Australia tour of South Africa 2023 1st T20 Match Overview
Almost all cricket teams are busy right before the start of the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup and are trying their best to get the best players for the big tournament. Australia is on the tour of South Africa where they will play three T20 and five ODI matches. This series is very important for both teams before the start of the World Cup. There is big news for the visitors, Australia their main all-rounder, Glenn Maxwell is out because of an injury during practice and Matthew Wade will join the team as his replacement. Let’s have a look at both teams.
South Africa Reviews
South Africa recently lost a T20 series against West Indies 2-1 and now had to win this T20 series at any cost. They had picked the best players for this home series against Australia and we are sure that they have the ability to beat the visitors in their home conditions. The batting order of South Africa is strong at least on paper. Reeza Hendricks is leading the batting order of the home side with Aiden Markram. Reeza Hendricks had scored 1544 runs in the previous 15 innings with an average of near about 32. Aiden Markram had also been good in previous matches and had scored 966 runs in 30 innings.
David Miller, Rassie van der Dussen, Dewald Brevis, and the skipper, Temba Bavuma are experienced batsmen of T20 cricket and we are sure that these batsmen will perform well in their home conditions. Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, and Tristan Stubbs are also part of the squad of South Africa for this home series. The bowling unit of South Africa is also strong and experienced and they can give a tough time to the batsmen of Australia. Lungi Ngidi will be handling the bowling unit of South Africa with Anrich Nortje, Keshav Maharaj, Wayne Parnell, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Kagiso Rabada. Sisanda Magala, Bjorn Fortuin, and Gerald Coetzee are also available for the selection of playing eleven of this match.
Australia had recently played a successful Ashes series against England and this is the main reason why they had given the rest to their main players like Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Cameron Green, David Warner, and Pat Cummins for this T20 series but we are sure that these players will join the ODI team. We think that this is a smart move as the cricket World Cup is around the corner and Australia has fresh players for this big event. Australia had faced a couple of injuries right before the start of this tour of South Africa.
We think that Steve Smith will miss this entire series due to the wrist injury he faced in the Ashes series and we are sure that he will be available for the World Cup. Mitchell Marsh is the new leader of Australia for this T20 series. The main batsmen of Australia will be missing from this series so it will be the test of their middle and lower batting order. Tim David will be handling the batting order of Australia with Travis Head and Matthew Short. Aaron Hardie, Mitchell Marsh, and Ashton Turner are available for the support of the batting order. Jason Behrendorff will be leading the bowling unit with Nathan Ellis, Spencer Johnson, and Adam Zampa.
