The first World Cup semi-final sees New Zealand taking on South Africa today in what shapes as a mouth-watering contest between two of the tournament favorites. Neither of these sides have won the World Cup before so there is plenty at stake.
South Africa head into this match as slight favorites but we love the look of this New Zealand side, who also boast the advantage of playing at home. Their well-balanced squad has scored a mountain of runs so far and remain undefeated – unlike South Africa who lost to both India and Pakistan in the group stage. And of course they have a history of mental collapse when the pressure is on. New Zealand to win.
