New Zealand are all set to take on South Africa in the seventh warm-up match of the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023. The encounter will take place at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday (October 2).
The Blackcaps emerged victorious by five wickets against Pakistan in their previous warm-up fixture, while South Africa‘s opening practice game against Afghanistan was abandoned due to rain.
New Zealand will look to carry the momentum and enter the tournament with confidence. On the other hand, South Africa will be determined to assess the Indian conditions before heading into official fixtures after a washout game.
ODI World Cup 2023, 7th Warm-up game:
- Date and Time: October 2; 2:00 pm local | 08:30 am GMT | 2:00 pm IST
- Venue: Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram
Greenfield International Stadium pitch report:
The Greenfield International Stadium track in Trivandrum is renowned for its support of bowlers, although batters can accumulate significant runs with some time at the crease. Additionally, as the game progresses, spinners are likely to become more influential. Therefore, the team winning the toss is likely to opt for batting first at this venue.
