Australia vs South Africa Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Host nation Australia take on South Africa in the second semi-final of the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney on Thursday evening.

Australia finished second in Group A behind India, while South Africa beat off England to win Group B.

Australia beat New Zealand by 4 runs in their final group match to qualify for the semi-finals, while South Africa’s match against the West Indies was abandoned due to rain.

Australia Form & News

Australia met neighbours New Zealand in their final group match at the Junction Oval in Melbourne on Monday. The prize for the winner of that match was a place in the semi-finals of the tournament. Australia scraped through by 4 runs on the day after posting 155/5 in their 20 overs.

Beth Mooney top scored for Australia with 60 runs. The opening batswoman was the anchor the Aussies needed after losing Alyssa Healy early. This innings follows hot on the heels of her 81 not out against Bangladesh.

That victory over New Zealand means Australia have now won 4 of their last 5 T20 matches.

South Africa Form & News

South Africa’s last match of the T20 World Cup against the West Indies at the Sydney Showground Stadium in Sydney was unfortunately called off due to rain.

South Africa last took to the field on 1 March against Pakistan at the same venue. The African side posted a score of 136/6 and managed to keep their Asian counterparts at bay – winning by 17 runs.

South African batswoman Sune Luus is averaging 74.00 at the tournament, and she could be the key in silencing the home fans.

Like Australia, South Africa have won 4 of their last 5 T20 matches.
