Stats - South Africa's worst since 1932, Matt Henry equals Richard Hadlee

All the stats and highlights from a remarkable day's play in Christchurch

1932 It's been 90 years since South Africa were last bowled out for less than 100 in the first innings of a Test match. This 95 all out against New Zealand followed on from their 36 all out against Australia in Melbourne.
3 Previous instances where New Zealand had bowled their opponent out for under 100 in the first innings of a Test match. The lowest is 58 by England in a pink-ball Test in 2018.
3 Matt Henry recorded the third-best bowling figures for New Zealand in Test cricket (7 for 23). The only people to ever do better are Ajaz Patel (10 for 119 vs India in 2021) and Richard Hadlee (9 for 51 vs Australia in 1985)
1 Henry's bowling figures are the joint-best for New Zealand in Tests at home. Hadlee also had figures of 7 for 23 against India in 1976 in Wellington. Those are also the second-best figures in Tests in New Zealand, behind Erapalli Prasanna's 8 for 76 in Auckland in 1976.
7 for 23 Henry's bowling figures are the best for New Zealand in Tests against South Africa. The previous best was 6 for 60 by John Reid in 1964. Henry also recorded the third-best bowling figures against South Africa in all Test cricket for 100 years.
95 South Africa's total, their lowest against New Zealand, eclipsing the 148 they made in Johannesburg in 1953. Also, by being bowled out in 49.2 overs, South Africa recorded their second-shortest all-out innings against the Black Caps.
10 Number of seven-plus wicket hauls in Test cricket at a better bowling average than Henry's (3.28). He also has the cheapest seven-for for New Zealand, alongside Hadlee's 7 for 23.
