15:21 - QUOTE
"Credit to South Africa for the way they hung in there, we probably should have won it easily, can't take it to the final over against a top bowler like Steyn. Little bit of luck and we'd have got across the line," said NZ skipper Brendon McCullum.
"I was thinking all the time, Steyn is my trump card, I need to bring him back in the game. Fantastic effort from him," said SA skipper Faf du Plessis:
15:19 - MAN-OF-THE-MATCH
JP Duminy, for scoring 86 not out off 43 balls.
My pick would have been Dale Steyn. He won the game out of nowhere for South Africa!

15:10 - Hats off to Dale Steyn (4/17) and Imran Tahir (2/27) who produced some classy bowling when it really mattered.
South Africa must be worried with what happened to Morné Morkel though. Conceding 50 runs off 18 balls is not on and probably would have cost them on nine out of 10 occasions, but for the brilliance of Steyn.
South Africa's next game is against the Netherlands on Thursday, also in Chittagong (11:30).
Join us then for some more commentary!
15:00 - An unbelievable final over from Steyn. I have not witnessed death bowling as good as that in a long while!
As bad as Morné Morkel was in the penultimate over, so good was the "Steyn Remover" conceding only four runs in the final over when all seemed lost...
Steyn finished with 4/17 in four overs!

14:44 - Taylor joins the act. FOUR!
12 needed off 9 ballls...
14:43 - First ball, and Morkel is hit over mid-off by Ronchi for four... sigh
14:42 - Oh dear, Morné Morkel to bowl the penultimate over. He has conceded 36 of 2 overs so far... That's why I'm worried.

14:35 - Steyn back into the attack.

14:16 - Get Taylor out now and this game could be there for the taking!
14:16 - Colin Munro is the next batsman in.
14:14 - WICKET! Steyn gets Williamson for 51. A brilliant diving catch by AB de Villiers on the deep midwicket boundary...
That's why Steyn should have been on earlier!
NZ 117/3 after 13.3 overs.
14:12 - Steyn now on to replace the hapless Morkel.
I fear that Steyn is on too late. He bowled one over so far, and conceded only one run.
14:11 - OVERS 13: NZ 116/2.
50 PARTNERSHIP between Williamson and Taylor, off just 26 balls!
14:10 - Another Tahir googly goes right through Taylor. It beats everything and everyone... No luck for Tahir.
14:08 - No less than 20 runs off that last Morné Morkel over.
14:08 - OVERS 12: NZ 109/2.
They need 62 runs to win off 48 balls.

14:05 - Taylor smacks Morkel down the ground, SIX!
14:04 - HALF-CENTURY for Williamson, coming off only 31 balls. The same amount of balls it took Duminy earlier...

They need 94 to win off 60 balls.
At this stage, the Proteas were 61/3.
13:57 - Williamson now into the 40s... looking in good touch.
13:55 - Some great line and length from Albie. The best I've seen him bowl in a a while...
13:53 - OVERS 9: NZ 68/2.
13:53 - Ross Taylor is the next batsman in.
13:51 - WICKET! McCullum is out for 4, stumped by De Kock off the bowling of Tahir!
McCullum missed a wide delivery, but was out of his ground. Called wide, but you can be dismissed off a wide remember...
NZ 66/2 after 8.4 overs...
13:50 - Tahir drops Williamson who smashes it straight back to him!
13:48 - Leg-spinner Imran Tahir is now on. His spell will be key to the outcome of the match.
13:47 - OVERS 8: NZ 61/1.
Excellent star by Albie. Only four off his first over and a wicket to boot...
13:46 - McCullum almost runs himself our for a duck, but De Villiers narrowly misses the stumps...
13:43 - Danger-man Brendon McCullum is next in.
13:42 - WICKET! Albie strikes with his first ball after Guptill (22) miss-times it and hits it straight up. Wicketkeeper De Kock takes the high catch!
13:42 - Albie Morkel now into the attack.
13:40 - OVERS 7: NZ 57/0.
Black Caps in full command now!
13:39 - 50 up for NZ, coming off 38 balls.
13:37 - Duminy is back on.
13:36 - OVERS 6: NZ 47/0
The end of the Power Play. At this stage the Proteas were 39/2.
Already a first mistake from Du Plessis giving Steyn only one over in the Power Play.
13:34 - Guptill also trying to open up now. He hits Tsotsobe for back-to-back boundaries.
13:33 - Morkel just undid all the good work done by Steyn in his first over.
13:32 - OVERS 5: NZ 35/0
13:32 - 16 runs off the first Morkel over. Also the first SIX by Williamson...
13:29 - Immediately Williamson hoists Morkel over cover for four.
Why take Steyn off after one over in which he conceded only a single?
13:29 - Morné Morkel now in place of Steyn.
13:28 - OVERS 4: NZ 19/0.
13:26 - Audacious stroke from Williamson as he sweeps Tsotsobe over fine leg for four.
13:24 - OVERS 3: NZ 13/0.
13:24 - Terrific start by Steyn. Only one run off his first over.
13:22 - Steyn starts with three four dot balls.
13:20 - First up, Steyn beats the outside edge of Guptill...
13:19 - Done with the Duminy experiment. Dale Steyn is now into the attack.

Decent start by "Lopsy". Only five off his first over.

Key to South Africa defending 170 will be their ability to bowl slower balls. Slower ball bouncers are unplayable on this gripping surface - Alternative Cricket
13:14 - Lonwabo Tsotsobe to bowl the second over.
13:13 - OVERS 1: NZ 7/0.
A full toss off the final ball spoils Duminy's first over.
13:10 - In an interesting move, off-spinner JP Duminy will open the bowling.
Skipper Du Plessis thinking this is "Koppe's" day!
13:09 - Welcome back for the second innings.
Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson are at the crease.

