Bafana Bafana and Angola played to a goalless draw in an international friendly match held at a packed Buffalo City Stadium on Tuesday, 28 March 2017. With the result, South Africa extended their unbeaten run to 17 games.

A moment of silence was observed before the start of the fixture in remembrance of the late liberation struggle icon Ahmed Kathrada who passed away on Sunday morning (28 March 2017) as well former Bloemfontein Celtic owner Dr. Petrus “Whitehead” Molemela who lost his life this past Sunday (26 March 2017).

Rain was the winner on the final day of the Standard Bank Proteas’ international season as an abandoned final day of the third Test against New Zealand meant they finished with a draw at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Wednesday.

The result also ensured South Africa won the series 1-0 thanks to their eight-wicket win in the second Test in Wellington, while it ended a dream summer – they won every series – in second place on the ICC rankings, having started it in seventh back in August last year.

South Africa will need to draw from their blueprint of fight and courage to overcome the tough challenge to save the third Test match against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton. It has been done before; against Australia in Adelaide in 2012, and against India in Johannesburg in 2013, performances which have given assistant coach, Adrian Birrell, the belief and optimism of a repeat in history.

The Proteas will remain hopeful if captain, Faf du Plessis, remains at the crease. Du Plessis was at the forefront of both batting saves and together with Quinton de Kock -who is the Proteas’ most in-form batsman this series- hold the key of withstanding the 98 overs remaining in the match.

South Africa will need their dependable lower order to rescue them one final time this summer on the final day of their tour to New Zealand on Wednesday after their top order was badly exposed on the penultimate day of the third Test in Hamilton on Tuesday.

On a day dominated by the hosts, South Africa reached stumps on a woeful 80/5 in reply to the Black Caps’ first-innings 489 – still trailing by 95. This happened despite no obvious alarms in the pitch, with the tourists let down by some poor shot selection and a horrendous run-out.

Quinton de Kock fell just short of another century as the South Africa enjoyed the better of a rain-hit second day against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday.

South Africa’s star wicketkeeper, who came into the game with an injury cloud hanging over his head, made a busy 90 (118 balls, 11 fours, 2 sixes) – his ninth career 50 – to shepherd another wagging tail as the tourist made 314 all out.
