And they seized the initiative like a haddock does a wildebeest
South Africa were struggling at 190 for 6 before Quinton de Kock scored 90 to take them to 314. New Zealand ended the day on 67 for 0 | Mar 26, 2017
5.6 M Morkel to TWM Latham, dot ball, back of a length at off stump, he goes back and gets trapped in front off stump. Umpire says not out. That looked close, South Africa reviewed on line but DRS shows it pitched outside leg, and the decision stands | Mar 26, 2017
0.6 VD Philander to TWM Latham, dot ball, full and swinging in viciously towards the pads, he tries to tickle this fine and there's a sound as it goes past him down the leg side through to de Kock. Oxenford has given him out. Latham has reviewed it and hotspot shows it was off the pad Latham was sure he hadn't hit it and replays showed he wasn't close | Mar 26, 2017

86.5 MJ Henry to K Rabada, 6 runs, bouncer at middle stump, a well directed one. But Rabada isn't shy of taking on bouncers. This time he makes a connection and gets it off the top edge over fine leg | Mar 26, 2017

86.3 MJ Henry to Q de Kock, 6 runs, full and swinging in from outside off, short backlift but he's got plenty of power on this slog over deep midwicket | Mar 26, 2017
78.3 N Wagner to KA Maharaj, out, oh good bowling. This is a bouncer in the corridor, Maharaj has to fend at it. It's quick and climbing at him. He jumps to try and negotiate it but that's too good for him and he gets a glove through to Watling | Mar 26, 2017
