The last T20I between the two groups was played in November 2018 in Australia and South Africa won that match by 21 runs. Out of an aggregate of 18 games played between both the teams, South Africa has won 7 while Australia has won 11.
In their last five games, Australia has won 3 and South Africa has won 2. Australia is coming into this arrangement on the rear of commanding exhibitions against Sri Lanka and Pakistan at home and a hard-battled ODI arrangement against India. South Africa, then again, tied a T20I arrangement against India before losing 2-1 to England.
South Africa should discover a substitution for Temba Bavuma who won’t be accessible for this game because of a hamstring strain. Henrich Klaasen will have his spot at the highest point of the request probably.
Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis and David Miller will be the middle-order batsman with Jon-Jon Smuts and Andile Phehlukwayo being the two all-rounders. Kagiso Rabada will unite with Lungi Ngidi, Days Steyn and Tabraiz Shamsi to frame an imposing bowling assault.
Australia is probably going to offer opportunities to Matthew Wade and Mitchell Marsh in the center request. Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson will be their three pacers nearby leggie Adam Zampa and left-arm spinner Ashton Agar.
