NZ vs SA: South Africa will lock horns against New Zealand in Match 7 of ICC Cricket World Cup Warm-up Matches, 2023 on Monday, October 2, 2023, at Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram.
New Zealand launched their World Cup campaign in style by securing a five-wicket victory against Pakistan in their opening warm-up match. Pakistan, batting first, set a target of 345 runs. New Zealand, showing great form, successfully achieved this target in just 43.4 overs, and they intend to maintain their momentum.
On the other hand, South Africa’s first warm-up game against Afghanistan ended without any play due to rain. They are keen to seize this chance and adapt to the conditions effectively before embarking on their journey in the ICC World Cup 2023.
