South Africa look to break the jinx
For Blackcaps the story has been so far, so good. With an eye on the semi-finalists spot, they would take on South Africa who have had a tumultuous journey so far. They have won three of their games against Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Bangladesh and their last game against India was washed out due to rain.
South Africa have garnered their solitary win against Afghanistan but they would hope to make it two when they meet New Zealand. They would hope to leave the history behind as they have never beaten their counterparts in last twenty years.
