Blackcaps are leading to the second Test against South Africa on Friday. They will be looking forward to sealing the deal with a victory. 

For South Africa, this match will equally require determination and strenuous effort to pull off a victory. The New Zealand side has always performed dominantly on their home grounds.

The match will be played at Hagley Oval, Christchurch. In the last match, the Blackcaps were all over the Proteas. They didn’t have the slightest chance to stay in the match. Also, we saw the continuous struggle of the South African top order batting line-up. 

South Africa scored 95 and 111 in the first and third innings. In the second innings, New Zealand posted a mammoth total of 482 runs.

What to Expect?

Struggle in batting and bowling both was a big issue for the South African side. The match moved so rapidly and in all instances, South Africa found themselves far behind New Zealand. 

However, a new match is always an opportunity to put things in the right place. For New Zealand, there are plenty of headaches to set the formidable playing 11. 

Trent Boult will again miss the second test against the South African side. This will open the door for Matt Henry who performed exceptionally well in the previous match taking 9 wickets.

A draw in Christchurch would give New Zealand its first series win against South Africa in 17 tries.

A win would not only complete a 2-0 series whitewash but also knock Australia off the top of the global rankings.

On this ground, New Zealand have won eight wins from ten Tests. The legendary bowl-first green surface at Hagley Oval has been a pleasant hunting ground for New Zealand.

Kyle Jamieson has taken 24 wickets in four Tests at the venue. Thus, New Zealand seems to be in a far more comfortable seat in this match.

South Africa had an amazing home test series against India in a 2-1 victory. South Africa has always been known for coming late and taking up their chances. This match appears similar but defeating a World Test Champion team in their home ground will require accurately executed plans and decisive innings.
