South Africa nearly messed up another run chase, but Ryan McLaren's six off the final ball ensured they avoided their first limited-overs whitewash on home soil by securing a gripping one-wicket victory in Potchefstroom. Graeme Smith's tenth ODI hundred was guiding the innings only for another uncertain display from the middle and lower order to mean the game was never dead and it came down to needing three off the last ball.

James Franklin, who the ball before had Dale Steyn caught at deep midwicket, tried to bowl wide of off stump and McLaren responded by scooping him over fine leg. Still, while the crowd went wild, South Africa's celebrations, after the initial relief, were muted as they had still come second best in this series and, barring Smith, their batting performance was again one to raise concerns.

New Zealand never gave up and deserve immense credit for how they turned their fortunes around during this one-day series. For a side that fielded outstandingly, though, they will regret one moment when McLaren, on 6, was dropped at deep midwicket by Jimmy Neesham who approached the catch far too casually.

While Smith was at the crease the chase, while never simple, was under control. He had brought up his hundred with consecutive boundaries off Kane Williamson but attempting to loft the same bowler down the ground picked out long-on with 32 still needed from 26 balls. Rory Kleinveldt and Aaron Phangiso then both fell swinging across the line at Mitchell McClenaghan to set up the grandstand final over where eight were needed with two wickets in hand.

But Smith's innings deserved to be a matchwinner. During the course of his 130-ball stay he moved second in the list of all-time run-scorers for South Africa in ODIs, now just behind Jacques Kallis and Herschelle Gibbs. Early on he was given plenty on the pads to pick off, but the cover drive, not often a shot associated with Smith, twice made an appearance.

His opening stand of 83 with Quinton de Kock laid the ideal base to chase 260 but after de Kock misjudged his pull against Franklin the innings stalled as New Zealand applied pressure. Nathan McCullum's offspin was hard to score off and when South Africa called for the Powerplay in the 27th over Colin Ingram pulled the first ball of it to midwicket.

More loose shots followed, with Smith watching on from the other end. Faf du Plessis also picked out midwicket against Kyle Mills, Farhaan Behardien chipped a catch back to Williamson who did well to hold on while colliding with Smith and David Miller played a hot-headed hoick across the line shortly after Smith had reached his hundred. At 205 for 5 in the 42nd over New Zealand were back in contention and when they removed Smith the whitewash was on the cards, but McLaren managed to keep his cool.

New Zealand had earlier recovered impressively to reach 260, after familiar problems at the top of the order left them 68 for 4, with Grant Elliott, Colin Munro and Franklin hitting half-centuries. South Africa will again be concerned about how they could not finish off an innings with the ball as well as they had started.

Elliott, who played an important innings in Kimberley, began binding the innings together. Munro grew as his stay progressed and at one stage lofted Steyn for six having already taken debutant Phangiso for three boundaries in an over during a maiden international fifty. He had been given lbw against McLaren when he had 2 but he correctly reviewed as the ball had pitched outside leg and also took an inside edge.

Eventually, however, both batsmen fell to Lonwabo Tsotsobe who had made the early breakthroughs with the new ball. Elliott was the second wicket of the innings to be caught at third man and Munro edged a slower ball. New Zealand, though, benefited from their deep batting order which has been key throughout this series. South Africa, who were again slow with their overs but escaped punishment from match referee David Boon, also gave a helping hand by conceded 17 wides.

Losing regular wickets meant Franklin could not cut loose, but he took the innings as deep as he could with some smart batting. He managed to keep the strike after the ninth wicket fell in the 48th over and the final 11 balls of the innings brought 26 runs, including a six off the penultimate delivery to reach his fifty. It was enough to set up an engrossing finish.

