Earlier, South Africa skipper Smith won the toss and elected to bat first against the Kiwis. The Proteas come into the match at the back of the comprehensive victory by an innings and 45 runs against the Kiwis in the first Test.
The hosts have come into the match with just one change. Rory Kliedveldt has replaced the injured Vernon Philander.
Brief Scores: South Africa 99 for 1 (Graeme Smith 40*, Hashim Amla 31*; Doug Bracewell 1 for 18) vs New Zealand
