Note: In a career context, all numbers are restricted between 0 and 5. However, in a match context, the numbers are not restricted. For simplicity, we are changing the scale here in the report and expressing every Match Impact number as a percentage. The maximum percentage (100) is assigned to the highest impact player of the match. All other players in the match are scaled relative to him. Negative Match Impact indicates that not only did the player not contribute in the match, but he also had an adverse effect on his team’s chances.​​

Scorecard

South Africa beat New Zealand by four wickets in Hamilton on Sunday (19 Feb).

Quinton de Kock was the highest impact player and batsman of the series opener.

The 24-year old struck a 64-ball 69; he was the top scorer and had Partnership-Building Impact and Chasing Impact . He claimed two catches as well.

Chris Morris was the highest impact bowler for his four top/middle-order wickets (4 for 62 off seven overs). His swift dismissals of Dean Brownlie, Ross Taylor and Neil Broom put the home team under pressure (they lost three wickets for 13 runs), but he ended the match with a negative Economy Impact .

Kane Williamson’s all round effort saw him finish as New Zealand’s highest impact player. He scored a 53-ball 59 under pressure, and then returned to claim one top/middle-order wicket (1 for 17 off two overs) and a catch as well.

In all, four South Africans and three New Zealanders failed in the match.
