Smith flatters to deceive
South Africa skipper Graeme Smith started tentatively, but was done in by a good length ball from Daryl Tuffey.
The ball pitched on middle and off, and Smith, early into the shot, lofted it to mid-on, where Vettori held a good catch.

Kallis steadies South Africa
One-down batsman Jacques Kallis batted with authority and shared a 52-run stand for the second wicket with the other opener, Hashim Amla, to ensure that the Proteas did not lose wickets in the initial overs.
After playing some elegant strokes for fours off Shane Bond and Tuffey, he fell for 39.

De Villiers shows the way
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.