Musab, do you easily forget that Pak are poor on wickets in SA and Australia? They just got bowed out for 329 against a club attack in the warm up game. Anyways, looking forward to a good series, good luck with that deadly attack.

am astonished the way NZ played this ODI series..hats off to them, i always thought about them as a "weak" team..due to their poor performances on ASIAN wickets, but honestly they proved me wrong and showed their capability...A thriller game of cricket comes to a nail-bitting finish...well played NZ, u deserved it...Now its time for Pak to beat SA, beware of PAK's Bowling attack "the deadliest bowling attack" of cricket!

Posted by DaveT on (January 26, 2013, 10:27 GMT)

So much hype and hysteria about a potential 3 match "series whitewash". A backhanded compliment to the Proteas, expected to win 100% of everything. The winners were the crowd, full value till 10pm at a great country ground.

Posted by jackiethepen on (January 26, 2013, 9:27 GMT)

Wonderful game to watch as NZ never gave up. Just thrilling cricket. It is a lesson for everyone that a game is rarely dead if 11 players are absolutely fighting to the last ball. I watched the previous game as well when NZ won. Tremendous credit to them away from home. The game was absorbing all the way and a real advert for ODIs because the excitement didn't just depend on the last few overs. It ebbed and flowed and every ball seemed vital - as it should be. It was played in great spirit as well. Congrats to both sides.

Posted by JG2704 on (January 26, 2013, 9:07 GMT)

Well done SA. I remember the incident where NZ were short changed a ball and thought at the time that it would unlikely be a potential issue. However on this occasion it was that tight. I wonder if the commentary team may be allowed to liaise with the officials to limit the chances of the shortened over happening again Great finish to the game with many twists and turns

Posted by Smahuta on (January 26, 2013, 8:31 GMT)

Well done NZ for winning this ODI series. I wouldnt get too caried away though as SA were rotating bowlers and missing 4 batsmen. That makes for a C side, never mind a B squad. Excellent win for NZ away from home though as this might take a little sting out of getting hammered in the test series where they never really showed up at all.

Last night was a brilliant nail-biting game to finish a wonderful ODI Series. I've thought Graeme Smith would have been asked to captain the last game of the series in AB's absence, but Faf knew he could rely on Smith for help. And it was entertaining to see Smith reaching a brilliant hundred in his own relax way. He already showed intense improvement at Kimberley. And Ryan McLaren had a brilliant all-rounder game. He did for South Africa what Franklin did for New Zealand the other night. His last six on the last ball to win the game, was the shot of the day. But hats off to New Zealand for winning the ODI series. Their ODI ranking, before the series, vs South Africa's ODI ranking, and they had to play in South African conditions after they just have been whipped in the Test Series, gave them almost no chance to win this ODI series. You have to point out the whole squad for brilliant spirit, but I would like to point out McCulum's captaincy, Franklin, Williamson and McClenaghan.

@ Glenn10 James Fuller is a 22-year old New Zealand cricketer who bowls right arm fast. He played in the New Zealand U-19 cricket team, and currently plays county cricket in Gloucestershire. He can bowl 140-145kph and looks like a good prospect. You can see him on YouTube getting smashed for 38 off one over by Scott Styris.

Posted by alesana85 on (January 26, 2013, 6:55 GMT)

Is it me or does anyone remember during the NZ innings SA bowled one ball short in one of the overs towards the end of the NZ innings? I may be wrong but I remember the umpires miscounting one over. If I'm right that means SA only bowled 49.5 overs to NZ 50. I was watching on T.V & I remember the commentators mentioning this at the time.

Posted by Glenn10 on (January 26, 2013, 6:19 GMT)

Lucky win for SA, but thats the way it goes. Overall the fact we won the ODI series, the tour will probably be claimed as a success. Maybe if we had got allot closer in the Tests? This tour has exposed a allot things: McCullum thinks he is better than what he is, Guptil is limited to flat pitches along with Franklin - meaning they are ODI and T20 players only. Elliott looks good and is a late bloomer. He has better batting technique than some of the test players - Excluding Watling, Williamson and Brownlie of course. Maybe Elliott is a Test option? This is the tour we needed to have as we now know several guys like Flynn and Wagner have proven they aren't up to it. They should be pleading with Taylor to take back the Test Captaincy as McCullum needs to work on his batting don't you think? PS: Can anyone tell me who JK Fuller is? I note he took 6/24 (10/79 in match) for Otago after they had just scored 600 plus. This suggests it was a good batting pitch, making 6/24 really impressive.

