The T20 series between the two teams will be played in New Zealand and consists of one T20o match. It will be a close encounter but since Kiwis are playing under the home conditions they are bound to have the upper hand. Trent Boult will be spearheading the incisive attack that can test even the best batsmen in the world.
The saffers would be up to the task what with Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel opening the bowling and they will be ably supported by kagiso Rabada who is the new super star for his country. Kiwis will try to take the attack to the opposition as they have small grounds and big hitters in the ranks. Once the likes of Williamson get going, they can quickly turn the game on its head and deliver knockout punch to the opposition.
One of the major factors that might decide the victor is the mental toughness of the team. Proteas with AB De Villiers at the helm seem to be a formidable unit capable of tearing the opposition bowling apart. He is a 360 degree player and can make the batting look ridiculously easy. Similarly as far as spin bowling is concerned, Duminy can play a useful role in the fortunes of the team. With his right arm bowling and left arm batting, he can not only take crucial wickets but make sure that useful runs are scored lower down the order to post huge total on the board.
Kiwis on their part should bowl in the right areas to take wickets of the opposition and not allow them to score runs freely, It is bound to go a long way in winning the series but the job is easier said than done since saffers have enough fire power in their arsenal to deliver the goods.
