Port Elizabeth: Jan 13, 2013

Opener Martin Guptill lead New Zealand‘s cautious start after being enforced follow-on by home side, South Africa on Day Three of the second Test at Port Elizabeth.

Openers Martin Guptill (40 not out) and Brendon McCullum (11) put on 40 runs for the first wicket and took 20 overs to do so. Off-spinner Robin Peterson got the first breakthrough as he trapped McCullum leg before to dismiss him for 11.

Guptill was joined by Kane Williamson (11) but was soon on his way back as Peterson castled his stumps to leave New Zealand at 64 for two.

Guptill, who opened the innings, kept the New Zealand batting from a first-innings-like collapse as he scored 40 runs to take his side to 64 for three at Tea.

Earlier, Dale Steyn picked up five wickets as New Zealand failed to avoid follow-on after being bowled out for 121 in the first session on sunday.

Continuing from an overnight score of 47 for six, Steyn’s first victim of the day was Doug Bracewell who edged a delivery that had a hint of away swing as wicketkeeper Ab de Villiers completed a simple catch.

Two overs later, Steyn trapped Neil Wagner leg before to reduce the visitors to 62 for eight.

Next to fall was Jeetan Patel, as Steyn sent his off-stump for a cartwheel to leave New Zealand at 62 for nine.

BJ Watling, who was at the crease since Day Two, and the last batsman Trent Boult put on a record partnership for the final wicket for New Zealand against South Africa. The duo put on 59 runs before Watling was dismissed by Morne Morkel to bring an end to the New Zealand innings at 121.

South Africa enforced follow on and the Kiwis were at three for no loss when the teams went in for Lunch.

Brief Scores: South Africa 525 for 8 dec. (Faf du Plessis 137, Hashim Amla 110, Dean Elgar 103*; Doug Bracewell 2 for 85) lead New Zealand 121 & 64 for 2 (Martin Guptil 40*, Robin Peterson 2 for by 340 runs
