Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen delivered their best when needed with the ball in the final innings as South Africa was able to pull up a win over New Zealand by 198 runs in the 2nd Test at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch to draw the 2-match series by 1-1. New Zealand resumed their Day 5 at 94/4, Devon Conway and Tom Blundell tried to keep New Zealand in the game and the duo managed to do that up to an extent with aggression which acted as a ray of hope for the hosts.
In the 1st session, South Africa just took 1 wicket as Lutho Sipamla got the better of Conway who was looking good as he scored 92. However, in the 2nd session, the script of the whole match changed as South Africa took wickets in quick successions and once South Africa got the wicket of Blundell (44), New Zealand’s innings went down.
