Australia will be eyeing to get the job done against South Africa in the match number 45 of the ICC World Cup 2019 on Saturday.
The Aussies are in the hunt for a top-place finish and will need a win to guarantee the same.
SA will want to make things difficult for Australia and end their campaign on a high.
Australia won’t be complacent against the Proteas
Australian coach Justin Langer has stated that the team won’t be complacent against South Africa on Saturday. The Aussies will look to continue in the same vein and go about their plan.
The defending champions have played solid all-round cricket and will make things difficult for the Proteas.
The focus will be on Mitchell Starc, who has been in supreme form with the ball.
South Africa need to produce a fight
South Africa had a poor World Cup campaign, but one cannot write them off. A win will help them bow out with seven points from nine matches.
A lot of work will be required from Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla with the bat. Kagiso Rabada and Imran Tahir hold the key with their bowling. South Africa will hope to end the resurgence of Aussies.
According to reports, there is some slight drizzle expected in the morning. But things will clear out as the day progresses. The conditions will be cloudy.
Teams batting first have won all games at Old Trafford in CWC 19.
Aussies are clear favorites here.
