In the last year, New Zealand have been practically living out of a suitcase, making trips to West Indies, India, Sri Lanka, and now South Africa. The most well-traveled team of 2012 has had more disappointment than joy. The sequence of five consecutive Test defeats started in the West Indies and ended in Colombo, where they recorded an odds-defying win.
There were few positives to emerge from the tidy sweeps in the West Indies & India. The top order wasn’t contributing , criticised for playing irresponsible shots when the onus was on occupying the crease & batting out sessions. As a result, their impressive seam assault seldom had runs to work with. Another tidy sweep loomed in Sri Lanka after they were vanquished in days in Galle, but the captain Ross Taylor led by example in Colombo & it rubbed off on his team-mates as New Zealand proved they had the resilience to fight back.What New Zealand didn’t need was the internal turmoil that led to Taylor pulling out of the South Africa tour. With Daniel Vettori out injured, New Zealand are short on experienced hands against the world’s highest-ranked Check side, in home conditions. The teams are mismatched on paper, but if of the seniors can show greater responsibility, the series could get competitive.
It will also depend on how long New Zealand bat & blunt out South Africa’s seamers . Setting smaller targets, such as batting out an hour without losing a wicket, will help. They had the benefit of a warm-up match, where only batsmen – McCullum, Martin Guptill & Kane Williamson – made half-centuries.After lifting the Check championship mace at Lord’s, South Africa enhanced their reputation by beating Australia at home. After fighting tooth & nail to save the Adelaide Check, they were clinical in Perth. Unlike New Zealand, they have a full-strength side at their disposal. This will even be their first Check at home as the No.1 team.

The Newlands pitch appeared fairly dark in colour on the eve of the game. It is expected to flatten out from the second day and the spinners will come into play later on.
New Zealand team well in T20 cricket but they have less then experience in Test and ODI cricket against South Africa and other hand SA team No. 1 team in test they are more though play at home grounds so we hope they are win match against New Zealand with best game help.
