New Zealand strike early in the match against South Africa after wet outfield reduced the game to a 49-over contest at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
What a ripper from Trent Boult, de Kock had no answer to that. Full and straight, tailing in, no foot movement from de Kock and the ball crashes into the leg stump.
Earlier, New Zealand won the toss and opted to field first against South Africa.
New Zealand are unchanged while South Africa make one change, with Lungi Ngidi coming in to replace Beuran Hendricks.
New Zealand, eyeing the top spot in the points table, have decided to go in with the same unchanged side. South Africa, on the other hand, have picked a fit-again Lungi Ngidi.
The New Zealand new-ball bowlers would look to make use of the overcast conditions by making early inroads into the South African batting line-up.
