New Zealand in South Africa Test Series - 1st Test

South Africa v New Zealand

South Africa won by an innings and 27 runs

Overs 0-50

1.6

Philander to Guptill, OUT, gone! There's the first one. It's been a lovely start from Philander. Pitches on off stump, shapes away a hint, Guptill plays the original line and gets a thin outside edge

MJ Guptill c †de Villiers b Philander 1 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

New Zealand 7/1   BB McCullum 0* (6b)   VD Philander 1-1-0-1

5.3

Philander to McCullum, OUT, cleaned up! But there are a few clouds looming for New Zealand. This was just a good length delivery really, although perhaps it nipped back a touch and McCullum gets an inside edge before the ball crashes into middle stump.

BB McCullum b Philander 7 (24m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

New Zealand 14/2   KS Williamson 0* (8b)   VD Philander 2.3-2-0-2

5.6

Philander to Brownlie, OUT, make that 14 for 3! Philander running riot at the moment. Gets a delivery to bounce just outside off stump and Brownlie feels for it with a rather limp shot which results in a gentle edge that loops to Smith at first slip

DG Brownlie c Smith b Philander 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 14/3   KS Williamson 0* (8b)   VD Philander 3-3-0-3

7.6

Philander to Williamson, OUT, has he got another?! Yes, he has. Number four. The umpire gave him lbw but Williamson opted to review. There was no inside, what about the height? Nothing on Hotspot and it's clipping the top of middle. That's out.

KS Williamson lbw b Philander 13 (28m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 68.42

New Zealand 27/4   DR Flynn 0* (1b)   VD Philander 4-3-4-4

9.1

Philander to Watling, OUT, Oh boy, oh boy! That's unplayable. A peach of a delivery snakes away from Watling who had to play and another edge goes behind the wicket. He couldn't do much about that. Just too good. Mesmeric stuff from Philander

BJ Watling c †de Villiers b Philander 0 (5m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 27/5   DR Flynn 0* (7b)   VD Philander 4.1-3-4-5

10.5

Morkel to Franklin, OUT, oh goodness, the game of skittles continues. Morkel gets one straighter and fuller, it's all he had to do, and Franklin drives meekly outside off to give another edge through to Smith. Tame stuff.

JEC Franklin c Smith b Morkel 1 (9m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

New Zealand 28/6   DR Flynn 0* (7b)   M Morkel 1.5-1-0-1

13.3

Steyn to Bracewell, OUT, what a delivery! And what a way to get your 300th Test wicket. Pitches on middle and hits off. The fast bowler's dream. Bracewell didn't help by playing to leg but it was a crackerjack ball.

DAJ Bracewell b Steyn 2 (13m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

New Zealand 31/7   DR Flynn 1* (13b)   DW Steyn 4.3-0-17-1

16.4

Morkel to Patel, OUT, what a catch! Patel didn't look like lasting long and he's fallen in spectacular fashion. Patel gave himself room to drive a full delivery, connected cleanly but struck it within reach of Amla at a close mid-off and he flung himself full length to his left to take a stunning grab

JS Patel c Amla b Morkel 5 (15m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

New Zealand 38/8   DR Flynn 3* (23b)   M Morkel 4.4-2-7-2

18.3

Morkel to Boult, OUT, predictable end...short-of-a-length ball and Boult stepped away to leg to try and carve it over the off side but only gets a top edge to de Villiers. A dark day for New Zealand

TA Boult c †de Villiers b Morkel 1 (10m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

New Zealand 45/9   DR Flynn 8* (26b 1x4)   M Morkel 5.3-2-14-3

19.2

Steyn to Flynn, OUT, all over! 45 all out. Banged in short, Flynn goes for the pull and gets a top edge which Steyn settles underneath from his follow through

DR Flynn c & b Steyn 8 (72m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

New Zealand 45/10   CS Martin 0* (3b)   DW Steyn 7.2-2-18-2
Overs 0-50
