An innings of wasted starts from New Zealand, Brendon McCullum, Williamson, Nicol, Franklin, all got in, but none made a substantial score. South Africa were brilliant with the new balls, and disciplined throughout. They will think this target is well within their reach. South Africa got some help with the new balls from the pitch. Can New Zealand do the same? It might be their only chance
