    7.5 What a catch by Southee, as good as the one Tait took yesterday at third man, Kallis played a good-looking uppercut to a shortish ball, the ball flew to the right of third man, Southee hared across and dived to pluck a low two-handed catch 55/2
    4.5 a bit of swing for Southee, who strikes with a not-particularly-good delivery, fullish on the pads, Smith hoicks it to deep midwicket where Guptill pouches the catch 40/1
    13.3 jinxed him, Gibbs is gone, he looks to repeat the stroke, but gets a top edge to a legstump delivery, Brendon McCullum runs across from midwicket to take a simple catch near square leg 97/3

    0.5 that's the end of McCullum though, yet again he moves to leg and looks to hit over off, punches it flat, Gibbs pulls off a spectacular catch at cover to send him back, he dived to his right to pluck a one-handed low catch 7/1
    9.4 the end of Ryder, flighted delivery dips and the charging Ryder is fooled by that one, checks his shot after seeing he's not near the pitch of the ball, it lobs to mid-off for a simple catch 67/3
    7.3 Guptill's troubles in the middle are over, he gets on one knee and looks to swing that over long-on, can only hit it as far as Albie Morkel, Botha strikes in his first over 51/2
    12.2 New Zealand's chances are fading now, Taylor is gone to a super Gibbs catch, on middle stump, looks to flick it to midwicket, Gibbs is across to his left to take another low catch 87/4
    14.5 another one gone, a short ball outside off, Styris could have put that away anywhere he waned, instead he slogs it to Gibbs at midwicket 109/5
    16.2 again backs away, this time he looks to uppercut a short ball over third man as he had two overs ago, can't time it as well as then, can only find Steyn at third man this time 123/7
    15.2 end of Oram, who examines his bat to suggest there might have been an inside-edge after a short of length ball pitching on leg thuds into the pads, that was heading for middle and off 110/6

  • Albie Morkel regains some of his powers

    Albie Morkel has been living on reputation rather than results over the last year of international cricket

  • Albie Morkel stars in easy win

    A magnificent display of clean hitting from Albie Morkel, South Africa's slog-over specialist, and good support from AB de Villiers helped South Africa to a 13-run victory against New Zealand in their opening Super Eights game at the Kensington Oval
