NZ win toss, opt to bowl


New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to field first against South Africa after wet outfield reduced the game to a 49-over contest at Edgbaston, Birmingham.

The South Africa – New Zealand game was scheduled to kick off at 3 pm (India Time). South Africa had a dismal start to their World Cup campaign, losing three straight games followed by a washout before registering their maiden win against bottom-placed Afghanistan.

In contrast, New Zealand are yet to face defeat in the tournament and are lying second on the table with three wins and a washout.
