South Africa take on New Zealand in the second of three one-day international games to be played in Napier today.
A win today will see South Africa add the ODI trophy to their victory in the Twenty20s in New Zealand.
Gary Kirsten, head coach, has made plain that South Africa's goals are to win every series they play, whether at home or away, and a triumph on his first visit abroad with the team will serve as a strong indication of what the team can offer in future.
So far, almost everything South Africa has tried has worked.
What has been most impressive about South Africa's performances in New Zealand has been the apparent progress they have made in the mental side of the game.
After starting the tour brightly, with victory in the first T20, New Zealand has let South Africa have the better of them.
Always a shrewd side, New Zealand will have to think harder than normal to come up with ways to beat a South African side who seem to have an answer for everything.
