South Africa skipper Graeme Smith started tentatively, but was done in by a good length ball from Daryl Tuffey.

AB de Villiers top-scored with an unbeaten 70 as the Proteas got back in contention for a semi-final berth after the 55-run loss to Sri Lanka two days back at the same venue.

De Villiers played a solid 76-ball knock, which included nine fours, for his 19th one-day fifty. He was hardly troubled by the Kiwi bowlers and deservedly hit the winning runs -- a four -- as the home team ended up with 217 for 5 in 41.1 overs.
