  • South Africa and Australia kick-off their white-ball clash with the first of their three T20i matches.
  • South Africa lost their previous T20i series to England, winning the first match but losing the final two despite scoring more than 200 on each occasion.
  • Australia's recent T20i form is excellent, meanwhile - two series win against Sri Lanka and Pakistan before their star players furthered their form at the Big Bash League.

 SA vs AUS  Toss Prediction 

South Africa won the toss in each of their last two matches, so the law of averages says they will lose this one – Australia could choose to bat first at The Wanderers.

 SA vs AUS Weather Report 

Scattered thunderstorms are forecast in the evening, with a 36 percent chance of rain when the game is due to start – a figure which only goes up as the night goes on.

 SA vs AUS Pitch Condition 

The Wanderers is an excellent batting wicket, with both these teams enjoying some famous high-scoring matches at this ground.

Team NEWS:

 SA Team News 

Quinton de Kock continues to lead South Africa, despite Faf du Plessis returning to the South Africa squad. Kagiso Rabada is also back in the squad. Heinrich Klaasen top-scored after coming into the team for the final T20 international and could retain his place for this one, particularly with Temba Bavuma absent with a hamstring strain.

 AUS  Team News 
Glenn Maxwell will not make his return to Australia’s white-ball squad after being ruled out of the tour with an elbow injury. Once again, D’Arcy Short has been called back up as a result. Mitchell Marsh is also back in Australia colours, but Marcus Stoinis’ superb Big Bash League form has not earned a recall. Matthew Wade is back in the squad, however.

 Key Players: 

 SA Key Players: 

 Quinton de Kock: 
Leading the team now, the wicket-keeper-batsman scored 131 in the series against England, including a 17-ball half-century in the second match.

 Faf du Plessis: 
Stepped down as South Africa captain but still a key batsman in all formats, he has scored 5,214 runs in his 200 T20 innings with a strike rate of 127.20.

 Lungi Ngidi:  
Took eight wickets in the series against England, including three wickets in each of the first two matches.

 AUS Key Players: 

 David Warner:
Scored yet another century during the ODI series with India, he is also set for a hostile reception back in South Africa but his recent form is outstanding.

 Steve Smith:
Back in South Africa, where he was when the ball-tampering scandal broke, he arrives on the back of helping Sydney Sixers to victory in the Big Bash League.

 Aaron Finch:
Scored 109 and 63* in his last two T20 innings during the Big Bash League, continuing his own excellent form at the top of the order.

 Team Forms: 


After a drawn series with India, South Africa lost their most recent series to England despite winning the opening game by just one run – Lungi Ngidi turning the game on its head with some excellent death bowling as South Africa defended 177/8.

In the following game, they were set 205 to win and Quinton de Kock hit 65 in pursuit but they fell short on 202/7. The final game was less dramatic, however – Heinrich Klaasen top-scored with 66 in a total of 222/6 but the tourists chased it down for the loss of just five wickets.


This is Australia’s first T20 series of 2020 before they beat Pakistan 2-0 & 3-0 to Sri Lanka.
