All|Overs 1-50
4

Morris to Williamson, FOUR, top shot from Williamson. Doesn't need any sighters. Full and outside off, Williamson leans forward and reams the drive through over, no need to run for those

W

Morris to Glenn Phillips, out aught by de Kok!! Debutant's stay at the rease has been ut short by Morris. Pay full ball down leg, Phillips slogged aross the line, in the proess gets an inside edge. QDK dives low to his left and grabs a smart ath. Glenn Phillips de Kok b Morris 5(11)

W

Morris to Munro, out Bowled!! Two in two for Morris. What a start for him. Munro's poor form ontinues. Looks for an ambitious loft down the ground. It was a full ball on the stumps, he misses and the ball sneaks through the bat-pad gap to rash the stumps. The Kiwis are in early trouble. Munro b Morris 0(1)

6

Paterson to Tom Bruce, SIX, Bruce breaks the lull. Sends it high and handsome into the long-on stands. A fuller length delivery in the arc for Bruce, Bruce opens his stance and hammers it over long-on

4

Morris to Tom Brue, FOUR, expertly played. Gets on top of this bak of a length delivery and steers it past point. Ruins a good over from Morris

4

to Tom Bruce, FOUR, Bruce finds the gap this time. A short of length delivery outside off, Bruce reaches out and spanks it through cover

4

to Williamson, FOUR, he's spotted the short ball so well and gyrated into a pull through long leg

W

to Williamson, out Caught by Parnell!! This is a wicket and a half. He nailed the pull in this over before but ends up chipping it down to square leg. Could have rolled his wrists over but the short boundaries lured him into going hard on the pull. Did so but couldn't get it over the fielder. Williamson c Parnell b 13(13) [4s-2]

6

to Tom Bruce, SIX, pulled over square leg. Not the biggest boundary but he'd picked the length well there

W

to Corey Anderson, out Caught by de Kock!! Oh, look at that chance.. it's a real steepler.. de Kock calls for it and pouches it comfortably. A top-edge on this cross-batted mow from Anderson. Expected the ball to skid on and hit the middle of his bat. Corey Anderson c de Kock b 6(10)

4

to Tom Bruce, FOUR, this is a bad ball. Short, wide, Bruce waits and cuts it up and over backward point

W

to Tom Bruce, out Bowled!! Through him! Doesn't read the googly at all. The ball in from a length, cuts him into two halves and breaches the bat-pad gap. Tom Bruce b 33(27) [4s-3 6s-2]

W

to Ronchi, out Caught by de Kock!! That should be it for South Africa. Big wicket. Another googly by but he's manages to get the outside edge on this. Drifting away, making Ronchi fetch but then turns in and Ronchi wasn't quite there on the drive. Safely caught behind by the keeper. Ronchi c de Kock b 0(1)

4

to Santner, FOUR, just the placement and Tahir wasn't as quick at third man. Santner waited and used the width to steer it beside backward point, only for Tahir to fumble and let one through

W

to Santner, out Caught by Amla!! New Zealand in an Auckland soup.. another wicket. Driven straight to Amla at cover. Santner looked sort of confused between going for the uppish drive or placing it wide of Amla. In the end, he just went through it and popped it low to Amla'a right. A dive did the job. Santner c Amla b 5(6) [4s-1]

6

to C de Grandhomme, SIX, doesn't matter if it's a googly because de Grandhomme has slogged at it so hard, and has gone with the turn in doing so. A maximum over deep mid-wicket

6

to C de Grandhomme, SIX, the straight boundaries are anyway underwhelming. de Grandhomme shimmies out and tonks one over long-on. Went cross-batted and got it over the ropes

W

to C de Grandhomme, out Caught by Duminy!! That is a brilliant piece of bowling. Two sixes in a row and so de Grandhomme had the license to come down the track. Does so pretty early though, allowing to fire it wide outside off. de Grandhomme is found reaching out and ends up carving a catch to deep cover. C de Grandhomme c Duminy b 15(7) [6s-2]

6

to Southee, SIX, he's such a pretty sight when he bats. On the pads and Southee has picked it over square leg!

6

to Southee, SIX, now this has been overadjusted. Short and wide outside off, Southee throws his bat at it and clears third man

6

to Southee, SIX, goes through with the pull, top-edges it over the keeper's head and gets a six! Anything will do now. New Zealand need 84 runs in 36 balls

4

to Ben Wheeler, FOUR, tossed up delivery, dips and takes Wheeler's inside edge en route to the fine leg fence

W

to Ben Wheeler, out Bowled!! Fourth wicket for . Bowls a quick delivery which skids on - no pitch-time to turn - and gets through Wheeler. Right through his defences. Ben Wheeler b 6(6) [4s-1]

W

to Southee, out Bowled!! All over. 's five-wicket haul hands South Africa a big win by 78 runs. Bowls a googly, Southee looks to swat it away but misses and loses his stumps. Southee b 20(6) [6s-3]

4

to Amla, leg byes, FOUR, appeal for LBW, but the swing was taking the ball down the leg-side, Amla was looking to flick and missed, brushed his pads on the way to the keeper

4

Wheeler to Amla, FOUR, easy pickings for Amla, length delivery on his pads, he prods across and flicks it behind square on the on-side for a boundary

4

Wheeler to Amla, FOUR, Wheeler overcompensates and bowls a short and wide ball outside off, Amla rocks back and hammers it over point, no need to run for those

W

to de Kock, out Caught by Santner!! de Kock has found the fielder in the deep to perfection. Short of a length and on the stumps, de Kock swivels across and pulls it high and down the throart of Santner, couldn't have come straighter, de Kock falls for a duck. de Kock c Santner b 0(4)

