Ask the world's leading paceman Dale Steyn who will win the 2015 ICC World Cup? The South African paceman feels co-hosts New Zealand are "dark horse" while Australia can be "annoying" with their in-your-face approach.

Steyn spoke to the South African media on Monday and said the 2015 tournament will be different from the one played in India in 2011. India won the World Cup as co-hosts for the second time after 1983.

Steyn will be leading the South African attack when the Proteas tour Down Under to play eight ODIs over an eight-week period to prepare for the World Cup. New Zealand play the Proteas in Mount Maunganui on October 21 and 24, and in Hamilton on October 27.
