in control of the stroke and ended up playing far too early. The top edge lobs up for a long time and lands down Smith's throat at midwicket

JDP Oram c Smith b Langeveldt 34 (46m 38b 2x4 1x6) SR: 89.47

New Zealand 184/6   MS Sinclair 39* (61b 1x4)   CK Langeveldt 7.2-0-24-2

Langeveldt to Mills, OUT, Mills slips.... Mills plays it back towards the bowler and attempts a run which wasn't there. Mills runs, then is sent back, slips and falls backwards on the turn. By this time Langeveldt had already gathered the ball and underarmed it to the stumps. Embarassing for Mills

KD Mills run out 11 (21m 11b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 227/7   MS Sinclair 71* (76b 6x4)   CK Langeveldt 9.4-0-44-2

Steyn to Vettori, OUT, another embarassing run-out.... Steyn bowls a low full toss, Vettori fails to push it past the bowler Sinclair goes for the run anyway and sacrifices his wicket. Steyn walks to the non striker's end and removes the bails

MS Sinclair run out 73 (120m 78b 6x4 0x6) SR: 93.58

New Zealand 234/8   DL Vettori 5* (5b 1x4)   DW Steyn 8.5-0-46-2
