New Zealand will take on South Africa in the twenty-fifth match of the World Cup at Edgbaston in Birmingham today (June 19), after winning three games with their fourth game against India being washed out. Today match is a must win match for South Africa as in case of New Zealand’s consecutive win, Pakistan’s chances for qualifying in semi-final will likely disappear.
For New Zealand, their bowling attack is a real force to be reckoned with. Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, James Neesham and Mitchell Santner have been very impressive in the tournament so far.
On the other hand, South Africa who has been plagued with injuries to their fast bowlers will be looking to bounce back after registering their first win of the tournament against Afghanistan. The match between New Zealand and South Africa will begin at 2:30pm Pakistan Standard Time.
New Zealand: Kane Williamson (C), Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Tom Blundell
South Africa: Faf du Plessis (C), Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, JP Duminy, Dwaine Pretorius, Beuran Hendricks, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi
