Auckland: Both teams look to make it a terrific Tuesday. Eden park is going to host one of the historic emi finals of the World cup, whichever team wins, will make it to the finals of the World Cup for the very first time. If one visits down memory lane, it could be seen that the Kiwis played the semi final in both 2007 and 2011. In both the cases they lost to Sri Lanka.On the other hand, the South Africans have the reputation of being the most consistent side with the tag of chokers. According to the team’s outfit, the Proteas will be on the move to cast off this tag of chokers. With Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel and a fit Philaander, SA is surely going to give McCullum and co some real sweet chin music.
The Kiwis will be all prepared to take the South Africans for a real test at Eden Park. With Martin Guptill in the kind of form, the Protean pace attack will surely have to relay their strategies and planning. The involvement of Danniel Vettori is to serve as the X-factor to the New Zealanders. In their home ground, SA will be given a torrid time for sure. The match is sure to be a hell of an encounter. Needless to say, with history at the back, the winner of Auckland will have the momentum with them at MCG on the super Sunday.
