South Africa vs Australia Match Prediction
South Africa will win the toss and choose to bat first but this time Australia will win the match. South Africa’s reply got off to the worst possible start with skipper AB de Villiers dismissed for a first ball duck after edging Nathan Coulter-Nile, allowing Nevill to take an easy catch on his T20I debut. The Proteas were reduced to 17-2 after a leading edge from Quentin de Kock (seven) gave Coulter-Nile a simple caught and bowled. Faf du Plessis (40) restored some momentum for the home side but Duminy was caught by Andrew Tye leaving South Africa 41-3 in the sixth over.
The 10th over saw two South Africa wickets fall in successive deliveries. Rilee Roussow (19) was caught by Khawaja at backward point after slashing at a Marsh full toss before Du Plessis was run out by some smart work from Nevill after David Miller tried to pinch a quick single. Wiese came in and hit a big six over cow corner but his 11-ball knock of 13 ended when he was run out after a mix up with Miller which saw them both end up at the same end. South Africa looked like they were cruising to victory but Finch took a brilliant catch, running across from mid-off and diving to dismiss Chris Morris (eight), leaving the hosts seven wickets down, needing 24 from 19 balls. But Miller was unruffled smashing a four and a six in the 18th over before Kyle Abbot (six not out) hit Tye straight back down the ground for a final-over boundary, giving South Africa victory with three balls to spare.
