Gritty NZ seal series

A sublime unbeaten 145 by Kane Williamson led New Zealand to a 27-run victory over the Proteas in the second one-day international on Tuesday to seal their first series win on South African soil.

New Zealand, asked to bat first, made 279 for eight.  South Africa looked on course for victory as they reached 165 for one after 30 overs but a spectacular collapse fuelled by five run-outs caused them to be dismissed for 252.
