AUS SA LIVE Score: WTC Finals chase on, Australia host SouthAfrica for 1st Test at Fortress Gabba, match kicks off at 5:50 AM IST – Follow AUS vs SA LIVE Updates
AUS vs SA LIVE: Australia are in a good mood after crushing the West Indies in the two-match test series, but they are facing a little better squad in South Africa this time. Australia have essentially assured their place in the WTC finals next year, and South Africa are one of the top candidates to make the WTC finals. Australia wouldn’t want to take anything for granted as they have an even tougher series against India coming up.
To have a chance of making it to the WTC final, South Africa must at least win one test in this series. In the current WTC cycle, they have been the standout bowling squad, but their batting has been, to put it mildly, atrocious. If they are to challenge in this series, they will need their captain Dean Elgar to have a strong series. At this time, their batting is inexperienced. For the Proteas, the series will be difficult.
Match: Australia vs South Africa, 1st Test
Date & Time: December 17-21, 5:50 AM
Venue: Gabba, Brisbane
Live Streaming: Sony Sports Network
AUS vs SA Pitch Report
The Gabba pitch will be a test for the batsmen. The curators have left a lot of grass on the surface and the seamers will be in for a long haul. Teams generally bat first owing to the threat of pace and swing. 300 is the average first innings score here.
