After the Proteas’ defeat in New Zealand, we take a look at what the South African Test team could look like going forward. The Proteas were convincingly beaten in New Zealand.

Following three days of seesawing Test cricket, it was a steadfast 32nd century from Kane Williamson that steered NZ to a series sweep. The fourth day began with NZ needing 227 more runs to win. Tom Latham batted for 6 more overs today, until he chipped a catch to short cover, giving Dane Piedt his second wicket. South Africa were believing, as the pitch had consistent turn and bounce throughout, but the balance soon began to shift slowly towards the Blackcaps. Williamson made sure no poor delivery went unpunished, while Rachin Ravindra remained careful. They made it through to lunch with mini ..read more

The 2nd Test between New Zealand and South Africa continues to entertain, as yet another eventful day of cricket has gone by. After securing a 31-run lead, the Proteas had to set a stiff target for the hosts. The 2nd innings got off to a horror start despite a decent first 10 overs. Clyde Fortuin fell LBW to Rachin Ravindra, and a short ball from Will O’Rourke dismissed Raynard van Tonder cheaply, too. Captain Neil Brand stuck around and scored boundaries at regular intervals, but O’Rourke had the last laugh yet again. At 39/3, SA were back to familiar territory. However, momentum swung back t ..read more

Led by Dane Piedt, the South African bowlers came to the party and skittled out New Zealand during what was a largely successful day 2 for the Proteas in the second Test.

Rookie seamer Will O’Rourke starred for NZ with a brilliant 4-wicket haul, with three of those wickets coming today. The youngster impressed with his pace and variations throughout. However, Dane Paterson struck early to remove the out-of-form Devon Conway for no s ..read more
