Proteas have scripted a famous victory here at Centurion. Ntini came up with an amazing performance scalping 10 batsmen conceding 145 runs off 33 overs. Steyn gave admirable support to Ntini in the 2nd innings picking up the other 5 wickets and this is his first 5-wicket haul. Only 3 batsmen got into double figures for Kiwis and this is a very poor batting performance especially form the top order. Oram played a great innings to bring them back into the match in the 1st innings after a top order collapse.

For Proteas, de Villiers played an excellent knock of 97 runs to set a target of 249 runs which made the bowlers to fight and they did it in style. Please join us for the next Test match starting on 27th April at Cape Town. Cheers and Bye!
