Cricket Match Preview:

A brief but important tour, South Africa of Australia is coming to an end. South Africa would be very pleased with the outcome of the tour so far. They won the ODI cricket series handsomely against Australia in Australia and that is never an easy task. Australia, meanwhile, are hurting and would like to get some success before another tough trial begins in the form of India.

Considering the 50 over World Cup next year in England, every side’s focus right now is on the fifty over cricket games. The T20 series is mostly being looked as the preparation for that or to give chance to some youngsters so they can be ready by the time the T20 World Cup arrives. South Africa and Australia would look to do the same as we saw Australia resting its pace trio Mitch Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood. South Africa would also be looking to rest recently returned Dale Steyn from this game of cricket.

South Africa are likely to go with the pace attack consisting of Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi, while their spinners are likely to be one of Imran Tahir and Tabrez Shamsi. The place of allrounders will be taken by either Andile Phehlukwayo or Dwaine Pretorious. Australia, meanwhile, would like to include the T20 experts like Andrew Tye, who has made a good name for himself in the T20 franchise cricket.

A complete dominance over a tour rarely happens nowadays and South Africa have the chance to do just that in Australia. They have already won the ODI series and if they can win the T20 series as well, they would return home satisfied. Australia, on the other hand, know that India will be coming hard at them come 21st November hence, they would not get a better chance to test out their players than South Africa.

Cricket Match Information:

Australia and South Africa will clash in a solitary T20 game of cricket as the brief tour of South Africa comes to its culmination. Australia lost the three-match ODI series against South Africa by a margin of 2-1. Australia would like to get something out of this series hence, if they can win this T20 match, it should give them some confidence before India’s arrival.

South Africa

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

South Africa would like to try out some youngsters in their squad for this game of cricket. The likes of Hendricks and Markram are likely to get a place in the playing eleven. Chris Morris is all set to make a comeback as well to the playing eleven. Our prediction is they will go with either of the two spinners in Imran Tahir and Tabrez Shamsi.

Here is our prediction of South Africa’s playing XI:

  • Quinton De Kock
  • RR Hendricks
  • Henrich Klassen
  • Faf du Plessis
  • Aiden Markram
  • David Miller
  • Andile Phehlukwayo
  • Chris Morris
  • Kagiso Rabada
  • Imran Tahir
  • Lungi Ngidi


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Australia managed to win just one ODI cricket game against South Africa. Our prediction is they would go with Billy Stanlake, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Andrew Tye as their pacers. Our prediction is Adam Zampa will be part of the eleven as a leg spinner.

Here is our prediction of Australia’s playing XI:

  • Aaron Finch
  • Chris Lynn
  • D’Arcy Short
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • AT Carey
  • Adam Zampa
  • Billy Stanlake
  • Andrew Tye
  • Ashton Agar
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Chris Lynn has had a disappointing time in Australian colours. However, the shortest format of the game suits him the most. Hence, some fireworks can be expected from Lynn’s bat in this T20 cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

This T20 cricket will be the first-ever international game to be played at this venue. This venue has been mostly known as the football venue and as a result, the nature of the pitch is not quite known. However, the general nature of any Australian pitch is bouncy, and it should produce some runs. Our prediction is to expect a score of around 160 from the team batting first and chasing team to chase it down.

Our Prediction:

South Africa will begin the game of cricket as favourites. They are a form side and that is exactly what is missing from Australian cricket team right now.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Chris Lynn (AUS) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Imran Tahir (SA) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Chris Lynn (AUS)
