New Zealand vs South Africa: Twitter erupts after Trent Boult's lethal spell

Tahir says the weather is forcing the players to have a bit of a rest: "We want to play, but obviously it's nice to have one or two days off".

None of that can be scoffed at.

AB de Villiers (26) and JP Duminy (29) added 22 runs in just nine balls for the fourth wicket stand before de Grandhomme got rid of unsafe AB in the 16th over.

There can also be little disputing the latest chance to add to that list, somewhere near the top of it in fact, has arrived on the doorstep of the Kiwi side.

A five-match ODI series between the two teams begins in Hamilton on Sunday (03:00 SA time).

Egypt's 'Blind Sheikh' dies in prison in the US
For decades he had been a figurehead for Egypt's Salafi-jihadi movement, including the militant group al-Gamaa al-Islamiya. In August 1993, he was indicted for involvement in a broader terrorist plot that included the World Trade Center bombing.

A couple of hours after completing their victory, at close to midnight, with only the cleaners, security and night owls of the media left at the ground, the full South African squad strode out to the middle of the Eden Park pitch and produced a loud rendition of their team song. The absence of arguably your four best seam bowlers, nothing to see here.

He insisted, though, that there was no extra feeling because of what had happened the last time South Africa played at Eden Park in the World Cup semi-final. "The conditions are pretty similar - the ball moves around a bit when it's new and you have to extend your partnerships when you get in, so it's quite similar to the United Kingdom".

"It's a good wicket, hard to stop batters when they get going, so our bowlers did an outstanding job to pick up wickets", de Villiers said.

"He played really well in the domestic T20 campagn", Williamson said.

The obstacles to hurdle for the hosts don't end there.

Do You 'Netflix Cheat'? You're Not Alone
When did Netflix and Chill become Netflix and Cheat? The world average percentage of Netflix cheaters was 46 percent. You could also just ask them and let them know how you feel about it, like an open couple that communicates.

While Quinton de Kock fell for a duck in the third over, Hashim Amla (62), captain Faf du Plessis (36), AB de Villiers (26) and JP Duminy (29) all scored quickly.

New Zealand and South Africa had played 14 T20 internationals, with the Proteas securing victory in 10 of them.

And after such a convincing T20 defeat, Hesson openly acknowledged the size of the task in front of his side. He also bowled 16 dot balls during the innings.

"We know, coming up against South Africa, it's going to be a very tough challenge", he said.

"From a batting point of view, from one to seven they have some real match winners and real high quality".

Sargento, Meijer recall cheese due to possible Listeria contamination
Meijer is also recalling its Meijer brand colby and colby jack cheeses that are sold exclusively through its deli counters. The products were packaged at the Sargento plant in Plymouth, Wisconsin, and were distributed nationwide.

Tahir, who took two wickets in two balls in his second over, had his figures marginally sullied by successive sixes from Colin de Grandhomme, but still finished with a career-best 5-24 in 3.5 overs, with the home batsmen unable to pick his googly.
