In the case of the shortest format of the sport, South Africa have been completely phenomenal after the T20 World Cup 2021. Though Temba Bavuma and firm suffered a sequence defeat by the hands of India lately, they’ve a number of positives going ahead.

David Miller has been distinctive for the crew to date and wicketkeeper-batter Quinton De Kock has additionally seemed in splendid type. Rilee Rossouw hit an impressive century in opposition to India within the third T20I of the sequence and is the form of participant who can dominate in opposition to any bowling line-up on the planet. Amidst all of the positives, captain Bavuma’s type is a serious concern for the crew.

The white-ball captain of the South African crew hasn’t been picked up by any franchise for the inaugural SA20 league and Bavuma appears to be below great quantity of strain to show his critics flawed. His place within the taking part in XI can be being questioned by a number of followers on social media as Reeza Hendricks is at present not part of the taking part in XI.

Coming to the bowlers, the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje will likely be South Africa’s asset in Australia. Because the pitches typically supply loads of bounce in Australia, these pacers can do a number of harm. Wayne Parnell’s expertise will even turn out to be useful. The inconsistency within the spin division will be a difficulty however the crew is sweet sufficient to deal with that.
