New Zealand to host South Africa in Test series live on Amazon Prime Video

The New Zealand Men’s team will be back in action against South Africa in a two-match test series from 17th February to 1st March live and exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

In November 2020, Prime Video secured exclusive live cricket rights from New Zealand Cricket board. As a part of the multi-year partnership, international men’s and women’s cricket matches played in New Zealand across all formats – will be available exclusively on Prime Video India. 

New Zealand hosted a two-match test series against Bangladesh to open 2022 and split the series 1-1. While they fell to a shock loss in the first Test, the Kiwis bounced back by winning the second test with an innings in hand. The visitors, South Africa are coming off a 3-0 ODI whitewash and a 2-1 Test series win over India. Both teams are looking to further climb up the tally of the 2021-23 ICC World Test Championship.

New Zealand will be led by captain Tom Latham, who continues to serve as skipper in Kane Williamson’s absence, as he continues recovery from an elbow injury. Mercurial pacer Trent Boult will miss the first Test match. The team will also feature a pair of debutants in Blair Tickner and Cam Fletcher.
