Australia, South Africa kick-off the Super 12 stage of the ongoing T20 World Cup at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. Both teams have been placed in Group 1 and are seeking their maiden T20 title. Australia, led by Aaron Finch, are currently in poor form and lost a T20I series to Bangladesh before the T20 World Cup. Meanwhile, opener David Warner’s form is also currently under the spotlight due to his poor displays in IPL 2021. The former SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain also registered a one-ball duck in the warm-up fixture against New Zealand and could only muster a run off seven balls against India in their other warm-up on Wednesday. On the other hand, South Africa are in good form and defeated Sri Lanka in a T20I series before the tournament. Captained by Temba Bavuma, they also sealed wins against Afghanistan and Pakistan in the warm-up matches. All eyes will be on the bowling attack of The Proteas which consists of the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi in the pace department. They will also rely a lot on their spin team which consists of Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj. (LIVE SCORECARD)
