New Zealand v South Africa tour thread

Just turned on to the ODI that is being played and NZ had made 208. A few minutes ago SA were cruising along at 117-1 and they have now lost 4 wickets for a further 9 and are now 126-5 on a pitch providing a fair bit of assistance for the seamers.

12 needed of the last over. I'm going to give a running commentary here cos I feel like it.

Southee to bowl..........................................

1st ball to Phelukwelo , ball cuts away from the left hander and they run a bye as the dying ball makes it difficult for the keeper to collect. AB now on strike.

11 needed

2nd ball to AB, a slower ball bouncer that is called a wide and another bye too. That means 9 from 5

2nd (after a wide) Southee to Phelukwelo and another slower ball, the young left hander waits back in his crease and a weird typeof tennis swipe sees the ball disappear straight over long on for 6!

3rd ball, a fine comeback from Southee and he beats the man 0 run.

4th ball, another fine attempted yorker but on the pads and it is a leg-bye.

2 from 2 needed. AB back on strike and a bit of a deliberation between Williamson and Southee.

Well that is pretty decisive, Southee can't quite get the yorker in and AB creams it beautifully over the top and it is a boundary. SA win by 4 wickets. Fine finish!

Interesting spell from Southee. I'm a big critic of his, but despite getting it a bit wrong in the last over, without Southee today, NZ wouldn't have stood a chance.

Pretty much stopped bowling seam-up and started bowling medium pace off-spinners to great effect.

When SA got to 5 down for 126 I tought NZ were going to win but AB and Phelukwelo played excellently and you're right about Southee. I think Southee's problem is in test cricket where he is a bit penny plain apart from more helpful tracks at home, where he is neither quick enough or quite skillful enough to work over high class batsmen.

An innings that transcended the pitch. Very good game but I feel for NZ having done so much to get back in there. The keeper, Latham, dropped a really tough chance early on off Lucky, who was.

Taylor century helps tie the series despite some late heroics from Prestorius.

Interesting Morkel is back and Bavuma retains his place.

Surely de Bruyn based on his domestic form deserves a gig ahead of him.

SA meanwhile go 2-1 up in the ODI series with AB and de Kock leading the way with the bat and the pace attack wreaking havoc to dismiss the kiwis for 112.

AB is now the quickest to 9000 runs off 9005 balls - not a bad ss.

A much better bowling attack that he faced in this game than in the 200+ he scored against the Windie Pops.

Well amazing because 180 while chasing is good but his 237 not out was much better innings in ODI

Near the record in ODI?
Virat 183 while chasing
MSD 183 while chasing
Watto 185* while chasing is the best with 15 sixes in 95 balls
Good Question.Rohits 209 and 264,(209 included 16 sixes) both innings while bats first

A bit of an anti-climax for a series decider.

I don't hold out much hope for NZ in this series. The South Africans have the only seam attack who are equally at home on NZ-type wickets. I personally think they should have gone for 4 seamers + Duminy, but suspect they'll have enough to take home the Dunedin Test (weather permitting).

NZ will need something special from someone with the bat (unlikely to be Raval or Nicholls) so Latham, Williamson, Taylor and Watling better be on their A Game.

Could depend on the toss. NZ seamers look okay on paper. Morkel selection is a bit of a risk. Pressure is surely on Bavuma.

I thought your line was there's no pressure on him because he can't be dropped?
