Despite the eight wicket capitulation in the second test at the Basin Reserve the New Zealand selectors have opted to keep the same squad for the Hamilton test, where the home side must win if they are to level the series.

Allrounders James Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme were also expected to come under scrutiny after recent batting failures but Larsen said the selectors had faith in current squad members.

While South Africa have beefed up their spin department by including offspinner Dane Piedt for the final Test at Seddon Park, in what Faf du Plessis expects the to pitch to turn into a "dustbowl", New Zealand haven't added an extra spinner in the form of leggie Ish Sodhi.

McMillan said being dismissed for 268 and 171 was unacceptable in Wellington.

With no batting reserves Neil Broom will have an opportunity to make up for his disappointing Test debut where he managed 0 and 20 in his two efforts. Obviously the one-day games it did.

If Boult does return it may leave Tim Southees place in the XI in doubt, with Neil Wagner proving to be tricky for the Proteas to handle in the series so far.

Lingard joked he had to do the celebration as Marcus Rashford, within earshot, fluffed his lines on Teesside. In Portugal, every team that plays in Europe they play on the next Monday.

In the top-six Jimmy Neesham could be most under threat after a poor test in Wellington but he remains the top allrounder in the injured Corey Anderson's absence. I'm sure there'll be plenty of discussions. "We do need to play that a hell of a lot better".

There are problems further up the order, with opening Tom Latham having failed to pass 10 in his last eight global innings.

New Zealand couldn't capitalise on having South Africa 94-6 on Friday, and seizing their rare chances against quality opponents remained their achilles heel. Yesterday was a bad day.

"To lose within three days is unacceptable and the group is hurting and disappointed". Anyone would when you go through a rut like he's encountering at the moment.but he will do everything he can between now and the first ball on Saturday to get himself in the right shape to score runs.

"It's important to remember, while yesterday wasn't good, it's only just over a week ago that we performed pretty well in that first Test. We need to get him back to making those good decisions and everything else will flow from there".
