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)

3.1

Hira to Levi, OUT, caught! tries to hoick it over midwicket, but the ball hits the inside half of the bat and goes tamely straight to square leg. Sorry Shaun

RE Levi c NL McCullum b Hira 5 (13m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

South Africa 13/1   H Davids 8* (6b 1x4)   RM Hira 1.1-0-3-1

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

H Davids c Neesham b McClenaghan 55 (46m 38b 7x4 1x6) SR: 144.73

South Africa 81/2   F du Plessis 19* (19b 2x4)   MJ McClenaghan 2.3-0-14-1

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

South Africa 160/3   F du Plessis 63* (42b 8x4 1x6)   DAJ Bracewell 2.2-0-28-1

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

South Africa 160/4   F Behardien 0* (0b)   DAJ Bracewell 2.3-0-28-2

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

South Africa 161/5   F Behardien 1* (1b)   DAJ Bracewell 2.5-0-29-3
