New Zealand tour of South Africa got off to a poor start, losing to South Africa by 6 wicket in the opening T20I on Friday at Durban.
AB de Villiers won the toss for South Africa, electing to field first. Williamson and Guptill played out the initial movement, and then attacked from the 3rd over to notch up 56 runs in the power play to give the Black Caps the perfect start with the bat. Phangiso made the first breakthrough for South Africa when he had Williamson stumped with his score on 42 off 21 balls. Worker and Guptill continued the momentum, building the perfect foundation for New Zealand. A bizarre run out of Guptill in the 13th over swung the momentum South Africa’s way as Wiese struck the next ball to send Munro back to the pavilion without scoring. The South African bowling attack got the squeeze on, restricting the scoring in the latter overs to have New Zealand at 151/8 after 20 overs, well short of what they would’ve hoped for at the halfway mark. Radaba, Wiese and Phangiso picked up two wickets each for South Africa.
South Africa opened the innings with the experienced pairing of van Wyk and Amla, putting on a 35 runs opening stand before van Wyk played one attacking shot too many, caught with his score on 19. Amla and de Villiers showed yet another master class out in the middle, picking off the Black Cap bowlers at will. De Villiers was caught in the outfield with his score on 33 off 21 balls. Amla dit a good job of anchoring the innings, while feeding the strike to Rilee Rossouw who blasted 38 off 19 balls before giving his wicket away in the 17th over. Amla lost his wicket just 2 runs short of his fifty, leaving Behardien and Miller to take South Africa over the line, which they did comfortably with 13 deliveries to spare.
