A quick-fire century by Neil McKenzie put South Africa in a strong position at stumps on the first day of their match against New Zealand's Central Districts on Friday.

McKenzie scored an unbeaten 100 off 150 balls, hitting 12 fours and four sixes, as the tourists notched up 286 for five. Stand-in captain Mark Boucher declared as soon as McKenzie reached his century.

The South African bowlers then claimed two quick wickets to leave Central Districts on 36 for two at close of play.

Pace bowlers David Terbrugge and Andre Nel took a wicket each for the tourists, leaving Districts batsmen Mathew Sinclair on 13 and captain Glen Sulzberger on one.
