The New Zealand cricket team toured South Africa for cricket matches in the 2005–06 season. Owing to South Africa's busy schedule, the tour was split into two legs, one to be played in October 2005 with the six limited overs matches (one Twenty20 International and five One Day Internationals), and the second leg to be played in April and May 2006, including three Test matches. Before the limited overs series began, New Zealand were ranked third on the ICC ODI Championship table, two places ahead of their hosts South Africa [1]. However, New Zealand had never won an ODI series in South Africa before this tour [2], and they were not to do it this summer either. In fact, New Zealand did not win a single one of the five matches, and only the rain – which sent the fourth match into a no-result – prevented the Kiwis from going down 0–5. The test series was similarly disappointing for New Zealand, with South Africa claiming it 2-0. After two series losses to Australia it was a satisfying result for the South Africans.

Squads[edit]

Albie Morkel was also in the squad for the Twenty20 International. Dippenaar was diagnosed with a wrist injury after the first ODI [5] and was replaced by Andrew Puttick as an emergency [6]. AB de Villiers also joined the squad from the second match, as a replacement for Andrew Hall, as the selectors wanted to rotate their players "in order for them to get more time in the middle" as selector Haroon Lorgat put it [7]. Hall and Puttick were left out of the squad for the third ODI, with Jacques Rudolph coming in as replacement, and after Herschelle Gibbs and Nicky Boje announced that they would not take part of the tour of India in November, they were replaced by Hall and Morkel for the fourth and fifth match [8].
