NZ vs RSA 1st Test, Day 4 Preview
The Bay Oval is set for another fascinating day as the first Test between New Zealand and South Africa enters its fourth day on February 7th, 2024. The Black Caps hold all the aces after a dominant display on Day 3, and the Proteas face a monumental challenge to stay alive in the contest.
Day 3 Recap:
- New Zealand Batting: After declaring their first innings at 511/10, the Black Caps opted to bat again and continued their dominance. Kane Williamson, in imperious form, notched up his 31st Test century, his second of the match, to take New Zealand to a commanding 179/4 at stumps.
- South African Bowling: The Proteas attack lacked penetration, with only Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen managing wickets. They need to find inspiration and exploit any remaining weaknesses in the New Zealand batting line-up.
- South African Batting: The visitors’ first innings was a nightmare. They were bundled out for a paltry 162, with only Sarel Erwee and Temba Bavuma offering some resistance. Kyle Jamieson and Tim Southee were the pick of the New Zealand bowlers, sharing eight wickets between them.
Day 4 Preview:
- New Zealand: With a lead exceeding 650 runs, the Black Caps are in a comfortable position. They are likely to declare early and set South Africa a mammoth chase, aiming to exploit the deteriorating pitch.
- South Africa: The Proteas face an uphill battle. They need a near-miraculous batting performance to avoid a heavy defeat. The top order must click, and the middle order needs to show resilience against a disciplined New Zealand attack.
- Key Players: Kane Williamson’s form is a concern for South Africa. They need to find ways to dismiss him cheaply. On the other hand, Temba Bavuma and Sarel Erwee hold the key for the Proteas’ batting revival.
