New Zealand v South Africa, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup

New Zealand v South Africa, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup

In the next match of ICC world cup 2019 South Africa coming from a victory against Afghanistan will take on New Zealand who is yet to lose a match in the tournament.

New Zealand's fourth win in five moves them onto nine points, one clear of England and Australia, and leaves South Africa in eighth with three points from six matches - the Proteas are unlikely to make the top four even if they defeat Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia in their final three group games. He was tidy behind the stumps on a hard Edgbaston wicket, but needs to get the wax removed from his ears after he didn't pick up Kane Williamson's nick off the last ball of Imran Tahir's spell.

The skipper's maiden World Cup century was of huge importance, and ended up being superbly timed, as Williamson weighed up the conditions, bowlers and situation in order to expertly guide the Black Caps home with three balls to spare.

Markram was caught by Colin Munro off Colin de Grandhomme for 38 and South Africa had reached 166-4 at the end of the 39th over, with the Proteas in dire need of increasing their run-rate if they were to set New Zealand a challenging total.

Gamechanger: Kane Williamson's fantastic knock of 106 was truly the difference between the two sides.

"It's been tough. Injuries are never nice, but with the support staff that I've had around me it's been pretty good and I've been alright", Ngidi was quoted as saying by the official website of the Cricket World Cup.

The run-chase didn't start on a great note for the Kiwis as Kagiso Rabada removed Colin Munro in the second over.

Speaking after the match, a visibly gutted Du Plessis said it was not fair to pinpoint that as the moment the game was lost for South Africa. Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis tried to put their heads down and added 50 for the second wicket.

Williamson and Martin Guptill struggled for early timing but set a solid platform, before New Zealand lost 3-8 in a freakish 20 balls and it was game on at 80-4.

Jimmy Neesham (23) steadied the ship with his skipper but when he was out, New Zealand were back in trouble. The match was reduced to 49-a-side over affair after wet ground outfield delayed the start. With prediction of rain throughout the duration of the game, we are unlikely to see much cricketing action.

Fast bowler Lockie Ferguson took 3-59 in South Africa's innings of 241-6.

Ross Taylor has been the most successful New Zealand batsman in the ICCWorld Cup 2019 with 130 runs from just two innings.
