    4.3 brilliant work there by the South African skipper, he missed the pull, hit the pad and rolled behind the stumps, Guptill races through but Nicol is slow to respond and de Villiers fires a brilliant throw which hits the stumps bullseye at the bowler's end to catch Nicol well short even with a desperate dive 37/1
    11.5 South Africa get Guptill for less than fifty, it was short on off and he went for the hook over the fence to bring up his half-century but he top-edged it down to deep backward square where Albie Morkel was safely underneath it, a big wicket for the visitors who desperately needed a breakthrough 97/2
    14.4 but Botha hits back immediately as Baz comes down the track and pulls into the deep but Botha had just slowed it up a touch and McCullum didn't have enough muscle on it to get it past deep midwicket who ran in and took a good catch running in on his knees 114/3

    17.5 well that was all a bit understated, a full ball outside off which Franklin tries to jam through third man, ball hits bat as bat is hitting ground and the edge goes through to AB, they appeal and the umpire takes a while to send Franklin on his way as the players just stand around momentarily 159/4

Match Notes

  • Levi's attack in second T20 was relentless - Botha

    The secret behind Richard Levi's scintillating century, according to Johan Botha, was his ability to keep finding the other side of the boundary even when the Powerplay was over

  • The rise of the Leviathan

    The latest Wynberg boy to hit the big time is a lad who can smash the ball out of the park or play the mature innings as the situation demands

  • Richard Levi brings South Africa level in style

    Richard Levi hit the most sixes in a Twenty20 innings - 13 - on his way to the fastest hundred in the format, off 45 balls, dominating the second match at a sold-out Seddon Park
