Kimberley: Jan 22, 2013

South Africa won the toss and elected to field against New Zealand in the second ODI at Kimberley.

James Franklin batted skillfully with the tail to secure a tense one-wicket upset win for New Zealand in the first One-Day International against South Africa at Boland Park on Saturday.

Franklin hit 47 not out as the last three New Zealand wickets added 104 runs in a low-scoring match after South Africa had been bowled out for 208.

New Zealand took an unexpected 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series against South Africa and will hope to pull off another miracle on Tuesday to seal the series. As for South Africa, they need to pull up their socks and play to their potential to save the series.

South Africa will be without captain AB de Villiers as the skipper was suspended. Hashim Amla may also miss out due to leg injury giving opportunity to young Farhaan Beherdien and David Miller. Faf du Plessis is set to lead the side in de Villiers’s absence. New Zealand has brought in Colin Munro for Rob Nicol.
