Henry Nicholls (105) brought about his eighth Test hundred while Tom Blundell and Colin de Grandhomme made vital contributions as New Zealand stretched the lead to 261 at Tea on day two of the opening Test versus South Africa. Despite finding themselves behind the eight ball, the Proteas had started the second session on a promising note with Glenton Stuurman tempting Daryll Mitchell to waft at an outswinger, only for the all-rounder to edge one to the cordon. Nicholls then notched up three figures by cracking one through the point region.
