South Africa are preparing up for a second successive series that's being hyped up as a battle of the bowlers – this time against New Zealand, comprising two Tests in Christchurch. After reigning supreme against the most lethal Indian pace battery to ever visit the rainbow nation, Dean Elgar believes his batting line-up is in fine fettle. The Kiwi speedsters will be operating on the surface with a reputation for being the quickest in the country. Hagley Oval, where both games will be played, is known for its pace and bounce, said Elgar in a pre-match presser.
