Watch NZ v SA highlights today – first test day four from University Oval, Dunedin (New Zealand) Saturday 11th March 2017. Home side New Zealand batted so well in their first innings because they scored 341 runs in 114.3 overs all out. Captain of the NZ team KS Williamson* showed his class of batting by scoring 130 runs off 241 balls. He smashed eighteen 4s in his brilliant innings when his wicket dismissed then it was 92.1 extra pace and bounce with the new ball has worked. Super delivery to end an innings of great concentration and character. This length ball leaves him late, there’s zip off the pitch too. Williamson pokes at that and gets a healthy edge through to de Kock. South Africans have pumped. 277/6.
LRPL Taylor faced 27 balls and scored 15 runs not out, BJ Watling† 50 runs gave hope to New Zealand because he batted well when his team’s wickets were downing so quickly. KA Maharaj took five wickets in 28.3 overs with 94 runs, M Morkel and VD Philander dismissed four NZ batsmen, K Rabada took one wicket. Till the end of the day 3, South Africa lead by 5 runs with 9 wickets remaining.
