Abu Dhabi,23/10 (Sirjan Khabar) Australia and South Africa are set to meet in the first match of Group 1 in the ongoing T20 World Cup. Both brigades are gearing up for the match. Starting the movement with a victory will be the main ambition of both brigades. So fans will get to see a contentious match on Saturday. The match will start at3.30 pm.
Predicated on current form and T20 norms, South Africa’s team will be heavy in Saturday’s match. The brigade has won four of the last 10 matches. In the practice match, they’re in a strong mood, losing to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Australia has lost nine of their last 10 matches, while they’ve lost the last five series (Bangladesh, West Indies, New Zealand, India, and England). In the practice match, the brigade won against New Zealand but lost to India.
Captain Australia Finch has made it clear that the Australian brigade will come down to the field with 4 batsmen and 4 bowlers. So Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, and Marcus Steinis will bowl excess overs. Warner’s form in the opener remains stressful for the brigade. All eyes will be on Glenn Maxwell, who batted powerfully in the IPL tomorrow. South Africa has managed to form a balanced brigade. Rasi van der Dussen scored a century in the practice match against Pakistan.
The South African players involved in the last IPL4 proved this through their performances in form. The world’s number one T20 bowler is spinner Tabriz Samish. He could be deadly for the Australian batsman on Saturday. In the last World Cup, Australia and South Africa failed to qualify for the knockout stages. Both brigades have met once before in the T20 World Cup. The match, played in the 2012 edition, saw Australia win by 8 wickets. So South Africa will be aiming for revenge for the previous defeat.
