Martin Guptill hit a brilliant century to clinch a last-ball, 8 wicket victory for New Zealand in the second Twenty20 international against South Africa at Buffalo Park.

Guptill finished with 101 not out off 69 balls, hitting the last ball of the match from Rory Kleinveldt over cover for four to enable New Zealand to reach a target of 169 in a match reduced to 19 overs a side because of a floodlight failure.

New Zealand 169 for 2 (Guptill 101*) beat South Africa 165 for 5 (Du Plessis 63, Davids 55) by eight wickets (D/L method)
