Australia vs South Africa Head to Head Record in T20 World Cup and T20Is: In the 13th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, Australia will be up against South Africa as the Super 12 round of the mega-events gets underway on Saturday, October 23, at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium of Abu Dhabi. Neither Australia nor South Africa have won the T20 World Cup trophy previously and losing their very first game of the tournament could have huge ramifications on both sides, especially considering the way Group 1 is stacked.
Australia came closest to winning the title in the 2010 edition of the league when they finished as runner-ups. South Africa, on the other hand, have failed in qualifying for the final of the summit clash in the previous six editions of the tournament and will hope to improve their records.
Australia are heading into the World Cups after losing their second warm-up match against India by eight wickets. South Africa, however, won both their warm-up games by defeating Afghanistan and Pakistan by 41 runs and six wickets, respectively.
Ahead of the start of the second round of the tournament; here we take a look at the head to head records of Australia and South Africa:
