Here are the LIVE Updates of the 1st New Zealand vs South Africa Test from the Hagley Oval in Christchurch

  1. All in readiness now. Tom Latham and Will Young are the Kiwi openers. Kagiso Rabada to steam in…
  2. !… DAY 1, SESSION 3 …
  3. !The South African players are back on the field. They are going through their warm-up drills at the moment. We\’re hearing that TEA has been taken on Day 1. Do join us in a short while then for the final session.
  4. !… SECOND INNINGS …
  5. !Right then, the batting has let South Africa down and it\’s over to their bowlers to help them get back in this Test match. They have plenty of quality in their bowling ranks and let\’s see how they utilize the conditions. Stay tuned to find out…
  6. !The destroyer-in-chief, Matt Henry comes up for a quick chat. Says that it\’s a great start to the Test match and he is feeling great in front of his friends and family. Tells that it\’s nice to get an opportunity to play Test cricket. Mentions that after watching the overhead conditions, he was hoping to get a chance to bowl first.
  7. !South Africa were put to bat under testing conditions but by no means it\’s a 95 all out surface. There was a lack of application on their part and the technique was also questionable. They ended up playing many deliveries meant to be left and as a result, kept losing wickets. Zubayr Hamza and Kyle Verreynne did put up a little resistance but that was not enough.
  8. !Blown away! No strong wind here in Christchurch but the local boy, Matt Henry, has still blown away the Proteas with his stormy bowling. With an outstanding bowling figure of 7 for 23, the speedster decimated the South African batting line-up. The other bowlers also rallied around him and it was a clinical show from the Kiwis in the park.
