New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bowl in a World Cup match against South Africa in Birmingham on Wednesday.

The match, delayed by a wet outfield for 90 minutes, was reduced to 49 overs per side and was due to start at 12:00 pm local time (15:00 GST).

“We are going to have a bowl, potentially a bit of weather and we will try and make in-roads with the ball,” said Williamson, whose side were unchanged.

“We have come off an extended break so it’s nice to be able to play the same side.”

South Africa, who brought in paceman Lungi Ngidi for Beuran Hendricks, must win the game if they are to stand a realistic chance of reaching the semi-finals after finally recording their first victory of the tournament, against Afghanistan.
