South Africa progresses to 358-5 in 2nd test vs. New Zealand
CENTURION, South Africa (AP) South Africa continued to build a solid first-innings score in the second test against New Zealand, moving to 358-5 at lunch on the second day on Sunday.
JP Duminy was out for 88 for one of two wickets for New Zealand in the first session at SuperSport Park, but captain Faf du Plessis went to the break 57 not out to ensure all South Africa's top five batsmen made half-centuries.
Duminy was caught behind trying to play a pull shot off Tim Southee and missed out on a first test century in two years. South Africa-born Neil Wagner had Temba Bavuma caught off a top edge for 8, giving Wagner figures of 3-65.
The short two-test series will be decided in the second match after the weather-affected first test was drawn.
