Australia win the toss and opt to field first

“Looks like a very good wicket, we don’t see it changing much. There’s a nice covering of grass and a dry surface underneath. We’ve got experience in our side, but we haven’t had the luck of being together a lot recently, so hopefully we can do that today and get off to a great start.”

15:00 (IST)

“It’s a very good pitch, the grass looks even and the new-ball bowlers will get some help, even the spinners will enjoy this surface. It’s very warm in Abu Dhabi.” – Sunil Gavaskar and Danny Morrison in their pitch report

Struggling West Indies face tough ask against England in opener

Two-time champions but currently out of sorts, the West Indies will hope to raise their game by a few notches when they open their campaign against favourites England in a Super 12 match of the ICC men’s T20 World Cup here on Saturday.

A team packed with some of the most destructive T20 players, the West Indies cut a sorry figure in the two warm-up games against Pakistan and Afghanistan and would need to quickly shrug off the disappointment ahead of the tournament proper.

Australia’s top order in focus against in-form South Africa

David Warner’s form is a huge concern but the team is adamant the opener will turn things around. His IPL form was woeful, he was dropped from the team for the second time this year after scores of 0 and 2 last month. His troubled run continued in the two warm-up games where he scored 0 and 1.

Skipper Aaron Finch, who is coming off a knee surgery, is also short of match practice as is vice-captain Pat Cummins who hasn’t played any cricket since the IPL’s first leg in April. He even arrived to the UAE later than the others.

Hello and welcome to our coverage of the T20 World Cup!

Australia vs South Africa, T20 World Cup, Latest Updates: Big guns will be in action on the opening day of the Super 12 stage of T20 World Cup. The first match is between Aaron Finch’s Australia against Temba Bavuma’s South Africa at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Preview: Big guns will be in action on the opening day of the Super 12 stage of T20 World Cup. The first match is between Aaron Finch’s Australia against Temba Bavuma’s South Africa at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Both Group 1 teams haven’t won the T20 World title and they will aim to get off to a winning start.

A win on Saturday will certainly be a lot of help to Australia who enter the tournament with a few concerns. They are suffered four series defeats against Bangladesh, West Indies, New Zealand, India and England, also losing eight of their last 10 T20I games.

David Warner is going through a tough time with the bat. His IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad dropped him after failures in the UAE and in the two warm-up games against New Zealand and India, he made 0 and 1.

At least form-wise, South Africa are better when compared to their opponents. They are entering the tournament on the back of three consecutive series win against West Indies, Ireland and Sri Lanka. They have also beaten Afghanistan and Sri Lanka in the two warm-up games.

Batting is one area which Proteas have to concentrate and a lot will depend on Quinton de Kock. In the bowling department, the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi make a formidable unit.

Here’s all you need to know about the Group 1 match between Australia and South Africa.
