Otago Volts vs Highveld Lions Highlights – 29 September 2013 – Super Over
De Kock could easily have ended on the winning side. He turned a scratchy innings into a superlative hundred to take the stumbling Lions to 167, and then kept decently for the majority of the chase as Otago struggled. Neesham kept Otago in with big hitting towards the end, even against Sohail Tanvir's wily bowling. After Neesham's 25-ball 52, it came down to two required off the last ball. Tanvir beat the bat, but a fumble from de Kock allowed Otago the bye to push the game into the Super Over.
Tanvir responded superbly to the call of the hour, bowling accurate yorkers, but Brendon McCullum charged him to take a yorker on the full and send it over long-off for six to take Otago to a fighting 13. Neesham's response with the ball wasn't as good: he kept bowling wide-length balls, and conceded 10 to de Kock off the first two balls. Jean Symes, though, slogged with just three required off three, and holed out.
