Proteas Cricket Test Series Betting
In terms of South Africa vs. New Zealand Cricket Test odds, the
Proteas are strongly favoured to win at most online betting sites, including
In the test cricket rankings South Africa is at No. 2 while New Zealand is at
No. 8. However, in the rain-marred South Africa vs. New Zealand first cricket
test, either team could have won on the last day, which has given the home team
a much-needed morale boost.
For the South Africans, the good news is that AB de Villiers has passed his
fitness test and is playing in the second test, after he hurt his ankle during
practice earlier in the week.
The talented player led the team in the South Africa vs. New Zealand T20 and
ODI series victories, before handing the reigns to regular test captain, Graeme
Smith. While de Villiers batted brilliantly in the shorter formats of the game,
he failed to deliver in the first test and will obviously be looking to correct
that in the second.
For South Africa, the biggest disappointment of not winning the first test
match will be that they now have no chance of rising to the No. 1 spot in the
current year’s ICC Test Cricket rankings. They needed a 3-0 win in the South
Africa vs. New Zealand Test series to be in the running. However, they will
expect to win the test series and live up to the faith their supporters and
punters have put in them.
