South Africa v New Zealand

2.1

Bond to Smith, OUT, Bond strikes! good length, angling across the left hander, Smith sticks his bat out at it and the thin outside edge is pouched by McCullum

GC Smith c †BB McCullum b Bond 2 (9m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 14/1   HH Gibbs 10* (10b 2x4)   SE Bond 1.1-0-12-1

3.1

Gillespie to de Villiers, OUT, big edge and taken! short of a length outside off and wide, de Villiers stays rooted to the crease and tries to slash over point, the ball gets the top half of the bat and an easy take by McCullum. Bad ball, poor stroke

AB de Villiers c †BB McCullum b Gillespie 1 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

South Africa 17/2   HH Gibbs 10* (11b 2x4)   MR Gillespie 1.1-0-2-1

7.1

Martin to Gibbs, OUT, short, outside off, Gibbs pulls but doesnt get the desired distance, Jeetan patel at deep square leg gets under it and manages to catch it while looking directly at the sun, the shades certainly helped

HH Gibbs c sub (JS Patel) b Martin 19 (33m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 45/3   JM Kemp 18* (17b 1x4 1x6)   CS Martin 1.1-0-8-1

15.2

Gillespie to Boucher, OUT, Gillespie takes out Boucher. From round the stumps, angling across Boucher who goes for a swipe across the line but nicks it behind. The crowd is stunned into silence. McCullum is happy, runs to his right to throw the ball high in the air. The NZ camp is thrilled

MV Boucher c †BB McCullum b Gillespie 23 (30m 23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 110/4   JM Kemp 59* (44b 4x4 3x6)   MR Gillespie 2.2-1-2-2
