There is much to play for both South Africa and New Zealand as they clash in the first semi- finals of the 2015 World Cup at Auckland. The Kiwis have been in great form ata their backyard. And it will require some effort from South Africa to pull it off. Interestingly both the teams will be aiming to reach their maiden World Cup final. So the nerves will be there on both sides. Both skippers Brendon McCullum and A B De Villiers have been in excellent form and have led the side aggressively.
There is no shortage of stars on both sides. If the Proteas have the likes of Hashim Amla, Dale Steyn, A B De Villiers, David Miller , J P Duminy and spin ace Imran Tahir. Then the Kiwis have double centurion Martin Guptill , skipper Brendon McCullum , Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson , Tim Southeee, Trent Boult and Daniel Vettori.
