Test cricket returns on Friday with South Africa in action against New Zealand. The two teams meet in Durban to open up their summer.

Opening batsman Dean Elgar says he enjoys playing at Kingsmead: "It's a wicket where you can get in a really score big. It's been a good hunting ground. Hopefully it's another ground where you can contribute and get a win for the team."

Elgar says being bounced around the order in the beginning of his international career wasn't very helpful: "When I started my domestic career I open the batting 99% of the time. I'd like to think I've made the opening spot my own."
