(Video) South Africa on top despite Colin de Grandhomme’s fifty

Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen snared five wickets between them to ensure South Africa won the honours on consecutive days at the Hagley Oval. That idea may have seemed far-fetched given how the day began, but a ninth-wicket stand between Keshav Maharaj and Marco Jansen extended South Africa’s first-innings total after which the same pair broke through New Zealand’s top-order. At stumps, New Zealand were still 207 runs in arrears, but were put back on the recovery path courtesy Colin de Grandhomme’s typically counter-punching half-century.
