Australia Off To A Great Start, South Africa Lose 4 Early Wickets


T20 World Cup: Two of the strongest teams meet in the first group stage match of the T20 World Cup 2021. This is the first match of Group 1. Australia won the toss and they decided to put South Africa into bat first. 

South African captain, Temba Bavuma said, “It’s been a privilege to lead the team in the tournament, big responsibility and looking forward to it. Two spinners, KG, Nortje, an all-rounder and an extra batsman in Klassen at 6. Our preparations have been good, have played a lot together.”

He sounded confident ahead of the toss. 

Aaron Finch, the Aussie skipper said, “Looks like a good wicket, can’t see things changing a lot during the course of the game. We have a lot of experience in the side, we haven’t played as a group, but we’re looking forward to this tournament.”

Let’s take a look at both the Squads:

Australia XI: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

South Africa XI: Quinton de Kock (wk), Temba Bavuma (c), Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi
