  • NZ vs SA today match prediction

    NZ vs SA Today Match Prediction: New Zealand will host South Africa for a two match test series. South Africa are on a high after defeating the #1 test team in the world in India, they not only defeated them but demolished them in the 2 of the 3 tests which should place them in a happy space at the moment. They will be missing the services of Keegen Petersen who was magnificent against India and was the star of the series for South Africa with the bat. Anrich Nortje continues to rehabilitate and will miss this series as well.

    NZ vs SA Today Match Prediction

    New Zealand will not have their captain Kane Williamson who is struggling with his elbow injury for quite a long time now. Their left arm speedster Trent Boult will miss the game and Matt Henry replaces him in the squad. Tom Latham will continue to lead the side in the absence of Kane Williamson. New Zealand shockingly lost one test to Bangladesh which has massively dented their WTC chances and they would want to whitewash South Africa to stay afloat. They are the defending WTC champions and wouldn’t want to bow out of this cycle without even an appearance in the final.

    Today Match Score: Team batting first would look to post around 400 to be on the driver’s seat right away.

    Today Pitch Report: The wicket will have consistent bounce with lots of grass which should make the ball move around a lot for a larger part of the game. The spinners will have a tough time on this wicket with no assistance.
