Today was the 25th match of cricket world cup 2019 that is finished at this moment. It was an interesting and worth-watching match between New Zealand and South Africa. For this match, we predicted that New Zealand was a powerful challenger. You can now see the results that we were right. What an impressive game presented by the team New Zealand. They won the game by 4 wickets.
South Africa won the toss and preferred to bat first and made 241/6. Martin Guptill walked on his bases to trigger a mini New Zealand breakdown. Guptill and Kane tried to cope well with the Proteas attacks and he moved to 72 for only one with minimum trouble. On 35, Martin pulled Phehlukwayo and finished up spinning only to lose the balance. After two overs, New Zealand slipped to 74-3 when Taylor enjoyed a delivery by Morris. Quinton grabbed the catch behind his stubs.
Latham was discharged for a single as kiwis collapsed to 80. They piled up the pressure on the skipper and batsman Williamson to move on and make a big score. Dussen gave South Africa a chance to bowl when Proteas fought to make 241 runs after losing the toss.
Amla played well and made 55 runs on 83 balls and Dussen's was not out at 67.
During his turn, Amla became the 4th player of South Africa to complete 8000 runs in the one-day internationals.
He is the 2nd fastest players to reach this landmark after the Captain of Indian team Virat Kohli. During the game, South Africa took in his fast bowler Ngidi to give a tough time to Hendricks.
After getting the 9 wickets success, Plessis's team was still suffering on the 8th spot. Now, after this match, they are going to face Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Australia.
