New Zealand v South Africa, 4th one day international, Kimberly, SA
Sunday, 29 October, 2000
Article: Mathew Loh

South Africa have won the one day series after securing an unbeatable 3-0 lead with their five wicket victory over New Zealand this morning.

Needing 288 for victory the Boks secured victory via a 172 run second wicket partnership by opener Gary Kirsten, 101, and first-drop Jacques Kallis, 93.

New Zealand remained positive after knocking off Kallis and then Kirsten in quick succession but any dreams of an upset were shortlived as the cool heads and cricket skills of Mark Boucher, 18, and the in-form Nicky Boje, 21 saw the Boks through to a deserved series victory.
