South Africa will go into the match under pressure after losing their opening game against Sri Lanka. To add to their problems, their skipper, Faf du Plessis may not play the match. Their star bowler, Dale Steyn, hasn’t shown the flair he usually does and the list of problems goes on for the Proteas but Imran Tahir is something they can look up to from their match against Sri Lanka. New Zealand managed to get 1 point after rain spoiled their match against England.
New Zealand’s bowlers seem to be struggling too with no bowler able to show finesse. They have an unproven middle order which they hope will work for them.
