Gillespie celebrates best test bowling figures

7:24 am on 26 March 2012

The New Zealand fast bowler Mark Gillespie says achieving his career best test cricket figures on his home pitch in front of his family makes the feat all the more special.

Gillespie took six for 113 at the Basin Reserve as South Africa made 474 for nine declared in their first innings of the third and final test against the Black Caps.

The Black Caps will start day four on 65 without loss.
