Dream11 Team NZ vs SA ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 – Cricket Predictions Tips For Today’s World Cup New Zealand vs South Africa at Edgbaston, Birmingham: With pacer Lungi Ngidi back in the side, South Africa will look to avenge their 2015 semifinal defeat while New Zealand will aim to reclaim their position at the top when the two sides clash in a World Cup match on Wednesday. South Africa, who suffered a heartbreaking loss to New Zealand in the last edition, had a dismal start to their World Cup campaign, losing three straight games followed by a wash-out before registering their maiden win against bottom-placed Afghanistan.
In contrast, New Zealand are yet to face defeat in the tournament and are lying second on the table with three wins and a washout. Injuries to pacers Dale Steyn and Anrich Norje have hurt the South African bowling unit severely. With Ngidi fully fit and the team finally tasting victory, skipper Faf du Plessis will breathe a sigh of relief.
