South Africa v New Zealand, Centurion After the loss in the first game, South Africans will be desperate for a win in today's game against New Zealand at the Centurion. The hosts were being termed as one of the favourites however they were beaten by Sri Lanka. South Africans will like to improve both their batting and bowling. South Africans need some quality in their back up bowling as there wasn't much after Steyn and Parnell. New Zealand is a team which can do anything on their day. They have shown some good form in the practice games however the real stuff stats today. If the Black Caps manage to deliver as a batting unit they are in with a pretty good chance as they have a fairly decent bowling attack which will test the South Africans. Ross Taylor will have to bat well and responsibly for the Kiwis while Shane Bond and Daniel Vettori holding the key with the ball. Overall, a close game is in prospect as both teams need a win with Proteas being more desperate as a loss can almost end their tournament and they start as slight favourites. Players to look out for Dale Steyn will be the main man for South Africa and the hosts will be looking at him to dent a vulnerable New Zealand batting line early. Steyn is fast and accurate which makes him a lethal proposition to deal with and the Black Caps will be on a look out for him. If Proteas have Steyn the Black Caps have Bond. Shane Bond has returned to bolster the Kiwi bowling line and will relish the bouncy Centurion wicket. Bond has got everything from pace to hostility to trouble the Proteas so look out Bond is here. Head to head & Conditions South Africa enjoys a better record in the games between the two sides with 29 wins out of 50 games. In recent overall matches South Africa have won three out of their last five, while New Zealand have won only one out of their last five ODI games. Conditions will be equally favourable for batting and bowling with good bounce in the wicket. Win the toss and bat first will be the way forward. Expected line-ups South Africa: Smith, Gibbs, Kallis, de Villiers, Duminy, Boucher, Morkel, Botha, van der Merwe, Steyn, Parnell. New Zealand: McCullum, Ryder, Guptill, Taylor, Elliot, Oram, Broom, Vettori, Butler, Bond, Tuffey.
