Matt Henry claimed a career-best 7-23 as New Zealand bowled out South Africa for 95 in two just sessions , their lowest score batting first since 1932 to take lead on the opening test in Christchurch on Thursday. New Zealand are 116 for three. Henry Nicholls is not out on 37 with nightwatchman Neil Wagner, who was dropped in the final over, on two.
Nicholls and Devon Conway put on a stand of 75 and take New Zealand into the lead but Olivier got rid when he bowled Conway off the inside-edge. That could have given South Africa some cheer at the end of a long day but van der Dussen dropped a late chance when nightwatchman Neil Wagner turned an Oliver delivery to him at short leg.
Brief score at stumps day 1: New Zealand 116 for 3 (Nicholls 37*, Wagner 2*) lead South Africa 95 (Hamza 25, Henry 7-23) by 21 runs
