NZ v SA 4th ODI, Hamilton – Preview

Nz v SA Preview

Preview: New Zealand will try to level the 5-match One-Day International series against South Africa, and it has been boosted by the return of Martin Guptill and Jeetan Patel for the fourth game at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Wednesday (March 1).

Guptill, out of action with a hamstring injury since the first ODI against Australia late last month, has recovered and is expected to replace Tom Latham. Latham has struggled, scoring 0, 2 and 0 in the three games so far, the last in a big 159-run South Africa victory that took it 2-1 ahead in the series.

If Latham, who kept wicket in the first three games, goes out, Luke Ronchi is likely to return to his usual position on the field.


New Zealand: Kane Williamson (capt), Trent Boult, Neil Broom, Dean Brownlie, Lockie Ferguson, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, James Neesham, Jeetan Patel, Luke Ronchi, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor.

South Africa: AB de Villiers (capt), Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock (wk), JP Duminy, David Miller, Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, Chris Morris, Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dane Paterson, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi.
