    Agree, even if NZ do get a 260+ score, SA should easily get their noses in front considering NZ only scored 19 in the first 10.

    54/2? Not a bad start.

    wtf is with the half volleys? easily been about 10 since Watling got out. gifting away runs to Williamson who's timing them superbly.

    You'd think McCullum's decision to promote Elliott was one based purely on emotion given it's Elliott's old home track. If so, good captaincy imo.

    Yup, Elliott looks suspect against spin.

    Nice footwork Williamson.

    You have to think no matter what score NZ gets they will be 30 short, because of their slow start.

    Yep, pitch looks like a road built on a road.

    Indeed, these two have done well so far, but it looks like a roady mcroad. Will need 300+ imo.

    As good a pitch as it looks, I think the NZ bowlers will vary their pace better than SA have & I'm hoping it just slows a touch this evening.

    Unfortunately the only people who are capable of this are on SA's side.
    I know nothing about cricket.
