A brilliant batting performance from Rachin Ravindra, Captain Kane Williamson

A brilliant double century from Rachin Ravindra and two centuries from Kane Williamson helped New Zealand dominate the match with the bat, while fast bowler Kyle Jamieson and spinner Mitchell Santner took six wickets apiece in the match against a disappointing South Africa team.

New Zealand’s rising batting sensation Rachin Ravindra stunned after sharing a 219-run partnership with his ‘idol’ Kane Williamson on the first day of the first Test against South Africa at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on Sunday, February 4. Ravindra called it a ‘pinch-me’ moment and felt that life had come full circle for him.

Rachin was only 10 years old when Williamson made his Test debut and he grew up idolizing the former New Zealand captain.
After losing New Zealand’s openers, Tom Latham and Devon Conway early, Williamson and Rachin batted aggressively.

During their mammoth partnership, Williamson scored his record 30th Test century and Ravindra scored his maiden century in his fourth Test match. New Zealand ended the first day with 256 runs for the loss of 2 wickets.
