New Zealand Vs South Africa 3rd One Day International 3 Mar Live

Jesse RyderIt has rather been an anti-climatic turnaround of fortune for New Zealand as South Africa continue to dominate the home team in the ODI series as well. With the series decided, the teams meet in the dead, third encounter on Saturday.

Not only are New Zealand troubled by their on-field performances, but the off-field controversies have not spared them either. Following the six-wicket loss, New Zealand players Jesse Ryder and Doug Bracewell were found to have broken the team protocol by going to a hotel and having an argument there. Both the players have correspondingly been dropped from the final match.

On the field, the home team will be looking to salvage some pride and restore some confidence prior to the test series. In the second ODI, their batting succumbed from a healthy position to 230 all out in less than the allotted overs. While Brendon McCullum and Martin Guptill scored half-centuries, the middle-order, mostly consisting of youngsters, failed to carry the momentum. The bowlers too felt the heat and failed to contain the runs, with only Andy McKay having some control but went wicketless.

South Africa eased their way to another series win following the Twenty20 triumph. They will be pleased with the way their batsmen have dominated so far. The ever-dependable Hashim Amla scored a fluent 92 after the uncharacteristic failure in the first match. Good contributions from other batsmen have left the team in good shape.

The performance of the day however came from Morne Morkel who continues to establish his reputation as a top-class bowler. He finished with five wickets and will look to cherish the opportunities on the supportive wicket in the final match. Lonwabo Tsotsobe also chipped in with three wickets and will be seeking consistency as he hopes to reaffirm himself in the team.

The match will be played in Auckland, starting at 2.00pm local time.
