South Africa vs Australia Today Match Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the SA vs AUS Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. South Africa host Australia in the 1st T20I of this 3-match T20I series in Durban.

Mitchell Marsh has been appointed as the new T20I captain of Australia after former skipper Aaron Finch called it quits from international cricket after the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

Marsh has previously captained the Under-19 team of Australia in the Under-19 World Cup and would be confident ahead of this fixture.

This is a good opportunity for South Africa to get enough match experience under their belt ahead of the much-awaited ICC ODI World Cup 2023, which will be held in India.

South Africa however, had their last T20I series. They had played against West Indies in a 3-match T20I series in March and had lost that series, 1-2.
