Thanks for joining our coverage for this game. We'll see you at the next one. Bye-bye.

Ross Taylor is Man of the Match.

7pm Phew! What a match! New Zealand did really well to strange South Africa in the middle and then did really poorly to let them back in. But they edged it out in all the important phases - two solid partnerships in the middle overs when batting, and top-class death bowling to eek out a win. Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy in particular will feel prickly when they try to go to bed tonight - they got in and threw it away. AB de Villiers wasn't new to this situation, and played it sensibly, but fell at a crucial time, as did Miller. That's the end of their winning streak that lasted 12 games.

New Zealand got efforts from all their seniors - Williamson, Taylor, Southee and Boult. Santner was brilliant as well - 2 for 46. They didn't deserve to lose.

Shaheer: "Well, Boult made up for that catch drop with a stunning match winning over"

Southee to Phehlukwayo, FOUR runs

overpithched at leg stump, backs away and whacks it straight back over the umpire....and that's the match. 10 consecutive balls in the blockhole to win by six runs - they showed up when it mattered, those seniors.

Southee to Phehlukwayo, FOUR runs

attempted yorker outside off, after four balls, he goes for the reverse ramp and converts it into a full toss that he gets past the keeper

Southee to Phehlukwayo, no run doesn't! This is phenomenal death overs bowling. As professional as it can get. Another yorker outside off, dug out to cover

This has to go the distance

Southee to Phehlukwayo, no run

another yorker, wide outside off, thick edge down to third man and no run

Southee to Phehlukwayo, no run

yorker outside off, carved straight to extra cover

Southee to Phehlukwayo, no run

yorker at the off stump, drives it to extra cover, bit of confusion as they don't know whether to go for the run - they decide not to

Right. Southee, around the wicket. 15 off 6 balls

Boult to Pretorius, OUT

got him! Boult, you beauty! Misses the yorker marginally, he steps out and the full toss gets higher than it would've been for him, and it crashes into the off stump. Is that the match for New Zealand? What a fantastic knock by Pretorious, South Africa have no business being in this game right now, this is all him

Dwaine Pretorius b Boult 50 (57m 27b 4x4 2x6) SR: 185.18
Boult to Phehlukwayo, 1 run

another yorker at leg stump, you can see why he went for all that money in the auction. Punched down to long-on

Boult to Phehlukwayo, 2 runs

yorker at leg stump, looks to slog this, inside edge rolls to square leg's left and they come back for a second

Boult to Pretorius, 1 run

yorker at middle stump, he backs away to look for the off side gaps but can only squeeze it out to third man. It's a fifty for Pretorious and he will remember it for a long time no matter what the result

He's staying over the wicket, mid-off is up

Boult to Phehlukwayo, 1 run

yorker at leg stump, jams it out to long-on

Boult to Phehlukwayo, no run

nails the yorker at middle stump, he can't do anything with that and bunts it back to the bowler

Boult comes back for what is, surely, the most important over of the game
