The New Zealand women's cricket coach, Haidee Tiffen, has hinted at possible changes to her side for Sunday morning's pool match against South Africa at the World T20.

South Africa have recorded a win and a loss at the tournament while the White Ferns have won all three of their pool games to top Group A.

Tiffen kept her cards close to her chest when asked about possible changes before the match at Bengaluru.

"We probably feel there's a bit more pace in this wicket compared to the last game we played in Nagpur," she said.

"The brains trust will get together. We'll have a discussion and we'll go from there."

Tiffen said the White Ferns have to play well against South Africa "and earn the right to be in that semi-final."

"Just stick to the now, staying in the present and we've got a game to focus on tomorrow."
