After winning their first match against England via the Duckworth Lewis method (D/L method), the Kiwis will be upbeat and hoping to register another victory in this encounter. On the other hand, South Africa will be hoping to bounce back from their five-run loss to Sri Lanka and register their first win of the tournament.


New Zealand have been in fine form in T20Is. Since England beat them last year in their own backyard, they haven’t lost a single series. However, in the unpredictable world of T20s, form book is thrown out of the window.


New Zealand have a fine blend of power-hitters and batsmen, who play with steady perfection. Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum and Ross Taylor would be expected to fire on all cylinders for New Zealand camp. Brendon in particular, has been in fabulous touch. Read the preview of the match here.
