Considering the day 2 performance: South Africa scored 126 runs and lost 7 wickets. On the other hand, New Zealand scored 157 runs and lost 5 wickets. 

South Africa had an amazing first matchday. However, on the second day, they failed to capitulate to the advantage of the solid foundation.

Keshav scored 36 runs and helped South Africa to reach a respectable total of 364 runs. In response, New Zealand lost early wickets and were 2 for 9 runs in the 4th over of the match. 

On the second day, the New Zealand pace head didn’t take much time to bag a brace of wickets. His first prey was Bavuma who was batting at 29. Next within two overs, he nicked to Verreynne behind the wickets. 

After being 261/5, South Africa continued to lose wickets and failed to build any momentum. Marko Jansen and Keshav Mahraj scored quick 37 and 36 runs respectively.
