    Du Plessis certainly looks more confident than AB.

    Turns out that the majority of games here have been won chasing but the sun is out and the conditions are conducive to batting so NZ should post a good total. du Plessis said 260 was about par. In oz batting under lights can be tough but in some places there is a dew factor at night.

    AB was quoted yesterday as having second thoughts about captaincy, Faf may be the better bet.

    I would say if NZ get's 270 we will be in for a good game. The last odi here SA scored 299 and lost to Sri Lanka. We do have an inexperienced batting side so I would be worried if NZ got more then 270.

    1.84 per over in the 11th over, we probably need to lift it a tad here.

    Painful to watch for a one day game. Kiwis better step it up.

    They're better to just drop it down and run ffs as opposed playing million dollar shots straight to the fielders.

    If they just bowl at leg stump Williamson's got no chance. Going way too far across.

    Wrong batsmen but good call otherwise

    Dire one day batting on what looks like a perfectly good wicket. Can believe how often they hit straight to fielders in that partnership.
