S.Africa win toss, bowl in 2nd N.Zealand ODI

New Zealand are yet to lose a one-day international at Christchurch's Hagley Oval from five matches

In the same over, Taylor smashed a boundary to reach his fifty and also complete 6,000 runs in ODIs. "Records are there to be broken and for the next player to come along and beat me as well". De Kock went about business in the only way that he's familiar with and attacked the bowling with Faf du Plessis for company.

Williamson brought his own half-century off 59 balls and the 100-run partnership came in the 30th over by the end of which the Black Caps were positioned 155 for two.

After adding 40 runs with skipper Kane Williamson (69), Brownlie was trapped LBW by Dwaine Pretorius (2-40) in the 13th over. Neesham's unbeaten 57-ball 71 had just six boundaries, while Taylor's unbeaten 110-ball 102 had eight, which threw light on the importance of their running between the wickets that held them in good stead.

With his Christchurch ton, Taylor also became just the fourth New Zealander to tally 6000 ODI runs after Astle, Brendon McCullum and Stephen Fleming.


The only other change to the Proteas line-up sees batsman David Miller replace Kagiso Rabada, who de Villiers said had a knee niggle.

New Zealand named an unchanged lineup and finds itself under pressure to quickly recover from the first match loss which handed South Africa a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. The 32-year-old, who had shared the record of 16 with Nathan Astle, has been in a rich vein of form since returning from eye surgery in early January.

Pretorius (50 from 27 balls) and Andile Phehlukwayo (29 not out), who had helped de Villiers through to the four-wicket victory in Hamilton, however, then combined for 61 runs in 7.2 overs to put New Zealand's nerves on edge.

The target was down to 20 runs off the final two overs and Boult castled the South African all-rounder in the final ball of the penultimate over leaving 15 runs to get off the final six deliveries.
