162&247 (80.0)
New Zealand beat South Africa by 281 runs
Right then, that is it from this first Test where the Kiwis take the lead with a massive win while the young Proteas side takes a lot of learnings and will look to use them and compete better in the next one. The 2nd and final Test will be played at Seddon Park, Hamilton. It will start on 13th February, Tuesday at 3.30 am GMT (10 pm, Previous Day), but as you know, you can always join us early for all the build-up to the game. Until then, cheers and goodbye!
Tim Southee, the victorious skipper of New Zealand says it was a pretty good surface overall and to pick 20 wickets of the opposition was really special. He adds that it is pleasing to see everyone stepping up with crucial contributions when required. Says that they had a great preparation and appreciates the Proteas by saying they are really talented and they know how to compete. Says that it offers a little bit more to the bowlers later in the Test. Lauds Santner that he bowled really well and that they got better as the Test went on. Says that they are a bit better in the second innings. Concludes by saying that they are eagerly waiting to play at Hamilton next.
Neil Brand, the captain of South Africa says that it is very deflating. Adds that on Day 1, they were in the game but did not take their chances and credits New Zealand for a strong performance. Tells that this tested their patience, but the disappointing thing was batters not converting their starts. Mentions that they lost quite a few wickets right after a break and will need to discuss it and challenge strongly in the next Test. Ends by saying that he is very happy with his eight wickets in the match, including the six-wicket haul in the second innings, but ultimately he is there to score runs and is disappointed not being able to do so in this game.
Rachin Ravindra is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his scintillating double-hundred. He says that he is really delighted to contribute to the team's win. Adds that they managed to build crucial partnerships which helped to post a huge total on the board. Tells that he rates his innings very high and appreciates Kane Williamson saying that he has 31 centuries and is the great of this format. Mentions that contributing to the team is essential and that they are working hard for it. Says that he feels that he belongs here and the team management ensures that. He concludes that he is happy with the win and Kane and he enjoyed out there batting together.
Presentation Time...
While chasing, the Proteas openers failed to give them a good start and were sent back by Tim Southee and Matt Henry pretty quickly. However, Raynard van Tonder and Zubayr Hamza steadied the ship after that till Lunch, but couldn't make much of their starts as they fell victim to Kyle Jamieson early in the second session. After that, the pair of Keegan Petersen and David Bedingham stepped up and showed some good batting skills along with a solid defence adding 105 runs together. Bedingham was bombarded with short balls by the Kiwis, but he counter-attacked and smacked them away registering a fine half-century. He was able to handle that game plan effectively before Tea, but in the third session, he holed out, trying to take on Kyle Jamieson again. He smashed 87 off just 96 balls and just missed out on a maiden Test hundred, but unfortunately for the Proteas, his partner followed suit and became the fourth victim for Jamieson. Mitchell Santner got into the act and removed two batters to take his side close to the win. Dane Paterson and Ruan de Swardt wagged around for a bit, scoring a few runs that will give them a bit of confidence for the next game. Jamieson created a big chance for his fifer, but Matt Henry spilled out, and it was Santner who wrapped things up to seal a big win for the Kiwis.
As there is not much break between the two Tests, the Kiwis decided not to enforce the follow-on and bat again even with a massive lead due to workload management. Tom Latham failed to take this opportunity and went back for another low score while Devon Conway struggled a bit but managed to stick around for a long time. However, the highlight was the terrific hundred from Kane Williamson who joined an elite list to score back-to-back centuries in a single Test. For South Africa, Neil Brand added a couple to extend his tally to eight wickets in the match while Dane Paterson and Ruan de Swardt chipped in with one each. The Kiwis batted till the end of Day 3, and as expected, they declared right before the start of Day 4 setting up a daunting target of 529 runs for South Africa.
New Zealand dominated the first innings, amassing 511 runs over 144 overs and 5 sessions. Kane Williamson's solid 118 and Rachin Ravindra's exceptional 240 laid the foundation for the Kiwis' substantial lead against South Africa. Despite Neil Brand's remarkable 6-wicket haul as the Proteas' debut skipper, quickfire contributions from Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, and Matt Henry helped New Zealand breach the 500-run mark.  In response, South Africa struggled against the strong Kiwi bowling attack, failing to build significant partnerships despite starts from Edward Moore, Zubayr Hamza, and David Bedingham. Keegan Petersen top-scored with 45 runs, but South Africa collapsed for 162, trailing by 349 runs. The sorry-looking batting scorecard reflected their inability to counter New Zealand's bowling onslaught, leaving them facing an uphill battle.
KIWIS - 1 PROTEAS - 0! The first round of this series goes to the hosts and that was pretty much expected. New Zealand dominated this Test right from the start and never lost control of it winning it by a massive margin of 281 runs in the end. It was always going to be difficult for South Africa with six debutants, but there were some glimpses of potential and they can take a few positives from this game.

Mitchell Santner To Dane Paterson OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! New Zealand WIN convincingly by 281 runs. Mitchell Santner does the job for the Kiwis and Kane Williamson makes no mistake in the deep with the catch. Provides a lot of air to the ball and drops it from around the wicket on a fuller length in front of the stumps, Dane Paterson goes for another biggie in an attempt to clear the deep mid-wicket with a heave but does not get enough wood on it as he loses his shape a bit in an attempt to hit it hard. The ball carries straight towards Kane Williamson at long on who settles his eyes underneath it and reverse cups it to wrap this first Test. New Zealand are surely the deserved victors of this Test and it was just a matter of time to finish things in style. New Zealand take the lead by 1-0 in the series.

Mitchell Santner To Tshepo Moreki OUT!
OUT! APPEAL for LBW and up goes the finger. Tshepo Moreki straight away opts for a review. Mitchell Santner drops a flighted ball on the middle stump line, it keeps straight after pitching, and Tshepo Moreki rocks back and looks to tuck it away to the leg side but the ball thuds his pads as he is too late to bring the bat in time getting trapped in front. The UltraEdge confirms that no bat is involved and three reds on the Ball Tracker prove that he is Out. New Zealand are just one wicket away from the victory.

It's time for Drinks. Well, it's the same story for South Africa throughout this first Test, and across both innings. The batters have got the starts but then, suddenly they have thrown their wickets away playing lose shots. David Bedingham departed on 87 right after the Tea Break against Kyle Jamieson, who further went to dismantle the South African middle order. New Zealand are just 2 wickets away from a convincing win.

OUT! TAKEN! A very unfortunate dismissal for Clyde Fortuin, and this perfectly sums up this Test for South Africa. Glenn Phillips drags his length back again, on middle, Clyde Fortuin rocks back and pulls it, Tom Latham at short leg gets his head down, but the ball goes off his right pad and lobs up in the air, Tom Blundell spots it, moves across and takes an easy catch. Fortuin stands there in disbelief but has to walk back now. New Zealand three wickets away from the win now!

OUT! TAKEN! Kyle Jamieson has four now! Keegan Petersen loses his patience and that costs him his wicket here. Kyle Jamieson gets the length right this time, short and just under the armpit, on leg, Keegan Petersen decides to take it on this time and tries to pull it away, but unfortunately hits it in the air and towards fine le where Rachin Ravindra moves to his right and takes a fine diving catch. Once again, South Africa losee both set batters quickly after a break. New Zealand four wickets away from the win now!

Kyle Jamieson To David Bedingham OUT!
OUT! TAKEN IN THE DEEP! Kyle Jamieson gets his man this time! The short-ball plan has finally worked for the Kiwis. This is short again as expected, on the middle, David Bedingham tries to take it on again, but this time fails to get it from the middle of the bat and mistimes it in the air towards deep mid-wicket, Mitchell Santner settles under it and pouches it safely. David Bedingham goes after an entertaining knock but misses out on a Test hundred here.

