How can I watch the Proteas v New Zealand at the 2023 Cricket World Cup?

The Proteas will be eager to continue their form at the 2023 Cricket World Cup when they face New Zealand on Wednesday.

As the global showcase moves closer to the end of the Group Stage, the race for booking a place in the semi-finals is hotting up. South Africa, along with undefeated India, New Zealand and Australia have put some distance between them and the chasing pack.

Nonetheless, Temba Bavuma's men would want to put a marker in the sand when they face perennial contenders New Zealand in Pune. 

Thanks to a deal between the SABC and MultiChoice, fans can watch the action live on SABC or stream right here on for free. 

The South Africans are coming off a tense 1-wicket victory over Pakistan on Friday, where the lower-order batters held their nerve against a spirited Pakistani bowling attack. While Aiden Markram broke the back of the chase with a superlative 91 off 93, Keshav Maharaj held the tail together to sneak the Proteas over the line

The victory sees them well placed on the points table, second only to imperious hosts India. 

Meanwhile, the Black Caps have lost two games - to India and Australia - on the bounce. While Tom Latham's charges are coming off a narrow five-run loss to Australia, they can take huge confidence in being within just one lusty blow of chasing down the mammoth 388 set by their cross-Tasman rivals.

Daryl Mitchell and Mitchell Santer are key performers for New Zealand. Mitchell is averaging over 65 with the willow in his last seven outings, while spinner Santner has scooped 14 wickets in the tournament with a miserly 20.21 average. 

For the Proteas, the tournament's leading run-scorer, Quinton de Kock, has been relentless with the bat at the top of the order. With the ball, leg-spinner Tabraiz Shamsi is coming off a neat 4/60 against Pakistan while beanpole paceman Marco Jansen is the Proteas top wicket-taker with 13 scalps.

Catch all the action on Wednesday from 10:30 am live from Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
