ICC T20I World Cup is all set to move to super-12 stages with 4 teams qualifying from the group stages. Australia and South Africa will open the Super-12 stages with their opening encounter. Australia come into this series after losing their recent T20I matches and they have struggled to play well especially on the slow tracks. South Africa on the other hand have won their recent matches including both their warm up matches. They will look to continue the momentum while the Aussies will consider this as a fresh start and get a win to shrug off their bad form.

Australia Preview

David Warner and Aaron Finch will open the batting for Australia despite Warner`s recent struggles. Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, and Marcus Stoinis will form the core of the middle order and Mathew Wade will be their first choice wicket-keeper in this game. They have Mitchell marsh and Josh Inglis among the reserves.

Mitchell Starc will lead the pace attack with the likes of Josh Hazelwood, Pat Cummins, and Kane Richardson fighting it out the 2 pace bowling slots in the starting XI. Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar will play in this game with Swepson waiting up the ranks. They have a quality pace and bowling attacks in the squad.

Top players to bet on:

Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell has been in red hot form in the last 2 months racking up runs for fun. He scored an attacking 28-ball 37 runs in the warm-up game against India recently too.

Mitchell Starc – Starc has been a phenomenal bowler for Australia and his ability to bowl accurate Yorkers at high pace will be weapon to rely in the death overs. We expect him to trouble batters in power play and death overs.

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steven Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins/Josh Hazlewood, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa

Australia Actual Playing XI:

Aaron Finch, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade, Marcus Stoinis, Steven Smith, David Warner, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Marsh, Josh Hazlewood

South Africa Preview

South Africa are unsure of De Kock`s opening partner and might opt between Skipper Temba Bavuma and Reeza Hendricks. Their middle order comprises of the Aiden Markram, Rassie Van Der Dussen, and David Miller. Heinrich Klassen will their reserve batsmen and keeper in the squad.

Pace duo of Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada will be their trump cards with all-rounder Pretorius and Wiaan Mulder fighting for the third seamer`s spot. Tabraiz Shamsi will be their trump card in the bowling attack and they have a strong spinners Bjorn Fortuin and Keshav Maharaj in their squad.

Top players to bet on:

Rassie Van Der Dussen – RVD had a brilliant outing in the practice game against Pakistan with an unbeaten century. He will look to carry on this form into the crucial matches too.

Tabraiz Shamsi – Shamsi is the No.1 ranked T20I bowler and he will be their trump card in the middle overs. We expect him to bamboozle the batsmen in the middle overs and take wickets regularly.

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Heinrich Klassen, Keshav Maharaj/Bjorn Fortuin, Tabraiz Shamsi, Wiaan Mulder, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada

South Africa Actual Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock, Anrich Nortje, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, Tabraiz Shamsi, Aiden Markram, Temba Bavuma, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi will have bright sunny weather with early 30 degrees on the match day. We expect full match with no weather disturbances.

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi is the best of the 3 pitches in the UAE shores for the batters. The pitch will still have some spice for pacers with the new ball and uneven bounce for the spinners. We expect the average scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Three out of the four matches have been won by teams batting second in Abu Dhabi and teams have chased down 160+ runs effectively on this track. We expect both captains to bowl first in this track.

Australia have a good experienced batting line-up but the poor form of openers might be a big worry. South Africa have a strong batting line-up with in-form players. South Africa has a strong spin contingent when compared to Australia. Both teams are equally poised in terms in the pace department and will need to execute their variations to great effect on this track. We expect South Africa to win this match owing to their recent form and team composition.

South Africa will win the match
