Both nations have never made it to the cricket World Cup final before and the winner will play either India or Australia in the final in Melbourne.
Dr Jordaan said he was impressed by how the Proteas have played throughout the tournament and added that they have what it takes to go all the way.
Overall, the Proteas have played New Zealand 61 times in ODIs and South Africa have recorded 36 victories while the Kiwis have 20 wins. Five matches were “no result”.
New Zealand have a slight edge in World Cup matches. In six appearances, they have won four times while the Proteas have two victories.
“We urge the South African public to rally behind the Proteas,” added Dr Jordaan.
