South Africa in disarray - Black Caps too 'clinical' says their pundit

South Africa in disarray - Black Caps too 'clinical' says their pundit

It was Grant Elliot's famous "hit into the grandstand" in an enthralling climax which ended South Africa's World Cup campaign in 2015 and powered New Zealand to their first ever appearance at the finals. Their last match against India was washed out.

Ngidi will boost a pace attack that was handed a blow before the start of the tournament when Dale Steyn dropped out because of injury.

"It's just been frustrating not being able to play".

"I'm match fit at 100%".

South Africa's Quinton de Kock has rated 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) final as the most emotional moment of his career.

In their last match, South Africa finally managed to get a win under their belt after beating Afghanistan and now they would need to win the rest of the league stage matches in order to make the last four, and Ngidi feels New Zealand do have some weaknesses that could be exploited.

On paper, a match-up between New Zealand and South Africa is just the type of prospect that leaves those turning up at Edgbaston today hopeful of a cracker.

But the spirited New Zealanders made the revised target of 226 from 39 overs look ridiculous after rain had interrupted play thanks to Stephen Fleming's inspirational innings of 134 from 132 balls which contained 21 boundaries as the skipper shared an unbroken partnership of 140 with Nathan Astle (54).

What time does the match begin?

Four year on New Zealand maintained their winning run as they won a low-scoring Super Eights clash at the National Cricket Stadium in St George's, Grenada with Craig McMillan (3-23 and 38 not out) taking the man-of-the-match honours.

The story had another chapter in the 2011 World Cup with South Africa once again being firm favourites in the quarterfinals, but Daniel Vettori's BlackCaps pulled another miracle and reached the semifinals under dramatic circumstances.