Thanks to the Black Caps for a wonderful ODI series. Well done to Biff -he is a great cricketer. But sloppy by SA in the field. Twenty eight ( 28) ! extras - not good enough I'm afraid.

Posted by ReverseSweepIndia on (January 26, 2013, 5:42 GMT)

looks like SA are headed to Eng way. Excellent in Tests and treat one-days shabbily. Problem is not with the resources but not utilizing them properly. For what you are saving your best people? IPL? huh. I know tests are coming up against Pak, but losing series effects whole team even if only 4-5 carry over from one format to another. Now what if Steyn goes with dropped shoulders against Pak (I know it won't happen, he is champion in tests, but can't ruled out)

Posted by ReverseSwingMaster on (January 26, 2013, 5:09 GMT)

Lucky to survive a WHITEWASH. Well done kiwis.

Posted by Robster1 on (January 26, 2013, 4:52 GMT)

Both sides were missing leading players - but how SA are missing Botha's leadership, bolwing and lower order hitting.

Posted by jaguar7777 on (January 26, 2013, 4:45 GMT)

from south africa's point of view this one day series has highlighted the fact that without hashim amla the south african batting resourses are pretty ordinary .he is simply the greatest batsman south africa has ever produced and has the potential to be on par with sir donald bradman.his humility and down to earth attidute makes him a very very special human being.

South Africa have won this one but they really need to work on ODI team. So many changes also demoralize team. I think they should go with the same team with changed game strategies in each game. Pakistan is up and they do have a balanced ODI team.

Posted by YashMaster on (January 26, 2013, 4:41 GMT)

@djdrastic: Agreed. Our guys are having difficulties in the middle 15 overs (around the 22-37 over mark) and aren't able to score at a run-a-ball. They stall once the spin comes on and it looks like they have the mindset that 2 maidens in a row isn't such a big deal as we have 28 overs left. But, when they look back after the 30th over, they realize they have only scored 20 runs in the last 8 overs or so, panic, try to go for shots, get out, a new batsman comes in and the cycle repeats. If we can get someone with a cool head like Hussey or Bevan in the middle order, we should be able to set up a commanding platform and should be sweet. Maybe, Amla might be a good slot in the middle order, say 2-down or 3-down. He is pretty good and will keep rotating the strike.

Well played kiwis. Nice to see many young players performing well for new zealand. I hope this is the start of your recovery.

Posted by Hame88 on (January 26, 2013, 3:25 GMT)

kc69, yea new zealand is missing southee, ryder, taylor and vettori as well. Still think NZ is a better one day side.

Posted by xylo on (January 26, 2013, 2:53 GMT)

The ODI kiwi team is finally showing some spunk of the 90s. To put in performances like this without the services of the likes of Vettori, Taylor, and Ryder is pretty awesome. However, they would do good to fix the attitude of this kid Neesham.

Posted by shortsillypoint on (January 26, 2013, 2:46 GMT)

NZ were one ball short due to umpires stuff up in the 49th over. Poor stuff as it could have been rectified on the spot.

Good effort from a NZ team missing Southee, Taylor, Ryder and Dan V. Nathan McCullum to captain the limited overs and Taylor the tests. Brendon can play IPL or whatever. Finds = Brownlie, Elliot, Munroe, McClenaghan, Watling and Franklin may have found his niche!

Posted by Min2000 on (January 26, 2013, 2:36 GMT)

To me, it looked like New Zealand wanted it more and although some will say that South Africa was missing key players, NZL was also far from full strength - the result was a great series for the spectators and most would agree that the right team won.

