South Africa are preparing to welcome Australia for an intense limited-overs battle as the cricketing rivals square off in a highly anticipated three-match T20I series. The action-packed series is set to kick off on August 30, promising thrilling encounters and intense competition on the cricket field.
The last time these two teams faced off in a T20I series on South African soil was back in February 2020, shortly before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. The visitors had then managed to clinch a 2-1 victory. With the cricketing landscape much changed since then, both teams are eager to replicate or surpass that outcome in their upcoming battles.
In a recent development, Mitchell Marsh has been appointed as Australia’s new T20I captain. As the leader of the shortest format, Marsh is expected to bring his experience and strategic acumen to guide his team towards success.
