Trent Boult40822.00160000
2.4 to Q de Kock, straight to the fielder at deep square leg! There was one fielder patrolling the whole leg side boundary and de Kock picks him out. A fuller than a good length delivery on middle, de Kock picks the length early, goes back and pulls. Gets plenty on it but that's the long boundary. Straight to the fielder. Six on the Highveld. Out in New Zealand.. 15/1
18.1 to F Behardien, straight to long-off. Caught on the boundary. Full outside off from Boult, Behardien gets underneath that easily but lofts the ball straight to the fielder. Should have hit that for six. 171/5
Ben Wheeler4049112.2598200
13.4 to HM Amla, taken this time. Back of a length delivery on leg, follows Amla as he backs away. Amla is cramped for room, harried for pace and all he can do is mis-time a pull to deep square leg. The fielder comes in, settles underneath and takes a comfortable catch. Great start to the tour for Amla. Well bowled from Wheeler. 123/3
Tim Southee4047011.7586210
Mitchell Santner4040010.0031300
Colin de Grandhomme302227.3350110
11.1 to F du Plessis, oh no. That's plumb. That's probably the worst ball he'll bowl to get a wicket. A high full toss on middle and leg, Faf gets down to scoop over fine leg. Misses the ball and is rapped right in front. Easy call. Not a bad idea again, execution isn't great. Fine margins.. 102/2
15.3 to AB de Villiers, mis-timed and gone! Massive wicket this. AB backs away again, de Grandhomme goes full on off. AB ends up stretching out for the ball because of that initial movement. Even with mid-off up, AB can't clear him. Toe-ended to mid-off. Another bad delivery that gets a wicket. He actually took pace off that, so credit to the bowler.. 145/4

Chris Morris311023.33142000
2.1 to GD Phillips, Phillips' stuttering innings ends. Full and quick on leg, Phillips' feet are nowhere but he has created enough pressure to know he has to attempt a swipe across the line. Gets a thick inside edge and de Kock gets across easily to collect. Excellent line from Morris. On point so far have been SA. 10/1
2.2 to C Munro, bowled 'im. First up. Full and straight from Morris, Munro looks to send his first ball over long-on but is undone by some inswing. The ball creeps in between a big gap between bat and pad to knock back off stump.. 10/2
Dane Paterson201306.5050100
Wayne Parnell3040013.3341410
Andile Phehlukwayo301936.3393010
6.3 to KS Williamson, picks out the fielder. Big wicket. A short delivery on leg, sits up for Williamson. Doesn't go all into the pull or keep it down or find the gap. All he does is picks out the square leg fielder to perfection. An easy reverse-cupped catch. 38/3
9.3 to CJ Anderson, skied and taken. Is that it for NZ? Full on middle from Phehlukwayo, Anderson can only top-edge a heave and the ball goes straight up. De Kock shunts everyone out of the way, gets underneath it and takes a comfortable catch.. 55/4
11.6 to MJ Santner, straight to cover. Lovely catch from Amla. Full and wide outside off, Santner stays in his crease and drives to Amla at cover, who dives low to his right to take a sharp catch. NZ slump further.. 68/7
Imran Tahir3.502456.26121200
10.3 to TC Bruce, cleaned 'im up and that should be the game too. A ripping googly, the length is dragged back to create enough room for the ball to turn. Goes through a massive gap between bat and pad and knocks back off stump. Sets off on his celebratory run.. 60/5
10.4 to L Ronchi, gone first ball. Another googly from Tahir. This one doesn't turn too much. Ronchi plays for some, plays inside the line and the ball takes the outside edge. De Kock collects cleanly, sending Tahir on another run of joy.. 60/6
12.4 to C de Grandhomme, excellent bowling. Sees de Grandhomme coming and fires it wide outside off. He is too far from the ball to control, so he skews a slice and picks out the man at the sweeper cover boundary.. 80/8
14.3 to BM Wheeler, another wicket. Another long sprint of glee. The quick topspinner on leg, goes through Wheeler's defense and cleans up middle and leg stump. 106/9
14.5 to TG Southee, that's it. Tahir wraps up a dominant win for South Africa with a T20 five-for. A googly on middle and leg, the ball goes through Southee's mow across the line and hits the stumps again. Tahir can't be stopped.. 107/10
