New Zealand in South Africa T20I Series - 3rd T20I

South Africa v New Zealand

South Africa won by 33 runs

1.5

Hira to du Plessis, OUT, yorks himself! Faf's disappointed for missing out as he was the batsman in form. It was a flighted delivery on the middle stump line, the batsman took a couple of steps down the pitch, but the ball drifts in and the batsman yorks himself. It hits the pads and then disturbs the stumps.

F du Plessis b Hira 1 (5m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

South Africa 2/1   H Davids 0* (2b)   RM Hira 0.5-0-0-1

McClenaghan to de Kock, OUT, caught by mid off fielder at long on! Wow. de Kock went for the big shot down the ground to this fuller delivery on the off stump line, but got under it too much. That went miles in the air and Corey Anderson runs in from mid-off to slide in take that comfortably around the long-on area. Zooper catch!

Q de Kock c Anderson b McClenaghan 2 (12m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 26/2   H Davids 21* (15b 3x4 1x6)   MJ McClenaghan 2.4-0-13-1

14.5

Franklin to Ontong, OUT, and he runs out of luck this time. Another slower ball outside off, the batsman tries to send it out of the ground but only gets it as far as extra cover.

JL Ontong c Anderson b Franklin 48 (39m 30b 1x4 3x6) SR: 160.00

South Africa 115/3   H Davids 59* (46b 7x4 1x6)   JEC Franklin 2.5-0-29-1

16.3

McClenaghan to Davids, OUT, caught at deep midwicket! Davids finally finds a fielder. It was a length ball on off and the batsman half-flicks it towards deep midwicket, the timing on that taking it as far as the fielder in deep

H Davids c Anderson b McClenaghan 68 (67m 51b 7x4 2x6) SR: 133.33

South Africa 135/4   DA Miller 9* (5b 1x4)   MJ McClenaghan 3.3-0-21-2

19.5

Bracewell to Miller, OUT, caught at deep square leg! That is catch No. 4 for Corey James Anderson. It was a short ball going outside off with the angle, but Miller tries to pull it to deep midwicket boundary, gets a top-edge and Anderson settles under is nicely.

DA Miller c Anderson b Bracewell 28 (27m 15b 4x4 0x6) SR: 186.66

South Africa 179/5   F Behardien 22* (10b 2x4 1x6)   DAJ Bracewell 2.5-0-35-1

19.6

Bracewell to Behardien, OUT, caught at fine leg! short ball on the body, the batsman swivels to play a hook shot that goes straight to the fielder at fine leg, it's not Anderson, it's Mitchell M. Bracewell will be on a hat-trick next time (next year)

F Behardien c McClenaghan b Bracewell 22 (19m 11b 2x4 1x6) SR: 200.00

South Africa 179/6   RK Kleinveldt 0* (0b)   DAJ Bracewell 3-0-35-2
