    8.2 stood way outside leg stump before the ball was delivered, waited and then came down the track to a full ball, misses completely and it clips leg stump, end of a blazing innings from Levi who won't have been seen by many New Zealand fans 81/1

    13.5 lovely ball gets Amla, tossed up outside off and Amla was early on the paddle sweep as he was deceived by the lack of pace, ball hits the off stump 107/4
    10.1 Ingram always looked out of touch, came down the track and mistimed the loft straight to long-off 89/2
    12.1 mistimes the chip loft inside out over the covers and picks out long-off for Worker's third wicket 98/3
    19.2 slower ball outside off and he mistimes the carve to long-off where the son of Rod Latham takes the catch to give the son of Peter McEwan, both former New Zealand Test players, his first wicket 145/6
    16.4 full toss on middle and he gets it off the bottom of the bat down to long-on who almost overruns it but takes it high above his head 120/5

    1.5 gets underneath a full ball on middle and times the loft nicely but gets too much elevation and not enough distance as it drops towards the edge of the circle where Morne Morkel waits and waits before diving to take the catch 6/1
    2 two in two for Lonwabo as he bowled it full outside off and Fulton drove at it without moving the feet, gets a thick inside edge into the stumps via back pad 6/2
    3.1 and he gets it! Perfect ball to bowl, it was full on middle and off and swung back in, Stewart had planted the front pad across and tried to play around it but couldn't get bat on it and the finger went up fairly quickly 9/3
    5.4 short down leg and he tried to glance it fine but it nips the glove and bat through to AB who dives to collect a good take low down 24/4
    7.1 starts with a gentle long hop and Young looked to have timed the pull well but didn't get enough behind it and he picks out Ingram at deep midwicket 28/5
    12.3 gets down to reverse sweep a full ball outside off and picks out Levi at backward point 63/7
    9 full on off and he gets under it and swings it high out towards cow corner but long-on is there to ruin the fun and takes an easy catch 39/6
    19 the action is all over at Hagley Oval as McEwan tried to hook a short ball on leg into the crowd at square leg but could only get it three-quarters of the required distance and Tsotsobe clutched it awkwardly to end an entertaining fightback 130/10
    17.4 very full on middle in the blockhole and he tries to smash it down the ground, bat hits ground and ball goes through to AB who dives to take a one-hander, Henry waits and the third umpire concludes that Henry got bat to ball first 122/8
    17.5 gets forward to defend and sets off but there is hesitation and he goes back but can't beat the throw as South Africa have nearly ended the Cantabrian resistance 122/9

  • 'Levi set the base for us' - de Villiers

    Levi wore his country's colours for the first time in Christchurch to play a tour match against Canterbury in the name of Earthquake Relief. It was not exactly the big debut he could have got but he made it count with a blistering 63 off 32 balls

  • Levi and Tsotsobe star in opening win

    Richard Levi's half-century gave a powerful start to the South Africans' batting before Lonwabo Tsotsobe's early hat-trick helped set up a 20-run win
