In Pune on Wednesday, Match 32 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup plays New Zealand vs South Africa. Despite having a great start to the season, the Black Caps have lost their past two games to Australia by 5 runs and India by 4 wickets with 12 balls remaining. After losing unexpectedly to the Netherlands in Match 15, South Africa went on to defeat England by 229 runs, Bangladesh by 149 runs, and Pakistan by 1 wicket on Friday. Continue reading for a preview of this game. The battle between day and night starts at 14:00 local time in Pune.

The tournament schedule always guaranteed that New Zealand would face a run of more difficult games as the group stage came to a close. They did, however, come dangerously near to defeating Australia in the previous game, so we anticipate that they will give South Africa a tough game.

Many analysts still rank South Africa as one of the best teams in the competition, and many believe they will win it all. They have demonstrated the ability to defeat inferior teams, but in their most recent game against Pakistan, they also displayed character. In this match, we anticipate them to be extremely difficult to defeat once more.

Pitch Report:

With just 371 runs scored overall, we witnessed 20 wickets fall during Saturday’s encounter between Bangladesh and the Netherlands at Eden Gardens. However, that would not accurately reflect the quality of the batting surface, and we anticipate a par score of 310–315.
