Cape Town: Jan 2, 2012

South Africa managed to reach 252 for three at the end of an eventful Day One of the first Test against New Zealand at Cape Town on Wednesday.

Alviro Peterson scored an unbeaten 103, adding 107 for the second wicket with Hashim Amla and 104 with Jacques Kallis for the third wicket. Amla and Kallis also struck half-centuries.

During the course of the day Dale Steyn became the third fastest bowler to pick up 300 Test wickets while Kallis became the fourth batsman to surpass 13,000 Test runs.

Earlier, Vernon Philander grabbed his eighth five-wicket haul in Test cricket as New Zealand were bowled out for 45 against South Africa. In doing so, Philander became the 11th bowler in Test cricket to bag a five-wicket haul in the first session of the match.

Morne Morkel picked up three wickets to add to New Zealand’s woes. Dale Steyn became the third fastest bowler to pick up 300 Test wickets when he dismissed Doug Bracewell for two.

New Zealand reached a new low when they were bowled out for 45, 34 runs less than their previous lowest total in against South Africa in Tests. This was New Zealand third lowest total ever in Test cricket. Their lowest came against England at Auckland in 1955 when they were bundled out for 26. 

They managed to survive for only 19.2 overs which is the least the any team has managed to survive in a completed innings in a Test match.

Kane Williamson was the top-scorer for the Kiwis with a 19-ball 13.

Brief Scores: New Zealand 45 (Kane Williamson 13; Vernon Philander 5 for 7, Morne Morkel 3 for 14, Dale Steyn 2 for 18) trail South Africa 252 for 3 (Alviro Petersen 103, Hashim Amla 66; James Franklin 1 for 23) by 207 runs
