New Zealand vs South Africa Live: When and where to watch NZ vs SA 2nd Test on TV and streaming in India?

The stage is set in Hamilton for what promises to be a gripping chapter in the cricketing clash between New Zealand and South Africa, as the two teams prepare to face each other in the second Test starting Tuesday, February 13. With the series lead at stake, the New Zealand team is vying to seal their dominance by clinching a victory following their resounding win in the series opener in Tauranga.

That first encounter saw New Zealand, leveraging their home advantage, triumph over the visiting Proteas with an assertive 281-run margin. Veteran batsman Kane Williamson was the star of the show, hitting two centuries, and was ably supported by Rachin Ravindra, who recorded a career-best score of 240. On paper and in practice, New Zealand’s strength has outshone the relatively inexperienced South African contingent, amplifying the pressure on the visitors as they seek redemption on New Zealand’s turf.

Despite the emergence of this stark disparity, Shukri Conrad, the head coach for South Africa, seems to have perceived the first Test as a critical wake-up call for his squad. However, the question lingers – does the Proteas team harbor the resilience and strategic depth to counter a New Zealand side steeped in confidence and on-field synergy? The looming absence of New Zealand’s hard-hitting all-rounder Daryl Mitchell does give a glimmer of hope that perhaps South Africa could exploit this to their advantage. If the South African bowlers can rattle New Zealand early on, the underdogs may be able to fashion a plucky resistance, and in doing so, keep the spark of competition alive.

As the countdown to the second Test intensifies, fans in India eagerly awaiting the outcome will have to resort to digital platforms to catch the live action. The match is scheduled to commence at 3:30 AM IST on February 13, and while no live telecast will be broadcasting the game on television in India, enthusiasts can tune in to Amazon Prime Video for live streaming coverage.

New Zealand’s lineup boasts a rich mix of experienced stalwarts and upcoming talents such as Tom Latham, Devon Conway, Will Young, and Rachin Ravindra among others. The squad includes Tom Blundell(W), Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Matt Henry, Tim Southee(c), Neil Wagner, and William ORourke. South Africa’s response will be the responsibility of promising cricketers including Edward Moore, Neil Brand(c), Raynard van Tonder, Zubayr Hamza, David Bedingham, Keegan Petersen, Ruan de Swardt, Clyde Fortuin(W), Duanne Olivier, Tshepo Moreki, Dane Paterson, Mihlali Mpongwana, Dane Piedt, Khaya Zondo, and Shaun von Berg.

As this pivotal Test approaches, the New Zealand hosts appear poised for a potential series clincher. Yet in the game of cricket, it’s the uncertainty and the magic of the contest that captivate audiences worldwide. Each delivery bowled and every run scored can sway fortunes, and as South Africa gears up to claim their stake in this historic rivalry, spectators can expect a battle defined by resilience, strategy, and perhaps an upset that could reshuffle the cricketing cards. The coming days will reveal if South Africa can surmount the odds and if the Kiwis will continue their march towards a series sweep.
