New Zealand vs South Africa, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Live Updates

The New Zealand vs South Africa match will take place on 19 June, 2019.

Guptill and captain Kane Williamson were coping well with the Proteas' attack and had moved to 72 for one with the minimum of fuss after the early loss of Colin Munro.

De Grandhomme was caught at long-off trying to hit the first ball of the penultimate over for six but the unflappable Williamson took his side home, ending unbeaten on 106.

Should not be a problem for New Zealand but if South Africa manage to removed Kane Williamson, things could get little hard and interesting.

He was aided by Colin de Grandhomme's superb 60 off 47 balls after the Kiwis had slipped to 137-5.

New Zealand and South Africa, both were considered favourites for one of the semifinal spots in the tournament.

Proteas captain Faf du Plessis was clean-bowled by New Zealand paceman Lockie Ferguson for 23 on Wednesday. In contrast, New Zealand are yet to face defeat in the tournament and are lying second on the table with three wins and their match against India getting abandoned due to rain.

The way Colin Munro started, the chase looked a no-contest.

Ross Taylor, second ball, was strangled down the leg side by Chris Morris who nearly looked apologetic, then the South African quick produced a gem to nick off Tom Latham, angling across.

Martin Guptill (35) departed with Andile Phehlukwayo's wicket tumbling delivery.

During his innings, Amla became the fourth South African player to reach 8,000 runs in one-day internationals.

New Zealand bowled intelligently full lengths, with de Grandhomme hustling through 10 overs of honest medium-pace for just 33.

South Africa's 241-6 was under par, but not as much as it appeared on a pitch described as "sticky" by their topscorer Rassie van der Dussen (67 not out off 64). Disappointing performance by South Africa as they have been poor thus far in the field. Matt Henry and Trent Boult have been good for the team with the ball.

South Africa: De Kock (WK), Amla, Markram, Du Plessis (C), Dussen, Miller, Phehlukwayo, Morris, Ngidi, Rabada and Tahir. They were then given a run for their money by Bangladesh in the next game but still succeeded in winning the game by two wickets.
