White Ferns' issue no favours warning

8:29 am on 15 June 2009

Pace-setter New Zealand has warned a struggling South Africa not to expect any let-up when the teams clash in the ICC Women's World Twenty tournament tonight.

The White Ferns are almost certain to reach the semi-finals after crushing Australia by nine wickets and West Indies but coach Gary Stead says his side is determined to make it three out of three in Group A.

Stead says if they win their group they will play the second place team from Group B at Trent Bridge

He says they'd rather play India or Sri Lanka in the last four than England, who beat the White Ferns in the 50 over World Cup final in March.
