South Africa has won the toss and will bowl first in the second cricket test against New Zealand, in Wellington.

The Black Caps have made three changes to the side which drew the first test in Dunedin.

Ross Taylor and Trent Boult are both out injured replaced by Neil Broom, who'll be making his test debut and Tim Southee.

Spinner Mitch Santner has been dropped and replaced by medium pacer Colin de Grandhomme, leaving Jeetan Patel the only spinner in the side and after 22 tests finally gets the chance to play at his home ground.
