    4.5 Amla given lbw, will he refer it? Yes, he is. that was back of a length and angling towards leg stump, Amla was looking to drive that on the up, he misses and is struck on the back leg in front of middle stump, was it missing leg stump? the replays say stick with the umpire's call, and that ends Amla stay 25/1
    7.2 McClenaghan gets his first ODI wicket, a moment to savour for him, that was plumb, once more smith looks to work an offstump delivery to the leg side, he misses and is struck in front of off, on the back leg as well, umpire doesn't take too long to raise his finger, even before that Smith was beginning to walk away 27/2
    20.6 Ingram is gone to an outstanding catch from Nathan McCullum, he went for a big sweep, top-edged it and the ball went high in the air, swirling around, McCullum had to run backwards from midwicket to get under it, not easy to judge that one, initially looked like he overran it, but he collects it cleanly 83/4
    11.1 AB de Villiers gone lbw! massive wicket there, he was waiting on the back foot and looking to whip the ball towards square leg, he misses and is hit in front of middle stump, that length ball was going on to hit the stumps, but did it pitch outside leg, de Villiers thought so, he's not too thrilled with the umpire's decision, he'll have to walk off though, no reviews left, replays show that did pitch in line, no problem with that decision 37/3
    42.5 and Kane Williamson strikes once more, du Plessis is goen and south Africa now unlikely to bat out their full quota, it was on the pads, du Plessis didn't want to power that one, just chipped it towards wide long-on, 'catch, catch, catch,' was the plea from the bowler, Nicol does well, getting his hands under it as the ball dropped on him, that was another solid innings from du Plessis, who is quickly becoming an indispensable member of the team in all formats 182/8
    29.4 is that taken cleanly? the fielder Nathan McCullum certainly thinks so, he's off on a celebratory run, de Kock mistimed a lofted drive, that was dying on McCullum as it reached him at mid-off, thought it might drop short but it was a fantastic take from McCullum, somehow managing to get his fingers under that low chance, he had to cover plenty of ground to his left as well, one of those rare occasions when the TV replays sow clearly whether the ball went straight into the hand or bounced just in front 119/5
    40.3 turn for Williamson, seemed to have spun past McLaren's outside edge, can't see anything on the HotSpot, there's a loud appeal for caught-behind though, and it is upheld, the partnership is snapped at 59. McLaren has done his bit with the bat though 178/6
    41.2 McLenaghan is all smiles after he gets Peterson lbw, that one swerved in after pitching just outside off, Peterson offers an awkward prod but is struck in front of off, that was going to take the top of middle, duck for Peterson 179/7
    46.2 the Kleinveldt show is over, it was down the leg side, he swipes it towards deep square leg where Mills takes the catch to wrap up the South Africa innings on 208 208/10
    43.3 does the trick on the third time, a yorker on off and middle and off stump flies out of it's place and is lying on the turf a few yards out, a fourth for McClenaghan, a debut to savour, can he make it a fifer? 182/9

    0.2 already one reason why de Villiers shouldn't be keeping, a scorching direct hit hands Guptill a diamond duck, that T20 century will seem a long, long time ago now, Nicol punched the ball towards cover and set off, de Villiers swooped in and fired in a perfect throw, Guptill had no chance whatsoever 0/1

    25.4 there's another one, and the important one of BJ Watling, New Zealand's chances take a huge hit, short of length ball well outside off, looks to chop that through the off side, bottom-edges it back onto the stumps 105/6
    7.1 and another one bites the dust, Williamson's forgettable tour with the bat continues, shortish ball outside off, cuts that one but straight to du Plessis at cover point, New Zealand are 21 for 3 21/3
    17.1 McCullum is gone lbw, Kleinveldt strikes, that was a good length delivery that swerved back in, struck on the back foot, McCullum spoke to the umpire about a review, but it seems that the lack of power at the ground means all the tools of the referral system can't be used, McCullum will have to walk off, this is bizarre scenes from Boland Park, doesn't reflect too well on the organisation 73/4
    19.2 and another New Zealand wicket goes down, Kleinveldt strikes, Elliott edges it towards Smith at slip and New Zealand are in deep trouble at 81 for 5 81/5

    25.6 and another one, New Zealnd clearly not liking these power cuts and want to leave this ground as soon as possible, short of length ball, Neesham was looking to play across the line, stayed in his crease as he tried that, he missed and is struck on the knee roll, in front of off, and that was going on to hit middle and off 105/7
    32.1 referral time as McCullum is given out lbw, looked plumb though, that one from McLaren swings in late, struck low on the front pad in front of middle stump, that was going to shave leg stump, replays say that was an umpire's call, and that stays out, McCullum has to go 140/8
    43.1 and he's done the job, in spectacular style, that arrows in towards middle stump, length ball that Mills wanted to work to the leg side, he misses and middle stump is out of the ground, South Africa at last get the breakthrough, the fans at Boland Park love it 187/9
