commentary

Over 103. 1 run. Bowler: Jacques Kallis. New Zealand: 275/10(rr 2.67)

OUT! Run Out. Kallis to Boult. Yorker, outside off stump moves in front pushing, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Steyn, by de Villiers. A bizarre way to end a bizarre game. Boult squeeze one down to fine leg and they want two, but Steyn has a good arm and Martin has no chance once he fires it in for de Villiers to whip off the bails. South Africa went through the gears this afternoon and regained some of the swagger they had on Day 1 with Steyn in particular bowling like a man possessed. For New Zealand, they can take some positives from this game that they wouldn't have believed possible after the first hour. Notably, the excellent hundred made by Dean Brownlie and the obdurate 42 compiled by BJ Watling. Nonetheless, there is still a lot of work to do for this young side before the teams meet again on Monday at Port Elizabeth.

Over 102. 5 runs. Bowler: Dale Steyn. New Zealand: 274/9(rr 2.69)

OUT! Bowled. Steyn to Franklin. Back of a length, outside off stump moves in front pulling, hit body. This is a very clumsy wicket as Franklin tries to work it into the onside, but only manages to let the ball bobble off his body onto the stumps. Chris Martin is in next, so this should be over pretty soon.

FOUR! Steyn to Franklin. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs.

Steyn to Franklin. Short, outside off stump ducked, left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Villiers.

OUT! Bowled. Steyn to Patel. Back of a length, middle stump backing away cutting, bottom edge. A classic tail ender's wicket. Patel was like a rabbit in headlights facing Steyn and kept backing away. It's eventually proved his undoing as he chops one on to his stumps to leave New Zealand 8 wickets down.

Petersen hangs on to this one as Philander suddenly discovers his rhythm. Better batsmen than Bracewell would have struggled to deal with that one, and he actually does well to get bat on it at all.
