Commentary (New Zealand innings)

That's it from us for the day! Do join us on the 22nd Jan for the second ODI between the two sides which will be played at Kimberley. Till then, good bye!

James Franklin is the Man of the Match for his 47* and a good spell with the ball.

Brendon McCullum says he is satisfied with the boys, he thinks the entire team did well and they deserved to win. He adds that they enjoyed the victory and hopes to continue the winning momentum. He says they are more confident with the ODIs than with the Tests and is looking forward to win the series. He applauds Franklin for holding onto his nerves and powering his team past the finish line.

It was a much needed victory for the Kiwis and this will boost their morale for sure. AB de Villiers says they were just a bit unlucky and is dissapointed with their batting performance. He expects it will be a better show from them in the next match and hopes to bounce back in with a win.

The Kiwis were off to a bad start but Watling played a good innings and added 45 runs along with some good contributions from the McCullum brothers. After that, it was the Franklin show as he took his side home along with some good contribution from Mills who also smashed 26 runs but once he departed, it looked way too far as New Zealand had lost 9 wickets already. McCleneghan hung in there and Franklin did the rest with some blistering shots.

What a contest this one turned out to be! The Kiwis are the victorious ones for the day as Franklin(47*) holds on to his nerves and takes his side home with a much needed victory. Good show from the Proteas as well but not enough to stop the Kiwis win this one.

Commentary (South Africa innings)

McClenaghan was brilliant on debut as he picked up 4/20. He got the ball to nip off the surface and troubled the batsmen. The Kiwis have done the good work with the ball but it's just half the work done! Their batsmen need to make sure they complement the bowlers well and power them to a moral-boosting victory. Join us in a while for the chase!

du Plessis played a cautious and a crucial knock of 57 but the period after the Batting Powerplay proved to be crucial for the visitors as they snapped up five wickets for just 32 runs! Kleinveldt played a cameo of 26 off 20 balls at the death which brought some respectability to the Proteas!

A good effort form the Kiwis to restrict the Proteas to a moderate total! McClenaghan and Mills provided the perfect start as they removed the openers. Williamson then bowled a disciplined spell in the middle overs. The South African batsmen never got the momentum going.

46.2 K Williamson to R Kleinveldt, OUT! Williamson finishes off the innings! The Proteas are all out for 208! Length delivery on off, spinning in. Kleinveldt gets down on one knee and goes for a slog sweep, doesn't connect it well and helps it to deep square leg where Mills judges it well and pouches it. 208/10

46.1 K Williamson to R Kleinveldt, Quicker and flatter on middle and leg, Kleinveldt drills it to mid on. 208/9

That's it from us for the day! Do join us on the 22nd Jan for the second ODI between the two sides which will be played at Kimberley. Till then, good bye!

James Franklin is the Man of the Match for his 47* and a good spell with the ball.

Brendon McCullum says he is satisfied with the boys, he thinks the entire team did well and they deserved to win. He adds that they enjoyed the victory and hopes to continue the winning momentum. He says they are more confident with the ODIs than with the Tests and is looking forward to win the series. He applauds Franklin for holding onto his nerves and powering his team past the finish line.

It was a much needed victory for the Kiwis and this will boost their morale for sure. AB de Villiers says they were just a bit unlucky and is dissapointed with their batting performance. He expects it will be a better show from them in the next match and hopes to bounce back in with a win.

The Kiwis were off to a bad start but Watling played a good innings and added 45 runs along with some good contributions from the McCullum brothers. After that, it was the Franklin show as he took his side home along with some good contribution from Mills who also smashed 26 runs but once he departed, it looked way too far as New Zealand had lost 9 wickets already. McCleneghan hung in there and Franklin did the rest with some blistering shots.

What a contest this one turned out to be! The Kiwis are the victorious ones for the day as Franklin(47*) holds on to his nerves and takes his side home with a much needed victory. Good show from the Proteas as well but not enough to stop the Kiwis win this one.
