South Africa vs New Zealand 1st T20 Predictions Who Will Win 14th Aug 2015
South Africa vs New Zealand 1st T20 will be played on August 14th , this will be the first match in the series. New Zealand recently played ODI games against the Zimbabwe where they did really well. So they are probably hoping to have the same repeat performance in South Africa too. South Africa on the other hand is absolutely devastated after their ODI series loss in the hands of Bangladesh. They never thought that they will lose that series. The defeat was shocking for both the teams and their supporters. New Zealand team management told repeatedly that they are not taking South Africa lightly because of their loss in Bangladesh. But the truth is that, it will definitely create some effect on them as Bangladesh is not among the best ODI international teams in the world. South Africa on the other hand was counted among the top 3 ODI international teams in the world. No one ever thought that a team like Bangladesh who are still very new at the international cricket will be able to beat South Africa in ODI series like that. But sometimes truth is stranger than fiction; it is a fact now that SA lost the ODI series against Bangladesh.
Many former South African players blamed the fatigue behind the devastating loss. Others thought that the South African team looked completely unmotivated. A general feeling was that the South African players were might be under the impression that beating Bangladesh would be no hard work. This attitude obviously did not go too well with the South African team selectors and that is why they have made a number of changes in both ODI and T20 squads. Some of the players were called back and some players lost their place in the team. South African team management know that they need to win the South Africa vs New Zealand 1st T20 otherwise it will even harder to stop people from criticizing their team constantly. It is weird to think that even couple of months ago South African ODI squad was considered better than the NZ team. But now everything is changed, the way New Zealand team played against the Zimbabwe is simply amazing. They are looking like an unbeatable team now. One of the main reasons behind the success of their team is their incredible batting line up.
New Zealand openers Martin Guptill and Tom Latham is the best opening duo in the world now. In almost every match New Zealand is playing these days, their openers are taking away the game from the opposition in 15 over, not a single bowler is able to give them any kind of trouble, Even New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson said that his team is now used to the fact that openers will give the team a great start, it does not matter if they are batting first or chasing the target. These two openers are the biggest asset of current New Zealand ODI team.
If South Africa is planning to win the South Africa vs New Zealand 1st T20 then they have to make sure that these two NZ openers are back to the pavilion before they gets settled. This is the only way they can stop the NZ team from scoring huge total. Good news for SA team is that Ross Taylor is not playing in this series. So without him the NZ batting line up is little less strong. Faf du Plessis is going to be the T20 captain for South Africa and with AB de Villiers back in the team SA will be looking for a fresh start in this series.