No team has ever successfully chased 171 against South Africa. The top chase against them is 169, scored by NZ in December 2012. #savnz - Firdose Moonda
13:04 - The bookies have now made the Proteas 5-10 favourites from here with the Black Caps at 16-1.
12:58 - OVERS 20: SA 170/6.
Tremendous batting from Duminy, who finished with 86 not out off just 43 balls!
New Zealand need to bat at just over 8.50 runs per over to win.
Join us in a while for the run-chase...
12:57 - Duminy gets two off the final ball.
12:57 - Another FOUR, this time down leg side.
12:56 - FOUR! Duminy goes straight down the ground! In the process he almost knocked down umpire Aleem Dar.
Dar acrobatically dived to get out the way! Good for him and South Africa...
12:55 - Steyn does just that. "Koppe" on strike. Three balls left.
12:54 - Dale Steyn is next in. Just give Duminy the strike!
12:54 - WICKET! Morkel (13) bowled by Southee. SA 159/6 with four balls left.
12:53 - Southee to bowl the final over.
12:52 - OVERS 19: SA 157/5
12:52 - No doubt this is Duminy's best ever T20 performance.
12:51 - SIX! Duminy spoils Mills' figures. 17 off his final over.
12:51 - Duminy gets back-to-back fours to bring up SA's 150, coming off 113 balls.

Hmmm. South Africa were going nowhere, on the verge of elimination, and have now exploded into life. Is this the anti-choke? - 51allout
12:48 - Mills back on for his final over. So far he's only conceded 12.
12:47 - OVERS 18: SA 140/5.
Get to that 160 now!
12:46 - Morkel goes big early on. SIX over extra cover! Must be a strong man to hit it that far at such a square angle.
12:44 - Albie Morkel the next man in.
12:43 - WICKET! Another caught and bowl for Anderson when Miller (6) hits it right back to him. Nothing freaky about that one though...
SA 131/5 after 17. overs.
12:42 - Anderson back on. Lets hope for no more freaky dismissals!

12:39 - Duminy treating Southee with disdain! Boundary after boundary...
12:37 - Duminy pulls Southee for four to get to his HALF-CENTURY, coming off just 31 balls!
Duminy's 7th T20 fifty. Perhaps his best ever?

13 off that last Williamson over.
12:36 - "Koppe" racing to his 50 now.

Quirky pitch pace-wise. I'm sticking head out early and saying SA will defend 145 or so if they can get there! - Rob Houwing
12:33 - OVERS 15: SA 100/4.
At least 50 off the last five overs needed here as off-spinner Kane Williamson comes on.
12:33 - 100 up for SA, coming off 90 balls.
12:32 - Tidy bowling from Mills pegging SA back here...
12:29 - Mills now back on.
12:29 - OVERS 14: SA 97/4.
12:28 - David Miller is next in.
12:27 - WICKET! A bizarre caught and bowl wicket.
Amla (41) smashes Anderson down the ground, strikes Duminy's bat at the other end, and is unbelievably caught by the bowler when the ball jumps up in the air!
Extremely unlucky. Freak dismissal!
12:25 - Duminy gets back-to-back boundaries. Four and then SIX!
12:24 - Amla moves into the 40s now, eying first ever international T20 fifty...
12:24 - Anderson is back on.
12:23 - OVERS 13: SA 83/3.

12:15 - Munro makes a great save on the boundary and prevents Duminy from sweeping McCullum for four.
12:13 - Amla currently has 32 off 29 balls. It's imperative now that he bats through the innings...
12:13 - OVERS 10: SA 61/3.
12:10 - Left-arm seamer Corey Anderson now into the attack.
12:09 - OVERS 9: SA 57/3.
8 per over from here gets SA to 145. 10 per over gets them to 167.
They'll do well to get somewhere in between that....

AB lost his balance and fell over after trying a big shot on the off side...

Power Play now up. This is simply not enough. Only just over a run a ball...

11:52 - OVERS 5: SA 32/2
11:52 - WICKET! Du Plessis (13) is caught in the covers by Nathan McCullum off the bowling of Southee.
Can't blame Faf for having a go just before the Power Play ends.
11:51 - Du Plessis swinging at everything here. Clearly trying to cash in on what remains of the Power Play in the first six overs.
He hits Southee for back-to-back fours.
11:49 - Tim Southee is the next bowler into the attack.
11:48 - OVERS 4: SA 22/1.
Amla, like De Kock, also swings at a wide one. Luckily he misses it completely...

11:44 - OVERS 3: SA 16/1.
11:43 - WICKET! De Kock (4) wildly swings at a wide one from Mills and is caught behind by 'keeper Ronchi.
Proteas not making good use of the Power Play!
11:39 - I'm spotting Albie Morkel already with pads on in the SA dug-out.
That's a good sign. He needs to come in earlier...
11:39 - OVERS 2: SA 10/0.

11:19 - I must say I'm a little surprised that the Kiwis have opted to bowl first. It's no secret that the South Africans struggle when chasing scores down in pressure games, especially in excess of 160...
11:18 - A fast start is essential for South Africa, and lets hope Albie Morkel and David Miller aren't wasted by coming in at the back end of the innings.
New Zealand have won the toss and elected to BOWL
Faf du Plessis says he would wanted to bat anyway. He comes in for Farhaan Behardien, no surprise there. No other change in the South Africa XI. No changes to the NZ XI.
