    5.6 this is slightly slower than usual as Southee rolls the fingers across it, it pitches on leg and Levi tries to scoop it over the long-on boundary but never gets hold of it and it settles safely in Bracewell's grasp 38/3
    3.3 goodness me, Martin Guptill has done a Jonty Rhodes to South Africa, Amla had played it down the ground at the bowler, who stuck a foot out. Amla decided to run but it had dribbled close to the stumps where Guptill swooped in and carried the ball along with his body weight right into the stumps with Amla out of his ground 24/1
    4.2 waltzes down the track and the length isn't full enough to go through with the loft over mid-off, Ingram makes no contact and Brendon McCullum is surprised by the amount of turn past the bat but eventually lays enough hand on ball to knock the bails off 34/2
    8.6 brilliant by Guptill! It was full outside off and AB absolutely slammed it low to short cover, where Guptill took it cleanly and made a difficult catch look extremely simple. AB asked Guptill whether he caught it and accepted his word, but the umpires went upstairs to check. After numerous replays memorable only for their inconclusiveness, the umpires finally send AB on his way. 52/4
    17.5 Duminy top-edges the attempted hoick high into the sky and Mills at fine leg hangs back waiting for it and eventually has to dive forward and clutch it millimetres off the grass, he is relieved at hanging on 127/6
    15.2 but Ontong is another to fall victim to brilliant fielding! This time it's Southee off his own bowling, he got a leading edge back down the pitch and Southee dived low and forward to snaffle it two-handed inches off the ground 102/5

    7.1 and he strikes straight away! South Africa really needed that, Nicol got underneath a full ball on middle and skied it towards long-on, Amla ran around well from long-on to take a good running catch 49/1

    12.2 bowled 'em! Feet stuck in concrete there, it was outside off and he didn't quite have the room to cut as he bottom edged it into the stumps via pad flap 90/2
    16.6 poor call by Kane there, flicked straight to short midwicket and he sets off, Albie Morkel charges in and picks up before swivelling and throwing down the stumps at the bowler's end with Kane having already given up 127/3
    18.1 de Grandhomme tries to finish it early with a six over midwicket, but skies the pull high into the deep where Levi, described by David Leggat in the New Zealand Herald as having the 'build of a prop', takes the catch safely and gives the fans some words 136/4
