Dale Steyn9.513223.25425000
45.5 to KD Mills, Steyn makes it a short stay for Mills, back of a length ball just outside off, Mills backed away and sliced it towards point, the mishit results in a simple catch for AB de Villiers. 204/7
47.5 to SE Bond, that's the end of the inning, short ball does the trick for Steyn, Bond backs away and tries to punch it over point but can only hit it to AB de Villiers, New Zealand are bowled out for 214. 214/10
Wayne Parnell805757.12269110
3.6 to JD Ryder, spectacular overhead catch from van der Merwe sends back Ryder, the batsman mishit the ball towards midwicket, lobbed in the air, van der Merwe had to back pedal and move to his left before leaping to latch on to the ball, South Africa strike early. 12/1
12.6 to MJ Guptill, Parnell ends Guptill's stay, the batsman went for his favourite pull shot, doesn't get enough on it and the ball loops to a waiting Amla at deep square leg. 58/2
44.6 to GJ Hopkins, a full ball on offstump, Hopkins looks to loft it inside-out, miscued to mid-off, where Duminy takes an easy catch. 203/6
46.3 to LRPL Taylor, Parnell's knack of taking late wicket continues, this time it's the big one of Taylor, who misses a low full toss to be struck in front of middle and off, the umpire took his time before lifting his finger, the replay shows the ball would have crashed into leg stump. 209/8
46.5 to DR Tuffey, Parnell gets one more, a length ball on offstump, sliced by Tuffey to Duminy at short cover, that's his first five-wicket haul in ODIs. 213/9
Jacques Kallis802403.00331100
Albie Morkel301304.33110101
Johan Botha914414.88244000
23.1 to BB McCullum, that's the end of McCullum, fullish delivery from Botha, McCullum goes for the sweep, gets a top-edge which swirls to Duminy at short fine leg, that's a big blow, New Zealand needed McCullum to carry on. 92/3
Roelof van der Merwe1013523.50372100
38.6 to GD Elliott, van der Merwe ends the stubborn partnership, the ball drifts in nicely and then straightens, Elliott plays down the wrong line and middle stump is knocked back. 163/4
40.5 to NT Broom, That's the end of Broom, that kept really low, again superb drift for van der Merwe, turns after pitching on middle, Broom was defending off the back foot, but the ball sneaks under his bat, easy decision for the umpire. 171/5

Kyle Mills8.104515.51266001
26.5 to JP Duminy, great catch from McCullum ends Duminy's innings, it was not exactly a great ball, shortish and wide, Duminy looks to cut that, gets a bottom edge, McCullum who is standing up, hangs on to the chance. 138/4
Shane Bond1005115.10336020
16.3 to JH Kallis, Bond gets rid of Kallis, short of length ball outside off, Kallis tries to drive well away from his body, feathers it through to the keeper. 74/2
Daryl Tuffey915225.77308010
5.6 to GC Smith, Smith is gone, big blow for the hosts, length ball on middle and off, Smith was early into his shot and chips it to mid-on, New Zealand are ecstatic. 22/1
35.5 to MV Boucher, Boucher is gone, perhaps the breakthrough comes too late for New Zealand, he was looking to guide it to third man again, gets an outside edge, McCullum snaffles another great catch standing up. 180/5
Daniel Vettori1013413.40383010
23.2 to HM Amla, this time Amla is gone, turns just a little bit after pitching on middle and leg, he's rooted in the crease, height wasn't a problem either, the umpire sends him on his way. 108/3