I have been pretty critical of McCullum of late, and his poor form with the bat remains a concern, but his captaincy during the one dayers was first class and he showed again what a fine keeper he is.

I'd still get rid of Hesson, because his credibility is shot and his relationship with Taylor (NZL's best player) is in tatters. At the end of the day Taylor is more important that Hesson.

Posted by Sinhaya on (January 26, 2013, 2:25 GMT)

Oh what a match would this have been. I was supporting the Kiwis but congratulations to South Africa for fighting and restoring pride. When I felt sleepy the score was 180/4 and I knew it will be a thriller and now here in Sri Lanka the time is 7.40AM and great to see that the game was nail biting after coming to Cricinfo.

Well to be fair for both teams, key players were missing indeed. NZ missed Taylor, Southee and Ryder whilst SA missed AB De Villiers, Amla and Morkel. Looking forward to watching the highlights of this game on ten cricket.

Posted by birdz_eye on (January 26, 2013, 2:12 GMT)

Even though it was tight finish in favor of SA but for me its NZ all the way having lost 5 wickets for 100 odd runs they manged to get to 260 first & then made SA exposed in their home ground again. In the end it was the old war horse (Smith) who saved the day for SA other wise new bunch of guys aren't much convincing. They had home ground & conditions to support with a comparatively weaker NZ side & yet they were made to run for their lives. Well SA if you are to compete with Pakistan you will have to bring all your old guys back even Kristen would be handy since new batters will be toyed in hands of Ajmal & company.

Posted by OzWally on (January 26, 2013, 1:24 GMT)

I can't believe that no one has brought up the fact that NZ only faced 49.5 overs (the 49th over was only a 5 ball over) and that SA should have only been allowed the same number of balls. Obviously things would probably have played out differently, but as it turned out, after 49.5 overs NZ was the victor.

Posted by ThatsJustCricket on (January 26, 2013, 0:29 GMT)

A well deserved result for NZ cricket

Posted by NixNixon on (January 26, 2013, 0:22 GMT)

I see all the NZ supporters are saying that they too are missing players, well would you rather have AB/JP/MORKEL/KALLIS/AMLA in your team or RYDER/SOUTHEE/VETORRI/TYLER. The truth is NZ are missing average players (not star players) whose impact on the outcome of the series would have been far less than the impact the missing SA players would have had.

Posted by vrn59 on (January 25, 2013, 23:50 GMT)

Although SA should be ashamed of their performance in this series, it must not be forgotten that they fielded only six or seven first-choice players. Kirsten recently stated that he already had a rough idea of the composition of the 15-man squad SA would take to England for the Champions Trophy (fitness permitting). My first XI would be Smith, Amla, Ingram, Kallis, de Villiers (C&wk), du Plessis, Duminy, R Peterson, Steyn, M Morkel, Tsotsobe. de Kock can be included in Ingram's place (although he would bat at N0. 7 and the other batsmen would be promoted up the order by one position each) if de Villiers doesn't keep. McLaren could be seriously considered, especially given his heroics with bat and ball today. A Morkel cannot be forgotten. Either Phangiso or Tahir could be the second spinner, while the backup seamer's slot would be down to a face-off between Kleinveldt, de Lange and perhaps Parnell. This seems like a decent squad, capable of winning. I hope they don't choke. :P

Posted by dalboy12 on (January 25, 2013, 23:25 GMT)

Yeah!! Great win by NZ --- sure SA were under strength but so were NZ. Today was a great match, teams are struggling in different areas. NZ still struggling to get starts, but are finishing their innings well, SA are the opposite, they are getting starts but not finishing well. I like the NZ make up of having Elliot and Willliamsom there through the middle overs, and then the hitters coming in later. Personally, I like Baz McCullum opening in ODIs - maybe not so much in tests. Guptil may need a break, so McCullum and Ryder at the top looks pretty good. Be a shame that either Elliot or Watling it seems will have to go, if Taylor scores some runs and gets back in the team.

