16.5

M Morkel to NL McCullum, 1 run, OUT, A run out now. South Africa are applying the squeeze. Full and drifting to the pads, Nathan misses his flick shot and the ball goes towards fine leg. Van der Wath swoops on the ball and fires in an accurate throw to Boucher who whips the bails off. Nathan is short of the crease. Run out in his first international game.

17.5

van der Wath to Vettori, OUT, The brothers are having a party. It's either bowled or caught Morkel. Short in length, on the middle and leg, pulled to left of midwicket where Albie takes a step before flinging himself in the air and catches it with both hands.

DL Vettori c JA Morkel b van der Wath 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

18.2

M Morkel to Bond, OUT, Morne picks his fourth wicket. Wonder what the brothers ate today. It kicks up from short of length, outside the off stump, holds its line and all Bond could offer was a poke. Fatal as Boucher dives to his right to take a sharp catch

SE Bond c †Boucher b M Morkel 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 139/8   CD McMillan 39* (21b 2x4 3x6)   M Morkel 3.2-0-14-4
