South Africa need 34 off four overs. And Boult comes on to bowl one of his two overs left

29.6IS Sodhi to AB de Villiers, 1 run, tosses it up on off stump, he defends through cover to retain strike.
29.5IS Sodhi to AL Phehlukwayo, 1 run, drifts it across the left-hander and Andile continues to sweep, on length, finding a single to deep square leg.
29.4IS Sodhi to AL Phehlukwayo, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, misfield at short fine leg, on top of a poor ball down the leg side. Andile mistimes his sweep, but still he manages just enough to beat Taylor on his left.
29.3IS Sodhi to AB de Villiers, 1 run, gets into the sweep, and this ball is seriously full for the shot. Has to make the connection, to save himself from an lbw, and he does so. Single to deep square leg.
29.2IS Sodhi to AL Phehlukwayo, LEG BYES, 1 run, slider, and the left-hander misreads it, going for the sweep. It goes on with the angle outside off, hits his pad and wanders off for a leg bye.
29.1IS Sodhi to AB de Villiers, 1 run, full delivery outside off, de Villiers drives along the ground to deep point.
End of over 29. 3 runs this over. 165/6 after 174 balls.

That's drinks, with South Africa needing 111 runs in 19 overs with nine wickets in hand. Seems fairly straightforward, but they'll probably wait until Santner and Boult have finished their spells to celebrate

Vangmay: "I absolutely love the pitches in NZ for the ODIs. They're the only ones I think (except for those used in the last Ind vs NZ series) which consistently provide a good balance between bat and ball along with the conditions there. It's the only country in the world left where a score of 230-280 in ODIs is defendable."
