Southee returns as New Zealand bowl against South Africa

South African openers Temba Buvama and Quinton de Cock.

 

New Zealand recalled Tim Southee for their World Cup clash against South Africa and the paceman was straight into the field after captain Tom Latham opted to bowl first after winning the toss in Pune on Wednesday.

Southee replaced Lockie Ferguson after his fellow quick suffered an Achilles injury in New Zealand's agonising five-run defeat by Australia last time out.

South Africa, beaten just once at this World Cup compared to fellow semi-final contenders New Zealand's two defeats, made just one change with fast bowler Kagiso Rabada replacing spinner Tabraiz Shamsi on a pitch expected to favour the quicks.

New Zealand have won five straight World Cup matches against South Africa since 1999.
