New Zealand in South Africa T20I Series - 2nd T20I

South Africa v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 8 wickets (with 0 balls remaining) (D/L method)

Back to cricket: Henry Davids and Levi in the middle now. McClenaghan to start from over the wicket.

Michael: "83 seems like a chasable total and just so happens to be the combined average of Ross Taylor and Jesse Ryder..."

"I gave up hope on the Blacks years ago - Im supporting SA," says Martin Crowe, who recently lost his blazer.

Anees: "Michael, I hope South Africa can declare their innings. But, at the same time, I also hope that NZ don't face follow-on."

"Surely in the spirit of Christmas the South African's will make history with the first T20 declaration to give us a sporting chance." Michael, what do you reckon is a good score to declare?

"I find it a bit unusual too see a night game on a Sunday. We have normally day games on a Sunday." Normally, SA hosted a Test on the Boxing Day Fanie.

Christmas has come early for East London - they are hosting their first T20 international today - and according to Cricket South Africa (in Twitter), it's all sold out.

"Fun. Another 2am wake-up for me. Fortunately with New Zealand batting second I can't regret this decision for at least over half the match this time, unlike last time where if I recall correctly it took 23 minutes," That was the effect of Mayan prophecy BJ. Maybe I am being too wishful, but today, life could be a whole lot different.

5.35 pm: New Zealand have won the toss again, but this time they have chosen to field. They have brought in Martin Guptill for Peter Fulton. South Africa have made two changes to the squad - Aaron Phangiso and Morne Morkel come in for Dale Steyn and Chris Morris.

5.15 pm: The last thing New Zealand needed after a couple of weeks of off-the-field controversies was a bad cricket outing. They were swept aside by a new-look South African side in Durban. Can they fight back today? We are 45 minutes away from the start and here is Kanishkaa Balachandran's preview for the second T20.

The TV commentator says that 380 is a good score to defend on this ground.

Last one for poor Levi, this time this is Sid: "I had seen Richard Levi's knock of 117* vs NZ and right then I knew that this guy was destined for failure. Most of his shots that day were mishits which only went for six because of the miniscule size of the ground there. On any half-decent sized ground anywhere else in the world, those would have been right down the fielders' throats on the boundaries!!"

11.1

McClenaghan to du Plessis, (no ball) 1 run, tries to bowl a slower one, but slips out of his hands. Faf plays it from around his head towards the leg side. Warning for the bowler

McClenaghan to Davids, 2 runs, short of length on the middle, the batsman pulls it in the air towards deep midwicket for a couple

11.2

McClenaghan to Davids, no run, short ball, bounces up to a decent height and Davids gets beaten on his attempted hook.

11.3

McClenaghan to Davids, OUT, is that the catch of the century!! Davids made room and plays it in the air over cover. That looked like it was going for a boundary, till Neesham runs backward from mid-off and takes this diving full-length towards the boundary. He lands and skids a couple of metres towards the ropes, but stops himself in time. Neesham made it looked so easy...more than half of the 95% of the world would have not counted that as a chance

SA look serious for 175 here. Corey James Anderson comes in.

16.1

Anderson to du Plessis, 2 runs, bowls it full on the middle, Faf attempts the scoop again, but the ball hits the toe of the bat and goes towards square leg

8.00 pmThe match has been reduced to 19 overs.. We are back. We are back. Mark's fawlty towers have started working.


Thanks for sending all the candidates for the 'catch of the century.' The winner will be announced later.


Three towers were still on when the players walked off in this match. But I played a few times in dark and foggy conditions. The bowler used to appear cutting through the fog only once he crossed the umpire. Luckily, it was just tennis-ball cricket. The cricket was played on the edge of trust. If you played a ball in the air, you only heard someone scream with joy because they had taken a one-handed blinder.


"Neesham's catch was good, but this is the catch of the century!" This is sooo last century Rick.

7.30 pm No news of that back-up generator yet. Hope it's sooner than later. We will soon get to the point where we will start losing overs. In January 2012, this ground had issues with the lights when Sri Lanka were playing an ODI here. This is what our commentator wrote back then: "Ahem, one of the flood light towers is emitting smoke, and the bulbs are off. There's enough light to continue the game though. Thank god for that. The umpires these days just love pointing their light meter to the sky and hurrying off at the first opportunity."


BJ: "Amjad, if this were in fact my nephew, a) I'd be thoroughly impressed that a 4 year old has managed to find this website, use my name and even get comments posted, and b) I'd probably march next door and tell him to go back to bed considering its 3:30am"

For those who missed Jimmy Neesham's catch, it's here already. This was from Harihara by the way.

"Get some cars - use their lights - did this as a teen - until petrol became expensive :( Serious Note - would Duckworth come into this due to time being used up??" Yes Chris, the two wise men will have a say at some point.

Kamal: "In Chennai, next to Chepauk ground, there is a small lane where we used to play cricket at night, whenever there was a day-night match.Chepauk's light aint bad at all."

