    1.4 missed a catch at slip? no problem, another one will come along soon enough, Nicol nearly edged the previous delivery behind, this time he get a thick edge, comes slowly to Smith at second slip, was quite low but was still quite easily taken, New Zealand's two openers are gone 4/2
    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
