CENTURION, South Africa (AP) — South Africa was 105-6 in its second innings to lead New Zealand by 372 runs in the second test at stumps Monday on an increasingly difficult batting wicket.
South Africa's advantage came after it made 481-8 declared in its first innings and bowled New Zealand out for 214, with fast bowlers Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander taking eight of the New Zealand wickets.
Only New Zealand captain Kane Williamson resisted with his 77. Williamson was the last man out as New Zealand trailed by 267 runs after the first innings.
South Africa extended that to approaching 400 in the final session on the third day despite struggling on a seaming wicket at SuperSport Park. Quinton de Kock made 50 for his second half-century of the test.
