PORT ELIZABETH - South Africa handed New Zealand another crushing defeat, this time in the second test at Saint George's Park in Port Elizabeth on Monday.

The innings and 193-run victory is a record margin for the Proteas over the Black Caps, as they win with a 2-0 lead in the series.

It was never expected to be a tight contest. 

But in consecutive tests now, Captain Graeme Smith’s troops have showed why they are the most feared test unit in world cricket. 

Reminiscent of David and Goliath, the Black Caps have been completely outplayed in all aspects, losing by an innings and 27 runs in a three-day demolition in Cape Town by a record inning and 193 runs.

The Proteas are now headed into the One Day International format where the visitors are expected to be slightly more competitive.
