Australia vs South Africa ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Live Cricket Score: Finch wins Toss, opts to bowl

Asia's Tech News Daily

15:32:51 IST

FOUR! Great timing by the Proteas skipper Bavuma who punches it powerfully through cover and doesn’t bother running with the fielders well beaten. 

15:29:25 IST

Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma walk out to the middle to open the batting for the Proteas. Mitchell Starc has the ball in hand to open the bowling for the Aussies. 

15:26:53 IST

Both teams have lined up on the field for the National Anthems. A proud moment for all the cricketers representing their nation. Also a sign that we’re just moments away from the action taking off!

15:18:34 IST

Playing XIs:

South Africa: 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

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

15:10:06 IST

Temba Bavuma – It’s been a previlege to lead the team in the tournament. Two spinners, KG, Notje, an all-rounder and an extra batsman in Klassen. We are coming off with some real momentum – we have confidence in our team and we’ll look to do well.

15:09:35 IST

Aaron Finch – We would like to bowl first. 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. Tough selection choices, but Aston Agar, Kane Richardson, Josh Inglish and Mitch Swepson miss out.

    15:06:40 IST

Surprising decision from Finch but the Australian captain says he doesn’t expect the pitch to change too much and it shows how much he backs his bowling attack to get the team off to a flying start. 

15:04:54 IST

TOSS: Australia win the Toss and choose to bowl. 

15:03:37 IST

The captains are walking out to the middle for the Toss. It might be an important Toss to win with some nice and sunny conditions which could be ideal to get a good score onto the board. 

14:58:02 IST

Key players for Australia:

For the Baggy Greens, Glen Maxwell will be expected to do most of the heavy lifting in the middle order. He’s coming off a great IPL season in which his batting average was 48 and strike rate was a whopping 150. 

Steven Smith if picked today should be able to anchor an innings and provide the safety valve the Aussies need if other batters fail. He has been a consistent performer for the Australian side. However, he needs to get over a slow start in high-scoring games to ensure a victory for his side.

Meanwhile, Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson should give the Australian bowling attack plenty of bite. Boasting express pace and good control both bowlers are sure to keep batters on their toes. 

14:54:49 IST

Key players for South Africa

Just judging by the numbers along, Quinton de Kock is sure to play a key role with the bat in the South Africa squad. Despite tepid performance in the recently concluded IPL, he still has the ability to stay at the crease for long durations while also accelerating the scoring.

Besides, de Kock, David Miller is another South African batter with a lot of responsibility on his shoulder. If the left-handed batter fails to deliver, the South African middle-order could crumble.

In the bowling department, the Proteas have the luxury of being able to call upon the number one T20I bowler in the World right now in the form of Tabraiz Shamsi. Shamsi, along with Kagiso Rabada, can decide the outcome of a the match for South Africa. Their variations could trouble the Australian batters today.

14:44:49 IST

Here’s a look at the full squads for both teams: 

South Africa – Temba Bavuma (C), Keshav Maharaj, Quinton de Kock (WK), Bjorn Fortuin, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Wiaan Mulder, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen

Australia – Aaron Finch (C), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins (VC), Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa

14:42:36 IST

Neither of these sides have lifted the ICC T20 World Cup in the past, Australia came within touching distance in 2010 but finished as Runners-up to Champions and arch-rivals, England. South Africa meanwhile reached the semi-final stage in 2009 but similarly lost out to eventual Champions Pakistan. 

It presents an opportunity for both Aaron Finch and Temba Bavuma to delivery that maiden Title and both captains will be eager to have their names etched into the record books.
