NZ vs SA, 2nd Test, Day 5 Highlights: Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen were the standout performers with the ball in the final innings as South Africa defeated New Zealand by 198 runs in the second Test at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch to level the two-match series at 1-1. Resuming Day 5 at 94/4, Devon Conway and Tom Blundell kept New Zealand in the game and the duo mixed caution with aggression to help the hosts. In the first session, South Africa was able to take just one wicket as Lutho Sipamla got the better of Conway (92). However, in the second session, the complexion of the entire game changed as South Africa took wickets in a hurry and once Blundell (44) lost his wicket, New Zealand's innings went completely downhill. Earlier, South Africa eventually declared their innings at 354/9 after Kyle Verreynne 136-run knock. Earlier, Sarel Erwee scored a fine 108 as South Africa went on to post a total of 364. In reply, New Zealand were bowled out of a total of 293, as the visitors took a 71-run lead in the first innings. (FULL SCORECARD)
