10:29 AM

OVER 6: SA 29/3 (Markram 7* Klaasen 1*)

Cummins is into the attack for the first time. He tucks up Markram, no run. And repeat. Markram walks across the crease, trying to create room to access the leg side but he misses it completely.

Markram punches through the offside for four. Shot of the day! There are no demons in this pitch, despite the scoreline. Markram scrambles a single. Klaasen then takes one. That’s the powerplay done.

10:25 AM

That’s one way to separate out fans…

10:24 AM

OVER 5: SA 23/3 (Markram 2* Klaasen 0*)

Klaasen is in earlier than expected. Hazlewood maintains an excellent line, starting with five dots to Klaasen – wicket maiden!

10:21 AM

WICKET! de Kock b Hazlewood 7

Oh dear. De Kock tries to scoop Hazlewood. The ball hits his thigh pad and slowly trickles towards the stumps, knocking off the bails.

Huge wicket for Australia.

FOW: 23/3

10:19 AM

OVER 4: SA 23/2 (Markram 2* de Kock 7*)

Maxwell will continue after an impressive opening over. A dot is followed by a single from Markram. De Kock then drives extravagantly through the covers for no run. Maxwell drops a tad short and de Kock rocks onto the back foot and pulls it for four. The offie responds with a dot.

De Kock will keep the strike.

10:17 AM

OVER 3: SA 17/2 (Markram 1* de Kock 2*)

Hazlewood gets an edge from his second ball too, but this time it runs down to third man. Markram off the mark.

Hazlewood was superb in the IPL and has continued is form here. He nips a ball into the pads of left-handed de Kock – no run. And repeat. The next ball generates a dot ball too.

10:12 AM

WICKET! van der Dussen c Wade b Hazlewood 2

Hazlewood starts his spell with a beauty. The ball nips away off a full length, getting a thin edge through to the keeper. Australia now on top!

FOW: 16/2

10:11 AM

OVER 2: SA 16/1 (van der Dussen 2* de Kock 2*)

Van der Dussen – who was in great touch in the warm-ups – strides out to the crease and clips a single from his first ball. De Kock pulls a short ball for one before van der Dussen pinches the strike.

10:08 AM

WICKET! Bavuma b Maxwell 12

The part-timer has struck! The move from Finch pays off as he slides on past the bat of Bavuma and into the stumps! 

FOW: 13/1

10:07 AM

OVER 2: SA 13/0 (Bavuma 12* de Kock 1*)

Maxwell will open from the other end with his part-time offies – and a woeful new haircut, it must be said.

Bavuma flicks the ball for one through mid-wicket. De Kock hands him back the strike the following ball.

10:04 AM

OVER 1: SA 11/0 (Bavuma 11* de Kock 0*)

Starc will deliver the first over. He shapes the ball into Bavuma who pushes the ball through the offside for two. The South African captain defends the second delivery before crunching a drive through the covers for four! What a shot! And repeat. Bavuma guides this drive slightly squarer but still all the way to the boundary.

The strike is handed to de Kock for the first time with a run down to third man. Starc bangs it in and de Kock misses out. 

Great start for South Africa.

Good morning and welcome to Telegraph Sport’s live coverage of Australia-South Africa

Australia captain Aaron Finch believes powerplays will make or break team fortunes at the Twenty20 World Cup, apart from being a potent antidote to the pesky dew factor.

Australia will launch their bid for the only major global trophy that has eluded them with today’s Group 1 match against South Africa in Abu Dhabi.

Finch would worry less about the dew factor as only one of their five group matches is a night game, but his experience in the recent Indian Premier League (IPL) tells him the first six overs still remained crucial.

“Even though it’s different surfaces to what the IPL used, we saw the impact that had,” Finch told a news conference on Friday.

“The teams that won the powerplay went a long way to winning the game as the wickets deteriorated.”

Australia got a taste of the dew factor in their warm-up match against New Zealand and Finch had no doubt it would be a headache for the teams.

“As the conditions cool down slightly in the coming month or so, it will probably become heavier and heavier. Then the toss does become really important,” he said.

“The way out is making the first six overs count.

“Regardless of how dewy it does get, if you can control that part of the game, it goes a huge distance in winning the match.”

Australia have the experience in their batting line-up to master the challenge, said the opener.

To make the powerplays count, Australia will need David Warner to rediscover his form after being dropped by his IPL franchise midway through the UAE leg of the tournament.

Finch was convinced Warner would be back among runs soon.

“I’m backing Davey’s ability, I’m backing his judgement. If you look at these World Cup history, it’s bloody good,” Finch said.

“Would he have liked more runs? Absolutely, everyone would like more runs all the time. He’s one of the greatest players Australia has ever produced and I’ve got no doubts that come game one, he’ll be up and firing, ready to go.”
