BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Lonwabo Tsotsobe1014124.10393113
6.4 to MJ Guptill, and there is the breakthrough, they have bowled too well to not have a wicket early, Tsotsobe pitches it up, and angles it across Guptill, who reaches out to push at it, and feathers it through to AB. 25/1
40.6 to KS Williamson, big strike from Tsotsobe, he got Guptill with a similar delivery earlier, now he has Williamson pushing at an angled length ball outside off, thick edge is snapped up low by a diving AB to his right. 194/5
Morne Morkel904925.44285120
44.1 to JEC Franklin, Franklin falls in pursuit of runs, looks to loft this length delivery over mid off but cannot get it high and far enough to beat Amla who scrambles back to take a well-judged catch. 211/6
49.5 to NL McCullum, off stump is knocked back, Nathan looks to swing a pitched up ball on the leg side, does not connect, the ball was right on target. 249/9
Dale Steyn903714.11323020
46.6 to AM Ellis, right through him at 139 kph, and the middle stump is rattled, Ellis looked to use the angle on this length ball to swing it over midwicket, missed, Steyn did not. 230/7
Robin Peterson1014524.50252010
15.3 to RJ Nicol, Peterson strikes, he has been flighting the ball consistently, lures Nicol into a big shot, he only manages a thick edge that looked to be flying past Kallis at slip, but the great man gets to his right to take it as he tumbles to the ground. 58/2
47.4 to DAJ Bracewell, fine work from AB down the leg side, Bracewell's back leg is out of his crease as he pushes well forward, and AB has the bails off quickly as the ball slips past Bracewell down leg. 234/8
Jean-Paul Duminy502204.40150100
Jacques Kallis704526.42154010
29.6 to BB McCullum, what an outstanding catch at deep point, McCullum had got hold of this length delivery, and had sliced it hard, Peterson did not have much time, he did very well to run to his left and dived to hold on, no reviews needed for that one, Baz has to walk back this time. 137/3
32.6 to JD Ryder, a big wicket for South Africa, Ryder holes out, a short ball just outside off from Kallis, Ryder wants to club that over the leg side, gets a top edge, the ball soars high and towards Graeme Smith at deep square leg, no mistake there, this was shaping up as a good over for New Zealand, but South Africa won't be complaining now. 153/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Kyle Mills702713.85242000

Tim Southee1006416.40307020

Doug Bracewell1016116.10276100
9.5 to JH Kallis, Bracewell has taken out Kallis with the short ball, Kallis looked to go behind square leg as he swivelled late for the pull, but was hurried into the shot and ended up lobbing it to square leg. 35/3
Nathan McCullum702503.57180000
Rob Nicol504318.6090400
