NZ vs SA Day 4 STUMPS: New Zealand need 332 runs- The Blackcaps are in serious trouble after Kagiso Rabada & Keshav Maharaj scalped twice against Kiwis on Day 4 in their final innings. Devon Conway is unbeaten on 60 along with Tom Blundell as the hosts face a tedious task to play the entire day to save the Test match. Meanwhile, Proteas will be keen to win the Test match and tie the Test series 1-1. Follow Insidesport.IN for all NZ vs SA LIVE Updates. 

Chasing 426, New Zealand got off to a horrendous start as the side lost wickets of Will Young (0) and Tom Latham (1) with just five runs on the board. The opening two wickets were taken by Kagiso Rabada. Henry Nicholls (7) also failed to leave a mark as he was bowled by Keshav Maharaj and New Zealand was reduced to 25/3 in the 12th over.
Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell then got together and revived the Kiwi innings. Both batters put on 56 runs for the fourth wicket, but half an hour before stumps, the hosts lost the wicket of Mitchell (24).

NZ vs SA: Kyle Verreynne hits century Earlier, resuming Day 4 at 140/5, South Africa added 214 more runs to the total before declaring, setting a daunting target for the hosts. Wicketkeeper Kyle Verreynne posted his maiden century to push South Africa to a lead of 400+ runs on day four of the second test against New Zealand in Christchurch on Monday. He struck unbeaten 136 runs off 187 balls comprising 16 boundaries and a six as SA declared at 354/9.

Kerreynne, who had failed to pass 30 in his five previous tests, found form when it counted as the Proteas moved to 232 for seven on a sunny day at Hagley Oval, boosting their hopes of a series-levelling win.

After being outplayed for two days, New Zealand held hope they could salvage the second Test as they reduced South Africa to 140 for five at stumps on day three in Christchurch on Sunday. It gave the Proteas an overall lead of 211 with five wickets remaining after posting 364 in their first innings and then bowling New Zealand out for 293. But there has been a momentum shift in the Test after South Africa dominated the first two days.

Day three went New Zealand’s way after they were rescued from 91 for five by a 133-run stand between Colin de Grandhomme and Daryl Mitchell on a docile wicket. When South Africa started their second innings 71 runs ahead, New Zealand needed quick wickets and Tim Southee and Matt Henry obliged to have the tourists 38-3.

A Southee inswinger beat Sarel Erwee’s bat and trapped the opener in front after he had scored eight off nine deliveries. Southee then removed Dean Elgar who was smartly caught one-handed by wicketkeeper Tom Blundell diving in front of first slip and was gone for 13.

Aiden Markram faced 25 balls before getting off the mark and gradually advanced to 14 before Henry, on a day when the short ball has been favoured, pitched up a yorker and Markram was bowled.

Rassie van der Dussen (45) and Temba Bavuma (23) steadied the South African innings with a 65-run stand in which van der Dussen was particularly hard on Neil Wagner as New Zealand’s short-ball specialist tried to tempt the batsmen into the hook shot.

He took 13 off one Wagner over and in the process took a little gloss off what was otherwise an outstanding day for de Grandhomme who top-scored for New Zealand with an unbeaten 120.

After taking 10 runs off three balls, van der Dussen popped a straightforward chance to square leg and as Wagner began to celebrate, de Grandhomme dropped the ball. However, Wagner won the battle five runs later when he had van der Dussen caught and bowled and followed up with the dismissal of Bavuma.

New Zealand had resumed the day at 157 for five and with de Grandhomme leading the charge they put on 136 in 35 overs. The Zimbabwean-born all-rounder produced his Test-best with an unbeaten 120 while Mitchell made 60.

Elgar turned to Wiaan Mulder to snap their century partnership but he lasted one over after de Grandhomme smacked back-to-back fours which led to the introduction of Keshav Maharaj who did make the breakthrough.

Mitchell had looked comfortable against the pace bowlers but was less certain against Maharaj’s spin. After edging one ball short of the sole slip, he played outside the line to the next and was trapped plumb in front. Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen mopped up the tail with Rabada taking five for 60 and Jansen four for 98.
