Australia vs South Africa – Powerhouses Seeking Their First Title

Australia and South Africa dominated the Test rankings in the first 15 years of this century. Australia extended their dominance to the ODI arena as well, winning 3 of the 4 World Cups between 2003 and 2015. Neither team, though, has won the T20 World Cup, and the latest edition in the UAE in October-November 2021 offers them a chance to create history.

On the field, this has been one of the fiercest rivalries, between two teams traditionally famed for producing fearsome fast bowlers and hard-hitting batters. Back in 1999, the two teams played out one of the most famous limited-over matches of all time, the tie in the World Cup semi-final at Edgbaston. Both teams have struggled to scale such heights in recent seasons, but this Australia-South Africa cricket match – only their second meeting at the T20 World Cup – will play a big part in deciding which teams qualify from a group that also includes the might of the West Indies and England, the two finalists of the 2016 edition.

Aaron Finch: Australia Captain

The quest to convert Finch into a Test opener never worked out, but in the limited-overs formats, Finch has been one of the finest players of the past decade. His century against England set the platform for their 2015 World Cup win, and except for a spell when Steve Smith was in charge, it’s Finch that has led the team in T20Is and ODIs. This is one trophy Australia have never won, and at the age of 34, Finch will know he won’t get many more chances to correct that anomaly.

Temba Bavuma: South Africa Captain

It’s only in recent seasons, since the international retirement of AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis’s stepping down from captaincy, that Bavuma has come into his own as a batter. For a long time, he was viewed only as a Test player. But when given chances in ODIs and T20Is, he has grabbed the opportunities with both hands. With transformation still such a touchy topic in South Africa, both his leadership and form will come under intense scrutiny in this T20 World Cup.
