New Zealand vs South Africa 3rd ODI

The 3rd match of this series is also going to come in view of let’s wait and see what will happen. We also know that in the 2nd ODI NZ team got a dramatic winning and and that’s why it’s helpful for them in this series against the champion teams

Match Result

As we all know that prediction of weather was full rainy that’s why match has been abandoned. So in view of this we got no result of this match


New Zealand is the host team and South Africa has come to play in New Zealand. New Zealand has so got spectators support also but in fact of all this, South Africa has won the last match by 72 runs. Reason was that South Africa gave the huge target while batting first. New Zealand could win the match even then but Bowlers of South Africa did perform well and won the match easily. So in this New Zealand vs South Africa 3rd ODI  Will be played and let’s see that in this 3rd ODI who get the support of spectators.

Weather Report

The playing condition of this match are very bad and very less chances to have this match happen as we came to know after this report that there will be Moderate or heavy rain in area with thunder. So this time batsman have chances to give their best and bowlers will not be able to cover the pitch due to wetness and ball will slip away from their hand.

Pitch Report

Today’s New Zealand vs South Africa 3rd ODI is going to be held in the ground of Seddon Park, New Zealand. So let’s have a bit discussion about this ground that what happened in the past of ground so that we can predict about the situations.

  • The teams won 8 matches batting first in this ground
  • Now discuss that what is ratio so the teams won 13 matches bowling first in this ground.
  • Highest scores in this ground are 363 by West Indies team against New Zealand at 8th Jan 2014.
  • Successfully chased highest scores in this ground are 350 by New Zealand against Australia at 20th Feb 2007.
  • New Zealand vs South Africa Head to Head stats Total matches played between them are 64. New Zealand team won just 20 matches but the South Africa team won 36 and remaining 8 matches are drawn/abandoned.


As per our prediction and this ground stats in pitch report New Zealand have more chances of winning according to their condition and records in this ground . But also the team who will bowl first will have more chances of winning. According to weather report both teams have 50% chances because even good players will not be able to show their capabilities.

New Zealand team

Team of New Zealand has good all rounders, expert batsmen and experienced bowlers. New Zealand has best bowling side specially for fast cricket. Fast cricket means today’s cricket containing ODI and T20’s. In fast cricket, one needs to score as much as possible in specified overs. New Zealand in this box is suitable for all these qualities.

New Zeland  has hard hitters in batting side. Starting from the openers till the bowlers, all players have physical stamina, good physique. These batsmen are hard hitters. Hard hitters means they used to play big shots for boundaries to get fours and sixes. Brendon McCullum is the wicket keeper and good batsman as well. He did fastest century as well. He usually plays at the opening position. Brendon McCullum  can play every type of cricket like he can play steady whenever partnership is required, he can play fast if it needs to finish the match So in this New Zealand vs South Africa 3rd ODI he should also have to perform his best for his team. Jesse Ryder is the one of the best opener and hard hitter. New Zealand strategy is that in opening, batsman on one side just save the wicket but batsman on other side goes for long shots.

Jesse Ryder hit big shots at the start of the match. This act increases the confidence level  of overall team. Middle order players don’t find too much pressure as openers has already made the base. Specially in T20, contribution of only 1 or maximum 2 players is needed to win the match but in ODI, all team have to give its efforts. Coming to Bowling Side, Kyle Mills is most experienced bowler. For bowlers, strength, stamina, height, fitness is essentially required. His height favors him a lot. He always performed well.  He did prove himself very useful for the team.

South Africa team

South Africa team has not won any remarkable cup in their history like World Cup. The reason is that they have the talent, no doubt, but while playing pressurized matches, they usually don’t make to upper level. South Africa has famous players. Batting side really amazing.

Ab De Villiers is the best batsman of the present cricket. I’ll rate him as the best because his tricks and style is really UN chase-able by anyone. He can play all the three type of matches. DeVilliers has so much level of confidence that even before the bowler bowl the ball, he can predict the position of the ball. Another good all-rounder and mature batsman is J.P Duminy. J.P Duminy usually comes at 5th position but he can lead the match till the end and they will have to support in New Zealand vs South Africa 3rd ODI match.

He know every type of game that how to play at that moment. He perform well for the team.  Coming to Bowlers, Africa has the best pacer of the present world and he is Dale Steyn. Pace of Dale Steyn is really unplayable. Besides this, Steyn has good length and appropriate line. Another interesting thing about Steyn is that he has lowest number of No Balls in his career. This indicates his perfection, devotion towards the cricket.

This match is going to be an interesting match but no exact words can be said about cricket. As South Africa has won the last matches so there are more chances of Africa to win this match because all players are in form. But we can’t ignore other side, New Zealand is the host and will try its best to win this match through proper coaching and good captaincy.
