New Zealand vs South Africa | NZ vs SA Live Score Updates, ICC World Cup 2023: A Clash of Titans
The Wankhede is set to host the best of four on Wednesday, with South Africa taking on New Zealand. The Proteas come into the game well, having lost just one of their six matches in the competition so far. On the other hand, the Kiwis have lost their last two matches after a great start to the tournament.
New Zealand’s 23-year-old all-rounder Rachin Ravindra will look to keep his form going into this clash, after scoring a century in their win against Australia, and the Proteas bowling attack will do its best to shut down.
South Africa’s top order is firing on all cylinders, led by Quentin de Kock and Aiden Markram. The Proteas will look to take a page from their rugby counterparts, who won the Rugby World Cup against New Zealand over the weekend.
The Blackcaps and the Proteas have gone head to head 71 times in the 50-over game, with the South Africans boasting the better record, having won 41 of the matches, with just 25 wins for the Kiwis.
Of the five wins that South Africa have registered in the tournament so far, four of those have been won by a margin of at least one hundred runs, with Temba Bavuma’s men racking up high totals and consequently shutting out their opponents.
The Kiwis could get a boost from the potential return of captain Kane Williamson, who has missed all but one of their games in the tournament so far with a thumb injury. New Zealand may miss bowler Lockie Ferguson, who has been injured.
The South African squad, led by Temba Bavuma, includes Gerald Coetzee, Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Marco Jansen, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van de Dussen, and Lizaad Williams.
The Blackcaps brought Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Mitch Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee and Will Young to the tour .
