South Africa is taking on New Zealand in first semi-final of Cricket World Cup 2015 tomorrow on 24th March. Both teams are well prepared for the much anticipated encounter and a nail biting contest is being expected by the experts. Though, the Blackcaps will be having the advantage of their home crowd but at the same time they will be under huge pressure a well.

The other positive thing for the Kiwis is that they still unbeaten in the ongoing global event. However, both the teams will be under same sort of pressure for never play the final of any CWC despite qualifying for the semi-finals on several times.

Before this particular match, New Zealanders have played six semi-finals of various world cups and South Africa appeared times. But ironically both teams failed to move forward every time. This is an ideal time for both sides to seal their final berth. The visitors Protease have had the habit of failing in knock out stages but their previous performance against Sri Lanka has boosted their confidence for sure.

On papers both the sides look well balanced and fully equipped with world class batsmen, swinging fast bowlers, lethal leg spinners and excellent fielders. But this will be more the war of nerves than the skills according to the cricket pundits.

As for as the performance of the both sides in the quarter-finals have concerned they have done reasonably well. Both the team out classed the opponents and made the competition looking one sided. South Africa defeated Sri Lanka in the quarter final whereas New Zealand overcame West Indies in the respective contests.
