South Africa drafts in extra spinner for New Zealand

South Africa drafts in extra spinner for New Zealand

Tim Southee makes his return, with Trent Boult having been ruled out with injury.

"It's up to us to put pressure on him and not give him boundaries and easy runs so he settles".

Where Boult's position has gone to the even more experienced Tim Southee, whom South African skipper du Plessis rates highly, New Zealand's batting is vulnerable, now Taylor is absent.

Merkel's Washington visit to meet Trump postponed to March 17
An official said that Trump has not yet decided on whether to continue to pursue the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP).

"I said before the series that if we can get rid of Williamson and Taylor there's a lot of pressure on the rest of the batting lineup", du Plessis told reporters.

"There's a couple of question marks round a couple of players but I can confirm I come in for Trent and Neil Broom comes in for Rosco (Taylor)".

The playing eleven will be finalised just before play starts tomorrow.

NCAA Tournament: Oregon Ducks Land 3 Seed In Midwest, Face Iona Friday
After falling behind as many as 14 points in the second half, the Ducks' furious rally came up short in a 83-80 Arizona win. Brooks, the recently-named Pac-12 Player of the Year, scored 11 points in the first half, pacing OR and frustrating ASU.

The 27-year-old has played in 7 Tests for South Africa, the last of which came against the Black Caps at Centurion in 2016. A twin-spin attack would appear unlikely - the last time New Zealand did that at the Basin Reserve was in 2000 - which leaves Mitchell Santner vulnerable to either Colin de Grandhomnme, who would be a straight swap at No. 8, or Matt Henry who lengthen the tail. "He relies on instinct so yes, Jeetan has got the best of him this series but Quinton will always find a way". "He's a guy who's not scared of a challenge", du Plessis said.

"We couldn't get rid of Kane in the first test and they were successful as a unit".

This has meant going into a Test with only two frontline seamers.

"You go 1-0 down in the series there's no coming back from that so it's getting yourself in a position where you can try and make sure you win".
