Tim Southee1006616.60267120
8.4 to HM Amla, and he's out out of his misery. For the longest time, he has been struggling to get the pace of this pitch and falls utterly perplexed by it. This is a good length ball on middle, from wide of the crease. Amla, thinking it would just come on to the bat, flicks and the ball really is there for this shot. If he was in form, he would have crashed it for four. Here though, he pops a leading edge to mid-off. 41/1
Trent Boult1004714.70315000
49.2 to AB de Villiers, caught at the boundary, Neesham pulls off another superb grab, timing his jump perfectly. He would have fancing hitting this out of the park - full toss on off stump, offering him room to free the arms. But his magical timing fails right at the end. Still, his 85 off 80 balls has given South Africa a proper target to bowl at on a slow pitch. 264/7
Lockie Ferguson1007117.10275330
38.4 to D Pretorius, cleans him up, what a fine yorker from Ferguson! What a follow-up after the bouncer. Pretorius is caught on the back foot, expecting another one to buzz around his ears but he is completely deceived. By the time he realises that and gets low to try and protect his off stump, it is knocked back.. 180/6
Colin de Grandhomme1004024.00343020
22.2 to F du Plessis, taken at mid-off and de Grandhomme does du Plessis again. It's all the pressure the bowler has built, with his remarkable full length and superb accuracy. The batsman tries to hit his way out of trouble and the on-the-up drive goes nowhere good. Southee has to come forward, and dive to convert the chance and he's a very fine catcher. No trouble there. 114/2
22.5 to Q de Kock, taken in the deep by midwicket running to his left, de Grandhomme has changed the game. Two wickets in the over, and it's of the set batsmen. Short ball, there for the pull shot, takes on the boundary, but doesn't come up with the win this time. End of a fine innings - five fifty-plus scores on the trot lest we forget. 115/3
Mitchell Santner1004514.50232000
35.3 to DA Miller, taken at short midwicket! But the umpires want to make sure it has carried. Chris Brown's soft signal is out. This is such lovely bowling from Santner. On a slow pitch, he slows it down still and it finds Miller into the shot a touch too early. Broom's the man with the spotlight on him, diving to his right, getting his hands low and coming up with a fine catch. "He's got it in the end of the fingers," says the third umpire Paul Reiffel but he wants more angles for confirmation. This could be tight. "Happy with that. It's out". 164/5

Kagiso Rabada1003923.90391120
2.5 to DG Brownlie, he is such a treat to watch. Fluid into the crease. effortless pace, and he moves the ball off the seam. This is in the corridor, just outside off, making doubts claw at Brownlie. He pokes at the ball with an open face, thinking why not, and feathers an edge through to the keeper. All of this at 142 kph too. South Africa don't have to worry about life after Dale Steyn. 11/2
24.5 to TG Southee, back of a length on off stump, defends. 82/8
Wayne Parnell803324.12292100
1.3 to TWM Latham, oh he looks utterly forlorn. Not merely because he's given South Africa just what they wanted, but also because he is struggling for form and now he goes for a duck. Takes on a back of a length delivery outside off - the same one he has been leaving - and carves it straight to point. Academic. 2/1
23.5 to JDS Neesham, extra bounce does him. Neesham sets up for the pull shot, but it is onto him too quickly and skews off splice of the bat back to the bowler who takes the catch, low to his right. 77/7
Andile Phehlukwayo501222.40221010
14.5 to KS Williamson, chops it on! He's been out of nick all innings, and even his favourite dab to third man goes awry. The thing that does him in is the seam movement that South Africa have managed so consistently - this time Lucky nips the ball back in cramping the batsman and then taking him out. De Villiers runs in and hugs his bowler and just doesn't wanna let go. Aw.. 48/3
16.6 to NT Broom, simple catch at first slip and Amla has made amends for his earlier drop, he's particularly chuffed with this turn of events. It's that lovely bit of seam movement again, under lights on a pitch that seems to have changed completely. Lucky hits back of a length in the corridor of uncertainty, Broom pushes at it with hard hands and he has to walk off. 51/5
Dwaine Pretorius5.21530.93270000
15.3 to LRPL Taylor, pins him! It's Pretorius' turn to take out an NZ lynch pin. Taylor plays across the line of a full and straight delivery. He misses, the ball strikes pad, low and in front of middle stump. No surprise the umpire's finger shot up. 48/4
19.3 to MJ Santner, takes the risk, it doesn't come off. What a spell of bowling from Pretorius. Gets curl in the air, into the left-hander and that's more than enough to hurtle past the inside edge and into off stump. Expansive strike, meant to take the ball over mid-on, becomes Santner's downfall. 58/6
32.2 to TA Boult, the captain takes the catch to end the match. What a game for South Africa. They batted through a middle-order collapse and now have bundled New Zealand out for 112 on their home turf. it all ends when Boult takes a swing at a back of a length ball on off stump and top-edges it for mid-off to run in and finish proceedings. 112/10
Imran Tahir412315.75132110
27.6 to LH Ferguson, too good. That's a top over of legspin. Shows off all his tricks and gets him with another wrong 'un. The trick to this ball is in the line. it's just a shade outside off, drags him across to create the gap between bat and pad, considering Ferguson didn't pick it off the hand. He plays for turn, it's in the wrong direction and is bowled neck and crop. 95/9
