Boult out, Southee in, Broom to debut in second test

Stephen Cook needs runs urgently Piedt to bolster SA spin depth in NZ

Left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner opened the bowling for New Zealand in both games‚ and in one of them he and off-spinner Jeetan Patel became the first pair of slow bowlers to take the new ball in ODI history.

The injury throws up a selection conundrum for New Zealand.

New Zealand have replaced the injured Taylor with 33-year-old Neil Broom who did not have the happiest time in the one-day series against South Africa.

Du Plessis admitted the squeeze will be on Broom, a veteran batsman but one feeling his way into test cricket.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said he also would have bowled had he won the toss, but the pitch looked good after a restricted preparation and batting should become easier after the first hour at the Basin Reserve.

"It's important for us to put pressure on him, not make him feel comfortable and not giving him easy boundaries and runs so he settles".

Since making his debut for Canterbury in 2002, he has crafted an average of 39.28, racking up 18 centuries, including a top score of 203 not out.

South Africa on Tuesday called up off-spinner Dane Piedt to join their squad for the third and final Test against New Zealand in Hamilton, starting on March 25.

Faf du Plessis said: "He's a fantastic bowler and a huge loss for them". While Tim Southee will return to take Boult's place it seems unlikely that the Black Caps will play two spinners on what appears to be a green top in Wellington. "There lies the secret".

The Proteas should field an unchanged line-up on a Basin Reserve wicket which isn't expected to offer any surprises.
