World Cup 2019: New Zealand Vs South Africa


MATCH DETAILS

New Zealand vs South Africa, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Match 25
June 19, 2019, 03:00 PM IST
Edgbaston, Birmingham

VENUE: Edgbaston, Birmingham

DETAILS

Out of 51 completed ODIs, 24 were won by the team, batting first. In the last five One-Dayers at the venue, the average score was 295. Even as a couple of matches were won by the chasing teams, the team batting first also got over the line in two matches. However, both teams have won thus far batting second and they may want to field first after winning the toss.

PREVIEW

South Africa, who registered their first win of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup by defeating Afghanistan by nine wickets, will face a much stiffer challenge when they take on New Zealand at Edgbaston on Wednesday.

New Zealand is the only team, that hasn’t lost a match thus far in the 2019 edition of the World Cup. But the Kiwis haven’t played cricket over the last 10 days as their last match against India at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham got washed off due to rain.

It is stunning to see the speed at which South Africa’s ICC World Cup 2019 campaigns seems to be disintegrating. Even their win against Afghanistan was not as emphatic as we would have expected it to be. The good news coming for the team is Lungi Ngidi is fit.
