New Zealand won the toss and will be bowling first. Good toss to win as the pitch is likely to ease out as the match progresses.

Here are the playing XIs

New Zealand: RJ Nicol, MJ Guptill, BB McCullum*, KS Williamson, BJ Watling†, JEC Franklin, NL McCullum, GD Elliott, JDS Neesham, KD Mills, MJ McClenaghan

South Africa: G Smith, H Amla, C Ingram, AB, Faf, Q De Kock, R McLaren, R Peterson, R Kleinveldt, D Steyn, L Tsotsobe
 
SA in a bit of a bother at 37/3.

Interestingly enough all 3 wickets to have gone down have been LBWs.

Considering the NZ ODI side is signfiicantly different from the Test side, this may not be as one-sided of a match as many of us would think :)
 
Should be a close game, NZ should look to play out steyn without too many risks and look to play the first 20 carefully.
 
Top stuff by NZ bowlers. Hope the batsmen don't screw it up.
 
How did Williamson end up with 4 wickets? Pitch must be assisting the bowlers quite a lot.
 
NZ bats doing their best to stuff it up
 
Coverage out in NZ only or did cameras stuff up in SA?
 
Sauron messing with NZ television stations?
 
Honestly, who cares

NZ are rubbish and no teams or fans outside the subcontinent seem to take ODIs seriously anymore.

Blame the 5 match ODI series more triangular series are needed... Sucks that the aussies scrapped the CB series loved to watch it every summer :(

Such shoddy television coverage...
Power issues at the ground causing havoc with the television feed.

Surprised that anyone is even taking this ODI series seriously. I'm checking the score occasionally on Cricinfo.
 
Just caught that ball by McLaren to bowl Mills, pretty awesome delivery. Inswinging yorker.
 
WTH is trying to play a shot outside off stump, just leave the ball.
 
difficult chance, should have tried with one hand
