New Zealand opts to bat against South Africa

The 32nd match of the World Cup 2023 will be played between New Zealand and South Africa on Wednesday. The New Zealand team has suffered a big setback before the high voltage match to be held at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the 2023 World Cup match against South Africa due to injury. This match is very important for New Zealand to reach the semi-finals of the tournament. The Kiwi team may be in trouble due to Kane Williamson’s dismissal.

Regular captain Kane Williamson will also not play against South Africa, the New Zealand Cricket Board said in a post on Twitter. Kane Williamson is out of the match against South Africa. Williamson was batting strongly in the nets for two days, but now he has suddenly been dropped.

This match will be played against Pakistan.

Kane Williamson has batted a lot in the nets for the last two days, but he has not been able to make a place in the team against South Africa. “His availability will be re-evaluated before the next match against Pakistan,” New Zealand Cricket said in a statement. Kane Williamson has played only one match in the World Cup so far.

India won this match by 78 runs.

Kane Williamson suffered a knee injury during IPL 2023. After that, he returned midway through the 2023 World Cup. He played against Bangladesh on 13 October in the World Cup. He was scoring 78 runs in this match, but in the meantime the ball hit his thumb. Since then he is out of the team.
