Did you Know?
Australia and South Africa almost have a similar kind of win-loss record in T20 World-Cups. Australia have won 16 and lost 13 from 29 games, while South Africa have won 18 and lost 12 from 30 matches.
Dawid Warner has a good record against South Africa, where he averages 35.15 in the 14 T20I innings against SA. He has bashed 457 runs at a SR of 148.86. However, leading into the WC matches, his current form is under question.
T20 No.1 bowler Tabraiz Shamsi is in red-hot form as he has picked 28 wickets in 17 T20Is this year.
Australia Squad: Aaron Finch(c), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade(w), Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Swepson, Kane Richardson, Josh Inglis

Australia will hope their lacklustre top order can fire from the word go when they open their T20 World Cup campaign against an under-the-radar South African side, playing without the usual burden of pressure, in a Super 12 Group 1 match on Saturday. Australia, who are searching for their maiden T20 title, enter the tournament on the back of a horrific run, losing bilateral series to Bangladesh, West Indies, New Zealand, India and England.
