Kane Williamson - who oversaw the country's 3-2 one-day global series defeat to South Africa last week - lost his sixth successive toss during South Africa's tour of New Zealand, but the Black Caps skipper was smiling when an error in judgement cost opener Stephen Cook (3) his wicket in the ninth over.

South African bowling unit had to toil hard for their wickets in the hour after Lunch but they did pick up three crucial ones later - including the well-settled duo of Williamson and Watling - to ensure the hosts don't build a massive lead.

Kane Williamson sparkled for the Black Caps with bat-in-hand, as he produced 78 not out, and was partnered well with Jeet Raval, as the two scored a considerable 102-run partnership.

Cuckfield recently announced the signing of Raval as their overseas for 2017 along with local stars Abi Sakande and Joe Ludlow.

Williamson had a narrow escape three overs before the break when an edge off Keshav Maharaj fell just short of Hashim Amla at first slip.

But soon after, everyone on the grounds was asked to leave, including the players, TV crew and media, support staff, and spectators. South Africa removed Tom Latham early, caught behind off Vern Philander for 10, and New Zealand were 15 for one. South Africa were 254 for five at that stage.

Williamson's ton brought him level with Ross Taylor and one behind the New Zealand record of 17 held by the Martin Crowe.

Starting off the day on 229/4, South Africa lost opener Dean Elgar fairly early on as he was caught behind off the bowling of Neil Wagner for a career-best 140, which came off 299 balls and included 24 boundaries.
