A rain-curtailed first ODI between South Africa and New Zealand in Hamilton witnessed a penultimate ball finish when AB de Villiers smashed a boundary off Tim Southee. The match was reduced to 34 overs aside and New Zealand after being put into bat scored 207/7 in the allotted overs.
in reply, riding on Quinton de Kock’s half century and finishing touches given by De Villiers were enough to set a winning tone for the visitors by 4 wickets. The right-hand batsman de Villiers grabbed a scintillating win for his team and here’s how Twitter reacted on this win.

South Africa win with a ball to spare! ?? They lead the 5-match series by 1. Plenty more heart attacks to come in this series. #NZvSA
