Opting to bat, Faf du Plessis’ side folded for 308. Dean Elgar led from the front with a 299-ball 140. The big guns, Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy, could not muster enough runs off their blade. However, Elgar found support from du Plessis and Temba Bavuma. The duo struck fine fifties and took their side beyond the 300-run mark. Trent Boult and Neil Wagner dominated the proceedings by sharing 7 wickets among them.

Kiwis’ batsmen came out to bat relatively early on Day Two. Tom Latham continued his poor run of form but Jeet Raval and Williamson led their side’s resurgence. Raval departed after his fifty whereas Ross Taylor had to leave the field retired hurt for 8. Williamson will be aware of anchoring the innings and take his side close to the 400-run mark. A big total in the first innings can put Kiwis on top as a collapse can peg them back. BlackCaps have to bat fourth and will be aware of taking a decent lead on Day Three and dictate terms from thereon.