Amjad: "@BJ: Can we be sure that it isn't your nephew, sending in comments to cricinfo ?"

And on Twitter, AlternativeCricket takes a dig at Levi: "The lights have gone out at East London. A fitting tribute to Richard Levi's international career."

"In india we still used to play at night in dimmed street light," Sindha, have you ever tried candle-light cricket?

"@Devashish, back when we played, we wud start playing when it would get dark," Nintan, I won't ask you what game you played.

We had a volleyball court with lights. It was sometimes used for volleyball.

BJ: "I played cricket with my nephews yesterday until nightfall. This is nothing!"

The players have left the field as a back-up generator has been asked for.

7.10 pm: A break as the lights go out off one of the towers. Back when we played as kids, we could have just done with one tower.

16.2

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, full and on the off, blocked back to the bowler

Anderson is bowling round the wicket

16.3

Anderson to du Plessis, FOUR, full and on the middle, Faf gets to his fifty with another one of those paddle sweeps to the fine-leg boundary

16.4

Anderson to du Plessis, FOUR, makes room and hits this one hard through the covers for another boundary

16.5

Anderson to du Plessis, no run, gets beaten by the slower ball. He was shaping to play that scoop shot, but the ball was outside off, and slow

16.6

Anderson to du Plessis, 2 runs, short of length on the middle, Faf turns it towards deep midwicket with soft hands and calls for a couple

End of over 17 (12 runs) South Africa 138/2
F du Plessis    58* (40b 7x4 1x6)      CJ Anderson    2-0-21-0
DA Miller    17* (12b 1x6)      RM Hira    4-0-37-1

Two overs to go

17.1

McClenaghan to Miller, SIX, how good is that!! The bowler comes round the wicket to Miller, bowls length and the batsman just drives it with some timing over extra cover, all the way over the boundary

17.2

McClenaghan to Miller, 1 run, short slower ball, the batsman has to wait for that one, it is pulled to deep midwicket but without much timing

Rags: "The break was a Blessing in disguise for NZ..Any chance the Electricians were Kiwis." I am not sure if it has helped the kiwis.

17.3

McClenaghan to du Plessis, 1 run, short ball, a quicker one this time, Faf gets cramped for room, plays it to deep square leg awkwardly.

17.4

McClenaghan to Miller, FOUR, and another timed shot over extra cover! He made room to this back of length delivery and played a tennis forehand over cover for a one bounce four

17.5

McClenaghan to Miller, 1 run, length on the off and middle, this time Miller swings it over midwicket to the fielder in deep

17.6

McClenaghan to du Plessis, FOUR, and they keep on coming! Faf makes room and lofts this full delivery over the bowler's head for another boundary.

End of over 18 (17 runs) South Africa 155/2
F du Plessis    63* (42b 8x4 1x6)      MJ McClenaghan    4-0-32-1
DA Miller    29* (16b 1x4 2x6)      CJ Anderson    2-0-21-0

27 runs have come in the 11 balls after the break, Six more to go.Bracewell to bowl the last over

18.1

Bracewell to Miller, FOUR, full and wide and Miller crashes it really really hard through cover. The fielder in the deep dives and get a hand to that, but the momentum on the ball takes it easily to the boundary

18.2

Bracewell to Miller, 1 wide, full and very wide, gives away an extra run

18.2

Bracewell to Miller, OUT, length ball outside off and Miller again times it sweetly but finds the fielder at the boundary. The fielder didn't have to move an inch. A little cameo comes to an end

DA Miller c Hira b Bracewell 33 (35m 18b 2x4 2x6) SR: 183.33

18.3

Bracewell to du Plessis, OUT, caught at cover! tries to flick it towards square leg and gets a leading edge that goes as high as the towers. The fielder at cover makes no mistake and Bracewell is on a hat-trick. Faf's amazing innings comes to an end.

F du Plessis c Anderson b Bracewell 63 (68m 43b 8x4 1x6) SR: 146.51

Behardien to face the hat-trick ball

18.4

Bracewell to Behardien, 1 run, length ball, slammed hard to long-on

18.5

Bracewell to Peterson, OUT, caught at point! length ball outside off, Peterson tries to smash it to ..somewhere.. gives it an almighty hoick, the ball takes the top edge and goes high.. very high..and comes down to the fielder at point

RJ Peterson c Neesham b Bracewell 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

18.6

Bracewell to Behardien, FOUR, a Milleresque shot from Behardien to finish off. It was a length ball and the batsman just timed it over cover for a one-bounce four.

So South Africa weren't really disturbed by that break due to the faulty tower. They have posted a solid 165 (which will be readjusted as per D/L) and a lot of those runs came towards the end. 37 came after the break to be precise. Chris captures this right: "@ Rags - Any kiwi electrician would have left the light "not working"....we're getting smoked here "

Rags: "@Chris u rock.. I hope Cricinfo embraces technology that would allow us to 'Like' the viewer comments." Technology!! We at cricinfo love our homing pigeons and abhor the usage of emails.

End of over 19 (10 runs) South Africa 165/5
