TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 5.66, 221 Mins)283/7
Fall of wickets: 1-89 (Hashim Amla, 20.1 ov), 2-96 (Rilee Rossouw, 21.6 ov), 3-134 (Morne van Wyk, 30.3 ov), 4-220 (AB de Villiers, 40.3 ov), 5-232 (David Miller, 43.1 ov), 6-258 (David Wiese, 47.2 ov), 7-283 (Farhaan Behardien, 49.6 ov)
21.6 to RR Rossouw, taken! Good job keeping the slip in. New Zealand have created a clear advantage here. Lovely delivery, demanding if the new batsman was aware of his off-stump. He wasnt particularly. Pokes at the ball with hard hands and Latham takes a good, low chance. 96/2
47.2 to D Wiese, gone this time. Wiese looks for a swipe over midwicket, but that may have been the offcutter which helps in taking Wiese's outside edge. He swung at that so hard that it carries to Sodhi at third man.. 258/6
49.6 to F Behardien, gone of the last ball. Low full toss outside off, Behardien looks to smash it over long-off but gets more elevation than distance. Williamson settles under it nicely and takes a good catch to end the SA innings. Good cameo that from Behardien too.. 283/7
43.1 to DA Miller, gone, another wicket for NZ. Miller's scratchy innings comes to an end. Angled across Miller who pushes at the length delivery with no feet movement. A thick edge carries comfortably through to Ronchi. 232/5
40.3 to AB de Villiers, got im this time. Make no mistake, this is a massive wicket for NZ. Slow delivery, slower than Bracewell's normal pace on a good length. AB looks to drive through cover but the ball sneaks through bat and pad and hits the off stump. Good change in pace does for the dangerous de Villiers. Can NZ claw back in this?. 220/4
20.1 to HM Amla, and thats that. A simple return catch. Reward for accurate bowling, because he made Amla do something other than normal. Got the batsman jumping quite a way outside off to take a good length ball and flick it through midwicket. All that happens is a leading edge pops back and gives Elliott and New Zealand their first wicket of the day. 89/1
30.3 to MN van Wyk, now he does. Elliott has been tremendous for New Zealand today! Hits the deck, gets extra bounce, moves the ball away. Van Wyk is jumping across looking for midwicket, the edge is taken and pops to the slip fielder, who has been kept in the 31st over. Williamson and his team are doing a very good job keeping things even here. 134/3

Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Martin Guptill, 4.4 ov), 2-102 (Kane Williamson, 23.5 ov), 3-114 (Tom Latham, 27.1 ov), 4-141 (George Worker, 31.2 ov), 5-152 (Grant Elliott, 33.4 ov), 6-156 (Luke Ronchi, 34.6 ov), 7-187 (Doug Bracewell, 41.4 ov), 8-201 (Adam Milne, 44.5 ov), 9-201 (Colin Munro, 45.1 ov), 10-221 (Ish Sodhi, 49.2 ov)
4.4 to MJ Guptill, edged and gone. Steyn strikes early. Beautiful delivery, a touch fuller than the boundary delivery. Guptill looks to punch again through the off side but a thick outside edge is comfortably accepted by van Wyk. Important wicket. 18/1
34.6 to L Ronchi, Amla takes the catch this time. The excellent lines has worked once again. Just outside off, may have shaped away a touch too. Ronchi can't help himself from prodding at it without much intent and gets a thick outside edge, which flies towards slip. Amla gets his hands in a good position and hangs on to his right with the reverse cup.. 156/6
44.5 to AF Milne, drags a short ball from outside off towards midwicket, but he makes poor contact. Very little power in the shot and Miller takes a simple catch at mid-on. Missed a catch earlier. 201/8
31.2 to GH Worker, 125 ks, got im this time. Takes out the middle stump, Worker gets his feet in a tangle and the ball comes back at him a touch and full, the ball beats his inside edge and crashes into the stumps. Timely wicket for SA.. 141/4
33.4 to GD Elliott, taken this time. Rabada must have been under plenty of pressure there. Good length delivery outside off, Elliott walks across and flicks it in the air towards the square leg region. It hangs in the air for a while with the eyes of the world on Rabada's hands. He hangs on though to an easy catch.. 152/5
45.1 to C Munro, drags on, the series win is that much closer for South Africa. It is the slower ball, a little bit of an offcutter. Munro looks to clear his front leg and heave it over the leg side, only ends up with an inside edge leading to the dreaded rattle. 201/9
49.2 to IS Sodhi, picks up the length ball and lofts it, the only problem though is that he has picked out long-on. Looked nice as Sodhi cleared his front leg to go for the big hit, but he hasnt been able to put the power behind it. South Africa seal the series 2-1. 221/10
23.5 to KS Williamson, does him in! Tahir is beside himself as he takes a lap of honour, with his team-mates struggling to catch up. This is the googly, which sneaks under Williamsons bat as he charged down the track looking for the old extra-cover loft. Misses it altogether and has his off stump knocked back. 102/2
41.4 to DAJ Bracewell, thought it was shorter than it was, and Bracewell only pulls the ball down to Amla at deep square leg. Cant sit around plodding when the run-rate is over 10 per over. This one doesnt come off, and NZ sink a little lower. 187/7
