New Zealand 1 Stephen Fleming (capt), 2 Nathan Astle, 3 Lou Vincent, 4 Craig McMillan, 5 Scott Styris, 6 Jacob Oram, 7 Brendon McCullum (wk), 8 Daniel Vettori, 9 Andre Adams, 10 Kyle Mills, 11 Shane Bond, 12 James Franklin

South Africa (probable) 1 Graeme Smith, 2 Boeta Dippenaar, 3 Jacques Kallis, 4 Hereschelle Gibbs, 5 Ashwell Prince, 6 Mark Boucher, 7 Justin Kemp, 8 Shaun Pollock, 9 Charl Langeveldt, 10 Nicky Boje, 11 Andre Nel, 12 Makhaya Ntini

Oram & Styris had injury clouds on them but have both been passed fit. On paper this should be a close contest. My gut feeling is a comforatblish NZ victory tonight... but I might be wrong.

South Africa batted first, and wound up with 201/9 after 50 overs.

So far, looking good for New Zealand, but they'll have to be careful not to lose too many wickets early.

After 23 overs, New Zealand is 110/4. The required run rate is only 3.41, needing only 92 runs. So long as they play smart, they'll win.

Vincent's fifty off 37 was fantastic.

But Oram's slow batting seems to be infectious. They should make it though.

McCullum's stumping dismissal can best be described as daylight robbery. The third umpire, Karl Hurter, a native of Port Elizabeth, gave possibly the most obvious home-town favouring decision I have ever seen. His home should be looted and pilfered by the masses.

Oram, McCullum, and Vettori are all out. Vincent is looking great, but he can't do it by himself.

Awesome.

Thank you Mr Ian Howell, brilliant call.

Just to point out, as the CI comms didn't pick it up, Vettori's dismissal was "caught". The ball hit his pad and missed the bat by a good 6 inches (I am being conservative with this estimate). Ian Howell unsuprisingly is the local umpire. I'm not saying anything, I'm just saying.

45 runs needed from the final ten overs. Vincent could probably do it all by himself, so long as Franklin, Mills, and Adams give him the chance.

Not only is Vincent a fantastic bat... but you couldn't meet a nicer guy, seriously. By far the most accomidating public figure I have ever met.

This has been an awesome innings btw.

Vincent gone after a gallant innings, truely gutsy. The cramp really was hurting him.

I still think we can win this one.

Congratualations South Africa.

I'm not really quiet sure who played a bigger part in this loss, the NZ players or the SA umpires. In any event, NZ had their chances and aside from Lou, they didn't take them. Anyway, NZ will be hardpressed to win the series from here - but you do get the sense watching that they are the better team, they just need to get their ducks in a row.
