South Africa are motivated to finish a successful season with a win in the third Test match against New Zealand starting at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Saturday. The Proteas have been boosted by the fitness of wicket-keeper batsman, Quinton de Kock, who passed a late fitness test on Friday after sustaining an injury to his right index finger.

Proteas captain, Faf du Plessis, says victory will be another tick on a growing list of achievements this season, with series wins against New Zealand at home, Australia away and Sri Lanka at home in the bag. The Proteas have the T20 International and One-Day series trophies in the cabinet for this tour, and have set their aim on the treble against the hosts.

New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult has been ruled out of the third ANZ Test against South Africa in Hamilton after failing to recover fully from his groin injury.

Boult felt pain in the groin region during the first ANZ Test in Dunedin, forcing him to miss the following match in Wellington. New Zealand Selector Gavin Larsen said that while Boult has worked hard to make himself available, it was clear he needed further recovery  time before getting back on the park.

South African seamer Vernon Philander returns to a happy hunting ground for the third Test match against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton. Philander claimed a career-best return of 6/44 and match figures of 10/114 in the nine-wicket win in 2012 – and was also supported by Dale Steyn who took 5/80 - a clinical performance which reinforced his arrival on the international stage on his first away tour with the Proteas.

This was only his sixth match for South Africa, but it set the platform which led to him becoming the second-fastest player to reach 50 Test wickets after only seven Test matches in that series.

South African off-spinner Dane Piedt, who was included in the squad for their final cricket Test against New Zealand here, on Monday said the home side should have backed their pace bowlers rather than spinners.

Left-arm orthodox spinner Keshav Maharaj's career-best 6-40 guided South Africa to a comfortable victory in the second Test in Wellington to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

South African left-arm spinner, Keshav Maharaj, has praised the support from the pace bowlers after his career-best haul of 6/40 in the eight-wicket win against New Zealand in the second Test match in Wellington on Saturday. Maharaj defied the traditionally seam-friendly conditions to help dismiss the hosts for 171 in their second innings, but believes he capitalised on the pressure created by Vernon Philander (0/38) and Morne Morkel (3/50) with the new ball, along with Kagiso Rabada (1/38) who was at his fast fiery best.

“The seamers helped me out a lot, they made it difficult to score,” he admitted after his man-of-the-match performance on Saturday. “Vernon and Morne upfront with the new ball were the best that we know them to be. I put the ball in the right area and managed to get a few scalps here and there.

Keshav Maharaj claimed career-best figures to help bowl South Africa into a 1-0 series lead after they completed a thumping eight-wicket win over New Zealand deep into the third day of the second Test at the Basin Reserve in Wellington on Saturday.

The slow-left-armer took 6/40 in 20.2 overs to overhaul his previous best of 5/94, which he managed in the previous Test, as the hosts were emphatically dismissed for 171 in their second innings, leaving a target or 81 for South Africa.
