Blackcaps tour to SA – T20 series preview

martinguptillWith New Zealand’s tour of South Africa about to kick off with a 3 match T20 series starting on Friday, I thought I’d share my thoughts on what I feel is to come.

I’m sure what I’m about to say will be very predictable, but I think SA will simply be too good for the blackcaps with both bat & ball, and even with NZ’s win over SAA, I still can’t see them causing too much trouble for SA.

In saying this however, if there is a time where NZ are to have any sort of chance of getting a victory this tour on SA soil, it will be in the T20 series.

SA are not yet a settled team in the limited overs format, and I expect Gary Kirsten to test a few things out in the T20’s ahead of the 1 dayers and that might leave NZ with an opening to snatch a victory on this tour.

My prediction:
SA to win the T20 series 3-0
