Craig McMillan, former Black Cap and now the team's batting coach, spoke about controversies, dubious umpiring and match referee sanctions when he addressed the pre-match press conference at Edgbaston. His insinuations, though, had nothing to do with cricket at all and were instead directed at teammate Ross Taylor, who had officiated at the New Zealand team's 'Quiz Night' on Monday. It is all indicative of the mood in the New Zealand camp: Chilled. They last played a World Cup game on June 8 with the UK weather keeping them indoors since for 10 successive days. They are wary of being caught cold when they get back on the field but do not stress about the "uncontrollables".

Conventional wisdom would have you believe that South Africa could do with such an attitude to maximise their own throughput. But they are above such banality, especially at World Cups. Three defeats in the first week has meant Faf du Plessis's press conferences have a slightly different tenor. Fire, intensity and "four quarter-finals" are some of his oft-repeated narratives.

Du Plessis knows now is no time to be mellow or self-defeating in disposition. Not when South Africa are in another (virtual) knockout game at a venue and against an opposition that have played antagonists in heartbreaks of World Cups past. It is this contrast and context that makes this cricket match worthy of those hushed comparisons to the vastly popular Springboks versus All Blacks clashes.

Wednesday's clash will not quite be March 24, 2015 even though 12 of the 22 that played that night will be around for this one. Defeat may prove to be terminal for only one team. However, New Zealand's as-yet smooth passage into the final-four could still be hampered with big games to follow in the second half of the tournament. They have beaten South Africa in each of their last four World Cup clashes dating back to 2003 and have history to uphold. Those in the lime green, however, have a complicated relationship with the past. It's the bright future they most look forward to.
