    NZ should be worried about AB & co.. aside from Boult (and Vettori somewhat) none of the others seem to give you any control atm. Can NZ bowl out SA for <300 if they bat first? Doubt it from what I saw today.

    nz bowlers not peaking as a unit is a concern. dont rate the batting, as its only the windies attack. try to do the same vs morkel,abbott, steyn, tahir and co is not easy.

    southee's form looks a major concern after the 7 fer, he has just self destructed.

    sth africa will have boult pegged a 'see off' and attack the rest.

    I don't think SA's bowling is that good tbh. Steyn is below his best, Morkel & Abbott have bowled well but I think NZ can handle them. Tahir might be the difference.

    Halba and viriya taking the concept of you're only as good as your last few games far too literally.

    Eden Park crowd needs to absolutely give it to SA and get intheir heads so we could bowl even gup and ross in tandem and still win

    The only thing that matters is that whoever wins this game goes on to win the final.
