Kiwis would be touring South Africa in the august month of 2016 to play 2 matches test series from 19th to 31st August. The series is bound to captivate the imagination of audiences as both teams are highly competitive in nature. Trent Boult would be spearheading the bowling attack of New Zealand. Visiting bowlers are difficult to get away with because of the variety in their attack. Tim Southee along with Corey Anderson can prove to be handful on the seaming pitch for any opposition batting line up.
It is a well known fact that South Africans would be relying on Quinton De cock and Amla to provide a solid start. They can lay the starting foundation with De Villiers and FAF to come and accelerate the scoring rate during the middle of the innings. New Zealand captain Ken Williamson is one of the most prolific run scorers of his team. He can turn the match on its head single handedly; therefore South Africans would be looking to take his wicket early on to deny the advantage to the visitors.
Teams have good quality fielders in their ranks, therefore the series would be hard fought and players would be performing to their optimum limit in order to deliver impeccable performance. South African pace battery will be out to test the mettle of the kiwi batsmen. The visitors would have to be vigilant against the likes of Morne Morkel and Rabada because they can create problems for the opposition batsmen.
New Zealand toured South Africa in 2013 when they were beaten comprehensively by 2-0. The kiwi team would be hoping to deliver improved performance and register win in the test series. It will be baptism by fire for the visitors and they would have to use their skills to get the required results.
