Pitch and Weather Report
A cloudy start to the day is expected with chances of light rain showers. However, it is expected to get dry and bright as the day wears on. The pacers will get early assistance from the pitch.
Teams batting first have won three of last four games played here.
Faf du Plessis (c), Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, JP Duminy, Dwaine Pretorius, Beuran Hendricks, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi.
Kane Williamson (capt), Tom Blundell (wk), Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor.
With no more room left for error for the Proteas, they have to somehow find a way to outperform New Zealand.
With injury scares South Africa has already suffered a lot, but the good news is Lungi Ngidi is fit and ready to take the field against New Zealand, which will provide much-needed strength.
Hashim Amla and Quinton-de-Kock have regained their form, but Aiden Markram and David Miller are still short of confidence.
Imran Tahir will surely be player to watch out for owing to his match-winning performance in the previous game.
New Zealand after a terrific performance in first matches are close to sealing a semi-final berth but are yet to show their best.
New Zealand has won its three games against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. Apart from Bangladesh, the other two are not strong opponents, their toughest challenges still lie ahead.
The bowling department has so far done an impressive job, they too have an explosive top order, which is performing up to the mark.
However middle order needs a little more strengthening, but the good news is at least they do not have any injury woes.
Quinton-de-Kock, Ross Taylor, Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, Chris Morris, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Imran Tahir, and Lungi Ngidi. Captain: Quinton-de-Kock, Vice Captain: Colin Munro.
