  1. Farewell

    A superb match then, the best of the tournament to date I think you'll agree. Congratulations to New Zealand and what a superb unbeaten century from their captain.

    Many thanks for being with us, I hope you can join us again from 09:45 BST on Thursday when Australia will have a chance to go top of the table as they take on Bangladesh, fresh from that superb run chase against West Indies. Enjoy yourselves, cheerio for now.

    It was a much better performance from South Africa, but their performances in previous matches has cost them overall in this tournament.

    I think one more win will do it for New Zealand to reach the semi-finals.

    With eight needed from the final over, Williamson lifted any pressure by dispatching the second ball from Phehlukwayo high over mid-wicket for six to reach his hundred and then cut the next ball to the boundary to finish the match in style as New Zealand won by four wickets with three balls remaining.

    The 38th over, bowled by veteran spinner Imran Tahir, was highly eventful. De Grandhomme was dropped by David Miller and replays showed that Williamson, on 76, got a bottom edge through to the keeper. But there was no appeal and no review. In all the excitement we did not see a review all day.

    New Zealand will be pleased they've responded so well to being under so much pressure.

    The skipper calmly went about his work after his team lost 3-8.

    It was mental quality from Kane Williamson today. He didn't look comfortable, couldn't play the shots he likes to play and he was frustrated. He had to battle the demons in himself. He trusted his instinct that he could do it and the four down to third man in the penultimate over was crucial. He taught his team a lot today.

    We saw a very special performance from Eoin Morgan yesterday but what a majestic innings that was from Williamson, let's take a look at some of the unflappable skipper's strokeplay.

    More from Kane Williamson: "You have a fairly quiet chat and then Colin plays his natural game. He's done it a number of times. He's that X-factor player, and what an occasion to do it. He came in in a pressure situation and hit the ball beautifully.

    "It's just trying to get across the line. We've played on a variety of surfaces and then you look on the other side of the country and there's 350 - that hasn't been the case for us!

    "For us, it's about not looking ahead. It's trying to do the job at hand and that's what we've been able to do so far. We've got a number of tough games coming up that will require something different."

    South Africa had their chances to dismiss Kane Williamson - that catch behind off Imran Tahir is the biggest one. It might have been worth it, at that stage, just to try even a speculative review. If they happened to lose the review, I don't think you would have blamed them for going upstairs. It might have been worth it.

    More from Faf du Plessis: "We threw ourselves around, we challenged, we fought, we tried. Great work from our bowlers. The fielding energy was unbelievable."

    On the Williamson edge behind: "I didn't know. There was no real appeal and I'm standing at long-on. So ask him (points to Kane)!"

  14. 'Kane showed exactly what to do'

    South Africa captain Faf du Plessis: "I thought 260 was par on this wicket. The chat in the team the whole time was try and aim at 260, 270. I felt we were 20-short. Good bowling and we were unable to get a few boundaries away.

    "I think individual batters will look at having an opportunity to face a bowler they feel they could fancy on the day. I think Kane showed exactly what to do - he found it tricky to score but he waited for one guy, or a period, where he attacked. We had a lot of stop start and that takes the extra 20 runs off the score."

    Here's how the table looks, New Zealand one point ahead at the top, but India in fourth two points behind are also unbeaten and have played a game less.

    New Zealand were tested today and they will be better for it. It was a full work-out. They trusted their bowlers early on to be more consistent than their batsmen have been.

    Unfortunately for South Africa, this is probably it. I wonder if they would have played with a little more freedom had this World Cup gone differently for them so far.

  18. Post update

    Next up for New Zealand is a match against West Indies at Old Trafford on 22 June, big matches ahead against Australia at Lord's on 29 June and England at Durham on 3 July. Those top four places are going to be very interesting.

    More from Kane Williamson: "It''s just trying to do the job as well as you can. I was fortunate I was able to do it today. There were a number of contributions that were so vital. It was one of those surfaces that provides a great spectacle. It could have gone either way but it was great to get the win at the end of the day."
