Australia vs South Africa T20 World Cup Playing 11: 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 here 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.

South Africa, on the other hand, will enter the clash high on spirits and in-form, having emerged victorious in three consecutive series against defending champions West Indies, Ireland and Sri Lanka and both the practice games.

Injury Concerns: The only real injury concern coming into this World Cup was the bowling fitness of Marcus Stoinis. emba Bavuma played his first match on Monday after 50 days out with a broken thumb
