Match Stats: AUS won by 5 wickets

Player of the Match: Josh Hazlewood (AUS) · & 2/19 (4.0)

Of course it was going to be the land down under. The Aussies will be the ones to puncture South Africa’s inflated ego, as they have done so often in the past. Disciplined bowling, outstanding fielding, and unwavering faith all contributed to easing the pain of a shambolic batting display, but it was not enough to prevent the yellow sting of a new wound from penetrating the greens’ hearts.

How far do you intend to go? We’ll have to wait and see. Going into this World Cup, the South Africans had only lost one of their previous ten T20I games. Only two of Australia’s previous ten games had ended in victories.

There hasn’t been a gnarly narrative surrounding these teams’ previous 21 T20I matches, only one of which was played on a global stage. A step in the right direction was taken in this matchup. There will undoubtedly be more, perhaps as soon as the tournament’s knockout rounds begin.

South Africa and Australia’s tense game was once again encapsulated in a runout. It was Lance Klusener, Allan Donald, and the rest of the gang at Edgbaston in the 1999 World Cup semi-final. Aiden Markram was the one who sent Keshav Maharaj back to the throne after the coup.

In addition to his voluminous chest guard, Maharaj was an unusual sight because of the way it billowed under his shirt like a spinnaker, and he joined the circus by slipping and crashing to the ground on his back, with one leg raised in goose-step fashion, as if he’d happened on a banana peel mid-pitch.
