    5.2 caught at first slip! Guptill swings his bat in anger/disgust/disappointment/all of the previous as he walks off. He drove from his crease at one that pitched on a good length on middle and off and left the right-hander, the thick edge was held by Ingram. Guptill's miserable tour with the bat is over. 15/1
    15.2 caught at point! The full ball angled into the right-hander's off and middle stump, Watling closed the face while playing an on-drive and the movement away from him caused the ball to fly off the outside edge straight to du Plessis, who took the catch at head height 46/3
    9.2 caught behind! Williamson has a swipe outside off stump at a length ball that's a bit slower, it bounced a bit lower than usual as well and the bottom edge carries to the wicketkeeper 27/2
    33.2 the upper cut has consumed the second batsman today. And it's also two in two matches for Elliot. Gets one short and wide, gets under it, guides it towards third man where Steyn runs in, gets low, and takes a safe catch 129/5
    21.5 he's upper cut it straight to third man! Poor choice of shot from McCullum. The ball was not short enough or wide enough to carve over the third-man boundary and McCullum was cramped for room as he got under the ball and played the shot. Steyn barely had to move to get under the catch 68/4
    42.6 caught behind! Munro charges and swings hard at a good length ball and he gets a really thick edge that flies quickly to de Kock's left. The wicketkeeper goes with both hands and catches it. Was harder than it looked, I think. Munro falls after doing his bit to take New Zealand to a score they can hope to defend. 196/6

    43.3 there's a huge appeal for caught behind but the umpire says not out. De Kock was adamant and South Africa have reviewed this. The ball was short of a length and it rose into McCullum's ribs. McCullum moved across his stumps and tried to glance towards fine leg. He ended up stopping his shot in the end but did he stop his shot in time? Hot Spot doesn't really show a clear mark on the glove but the third umpire has spoken with the on-field umpire, who has changed his decision. McCullum has to go. It did look like it brushed the glove but I can't say there was hard evidence of it. There was a smudge on the glove but nothing very clear 199/7
    45.2 that looks plumb lbw and the umpire agrees! Neesham isn't convinced though and he's asked for a review. McLaren bowled the ball in the blockhole from round the wicket and hit Neesham on the boot as he played across the line. That looks pretty adjacent, the ball would have gone on to clip leg stump. But the predictive replays show it would have gone on to hit middle! That is bizarre. Definitely not hitting middle. Leg stump, yes. 216/8

    15.3 bowled him! That wasn't short enough to pull but de Kock tried to, he missed and the ball hit the top of off stump, Franklin's provided the breakthrough. Actually the length was a bit short, de Kock simply didn't watch the ball as he tried to pull off the front foot, he should have been playing back perhaps. 83/1
    45.4 Smith's holed out! An excellent innings ends with a poor shot. Smith made room to hit down the ground but got a leading edge of sorts straight to Watling at long-on. He's left with South Africa needing 32 off 26, they are so close but will they get there now? 229/6
    26.1 and would you believe it, Ingram has fallen off its first ball! McCullum bowled an ordinary short ball, Ingram went back and instead of pulling it he simply chipped it towards Guptill, who took a simple catch at midwicket. A soft dismissal, and soon after South Africa declared their intention to get moving 122/2
    33.2 caught at midwicket! The ball was ordinary, short around the off stump, Faf du Plessis moved towards the off and pulled. He just didn't get it high enough and Guptill was waiting. Faf made contact with the bottom of his bat. 165/3
    36.4 caught and bowled! A terrific catch! Williamson bowled the ball from round the wicket, Behardien came down the pitch and chipped the ball in the air towards where the bowler would be if he was delivering from over the wicket. Williamson lunged to his left with his arm outstretched and caught in with one hand, bumping into Smith in the process but keeping his balance 174/4
    41.5 bowled him! Miller's off stump has taken a hit. He came out of his crease and tried to pull a short of a length ball that was angling slightly across him, he got a bottom edge on to his stumps. Just when South Africa were pulling away, New Zealand haul them back a little. 205/5

    46.5 bowled him! The full ball does the job for McClenaghan. It was full and straight, Kleinveldt tried to hoick it over midwicket and missed. South Africa making a real mess of this chase 237/7
    48.3 caught behind! The umpire takes his time but eventually ends Phangiso on his way! Phangiso cleared his front leg and swung hard at a good length ball that moved into him a touch. He got a bottom edge and McCullum dived to his left to hold the catch. Terrific effort 251/8
    49.5 caught at cow corner! Steyn swung hard at a length ball and hit it high into the air, Elliott came running in from the boundary and judged the catch well on the move. Such drama at the finish. Great catch under such pressure. 258/9
