So what are the experts saying?
Many cricket betting fans in the know suggest that Dale Steyn and Vernon Philanders bowling duo could be the reason South Africa has a chance at beating the new and improved Black Caps team. What could be a factor against them is that South Africa is used to hosting test series’ in October. For the first time they will be doing so in August lending to unfamiliar and possibly slower pitch conditions in both Durban and Centurion. New Zealand is currently 2 spots ahead of South Africa in the ICC Rankings, making the clash an altogether nail-biter.
Only time will tell.
