New Zealand vs South Africa 7th Match Prediction, Probable 11, Pitch and Weather Report: ICC Cricket World Cup Warm-Up Matches

The seventh warm-up match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will see New Zealand take on South Africa. The Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram will be hosting this encounter on Monday (October 2).

New Zealand had a perfect start to their preparations for the World Cup 2023. They convincingly beat Pakistan by five wickets in their warm-up fixture on Friday. After being asked to bowl first, the Kiwis struggled to keep a check on the scoring rate as Pakistan posted 345 on the board. Mitchell Santner registered figures of 2/39 for New Zealand. In reply, the fifties from Rachin Ravindra (97), Kane Williamson (54), Daryl Mitchell (59), and Mark Chapman (65*) helped them ace the chase in the 44th over.

South Africa, on the other hand, had no chance of taking the field as their warm-up fixture against Afghanistan at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram was washed out due to rain. Temba Bavuma has returned to the South African side but will miss the warm-up fixture against New Zealand. Aiden Markram will be leading the side in Bavuma’s absence and the Proteas will be hoping to get some game time on Monday ahead of the World Cup 2023.

NZ vs SA Pitch Report:

As batsmen are expected to struggle, the Greenfield International Stadium pitch favors bowlers. The fifth warm-up game versus Netherlands at this location saw Mitchell Starc score a hat-trick. Rain has ruined this venue’s two warm-up matches, and the weather report suggests it will today.

NZ vs SA Playing 11:

New Zealand (Probable XI):  Will Young, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (c & wk), Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Mark Chapman, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson

South Africa (Probable XI): Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram (c), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Andile Phehlukwayo / Gerald Coetzee, Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, Kagiso Rabada / Lizaad Williams, Tabraiz Shamsi

Probable Best Batter:

Aiden Markram (South Africa): 

This is the year that the South African vice-captain has scored both of his century in one-day internationals. Markram scored 225 runs in five games for South Africa in their recent home series against Australia, averaging 56.25 with a strike rate of 115.98.

Probable Best Bowler:

Trent Boult (New Zealand):

After a year away from international cricket, the left-arm seamer has returned with a bang, taking 10 wickets in five matches at an average of 15.80. However, he may get some overs with the new ball against South Africa after being rested for the first warm-up game against Pakistan.

My Prediction: South Africa to Win the Match.
