New Zealand's mitigation on the final day of the Christchurch Test came undone by promising left-arm seamer Marco Jansen's shot-ball barrage as the hosts were defeated by 198 runs at the Hagley Oval, on Monday, March 1. With this win, South Africa not only achieved series parity in the two-game rubber but also maintained their run of never losing a Test series to New Zealand. NZ had come into the fifth day with 336 runs required and only five wickets in hand, and Jansen's fiery salvo coupled with the indecisiveness of the New Zealand batters paved the way for the Kiwi collapse.
