New Zealand would be facing South Africa in the first of the two-match Test series at the Hagley Oval Stadium in Christchurch on February 17, Thursday. The match is set to start at 3:30 am IST (Indian Standard Time). After an impressive comeback Test series win over India in January, South Africa would be pretty confident of their chances when they face the World Test Champions in their backyard. Dean Elgar’s men might not start as favourites but have every chance of upstaging the hosts at home, who would once again be led by Tom Latham, in place of the injured Kane Williamson. Furthermore, New Zealand would miss the services of pace spearhead in Trent Boult who is awaiting his child’s birth. On top of that, there would be no Ross Taylor this time around as the latter retired from the game.
