RSA vs NZ 2nd Test, Day 1 Preview
The second Test between South Africa and New Zealand kicks off on February 13th, 2024, at Seddon Park in Hamilton, with the Proteas desperate to bounce back after a heavy defeat in the first match. Let’s delve into the preview, armed with a recap of the last encounter and a look at the head-to-head history.
Last Match Summary:
New Zealand dominated the first Test at Hagley Oval, Christchurch, cruising to a comprehensive innings and 276-run victory. The hosts batted first, piling on 583 runs thanks to centuries from Kane Williamson and Daryl Mitchell. South Africa’s bowling attack struggled, with only Neil Brand offering any resistance. In reply, the Proteas were bundled out for 209 and 95, with the Kiwi bowlers sharing the spoils.
Head-to-Head in Tests:
The two teams have a long and storied rivalry in Test cricket. In 101 matches played, New Zealand has a slight edge with 43 wins to South Africa’s 38. The remaining 20 matches have been drawn. Notably, New Zealand holds the upper hand in recent years, winning five of the last six encounters between the two sides.
Key Points to Watch:
- South Africa’s Batting: The Proteas’ batting woes were evident in the first Test. They need their top order, especially Zubyr Hamza and Keegan Petersen, to fire and provide a solid foundation.
- New Zealand’s Bowling: The Kiwi bowlers were exceptional in Christchurch, with Neil Wagner and Tim Southee leading the attack. They will be looking to replicate their performance and put pressure on the South African batsmen early on.
- Pitch and Conditions: Seddon Park is known for its seaming pitches that offer assistance to the bowlers early on. However, the pitch tends to flatten out as the match progresses. The weather forecast for the first day is clear skies, with a chance of rain later in the week.
