They show how the Proteas aim to bowl to each New Zealand batsman in the three match one-day international series which begins tonight in Centurion.

Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, and Colin Munro are labelled as susceptible to bouncers, while captain Kane Williamson is described as a poor puller of the ball.

The plans describe George Worker and Luke Ronchi as compulsive pullers, and Nathan McCullum as a player who often gets caught at deep square leg.

A hotel guest in Centurion claimed the plans were slipped under her door.

The series is the first time the Black Caps have locked horns with the Proteas in 50-over cricket since their thrilling World Cup semi-final at Eden Park.
