Robin Peterson has New Zealand in a spin
Peterson struck again when he bowled Kane Williamson shortly before tea. New Zealand were 64 for two at the interval, still needing 340 runs to avoid an innings defeat. Dale Steyn earlier took five for 17 as New Zealand were bowled out for 121 in their first innings, a deficit of 404. McCullum and Martin Guptill made a cautious start as New Zealand set out to try to avoid their second successive innings defeat. They saw off the new ball attack of Steyn and Morne Morkel as they put on 40 for the first wicket.
After being dismissed by Peterson in the second innings in the first Test at Cape Town and in the first innings in the current match, McCullum played Peterson with exaggerated caution before missing a delivery which went straight on and trapped him leg before wicket for 11.
Steyn had a spell of three wickets for three runs in five overs on Sunday morning to reduce New Zealand to 62 for nine in reply to South Africa's 525 for eight declared. But BJ Watling made a defiant 63 and added 59 for the last wicket with Trent Boult (17 not out) before Watling was last man out, caught at first slip off Morne Morkel.
