New Zealand vs South Africa, 3rd Test, Day 1 in Hamilton: As It Happened


Catch all the live action of the opening day of the third Test between New Zealand and South Africa in Hamilton.


New Zealand, under pressure to win if they are to level the series, were dealt with a crushing blow as pacemen Trent Boult and Tim Southee have been ruled out of the Test.

Meanwhile, South Africa have no experienced back up for de Kock, who plays a prominent role in their balance as a wicketkeeper-batsman. The uncapped Heinrich Klaasen is travelling as the sole replacement.
