Cricket-Morkel mauls Kiwis to lift South Africa to 170

BRIDGETOWN, May 6 (Reuters) - South Africa smashed 62 off

the last five overs against New Zealand to pile up an impressive

total of 170 for four in their Twenty20 World Cup Super Eight

match on Thursday.

A partnership of 72 between Albie Morkel, who hit 40 from 18

balls including five sixes, and AB de Villiers (47 not out) was

crucial in taking the South Africans to a big score with Morkel

smashing three sixes off one over from Tim Southee.

Openers Jacques Kallis and skipper Graeme Smith got the

Springboks off to a rapid start, rattling up 40 inside five

overs before Smith was caught by Martin Guptill off Southee for

14.

Herschelle Gibbs made 30 but it was Morkel's magnificent

hitting that made the difference between an average total and

the daunting target they have set Daniel Vettori's side.
