South Africa vs Australia, 1st T20I

30 August 2023 @ 9:30 PM IST

Kingsmead, Durban


 SA vs AUS Preview

South Africa have been out of action for a while now, and so are a few of their players. They will now play back-to-back T20Is and ODIs against Australia. Kagiso Rabada and De Kock won’t be a part of the T20I squad and will join before the ODIs.

Australian players are coming off Ashes and a few leagues around the world. They have a very balanced squad and potentially a very good one. Aussies will have a new captain in Mitchell Marsh, who will lead the team in this series and going forward.

Kingsmead Pitch Report

Kingsmead has a tough wicket for the batters and it gets a lot tougher as the game progresses. It has a bowling-friendly track and the new bowlers will get the benefit of it. The average score here is 152.
