NZ vs RSA Match Prediction & Analysis

There is a lot of history between New Zealand and South Africa when it comes to world cup matches. New Zealand broke South Africa’s dreams of winning the World Cup 2015 when they managed to pull off one of the most incredible chases ever seen in a cricket world cup.

South African cricket seemed to be forever shaken after that loss.

Now, four years later, South Africa is going to face New Zealand again with roles slightly reversed. South Africa has lost three out of the four completed matches in ICC World Cup 2019 while New Zealand is unbeaten.

The path for the semi-final looks very tough for South Africa but they have to win every single match. New Zealand has a lot bigger margin of error, although, it is by no means guaranteed of a semi-final spot just yet.

Injuries have forced South Africa to alter its bowling strategy for this World Cup and its batting is struggling as well. New Zealand has no major concerns and is going to into this match as the clear favorite.

New Zealand vs South Africa ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham on the 19th of June 2019.

Team Previews

New Zealand

Three victories in three matches and a rained-out match against India is the perfect start for New Zealand. It is in second place on the ICC World Cup 2019 points table and is in a very good position to press for a semi-final berth.

Looking a bit closer, though, reveals that New Zealand has a lot of work still left to do.

New Zealand’s wins have come against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. Apart from Bangladesh, the other two teams are not the strongest opponents in this edition of the tournament. New Zealand’s toughest challenges still lie ahead.

The real force for New Zealand so far has been its bowling attack. Bowlers like Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, and even Colin de Grandhomme have been very impressive.

This attack will be hopeful of taking advantage of a South African batting lineup struggling for form.

We believe that Trent Boult is going to be very important for South Africa against the opening pair of Amla and de Kock. If he can knock the pair over quickly then South Africa’s middle order can definitely be tested.

New Zealand also has a very good batting lineup. Martin Guptill is in excellent form and is scoring runs at a very good strike rate. Ross Taylor, Kane Williamson, and Colin Munro have all scored more than a hundred runs already.

With Tom Latham and the two all-rounders in the middle, New Zealand is a formidable team.

The only major weakness that we see with this New Zealand team is the likelihood of losing early wickets during their attack on the bowling in the first powerplay. Losing Williamson and Taylor is almost a certain death sentence for this side and that is what they must guard against.

New Zealand also struggled against the Indian wrist-spinners recently and Imran Tahir could pose a similar set of questions to them.

South Africa

It is stunning to see the speed at which South Africa’s ICC World Cup 2019 campaigns seems to be disintegrating. Even their win against Afghanistan was not as emphatic as we would have expected it to be.

Now, after a rained out match against the West Indies and an easy encounter against Afghanistan, South Africa needs to be switched on. There is no more room for error and they must find a way to win against New Zealand.

It is not going to be easy. Forget the fact that South Africa has not done well in must-win matches in the past, injuries to their leading fast bowlers have put them in a difficult place. We are not sure if Lungi Ngidi is going to be available for this match but the likelihood of him missing out is more.

South Africa’s senior players must step up and take responsibility. Hashim Amla has been making the same mistakes over and over, which for a player of his class and experience is just inexcusable. Quinton de Kock needs to start converting his fifties into centuries and Faf du Plessis must accept the fact that he is South Africa’s best batsman.

Aiden Markram continues to underperform and David Millers looks very short on confidence.

The South Africans have no option but to fight and maybe this clarity of purpose will help them find their way.

The South African bowling attack is not great. Imran Tahir and Kagiso Rabada are very good but Chris Morris, Beuran Hendricks, and Andile Phehlukwayo are a little bit inconsistent. Aiden Markram can be expected to bowl a couple of overs as well to help South Africa get through the bowling stint.

The pitch at Edgbaston is usually excellent for batting and picking wickets is going to be paramount. Rabada and Tahir need to win this match for their side.

Overall, the South African team has a lot of talent and we think they are bound to see an upswing sooner rather than later.

NZ vs RSA Toss Prediction

The team winning the toss is likely to want to bat first. The overcast weather has not really helped swing that much and the sun is expected to stay out as the day progresses.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

New Zealand vs South Africa ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham. The weather is expected to be a bit cloudy to start off but then clears as the day progresses. Considering the bad weather we have had in this tournament, a delayed start is not very bad news.

The pitch in Edgbaston is very good for batting. We expect this match to be high-scoring and a lot of runs to be scored. Teams have tended to overestimate the amount of help they will get under overcast conditions so far so both South Africa and New Zealand will be wary about choosing to bat second in this match.

NZ vs RSA Dream11 Prediction

Our Dream11team for New Zealand vs South Africa ICC World Cup 2019 has more South African players than New Zealand ones. This is because we believe South Africa has a good chance of winning this match. Of course, the weather and pitch conditions have a big say in the final Dream11 team selection. Follow us on twitter (@cricketbettings) or join our facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ocb.net/) to get the latest updates and join in the conversation.

WIcketkeeper: Quinton de Kock has been South Africa's best batsman in the ICC World Cup 2019 and picking him is an easy choice. Tom Latham is also a very good player but his position in the middle order means that he gets fewer chances than some of the other players.

Batsmen: We think this is going to be a high-scoring match and both teams should get plenty of runs. Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson are the two best players in the New Zealand side. They are consistent, can score big runs, and very comfortable against spin. Faf du Plessis and Rassie van der Dussen are the two batsmen we have picked from the South African team. A number of other options like Amla, Miller, and Markram are available but their current form is just too poor to be considered.

All-rounders: Andile Phehlukwayo and Chris Morris have been contributing for South Africa regularly in both aspects of the game. They are going to be required to bowl their full quota of overs and the South African batting weakness means they might get a chance to bat as well.

Bowlers: Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson have been very good with the ball and are picking up wickets regularly. Henry starts with the new ball while Ferguson takes charge during the end overs. Kagiso Rabada and Beuran Hendricks are the other two bowlers we have picked for our Dream11 team. Leaving Imran Tahir is a big decision and we may include him after the toss if South Africa bat's first.

Captain and vice-captain: We have picked Faf du Plessis as the captain and Kane Williamson as the vice-captain for this match.

NZ vs RSA Betting Tips

Both South Africa and New Zealand are pretty closely matched. New Zealand is in better form but it still has to play its toughest opponents. South Africa is in a must-win situation which will help it play fearlessly. They have a long batting lineup, quality all-rounders, and two of the best bowlers in the world. We think there is a great case to be made for betting on South Africa in this match.

Bet on South Africa to win.
