South Africa Preview
The South African batting department definitely struggled against the quality bowling line-up pf New Zeland in the first match as Hashim Amla only managed to cross the fifty mark stand and the protea only managed to post 263 runs.
Although, Dale Steyn fired and gave Nez Zealand the taste of Steyn gun as he sent both openers Latham and Guptill back to the pavilion. But later, rain interrupted and match finally ended in the draw.
South African hugely missed De Villiers who will miss this series due to injury. Du Plessis will captain South Africa, and he needs to fire. Although, Du Plessis has been out of form since CPL and eyes will be on him.
Hashim Amla is the key player for this team along with Dean Elgan, JP Duminy, and Quinton De Kock in the batting unit. The bowling unit of this team relies heavily on the duo of Steyn and Philander. Also, young fast bowler Kagiso Rabada is the another gun in the South Africa bowling department.
South Africa really need to stand out, especially their batsman, if they want to improve their performance in the second Test match.
SOUTH AFRICA SQUAD
Stephen Cook, Dean Elgar, Hashim Amla, Jean-Paul Duminy, Faf du Plessis(c), Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock(w), Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn, Dane Piedt, Kyle Abbott, Chris Morris, Wayne Parnell, Stiaan van Zyl
New Zeland Team Preview
The Kane Williamson led side has impressed everyone in the match test match especially the duo of Boult and Tim Southee. They not only contained the protease batsman, but they contained South African batsman on 263.
Although their openers soon were taken back by the Steyn-Gun and later Williamson and Taylor handle the fire of Steyn and Philander.
Meanwhile, the opener Tom Latham and Guptill need to give their team good start as Williamson will not always rescue them from the mouth of losses.
The middle order of this team relies heavily on Williamson, Taylor, and BJ Watling. And also, the all-rounders Mitchell Santner and Henry Nicholls need to contribute.
There is the great possibility that Mark Craig will return to this match as he only-only bowls well, but he is a genuine lower order batsman. Well, Williamson led side, just need to play the aggressive brand of cricket that their ex-captain McCullum taught them.
NEW ZEALAND SQUAD
Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling(w), Mitchell Santner, Doug Bracewell, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Trent Boult, Mark Craig, Matt Henry, Luke Ronchi, Jeet Raval, Ish Sodhi.
South Afric is favourite to win this match.