6

to du Plessis, SIX, nicely played by du Plessis, gets down low, uses 's pace and lobs it over short fine leg, it's a short boundary over there and the ball goes over the ropes

4

Wheeler to Amla, FOUR, full and wide from Wheeler, Amla threw his bat at that, gets a thick edge that goes in the gap between the keeper and first slip

4

Wheeler to Amla, FOUR, Wheeler goes short and wide now, Amla stays back and cracks it in front of square on the off-side, beats the infield and rolls away to the fence

4

Wheeler to Amla, FOUR, too straight and on Amla's pads, whipped away in front of square on the on-side, hat-trick of boundaries for Amla

4

Wheeler to Amla, FOUR, that's a fourth successive boundary, on a good length and just outside off, Amla is drawn into the drive, can't cojntrol the shot - hits it in the air but finds the gap behind square on the off-side

4

to du Plessis, FOUR, slower delivery from , but the width was there. du Plessis gets forward and thumps it through cover for a boundary

4

to Amla, FOUR, too full and too straight from , ends up drifting onto Amla's pads, flicked away in front of square on the on-side for a boundary

4

to Amla, FOUR, overcompensates! Drags his length short and on the stumps, Amla swivels across and pulls it over square leg for another boundary

OT

de Grandhomme to Amla, 1 run, on a good length and well outside off, worked away in front of square on the on-side for a run

6

to du Plessis, SIX, tossed up on the stumps, du Plessis comes down the track, doesn't get anywhere close to the ball, swings through the line and just has enough to clear the fielder at long-on

6

to du Plessis, SIX, tossed up just outside off, du Plessis backs away and chips it over long-off, didn't get the required timing - but has enough to clear the fielder

4

to Amla, FOUR, short and wide from , Amla climbs onto the cut and sends it racing past point, no need to run for those

4

to Amla, SIX, slower ball on off, Amla makes room outside leg and sends it soaring over long-off, that's a mighty fine hit

W

de Grandhomme to du Plessis, out Lbw!! That's a gift for de Grandhomme, it was a juiy full-toss, du Plessis was down on his knees as he attempted the lap sweep, missed was struk bang in front of the stumps. The partnership has been broken, New Zealand needed this wiket badly. du Plessis lbw b de Grandhomme 36(25) [4s-1 6s-3]

4

to Amla, byes, FOUR, that will go down as a chance, Amla came down the track, doesn't get to the pitch and swings across the line. Ronchi can't collect it cleanly and muffs the chance

4

to de Villiers, FOUR, AB gets inside the line, tosses one on his pads, swept away over short fine for a boundary

4

Wheeler to de Villiers, FOUR, fullish and outside off, too easy for de Villiers. He extends his arms and lifts it over cover

W

Wheeler to Amla, out Caught by Tom Bruce!! Wheeler has the final laugh. After getting thrashed for 17 runs in his second over, he comes back and prises out Amla. A fantastic innings comes to an end. Cleverly bowled by Wheeler, saw the batsman back away to leg, tucks him for room by shortening his length, Amla is hustled for pace too. Ends up mistiming the pull straight to deep square leg, where Bruce takes a simple catch. Amla c Tom Bruce b Wheeler 62(43) [4s-9 6s-1]

4

Wheeler to de Villiers, FOUR, Wheeler's rador goes all awry. Spills one down leg, de Villiers gets inside the line and tickles it very fine

6

to Duminy, SIX, boom! Duminy doesn't take much of a time. Gets into business rightaway. Scurries out of his crease, meets the pitch and tonks it over long-on, went soaring into the stands

6

de Grandhomme to de Villiers, SIX, de Villiers goes big this time. Baks away to the leg-side, Grandhomme dishes out a fuller length delivery on the stumps, de Villiers powers it into the deep mid-wiket stands

W

de Grandhomme to de Villiers, out aught by Ben Wheeler!! One shot too many for de Villiers. Birthday boy's ameo is over. Tries to do the enore by staying leg-side, Grandhomme is smart, hurled it full and wide of off. de Villiers threw his bat, had to protrat his hands at it. Only manages to slie it to mid-off - off the toe-end. Wheeler pouhes it safely. de Villiers Ben Wheeler b de Grandhomme 26(17) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

to Duminy, FOUR, a buffet ball from . Short and ample width on offer, Duminy cashes the cheque by bringing out his carving knife and slices it over point

4

to Duminy, FOUR, overcorrects and slants one down leg, Duminy says thank you and swivel pulls it past short fine

6

Wheeler to Duminy, SIX, there's no leeway on this ground. If you miss your length, you are going to get punished. Wheeler misses his yorker this time, Duminy gets underneath it and thumps it over long-on

6

Wheeler to Behardien, SIX, Behardien is on the move now. Winds up big time, takes this length delivery and clubs it over deep mid-wicket

W

to Behardien, out Caught by Corey Anderson!! In quest for quick runs, Behardien departs. A fuller length delivery in the slot, he doesn't get enough oomph behind his attempted loft. Finds long-off to perfection. Behardien c Corey Anderson b 8(7) [6s-1]

6

to C Morris, SIX, whacked! A short ball, sat up nicely for Morris, who rocked back and clouts it fiercely over deep mid-wicket

W

to C Morris, out Duminy Run Out!! JPD sacrifices his wicket for the team's cause. Swings blindly to this leg-cutter, misses and is called for a bye. Ronchi collects the ball and lobs a throw to the bowler, who takes the stump the stumps down to catch JPD short of his crease. Duminy run out (Ronchi) 29(16) [4s-2 6s-2]

4

to Parnell, FOUR, what a way to finish the innings. A fuller length delivery down leg, Morris clears his front leg and powers the flick over square leg