Kyle Jamieson To David Bedingham
Kyle Jamieson starts with a short delivery around leg, David Bedingham fails to get on top of that and mistimes his pull towards deep square leg for a single. The short-ball ploy continues...
We are back with the third and final session of Day 4. The Umpires are already out in the middle and the Kiwi fielders enter the field from the dressing room before spreading to the field. Keegan Petersen and David Bedingham to resume their innings for South Africa. Kyle Jamieson (8-1-30-2) to lead the proceedings with the ball. Let's play...
...DAY 4, THIRD SESSION...
SESSION SUMMARY - 111 runs and 2 wickets in 28 overs! South Africa will be pretty happy going into Tea! Just like the first session, the Kiwis were able to pick up a couple of early wickets, and this time it was Kyle Jamieson. However, even though they created a few half chances here and there, they couldn't build on that and allowed the batters to settle in and build up another stand. Raynard van Tonder and Zubayr Hamza would have been disappointed as they couldn't convert their starts into something significant. After that, Keegan Petersen and David Bedingham looked strong out there with the former holding one end solidly and the latter taking on an ultra-aggressive approach. The Kiwis went with the short-ball plan to Bedingham who initially ducked a few but then decided to take on every ball. Till now, he has shown great control over his pull shot and has smashed it on will. He took this opportunity to register a brilliant fifty quickly and is unbeaten on 84 going into the break. This pair has added exactly 100 runs and will look to continue like this and hope to stay there till Stumps to give the Proteas a chance to save this Test. Will the short-ball plan work for the Kiwis? Or will David Bedingham get to his maiden Test hundred? Join us at 8.30 am (3 am GMT) to find out in the last session.

We are all set for the post-Lunch session to begin. The Umpires make their way out to the middle. New Zealand fielders too take their respective field positions. Raynard van Tonder and Zubayr Hamza to resume their innings for the Proteas. It will be Kyle Jamieson (3-0-8-0) to start the proceedings with the ball. Let's play...
...DAY 4, SECOND SESSION...
New Zealand's opening bowlers, Matt Henry and Tim Southee, began the session with some outstanding deliveries, making life difficult for the South African batsmen. It didn't take long for Southee to send the South African skipper back to the pavilion. Working in tandem, Matt Henry also quickly removed Edward Moore from the crease. Throughout the session, they maintained tight lines and lengths, exploiting the movement available for the seamers due to breezy overcast conditions, and benefiting from the good amount of turn that Santner extracted from the pitch, along with Glenn Phillips. Coming into Session Two of Day 4, they would aim to pick quick wickets and exert more pressure on the opposition. Stay tuned as the post-Lunch session will begin at 6:10 am (12:40 am GMT).
LUNCH, DAY 4 - SESSION SUMMARY - 28 Overs, 62 Runs, and 2 Wickets. Another session that swung towards the Kiwis, but South Africa would not be too disappointed as they lost only two. The Proteas were tasked with chasing a daunting target of 528 runs after an overnight declaration. South Africa's innings got off to a rocky start once again as their captain Neil Brand fell early, followed by Edward Moore. Zubayr Hamza and Raynard van Tonder also had their fair share of shaky moments at the crease, but they managed to hold on until lunch without losing any more wickets. While they played cautiously, they didn't let their guard down fighting back, and stitched up the highest partnership for their team in this match.

Drinks! New Zealand will be pretty happy with their effort in the first hour here. A couple of early wickets and Mitchell Santner also looked threatening in his first over, and they will want to pick up at least two if not more before Lunch. South Africa needs to give themselves small targets to survive here, and Zubayr Hamza and Raynard van Tonder have looked good, but they need to continue like this for much longer. Also, Tim Southee to bowl after the break.

The ball sneaks through his defence and to the keeper from top of off. There's a sharp appeal for caught behind but they refuse to go upstairs as it brushes off his pad of the back leg.

Both the Proteas openers are back to the hut inside the first five overs.

Matt Henry To Neil Brand
An appeal for caught behind and up goes the finger. But wait, this has been reviewed by Neil Brand. Around the wicket which keeps straighter and angles into the batter around off, Neil Brand presents the full face of the bat but plays inside the line of the ball and carries to the keeper who dives to his left to take a one-handed grab. The UltraEdge comes up and confirms that the ball has deflected off the pads and then to the keeper. Also, the wickets are hitting on the Umpire's call. As the review was for caught behind, it is overturned. An excellent review by Brand. He survives.
Is that out? Tom Blundell has taken a blinder behind the stumps, but Neil Brand thinks he has not hit that and takes the review. UltraEdge shows he right and Ball Tracking goes in his way as well.
