Lonwabo Tsotsobe923614.00364110
4.5 to MJ Guptill, is that you Jonty? Nope, it's du Plessis! Shades of the old man there at backward point, it was short and wide outside off and Guptill had to chase it, hit it hard and du Plessis had barely enough time to react, fling himself to his left and catch it mid-air, both hands behind the ball. Coaches, you might want to keep a clipping of this. 13/1
Dale Steyn722804.00303000
Marchant de Lange914645.11353110
21.2 to BB McCullum, the change of bowling does the trick! Soft dismissal in the end, it was pitched up, McCullum looked to be driving straight but instead he got a leading edge that lobbed to backward point. 74/3
41.3 to JEC Franklin, soft dismissal for Franklin, de Lange comes round the wicket and pitches it up, Franklin tries to clear the infield but ends up spooning it to Amla at short cover who takes it easily. 169/6
41.5 to AM Ellis, pace, pace and pace! Too good for Ellis, de Lange bangs it in short and forces Ellis to play at it, tries to fend it off but ends up lobbing it off the top end of the bat to first slip. Amla seems to be everywhere!. 171/7
43.5 to NL McCullum, how many Amlas are there on the field? Body double or not, he has taken another catch, Nathan McCullum chips it in the air straight to short midwicket, de Lange has four on debut!. 189/8
Robin Peterson1013623.60401110
44.3 to KD Mills, LBW appeal is referred, Peterson bowls it a touch flat, Mills was forward to defend and the ball hits him low on the pads quite adjacent to the leg stump, no evidence of an inside edge, Illingworth gave him out and the third umpire agrees. 195/9
46.6 to MD Bates, no five-for for the debutant de Lange! Peterson bowls this one which goes through with the arm and hits him flush on the front pad adjacent to the stumps. 206/10
Johan Botha702814.00222020
13.5 to RJ Nicol, thin outside edge! Botha cuts back on the pace and gives it more air outside off, has Nicol poking at it outside off and de Villiers pouches the edge. 45/2

Kyle Mills814115.12252111
27.4 to HM Amla, that's Mills' 200th ODI wicket! Soft dismissal for Amla, he makes room and tries to swat it over the on side but gets a top edge that's taken by Brendon McCullum. 138/2
Michael Bates602814.66224000
31.2 to JA Morkel, Morkel falls going for the big hit over the on side! Pitched up on the pads and he tried to whip that over deep square leg, timed it well but he picked de Grandhomme at the edge of the circle. 155/3
Nathan McCullum1003503.50321000
Andy McKay804005.00276010
Andrew Ellis603515.83203200
15.3 to WD Parnell, through the gate! Bates can't believe it and neither can Parnell because he missed a straight one, Parnell was trying to tuck it to the on side but was far too early on the shot, the ball hits off and middle. 80/1
Rob Nicol3.201424.20120100
39.5 to F du Plessis, bit of a lazy shot by du Plessis, the flatter delivery from Nicol, he tried to work it through the on side but it looked like hitting him in front of leg, not sure if he reviewed it or not. 188/4
41.1 to JP Duminy, a bit late in the day for New Zealand, Duminy chips down the track but is beaten in flight, he nearly ended up yorking himself and it went through and hit the stumps. 195/5
