Proteas sweat over du Plessis availability for New Zealand match at World Cup

10:18 am on 24 March 2014

The South African cricketers are still sweating on the fitness of captain Faf du Plessis ahead of tonight's clash with New Zealand at the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh.

Du Plessis is still recovering from a hamstring niggle which ruled him out of their opening loss to Sri Lanka.

He trained with the side yesterday, but will undergo a fitness test before the match.

New Zealand has a full squad to pick from.
