    South Africa go 2-0 up

    South Africa registered their 11th successive ODI win at Cape Town by defeating New Zealand by 19 runs in a low-scoring encounter.

    South Africa had a bad start, after electing to bat, by losing their debutant Puttick for a duck. Though Smith & Gibbs consolidated quickly, the Kiwi bowlers, especially Styris and Vettori, stuck to their line and length and restricted the scoring in the middle overs. A patient 51 from Kallis and a quick 40 from Boucher helped the home team cross the 200-run mark and end up with 201/9 in the alloted 50 overs.

    With a low total to defend, Ntini started brilliantly and accounted for Astle and Fleming cheaply. All the bowlers then kept it very tight for the Kiwis to score easy runs. Vincent held one end up with a good 90, but he was running out of partners as no one gave him the support needed once Styris departed for a run-a-ball 27. In the end, the visitors were dismissed for 182 with more than two overs to spare.
