New Zealand Vs South Africa 1st Test Match 7 Mar Live

Ross TaylorAfter a tumultuous time in the limited over matches, New Zealand will be battling to stage a comeback in the test matches when the first match starts on Wednesday at Dunedin.

After a winning start in the T20 series, New Zealand slumped to not only concede the T20 series, but also got whitewashed in the ODIs. Issues off the field also failed to stay away as two players were found guilty of breaching the team's conduct.

Between those two, Jesse Ryder has failed to find a spot in the test match squad owing to his poor form as well as consistent disciplinary issues. However, Doug Bracewell managed to retain his place after being dropped from the final ODI.

Bracewell is one of the rising talents and performed impressively on the Australian tour last year. Injury concerns have also plagued the home side, with first-choice wicket-keeper BJ Watling ruled out. It will result in South African-born Kruger vab Wyk making his debut at the age of 32. Ross Taylor returns to lead the team while Brendon McCullum will play as a specialist batsman.

South Africa have been in rich form ever since AB de Villiers took over the captaincy duties. A clinical performance in the T20s and ODIs would also undoubtedly give the team plenty of confidence going into the test match. The squad has plenty of depth with the experience of Graeme Smith, Hashim Amla, de Villiers, Jacques Kallis and Dale Steyn. Smith faces a stiff challenge as he looks to overcome the challenge posed by Kiwi pacer Chris Martin who has dismissed him six times. Mark Boucher will be hoping to perform well to push himself into contention for England tour that he has mentioned will be his last in national colors.

The University Oval ground in Dunedin has hosted three matches, with the home side winning two while their rain-affected match against West Indies ended in a draw.
