New Zealand in South Africa ODI Series - 1st ODI

South Africa v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 1 wicket (with 26 balls remaining)

4.5

Mills to Amla, OUT, Amla given lbw, will he refer it? Yes, he is. that was back of a length and angling towards leg stump, Amla was looking to drive that on the up, he misses and is struck on the back leg in front of middle stump, was it missing leg stump? the replays say stick with the umpire's call, and that ends Amla stay

HM Amla lbw b Mills 13 (19m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 59.09

South Africa 25/1   GC Smith 6* (7b)   KD Mills 2.5-0-12-1

7.2

McClenaghan to Smith, OUT, McClenaghan gets his first ODI wicket, a moment to savour for him, that was plumb, once more smith looks to work an offstump delivery to the leg side, he misses and is struck in front of off, on the back leg as well, umpire doesn't take too long to raise his finger, even before that Smith was beginning to walk away

GC Smith lbw b McClenaghan 7 (31m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

South Africa 27/2   CA Ingram 1* (7b)   MJ McClenaghan 3.2-0-10-1

11.1

McClenaghan to de Villiers, OUT, AB de Villiers gone lbw! massive wicket there, he was waiting on the back foot and looking to whip the ball towards square leg, he misses and is hit in front of middle stump, that length ball was going on to hit the stumps, but did it pitch outside leg, de Villiers thought so, he's not too thrilled with the umpire's decision, he'll have to walk off though, no reviews left, replays show that did pitch in line, no problem with that decision

AB de Villiers lbw b McClenaghan 7 (16m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

South Africa 37/3   CA Ingram 4* (22b)   MJ McClenaghan 5.1-1-12-2

20.6

Williamson to Ingram, OUT, Ingram is gone to an outstanding catch from Nathan McCullum, he went for a big sweep, top-edged it and the ball went high in the air, swirling around, McCullum had to run backwards from midwicket to get under it, not easy to judge that one, initially looked like he overran it, but he collects it cleanly

CA Ingram c NL McCullum b Williamson 29 (68m 58b 2x4 1x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 83/4   F du Plessis 21* (23b 2x4)   KS Williamson 2-0-6-1

29.4

Franklin to de Kock, OUT, is that taken cleanly? the fielder Nathan McCullum certainly thinks so, he's off on a celebratory run, de Kock mistimed a lofted drive, that was dying on McCullum as it reached him at mid-off, thought it might drop short but it was a fantastic take from McCullum, somehow managing to get his fingers under that low chance, he had to cover plenty of ground to his left as well, one of those rare occasions when the TV replays sow clearly whether the ball went straight into the hand or bounced just in front

Q de Kock c NL McCullum b Franklin 18 (37m 34b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.94

South Africa 119/5   F du Plessis 35* (41b 2x4)   JEC Franklin 4.4-1-21-1

40.3

Williamson to McLaren, OUT, turn for Williamson, seemed to have spun past McLaren's outside edge, can't see anything on the HotSpot, there's a loud appeal for caught-behind though, and it is upheld, the partnership is snapped at 59. McLaren has done his bit with the bat though

R McLaren c †BB McCullum b Williamson 33 (53m 39b 3x4 0x6) SR: 84.61

South Africa 178/6   F du Plessis 55* (68b 3x4)   KS Williamson 4.3-0-14-2

41.2

McClenaghan to Peterson, OUT, McLenaghan is all smiles after he gets Peterson lbw, that one swerved in after pitching just outside off, Peterson offers an awkward prod but is struck in front of off, that was going to take the top of middle, duck for Peterson

RJ Peterson lbw b McClenaghan 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 179/7   F du Plessis 56* (69b 3x4)   MJ McClenaghan 8.2-1-19-3

42.5

Williamson to du Plessis, OUT, and Kane Williamson strikes once more, du Plessis is goen and south Africa now unlikely to bat out their full quota, it was on the pads, du Plessis didn't want to power that one, just chipped it towards wide long-on, 'catch, catch, catch,' was the plea from the bowler, Nicol does well, getting his hands under it as the ball dropped on him, that was another solid innings from du Plessis, who is quickly becoming an indispensable member of the team in all formats

F du Plessis c Nicol b Williamson 57 (145m 72b 3x4 0x6) SR: 79.16

South Africa 182/8   RK Kleinveldt 0* (6b)   KS Williamson 5.5-0-15-3

43.3

McClenaghan to Steyn, OUT, does the trick on the third time, a yorker on off and middle and off stump flies out of it's place and is lying on the turf a few yards out, a fourth for McClenaghan, a debut to savour, can he make it a fifer?

DW Steyn b McClenaghan 0 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 182/9   RK Kleinveldt 0* (7b)   MJ McClenaghan 9.3-1-20-4

46.2

Williamson to Kleinveldt, OUT, the Kleinveldt show is over, it was down the leg side, he swipes it towards deep square leg where Mills takes the catch to wrap up the South Africa innings on 208

RK Kleinveldt c Mills b Williamson 26 (21m 20b 1x4 3x6) SR: 130.00

South Africa 208/10   LL Tsotsobe 0* (4b)   KS Williamson 7.2-0-22-4
