South African quick bowler Vernon Philander has started the new year in top form after taking 5 wickets to help dismiss Black Caps for 45 in the 1st session of the 1st Test at Newlands on today.
New Zealand were left reeling after Philander ran rampant to dismantle the guests top order. Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel got the remaining wickets with 2 and 3 scalps respectively and the whole squad was demolished for 45 in 19.2 overs only.
South Africa: Graeme Smith (captain), Alviro Petersen, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis, Dean Elgar, Robin Peterson, Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel.
New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum (captain), Kane Williamson, Dean Brownlie, Daniel Flynn, BJ Watling, James Franklin, Doug Bracewell, Trent Boult, Jeetan Patel, Chris Martin.
