New Zealand vs South Africa: Toss delayed due to wet outfield

The toss of the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup match between New Zealand and South Africa has been delayed due to a wet outfield at Edgbaston, Birmingham.

Kane Williamson-led New Zealand is at the second position in ICC World Cup 2019 Points table while the Proteas are at the eight spot with three points in five matches.

After winning their maiden match against minnows Afghanistan, Faf du Plessis-led South Africa would look to gain some confidence as they face a formidable New Zealand, who are still unbeaten after their four matches, including a washout against india cricket team.

South Africa will look to avenge their 2015 semifinal defeat while New Zealand will aim to reclaim their position at the top. Considering the Proteas are playing their sixth match of the tournament, this could be a virtual knockout for the team if they lose.
