But the Proteas, with just one win from five matches, know they can not afford another defeat if they want to maintain their slender hopes of a semi-final place.

Sodhi, 26, appears to be in the frame for his World Cup debut, as the Black Caps weigh up playing two spinners to face the Proteas.

South Africa will need their bowlers to step up to keep their World Cup hopes alive.

The World Cup 2019 New Zealand vs South Africa match live streaming will be available live on Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 1 with English Commentary and Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 Hindi HD with Hindi Commentary. It's a must win in their tournament.

The Proteas can not afford any more slip-ups in their remaining games against New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia if they are to maintain slender hopes of a semi-final berth.

Asked if he was anxious about his own performance with only three wickets so far, Boult said he was focusing more on the 30 wickets his team has taken.

Despite labelling the game as a "quarter-final" and admitting that the clash at Edgbaston is a "big game", De Kock was measured in addressing the media.

Reflecting on the Eden Park classic, Boult said "I remember hoping like heck that I don't have to bat". They've got a bit of momentum now from the Afghanistan game, they'll be feeling more confident with a win to their name.

"There have always been exciting games between New Zealand and South Africa over the past World Cups", Boult added.

He's been passed fit, and is keen to get at New Zealand's lineup.

The New Zealand vs South Africa World Cup 2019 match will begin at 03:00 PM IST.

On the other hand, New Zealand have been absolutely professional in their approach so far and are sitting at the second spot in the points table with seven points.

"It's a chance for us to go out there and perform and show we can bring the game and style that we play back home in New Zealand very well, to test it against quality players in foreign conditions on a big stage".

New Zealand has crushed Sri Lanka, squeaked past Bangladesh, thrashed Afghanistan, and been washed out against India.

"We've put the ball where we wanted, and we've put a lot of pressure on the teams that we've come up against". Whether there's a lot of pressure on them, I'm not too sure. "If we can continue to do it as a unit and obviously give us some lower totals to chase, then I'll be happy".
