Dubai: England, in the opening match of T20 World Cup Super 12 stage, could not post a huge target as it had desired; now the results depends on how the team plays with the ball.
Aiden Markram was the torchbearer for the team as he made 40 runs, the highest of all other players. SA had a rocky start as it lost four wickets by the end of powerplay on gathering 29 runs.
Temba Bavuma (12), Heinrich Klaasen (13), David Miller (16), and Kagiso Rabada (19) could stand on the crease for only a while others did move their bat enough to move ahead of one digit score.
Australia Bowlers are seemingly in great form. Mitchell Starc broke the momentum for Aiden as he was approaching his half-century along with Anrich Nortje.
Josh Hazelwood and Adam Zampa each took two wickets of the opponent team, whereas Maxwell and Cummins were successful in sending Bavuma and Klaasen back to stands without letting their bat begin.
Can Rabada, Shamsi, Nortje make things difficult for the Australian batters? Or will it be a cakewalk for the Aussies? We will find out.
