SA v New Zealand
January 2, 2013 9:52am CST
It looks like South Africa will beat New Zealand in 3 days. They were bowled out for 45 today and so far South Africa has a 177 run lead, the last time I checked the score card for the last of 3 wickets. They will have to bowl good and bat fore ever in the second innings to avoid defeat. What you guys think. Please tell me.

At the end of the day South Africa are 252/3 with the massive lead of 207 runs. Alviro Petersen is still playing strong on 103. Well its only the day 1 and South Africa already gained massive lead and from here it looks the match will end around 3 days. And now only miracle can save New Zealand from heavy defeat. Vernon Philander just destroyed the Kiwis as he takes 5 wickets in 6 overs and gives away only 7 runs. Only Kane Williamson reaches double figures as he makes 13 runs out of the total score of 45. Surely that was disaster for New Zealand and I dont think they will comeback after this situation. Even if they bat well in second innings still they can not save this match.

It was surprising to know NewZeland being bowled out for so low score. It happens that at times, teams get bowled out for lowly totals. And the way South Africa is playing here, and played in Australia, they seem to have a strong grip on the match. Only some resolute fightback can save NewZealand in this match.

South Africa 347 for 8 declared with a lead of 303 runs. New Zealand in their second Innings 3 for 1. I think New Zealand is looking down the barrel of doom. Their is no way they can come back from this. Steyn took the wicket so far. As I said earlier SA will win in 3 days bur it may be with in 2 days, tell what you guys think. Bye for now.
