NZ vs RSA Betting Tips

  • Kane Williamson scored a century in both innings of the first Test of the series and he is our pick for New Zealand’s highest run scorer against South Africa. Kyle Jamieson took six wickets across the opening match and the tall pace bowler is our tip for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • David Bedingham hit 119 runs for South Africa last week and the right-hander is well worth backing as South Africa’s highest run scorer in Hamilton. Captain Neil Brand took eight wickets in Mount Maunganui and the left-arm spinner is a strong choice for South Africa’s top wicket taker against New Zealand.
  • Now averaging 55.12 from 170 Test innings, we recommend selecting Kane Williamson to hit over 31.5 runs in this match.

NZ vs SA 2nd Test Match Prediction & Betting Tips

New Zealand and South Africa meet in the second and final Test in Hamilton with the game getting underway at 11:00am local time on Tuesday. It was a one-sided opening match of the series which saw New Zealand triumph by 281 runs in Mount Maunganui last week. Read on as we preview this game. The match takes place at Seddon Park on 13th February.

New Zealand got ahead on Day 1 of the opening Test and never looked back as they won by a very large margin with a convincing display with both bat and ball in Mount Maunganui. Although Daryl Mitchell’s absence will leave a hole in the side, we still expect them to be far too strong.

There certainly were some positives to take for South Africa from the first game but the truth is that they were completely outplayed and never looked capable of threatening to win the match. It would be a huge shock if they were able to then generate a stronger performance in Hamilton.

NZ vs SA Match Toss Prediction

It is always a good batting surface in Hamilton and we expect that both teams will want to get first use of the pitch and post a large total. We predict both captains will choose to bat first.

NZ vs SA Pitch Report

There does not tend to be much turn for the spinners and the bowlers do have to work hard for their wickets. A par first innings score at Seddon Park will be over 500.

Hamilton Weather Report

The weather forecast is for consistent conditions across this Test in Hamilton with no rain but some cloudy spells across the five days with the temperature to reach the high twenties on most days.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

There will be at least one change for New Zealand who will be without batting all-rounder Daryl Mitchell for this Test as he is set to rest a long-standing foot injury. Although there could be a temptation to play an additional pace bowler, we expect Will Young to come in for Mitchell at the Seddon Oval.

NZ Key Players

  • Kane Williamson - The 33 year old right-hander has spent a lot of the last 12 months out with injury but he was brilliant in the first Test as he hit his 30th and 31st centuries in the format.
  • Rachin Ravindra - The vastly talented young all-rounder beat the former skipper to the Player of the Match Award after hitting 240 in the first innings and taking 2/16 with the ball.
  • Tim Southee - Although the skipper took only one wicket in Mount Maunganui, it was the opposition skipper who he dismissed! The right-arm pacer now has 375 Test wickets.
  • Kyle Jamieson - The well built right-arm fast medium bowler took 4/58 in the second innings of the first Test and he now has 80 wickets from just 19 Tests.

NZ Team Form

With five wins from their last six and two victories in a row, New Zealand will be looking to maintain their strong Test form in this match.

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

Devon Conway, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson, Rachin Ravindra, Will Young, Glenn Phillips, Tom Blundell, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee (c), Matt Henry

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

There will certainly be discussions from the selectors over the makeup of this side but no players are injured or have ruled themselves out. There were six Test debutants for South Africa in the first game which will probably encourage the selectors to give the same group another opportunity.

SA Key Players

  • Keegan Petersen - The right-hander is still highly regarded by plenty at Cricket South Africa and you can see why after his hard working 45 runs from 132 balls in the first Test.
  • David Bedingham - The 29 year old middle order batter showed excellent character with 87 runs from 96 balls in the second innings and he now averages 39.60 in Test cricket.
  • Neil Brand - The skipper dismissed eight different players for the hosts in Mount Maunganui and he will be looking to maintain his Test bowling average of 21.37 in this match.
  • Ruan de Swart - The right-arm medium fast bowler was unfortunate to take only two wickets in the first innings last week and he had Kane Williamson as his first Test dismissal.

SA Team Form

South Africa are now looking to avoid their third successive defeat in Test cricket this year.

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Edward Moore, Neil Brand (c), Raynard van Tonder, Zubay Hamza, David Bedingham, Keegan Petersen, Ruan de Swardt, Clyde Fortuin (wk), Duanne Olivier, Tshepo Moreki, Dane Paterson

New Zealand vs South Africa Head to Head

Although New Zealand trail South Africa 26-6 overall, it is the hosts who have won two of the last three head to heads in this format. Both of those wins have been by large margins with New Zealand also winning by an innings and 276 runs in February 2022.

New Zealand vs South Africa Betting Odds

After such a one-sided opening match of the series, it is no surprise to see New Zealand installed as favourites with even shorter odds. New Zealand can be backed at 1.15 with South Africa at 13.00.

Who will win New Zealand vs South Africa 2nd Test Match?

New Zealand showed their class with both bat and ball across the entire Test in Mount Maunganui and the same is expected for this match. Tim Southee’s side have better skills and more experience.

NZ vs SA Top Team Batsmen

Kane Williamson, Rachin Ravindra and Devon Conway are our batting recommendations for New Zealand. Left-handed opener Conway has not been in the best of form over the last nine months but still boasts a Test average of 43.52 from 35 innings. Ravindra starred in the 2023 Cricket World Cup and he now has a Test double century to go alongside his three hundreds in ODI cricket.

For South Africa, David Bedingham, Keegan Petersen and Zubayr Hamza are our batting choices. Right-haded Hamza, who has now played seven Tests, got going in both innings in Mount Maunganui but now needs to turn twenties and thirties into consistent half-centuries. Bedingham has batted in five innings since his Test debut and he has already made two half-centuries.

NZ vs SA Top Team Bowlers

For New Zealand, Tim Southee, Kane Jamieson and Mitchell Santner are our selections with the ball for New Zealand. Bowling all-rounder Santner has the ability to pick up wickets irrespective of the pitch and the spinner impressed in Mount Maunganui with three-wicket hauls in both innings. Jamieson has been very impressive across his Test career and he comes into this match with a bowling average of under 20 in this format.

With the ball, Neil Brand, Ruan de Swardt and Dane Paterson are our picks for South Africa. Paterson returned to Test cricket after a four year absence and was given the new ball in the second innings. He dismissed opener Tom Latham in both innings last week. Brand impressed with his accuracy and ability to make errors from the batters as well as becoming only the second captain to take six-fer on Test debut.

🏆 New Zealand vs South Africa Prediction

Most pundits expected a one-sided Test to begin the series and so it proved in Mount Maunganui. With no new players in the squad to choose from, we expect South Africa to struggle once more. Williamson and Ravindra were both brilliant with the bat and New Zealand’s wide variety of bowlers was also an advantage. Our prediction is once more for a New Zealand win.
