Brendon McCullum Cheating - New Zealand's Wicket Keeper - 2010

1st Day of first Test Between New Zealand and South Africa:

Today New Zealand made a history.A spell of 20 balls by South Africa.Where score was stuck at 133/3 to 133/7.The hosts lost five wickets with the same scoreline for just the third time in the history of Test cricket.

It was only the third time in test cricket five wickets had fallen without a run being scored and New Zealand have the dubious distinction of achieving the feat all three times.

New Zealand have featured in all three, losing five wickets for no score against Australia (in Wellington, 1945-46) and Pakistan (in Rawalpindi, 1964-65).

The slide started with the loss of McCullum for 61 when he was caught in the deep when pulling Morne Morkel and he was quickly followed by Taylor (44), Kane Williamson (0), Daniel Vettori (0) and Doug Bracewell (0).

New Zealand lost eight wickets for 52 runs to finish their innings at 185 all out.

In response, South Africa are 27-2 at stumps.
