Earlier, JP Duminy (86* off 43 balls) set things up nicely for South Africa getting them to 170/6. New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum said that his team lost a match they should have won but nothing could be done when someone like Dale Steyn bowled an over of that quality as he did during the end. South African captain Faf du Plessis said Steyn has always been his go-to man and JP Duminy had played a great innings. JP Duminy deservedly won the Man of the Match award.
