Bloody Black Cap cops a sore one

January 23, 2013, 2:44 pm

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.

    Where's Mr Patel? I heard only 2 other teams apart from us have beaten SA at home in a series and neither one of them were India! :)

    If ODI's didn't count they wouldn't be played nor would there be a world cup for them. Additionally, if ODI's didn't count then neither do ODI losses; though I'm sure the plonkers would be out in force if they lost (and certainly will be back to their childish ways should we lose the third ODI).

    winston,what do you mean "ODI's dont count"This is the first time a kiwi team has beaten Sth Africa in a series.Prior to this series NZ has only ever won 2 ODI's in Sth Africa.I think we need to celebrate this historic win.Sure its well overdue but they're effort in the field was sublime,the bowling was very tight,they gave away few scoring opportunities and 5 run outs speak for themselves,fantastic.Im far from a fan Of Guptils batting and he failed yet again but his fielding was world class today.Enjoy your beers boys,you deserve them
