END OF OVER:
20 | 13 Runs 1 Wkt | NZ: 127/5

  • WD Parnell4-0-38-0
  • DW Steyn4-0-22-1

Whew. What a finish. South Africa remain unbeaten and top Group D. They made a modest score but rallied superbly in the field. Brendon McCullum got a half-century but never threatened to step on the gas. Whenever New Zealand started to form a stand South Africa snapped it. South Africa held their nerve and bowled really well, applying and keeping the pressure on New Zealand. A pleasing win for them.

Roelof gets the Man of the Match award. A good day at the office for him.

So thats it from all of us. Hope you enjoyed the coverage. Thanks for tuning in. Bye for now!

Parnell to Oram, 2 runs, OUT, and South Africa have won by a run! Its a good ball, full and straight as it should be, Oram backs away and swings it along the ground down to long-on, he and Styris run two, then as Parnell fumbles the collection Styris charges down for an utterly nonexistent third run and gets shooed back, by which time Smith collects the ball from cover and does the rest

New Zealand need four from one ball. Can they do it?

Parnell to Oram, FOUR runs, oh oh ho! Four to fine leg! Parnell bowls it full, Oram swings and gets an inside edge well wide of Boucher and with fine leg up thats a boundary
19.4

Parnell to Oram, 2 runs, oh he's dropped it and Oram gets two! Parnell serves up another full toss, Oram clubs it over mid-off, Kallis runs in and dives full stretch but lets the ball slip out, how crucial is that now?

Parnell to Oram, 2 runs, full toss on leg stump but Oram fails to put it away, just swinging it past midwicket for a couple more, but what he needs is a boundary from somewhere
19.2

Parnell to Oram, 2 runs, well bowled, again Parnell looks to take out leg stump, not where he wanted but it cramps Oram for room and he clips the ball past midwicket and gets two
19.1
1
Parnell to Styris, 1 run, aims for leg stump but cannot get it, Styris heaves and gets an inside edge down to fine leg

New Zealand need 15 from six . They managed 12 from the last one. Tension, tension. Parnell will bowl the last over. The crowd is on edge. Styris on strike.