Posted by yetigoat on (January 25, 2013, 23:24 GMT)

Neesham has proved something. That he is not international class, may never be but as long as the otago mafia are running cricket he will get a look in.

Good to see Elliot get a few runs, and to all those people that always suggest get young blood in the team, youth is not always the way, experience does count.

Posted by Jordanious77 on (January 25, 2013, 22:49 GMT)

NZ only faced 299 balls (someone counted a wide as a legit delivery in the 49th over) and south africa win on the last ball? so that 1 ball was the difference... Interesting.

Posted by amemberoftheelect23 on (January 25, 2013, 22:34 GMT)

I am a West Indian not a great fan of New Zealand but fair is fair! South Africa should NOT rejoice too much as it was the umpires who gave them this one. As far as i am concerned they were whitewashed! New Zealand received one less ball as the umpires purposely messed up in the 48th over of the New Zealand innings. Nathan M. was also given out though the initial decision was not out and the replays could not conclusively prove that he was out! BIASED reporting. This should have been mentioned. Once again I am a West Indian!

Posted by dog_again on (January 25, 2013, 22:33 GMT)

SA fans have been spoilt by the test squad's stability and focus - in that format we've had well prepared, mature players come in and perform well either instantly (Faf, Vern) or at least be covered by the rest of the side's quality. So many of our ODI players have either been yo-yo'd in and out so much it's not surprising that their confidence isn't quite where it should be (Miller, Ingram, McLaren) or are really a bit too green for the big stage (de Kock, Phangiso, Behaardien) and don't have as much quality or stability around them for us to get away with it.

Congrats to New Zealand - we had you on the ropes four times in three matches and you fought your way back into the game every time - that's the fighting spirit I expect and love to see from the BCs. We missed it in the tests.

Posted by djdrastic on (January 25, 2013, 22:09 GMT)

Some pretty terrible cricket being played by our boys yet again . How do we keep losing so many wickets in the back 20 overs when we're cruising ?

Posted by SurlyCynic on (January 25, 2013, 22:07 GMT)

Well done to the Kiwis, deserved winners of the series. It was good to watch (even as an SA supporter) as all the games could have gone either way, and this last game was one of the best ODIs I've seen in a while. But overall NZ played the better cricket and won the key moments.

Both teams were missing half their starting 11s so this was an interesting look at the depth and young players coming through. From an SA perspective it's a bit worrying, in terms of both bowling and batting, although De Kock helps team balance a lot as a keeper capable of opening and scoring at a good rate. But we miss players like AB and JP who can score lots of singles as well as boundaries, Behardien and Miller seem to either block or go for a big shot. The tail also looks long, I'd like to see players like Morris and Wiese get a chance as big hitting allrounders.

Posted by Ibra95 on (January 25, 2013, 21:49 GMT)

Congratz New Zealand for the win of the series =) Well done Munro & Smith, specially for the century, it was awesome *o*

Posted by corzaNZ on (January 25, 2013, 21:48 GMT)

So the SA tour is over so lets have a look..... test - 20.5.....ODI - 18.6..... T20 - 16.... these are McCullums averages thru the tour, is this what we need from a captain going forward? He has contributed nothing the entire tour.... oh wait, he blunted the new ball in the tests so its deemed a success for him. Come on skipper, well done

Posted by Surajdon9 on (January 25, 2013, 21:44 GMT)

Well Played Smith.Real Match winner For South Africa..What a super winning shot By Ryan McLaren absolutely Brilliant, Marvelous and Majestic...

Posted by TommytuckerSaffa on (January 25, 2013, 21:42 GMT)

Geez, this SA ODI team looks totally rubbish. Hope they take future games a bit more seriously. Hopefully they will switch on more for the PAK series and also stop resting key players. Bring back A.Morkel, Johan Botha, AB, Amla, Kallis, JP and things start to look a bit better.

