Amla four runs, Andrew Ellis to Hashim Amla 4 runs

South Africa 136 for 2 (Amla 63, Petersen 44*, Duminy 23*) v New Zealand

WELLINGTON: South Africa’s batsmen made a mockery of supposedly helpful bowling conditions to finish the weather-affected first day of the third and final test against New Zealand on 136 for two.

A fluent 63 from Hashim Amla eased South Africa to 136 for 2 at stumps, after a wet outfield in the morning and poor light late in the day only allowed 42 overs to be bowled
