2nd ODI: Taylor smashes ton as New Zealand beat South Africa

23 February, 2017, 01:00 | Author: Felix Jensen

Taylor's unbeaten 102 against the Proteas in Christchurch saw him join Ricky Ponting, Herschelle Gibbs, Sachin Tendulkar, Hashim Amla and Virat Kohli as players to have scored 50-over tons against each of the other nine Test-playing sides. The South African juggernaut, that had won a record 12 ODIs in a row, was finally halted, owing to an unbeaten century from Ross Taylor and Trent Boult's three-wicket haul.

Captain Kane Williamson and Taylor stabilised the innings with a 104-run partnership, during which Williamson breezed past his fifty, before he was sent packing by Imran Tahir for 69, which came off 75 balls and included six boundaries. De Kock went about business in the only way that he's familiar with and attacked the bowling with Faf du Plessis for company.

South Africa won the toss and made a decision to bowl first.

He said the Black Caps needed to build steadily through their innings at Hagley Oval and aim for a big finish.

Tsonga lands Rotterdam title
Cilic was beaten 7-6 (8), 7-6 (5) by sixth-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who defeated the former U.S. The silky Belgian third seed will be hunting his third career title and his first since 2014.

Taylor completed his ton in dramatic fashion with a boundary off the last ball of the innings, claiming a New Zealand record of 17 ODI centuries.

De Kock added a 53-run stand with JP Duminy (34) and it ended when the latter was stumped off Mitchell Santner (2-46). Jimmy Neesham provided the fireworks for the home crowd with his 71 not out (57 balls, 6 fours). The 32-year-old, who had shared the record of 16 with Nathan Astle, has been in a rich vein of form since returning from eye surgery in early January.

De Villiers (45) and David Miller (28) kept South Africa in the hunt with a 67-run stand, but once again, a double strike pegged South Africa back as the pair departed in the span of three overs.

Pretorius (50 from 27 balls) and Andile Phehlukwayo (29 not out), who had helped de Villiers through to the four-wicket victory in Hamilton, however, then combined for 61 runs in 7.2 overs to put New Zealand's nerves on edge.
