South Africa vs New Zealand Second Test Pick, Prediction, and Odds
After a match that could have been anyone's had rain not interrupted the last day's play these two teams collide again in Hamilton on March 15 at 09:30pm GMT. Both the teams were upset after match was abandoned due to rain. Players of both the teams were itching to get out as it was anyone's game after stumps on day 4. Ross Taylor made a comeback in New Zealand squad in previous and played really well which made a lot of difference. It was an even contest in the previous game and it should me an even contest now.

Coming to squad of both the teams, there would be a few changes in New Zealand squad. Tim Southee has been dropped from New Zealand squad and as a result of it Gillespie and Nethula might get a chance to play. South Africa on the other hand, would play unchanged unless there are any new injuries in their camp. Form of the both the teams is good which may bring more interest in the game as far as spectators are concerned. Both Kiwis and Proteas were brilliant in the bowling department in the first innings and in batting they played well after pitched eased up a little. Again it can be anyone's game on starting on Thursday unless rain plays a major part but if we have full five days of play, there are good chances that we'll get a result.

It was an even contest in previous game and it might prove to be same again. It is difficult to decide a winner but considering previous records and experience, I'd have to choose South Africa. Yes, there are chances for a Draw but only if weather favors it. Considering all the factors mentioned above and a few other factors, I'll place my money on South Africa.
» Man of the Match Prediction
Batting and Bowling of both the teams are good and are in good form too which brings in many potential for Man of the Match award. Smith, Rudolph and Kallis scored century in last match and some Kiwi batsmen played good cricket as well. Hamilton track is good for batting which ensures easy stay on the crease and in turn opportunity to score big. I'll choose Jacques Kallis' experience and form over other players. In my opinion, Kallis will be the Man of the Match in this 2nd Test.
