New Zealand in South Africa ODI Series - 3rd ODI

South Africa v New Zealand

South Africa won by 1 wicket (with 0 balls remaining)

5.2

Tsotsobe to Guptill, OUT, caught at first slip! Guptill swings his bat in anger/disgust/disappointment/all of the previous as he walks off. He drove from his crease at one that pitched on a good length on middle and off and left the right-hander, the thick edge was held by Ingram. Guptill's miserable tour with the bat is over.

MJ Guptill c Ingram b Tsotsobe 5 (22m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 27.77

New Zealand 15/1   BJ Watling 8* (14b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 2.2-0-5-1

9.2

Tsotsobe to Williamson, OUT, caught behind! Williamson has a swipe outside off stump at a length ball that's a bit slower, it bounced a bit lower than usual as well and the bottom edge carries to the wicketkeeper

KS Williamson c †de Kock b Tsotsobe 6 (17m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.29

New Zealand 27/2   BJ Watling 14* (21b 2x4)   LL Tsotsobe 4.2-2-9-2

15.2

McLaren to Watling, OUT, caught at point! The full ball angled into the right-hander's off and middle stump, Watling closed the face while playing an on-drive and the movement away from him caused the ball to fly off the outside edge straight to du Plessis, who took the catch at head height

BJ Watling c du Plessis b McLaren 20 (64m 40b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 46/3   GD Elliott 13* (17b 2x4)   R McLaren 0.2-0-0-1

21.5

McLaren to BB McCullum, OUT, he's upper cut it straight to third man! Poor choice of shot from McCullum. The ball was not short enough or wide enough to carve over the third-man boundary and McCullum was cramped for room as he got under the ball and played the shot. Steyn barely had to move to get under the catch

BB McCullum c Steyn b McLaren 13 (27m 25b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.00

New Zealand 68/4   GD Elliott 19* (31b 2x4)   R McLaren 3.5-0-12-2

33.2

Tsotsobe to Elliott, OUT, the upper cut has consumed the second batsman today. And it's also two in two matches for Elliot. Gets one short and wide, gets under it, guides it towards third man where Steyn runs in, gets low, and takes a safe catch

GD Elliott c Steyn b Tsotsobe 54 (109m 67b 8x4 0x6) SR: 80.59

New Zealand 129/5   C Munro 26* (33b 3x4)   LL Tsotsobe 7.2-2-23-3

42.6

Tsotsobe to Munro, OUT, caught behind! Munro charges and swings hard at a good length ball and he gets a really thick edge that flies quickly to de Kock's left. The wicketkeeper goes with both hands and catches it. Was harder than it looked, I think. Munro falls after doing his bit to take New Zealand to a score they can hope to defend.

C Munro c †de Kock b Tsotsobe 57 (102m 62b 6x4 1x6) SR: 91.93

New Zealand 196/6   JEC Franklin 27* (29b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 9-2-32-4

43.3

McLaren to NL McCullum, OUT, there's a huge appeal for caught behind but the umpire says not out. De Kock was adamant and South Africa have reviewed this. The ball was short of a length and it rose into McCullum's ribs. McCullum moved across his stumps and tried to glance towards fine leg. He ended up stopping his shot in the end but did he stop his shot in time? Hot Spot doesn't really show a clear mark on the glove but the third umpire has spoken with the on-field umpire, who has changed his decision. McCullum has to go. It did look like it brushed the glove but I can't say there was hard evidence of it. There was a smudge on the glove but nothing very clear

NL McCullum c †de Kock b McLaren 2 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 199/7   JEC Franklin 28* (30b 1x4)   R McLaren 8.3-0-43-3

45.2

McLaren to Neesham, OUT, that looks plumb lbw and the umpire agrees! Neesham isn't convinced though and he's asked for a review. McLaren bowled the ball in the blockhole from round the wicket and hit Neesham on the boot as he played across the line. That looks pretty adjacent, the ball would have gone on to clip leg stump. But the predictive replays show it would have gone on to hit middle! That is bizarre. Definitely not hitting middle. Leg stump, yes.

JDS Neesham lbw b McLaren 13 (8m 8b 3x4 0x6) SR: 162.50

New Zealand 216/8   JEC Franklin 31* (33b 1x4)   R McLaren 9.2-0-47-4

48.1

Steyn to Franklin, OUT

KD Mills run out 7 (13m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

New Zealand 234/9   JEC Franklin 36* (44b 1x4)   DW Steyn 9.1-1-48-0
