The middle-order players mainly, Aiden Markram, Henrich Klassen, and David Miller are the main strengths, and they strike above 100.

In the bowling line, they have the best pacers who will be the biggest strength of this match on this pitch.

In this match, Australia’s best bowlers will be the biggest threat as this is a bowling pitch. AUS bowlers are top bowlers who will give a tough time to team South Africa.