Posted by   on (January 25, 2013, 21:37 GMT)

Terrible bowling by RSA at the death gave NZ 20 more runs than they should have. A middle order wobble meant Biff & whomever was hanging around for a while were left to take RSA home. Luckily McLaren decided to turn up today after 2 very forgettable games in the Series. That last ball 6 probably saved his LOI career for now.

Being realistic, we did the best we could with an inexperienced side. Phangiso? Berhardien? Shouldn't be close to the side.

Posted by Hurricanesxv on (January 25, 2013, 21:17 GMT)

Well this was the boost NZ cricket alright..Please don't forget that the Black Caps is without its star players such as Taylor, Ryder, Southee and Vettori...series would have been different..anyways Hats off to South Africa for their participation.

Posted by marts30 on (January 25, 2013, 21:15 GMT)

@kc69: This again? Jeez, we get it. Both teams were not full strength, not just SA. NZ were a bowler short, Neesham hasn't proved much in this series.

Posted by kc69 on (January 25, 2013, 21:02 GMT)

Well this was the boost NZ cricket needed..Please don't forget that SA is without its star players such as AB,Morkel(albie and morne),Botha and Amla..series would have been different..anyways Hats off to Kiwis.

Posted by SladeR on (January 25, 2013, 20:47 GMT)

Normal service has resumed. NZ unable to finish off a game. Great captains knock, obviousy not referring to McCullum, who once again has no batting form and picks the wrong option to close out the bowling.

Please go and play IPL cricket for the rest of your career McCullum, and allow NZ to build up some opening batsmen (hey, didn't you insist you could not wicket keep and were able to open instead?), as well as building up some middle order cohesion. M.Bracewell, Rutherford, Latham, heck, even Redmond has more opening form.

Posted by Soso_killer on (January 25, 2013, 19:25 GMT)

@swatt1999 i agree they they remind me of when SA, had guys like Klusner, Pollock, Boje/Symcox down the lower order they were very hard to beat. I think its the major reason they had a 50/50 record against Australia at their best while everyone else was struggling against them. I cant wait for the inclusion of Ross Taylor, Ryder, and Vetorri.

Posted by WAKE_UP_CALL on (January 25, 2013, 17:10 GMT)

Franklin is coming of age of those players who started their career as bowlers but turned out more effective as batsman and till recently it has improved his bowling too.brendon mccullum to nz is what is gambhir to india. Absolute rubbish who are more dedicated to t20 franchises and when faced international bowlers their technique shouted loudly that they don't belong there.nz with upcoming potent bowling attack needs a wise leader who has his head above his shoulders as they had in stephen fleming and kane williamson doesnt look a bad choice to.world cricket needs nz playing like earlier years.irrespective of the fact that rsa is missing big names as amla and AB de nz deserved this series win.they still have couple of years to build a fantastic odi team to fight as hosts for the world cup in 2015.

Posted by   on (January 25, 2013, 16:38 GMT)

1. A score of 260 is a damn good one! Especially against this particular S A team, in its current form. Never expected NZ to score this much!

2. Good for NZ, that in addtion to a good new ball bowler, they have also found Munro & refound Elliot.

3. Williamson had one bad match today; but he is going to be the batting backbone of NZ, for quite some timeto come.

4. BBM can retre, at a pretty 'young' age. And, focus on T-20 around the world.

5. Once Taylor and Ryder are re-inducted, NZ do have a good team. England, don't take them granted!

Posted by swat1999 on (January 25, 2013, 16:26 GMT)

Wel done Kiwis. This New Zealand tail enders are really superb! I think Black cap tail enders one of the best batting side in the World

Posted by   on (January 25, 2013, 15:36 GMT)

Brendon McCullum has proved beyond all possible doubt that he is perfectly redundant in the NZ line-up and definitely does not deserve to block a spot in the team.
