The 25th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between New Zealand and South Africa at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Wednesday, June 19.

South Africa will look to avenge their 2015 semifinal defeat while New Zealand will aim to reclaim their position at the top when the two sides clash in a World Cup match here on Wednesday.

South Africa have had the better of New Zealand in eight of 10 bilateral series but New Zealand have beaten South Africa five times out of seven in World Cups, including twice in knockout situations. In fact, South Africa have not won a World Cup match against New Zealand this millennium – that’s not once in the last four tournaments – but the time that they last did was at this ground.

The Proteas began the World Cup with three successive defeats, and despite picking up their first win, against Afghanistan last time out, they are in must-win mode to keep the ICC World Cup 2019 semifinals hopes alive.


New Zealand: Kane Williamson (c), Tom Latham (wk), Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult, Henry Nicholls, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Tom Blundell.

South Africa: Faf du Plessis (c), JP Duminy, David Miller, Dale Steyn, Andile Phehlukwayo, Imran Tahir, Kagiso Rabada, Dwaine Pretorius, Quinton de Kock (wk), Chris Morris, Lungi Ngidi, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Hashim Amla, Tabraiz Shamsi.
