New Zealand are not allowing any freebies and this is forcing this pair to look for quick singles, which can be tight if the fielders hit the stumps.
Pacemen Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson put New Zealand on top against South Africa as the Proteas struggled once again at the World Cup.
Black Caps captain Kane Williamson won the toss and sent South Africa into bat, hoping to take advantage of bowler-friendly conditions. He was rewarded in just the second over when Boult demolished Quinton de Kock's stumps, sending him back for just five.
Hashim Amla and skipper Faf du Plessis played some fluent shots as the Proteas recovered to reach 59-1 in the 14th over. But Ferguson then produced a yorker to bowl Du Plessis for 23 immediately after a bouncer.
