Not exclusively did nobody score more than Zubayr Hamza's 25 yet they additionally dropped four possibilities in the field in a disappointing appearance, particularly falling off their series win against India. South Africa are infamous sluggish starters and were made to look significantly more slow by a clinical and fiery New Zealand side.

Rassie van der Dussen was excused in something very similar over, settled by a decent length conveyance that fixed on him and edged to third slip where Southee took another great catch. At 37 for 4, South Africa would have been satisfied that they incorporated an additional an expert hitter in their XI.

Hamza made a rebound after last playing Test cricket two years prior and, surprisingly, looked persuading for some time, pulling and driving Southee, however at that point Henry made them push at a back of a length ball without moving his feet and was gotten behind. That was Henry's subsequent meeting warm-up wicket. His principle act came two overs some other time when he struck Kyle Verreynne on the knee roll with a full ball and New Zealand looked into. Hawkeye showed the ball would proceed to hit leg stump and Henry had his first Test five-for.
