Australia and South Africa will play in the 13th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will cover AUS vs SA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Australia is one of the top countries in world cricket, but they haven’t achieved much in the T20I format. They are yet to win a T20I World Cup.
David Warner and skipper Finch are likely to be the team’s openers, but Warner has not been in good form lately. At No.3, the all-rounder Mitchell Marsh will play a crucial role. In the middle-order, Maxwell and Stoinis will play aggressively, whereas Steve Smith will provide stability.
The pace-trio Starc, Cummins, and Hazlewood will be the crucial wicket-takers of the team. Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar will come into the picture when the pitch starts behaving slow.
Australia hopes to start the tournament on a good note by winning the first match against South Africa.
Even South Africa did not have a good time in the T20I World Cups. They haven’t even reached the finals in the seven tournaments and would want to change it this time.
Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma will open the innings for the team. At No.3, Aiden Markram will play. In the middle-order, Rassie van der Dussen will try to accelerate the innings. In the end, Henrich Klassen and David Miller are expected to play the role of finishers.
There are world-class pacers in the team in the form of Rabada, Ngidi, and Anrich Nortje. The No.1 T20I bowler Shamsi will have a more prominent role on pitches like UAE.
On the whole, South Africa appears to be a balanced side and will give a tough competition in the T20I World Cup 2021.
