New Zealand win by 7 wickets - their first win against South Africa on this tour. It was an all-round performance from the visitors. The new ball bowlers started it all by getting rid of the South African top order cheaply. Nel's cameo led the hosts to a fighting total but a record partnership between McCullum and How sealed it for New Zealand. We will be back for the series-decider on Sunday - be sure to join us then.
