Preview

On October 2, at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram, New Zealand will play South Africa in a NZ vs SA pre-ICC Cricket World Cup match. South Africa and New Zealand have both performed admirably in their last three matches, winning all three. Cricket between these two teams would be a nice match.

In their previous match, Pakistan had faced off against New Zealand and had chosen to bat after winning the toss. Pakistan got out to a slow start, losing both of its openers for cheap, but the subsequent batters’ solid batting displays helped them score 345 runs to win the game. With such a large chase, New Zealand did not retreat and made a good start. The pursuit appeared to be a meager total when several hitters reached their fifties. With more than six overs remaining, they easily defeated the opposition by five wickets.

Australia and South Africa had previously faced off, with Australia choosing to bowl after winning the toss. Being given the opportunity to bat, the Africans took their time and advanced cautiously, but as soon as Aiden Markram and David Miller linked hands, the scoring exploded. They scored a respectable 315 runs thanks to an outstanding finish from Marco Jansen and Andile Phehlukwayo. Apart from Marsh and Marnus, no one else contributed to Australia’s aggressive start to the chase despite a strong partnership for the third wicket. They were bowled out for 193, which caused them to lose the game by 122 runs.
