After winning the toss SA decided to bat first and scored 236 runs off 77.4 overs with eight wickets down on the first day of the first test against New Zealand. HM Amla completed his fifty (53 runs) off 71 balls with ten 4s. When his wicket down then 34.5 135.9 kph, Amla falls. Big, big, big wicket for NZ.
Fullish delivery on off and middle, the ball swings back late and takes the inside edge. Amla fishes at that and gets an inside edge onto his back thigh. The ball lobs up for Watling. That late shape back in responsible for another wicket 106/4.
