NZ SA 2nd Test LIVE: The notorious bowl-first green wicket at Hagley Oval has been a happy hunting ground for New Zealand with eight wins from 10 Tests.

Kyle Jamieson — who has taken 24 wickets in four Tests at the ground — said winning the toss was not necessarily an advantage.

“When we’ve batted first we’ve been able to see through tough periods and come outside the other side, so while it’s a bit important I don’t think it necessarily determines the outcome,” Kyle Jamieson said ahead of the match.

How things panned out in 1st Test? New Zealand won the toss in the first Test and rolled South Africa for 95 and 111, while scoring 482 in their one turn at bat.

While they downplayed the importance of the toss, Henry Nicholls, who scored 105 in New Zealand’s colossal innings-and-276- run victory, said familiarity with the ground was important.

“From a batting point of view, we know it’s tough but when you have that experience that’s the perk of having a home advantage,” he said.
