The Black Caps won their first ever ODI series in South Africa after a spirited victory against the Proteas this morning.
But one of the players may have some different memories after a howler in the field.
Step forward substitute fielder Ronnie Hira:
The Black Caps star was lobbed a ball from keeper Brendon McCullum and let it straight through his hands and on to his nose, causing the claret to flow.
Despite suggestions the low sun may have been to blame it was clear on the replay that Hira just failed to get his hands behind the ball.
Hira was helped off the field, meaning the dropped Rob Nicol had to replace the substitute.Hopefully the pain is forgotten about as the celebrations continue in the republic.
6-4 0-6 5-7
