Kane Williamson is very well-known for how acrobatic he is on the field. He is also known for his super catches that he has taken specially in Gully. He added another one to his list when he did a ‘goalkeeper style’ to dismiss Faf du Plessis of Neil Wagner’s bowling. du Plessis was looking to build a strong partnership during which he played a classy off-drive for a full and wide one from Wagner. Faf leaped forward and sliced the drive to which he got a bit it of outside edge which went towards gully and Kane Williamson caught onto an absolute screamer at gully. He dived full length to his right and grabbed it air-borne.   FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: South Africa vs New Zealand, 1st Test at Durban

Just when it looked like Faf could show misguided South Africa the some way, he was dismissed. It did not take much time for New Zealand bowlers to dominate the game as they got 8 South African wickets for 236. Trent Boult led an impressive New Zealand bowling effort as South Africa struggled on the first day of the first Test against South Africa at Kingsmead on Friday. South Africa made 236 for eight before bad light brought an end to an overcast day played under floodlights almost from the start. South Africa vs New Zealand 1st Test Day 2 Live Updates

“We’re happy with where we are,” said left-arm pace bowler Neil Wagner, who finished with three for 47. He was also happy that stand-in South African captain Faf du Plessis decided to bat in what were always likely to be challenging conditions. “We didn’t really know what to expect but we were happy to bowl first with a bit of humidity and overcast conditions,” he added.

Boult was superb in an opening spell of one for eight in eight overs.”He was outstanding,” said Wagner. “He set the day up for us. With the ball you always have to start well and it looked like he had great rhythm. He’s a world-class swing bowler.” Just when it seemed South African openers Stephen Cook and Dean Elgar had weathered the early storm from Boult and Tim Southee, Boult struck with the last ball of his seventh over when he had Cook caught behind for 20 after an opening stand of 33.

Doug Bracewell had Elgar caught at second slip and JP Duminy fell into a trap when he top-edged a short ball from Wagner to fine leg. Boult came back after lunch and made another crucial breakthrough when he had top-scorer Hashim Amla caught behind for 53.
