Faf du Plessis - The backbone of the Proteas batting

The seventh ranked team in the ICC ODI Championship, New Zealand, with a rating of 98, will collide with the no.3 squad, South Africa. Both countries have played 58 matches, the Proteas have an edge by winning 34, the Kiwis lost 20 and four of them finished without any result.

The visitors have recently beaten the Lankan Lions 2-1 in Sri Lanka, won against the hosts Zimbabwe 2-0 and lifted Zimbabwe Triangular Series, 2014, trophy after defeating Australia by six wickets in the final.

New Zealand crushed the full blooded Indian side 4-0 in the five match home series in January, 2014, under the leadership of Brendon McCullum. Earlier, the ODI series against West Indies ended in a 2-2 draw at home so the Kiwis are in high spirit and the forthcoming three matches will be packed with thrill.

Players to watch

The hosts will miss the services of their star players, Ross Taylor and Adam Milne, since both of them are facing injuries while Kane Williamson is set to miss the first game because of a wrist problem. Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum, Corey Anderson, Jesse Ryder. Jimmy Neesham and Luke Ronchi will look after their batting whereas the bowling department will be covered by Kyle Mills, Tim Southee, Mitchell McClenaghan and Nathan McCullum.

The formidable batting line up of South Africa will be guarded by AB de Villiers, Jean-Paul Duminy, Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis and David Miller. Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Vernon Philander, Wayne Parnell and Imran Tahir have the ability to demolish the rival batting.

Time & Venue

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 @ 21:30 GMT, 10:30 local at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui. The venue was inaugurated in 2007, has the capacity of 10,000 and the first International match was played on January 28, 2014, between Canada and Netherlands which was won by the latter by eight wickets. The Kiwis will play their first ever international game there against the visiting Proteas.


Partly cloudy but cold weather with the temperatures around 11-18ᵒC.


The winning captain will prefer to set a hefty target to be defended.

The Pitch

The surface is going to be more beneficial for the pace bowlers in the early overs of the game and batsmen can find it easy going later on.


Expected New Zealand squad – Brendon McCullum, Martin Guptill, Jesse Ryder, Corey Anderson, BJ Watling, Tom Latham, Jimmy Neesham, Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi, Nathan McCullum, Tim Southee, Kyle Mills, Mitchell McClenaghan, Matt Henry,

South Africa – AB de Villiers (C), Hashim Amla, Kyle Abbott, Quinton de Kock, Jean-Paul Duminy, Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, Ryan McLaren, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Wayne Parnell, Aaron Phangiso, Vernon Philander, Rilee Rossouw, Dale Steyn.


Keeping in view the injury problems to the key players of the home side, the Proteas will be the most likely winners.

  1. With some key players injured SA seems clear favourite here.Rest on Munna Bhai's Analysis and predictions.

    • If SA were so clear winner odds would have been less than 1.1. Expect some fight from NZ, they are not going to get SA take away match at their own home ground. They are good bowling and fielding unit with few top world class batsmen. They have honed their skills and adapted well in T20. Kiwis might snatch at least one match from the jaws of SA lions so be prepared to take at least one hit. More than one hit would be difficult as SA are preparing for World Cup and they don't want to be ashamed of going into the championship as a team which was recently defeated by NZ. A team consisting of bowlers like Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Wayne Parnell and Vernon Philander will never lose a series no matter which ground they play. That was bowling unit. Now look at their batting line up AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, Jean-Paul Duminy, Faf du Plessis and David Miller. This is half of the team and most of them are freak. SA team is full with half world class batsmen and rest bottom half with top bowlers. Do you see any loophole which NZ might exploit to defeat them? I see none. The only way NZ can gain upper hand would be praying that SA's batting and bowling fails or some of their own players go berserk otherwise NZ has no chance whatsoever to defeat SA world cup favourite team. I'll stick to SA as my favourite team to win WorldCup till the end followed by Kangaroos and at 3rd place are our men in Blue.

  2. No analysis required, it looks like to be one sided match. SA will win. NZ are not the team who are known to win ODI matches easily. They work hard to get close to the winning line but always stumble at the end. India's 4-0 humiliation was once a lifetime wonder and it doesn't happen every year.
    Keep backing SA at higher odds at the end of series you will make profit.

    • Well Bhai i seldom place before the start of match and that too this early but have already backed SA for 50% of the amount i have kept for placing on the match at 1.56.I dont think odds will go more than this if SA bats first and more than 2-2.2 if NZ bats first.

    • Munna bhai Betfair wale id proof mang rahae hai kya karu.
      Or ye Lay kya hota hai bhai samjhao na

      • Bina proof ke to kuch nahi hoga. Passport banwa lo tatkal scheme me. DL se kaam nahi chalega aur PAN chalta nahi hai foreign countries me.

    • Thanks munna bayya

  3. Tas vs nsw match predtion

    • Munna Bhai....full back kar diya Hai SA ko ......Nz bas shuru se hi fail ho jaye

      • If NZ bats first and scores good runs then you will be sweating till last. What you did is gambling not trading. You should have waited for the toss. If SA bats first then back with 50% and keep 50% just in case wickets fall in beginning.

        • OK,

        • Rightly said Bhai....i should have kept 50% or 2/3 rd of the stake.Still carrying that bad habit and thinking of bet365.

  4. Tas Vs Nsw Match Winner:Tas

  5. my prdection southafrica is win this game its a one sidded game 100% southafrica will win this game

    • NZ at home is not a 3rd class team. Don't forget what they did to India last time. Don't underestimate them. It's not going to be 100% one sided at all. NZ will fight till end. Brendon McCullum jam gaya to maar lega akele woh SA ki. The biggest problem with NZ is that they play good but fail to cross finish line. We have seen this throughout the history. Then need some special push a kind of morale boosting triumph to take them to the next level. Something similar to what our team achieved in 1983. Before 1983 Indian team was at same level as NZ is now. What happened to India after 1983 is history, we all know it.
      I think NZ is knocking at the door of top 4 club and sooner than later they might gain entry into this elite group.

  6. Nz will win the match guys....

  7. munna bhai southafrica vs nzw 1 odi predection plz

    • Uper diya to prediction bhai. SA per lagao puri series me.

  8. bhai aus vs pak 1 test ka bhi batana

  9. nwz will win the series 3-0

  10. Should be NZ. Though they miss 2 important players. But bowling department looks like strong. In there ground.

    • Kyon SA ki bowling ko jung laga hai kya? Seam friendly pitch per agar NZ strong hai to usi pitch per SA bowlers maar lenge NZ walon ki. SA, England, NZ and Australia's bowling on seam friendly pitch are more or less at same level so the stronger team wins most of the time it's simple equation. If a subcontinent team is involved on such pitches then they lose always it's another simple fact backed by historical records. Same goes to sub continent pitches. Spin rules here and strong team with spin department rules. When was last time NZ defeated SA in an ODI series?

  11. match kon jitey ga?

  12. muna bhai ap ki skype id ha kya yar me ne site par betting karni ha thori information chahiey pls.

    • meri jaan yahin per puch lo sharma kyon rahe ho. Baki logon ka bhi kuch bhala ho jayega. Akele akele profit marne ka irada hai kya?

  13. nahi bhai me pak se ho or kisi site par diposit karna chahta ho pls bhai help me?

    • Bolo kaun si site hai aur problem ky aho rehi hai?

  14. Prediction came true exactly as I predicted. NZ lost but not without a fight. Some early setbacks for SA but they manage to chase it successfully.

    • You are great @Munna vai

  15. spot on bhai
