Grant Elliott produced a Man-of-the-Match performance with an unbeaten 84 off 73. Brendon McCullum and Corey Anderson scored half-centuries too.Earlier in the day, Trent Boult picked up 2 early wickets to jolt the Proteas top order, but Faf du Plessis and Rilee Rossouw got their team through the difficult passage – setting it up for AB de Villiers and David Miller to provide the finishing touch.Β Here are the numbers that matter from the game:Β 

#1 Most runs ever off a Dale Steyn over

Dale Steyn conceded 25 runs in his thirdover, 24 of which came off Brendon McCullums bat. This is the highest number of runs conceded by Steyn in a single over in an ODI, beating the 24 runs he gave away in an over against Australia at Melbourne in 2006.
