South Africa and Australia are facing off in the first T20 International at Port Elizabeth. This three-match T20 International series is an ideal preparation for both sides leading up to the ICC World T20 2014 which would be held in Bangladesh later this month.

 

George Bailey leads a side that has the likes of Brad Hogg and Brad Hodge, the two old warhorses. At the same time, there are the likes of David Warner and Glenn Maxwell in the team.

 

South Africa will not be playing Dale Steyn, but once he gets back, their line-up would be much stronger for the World T20. This though, promises to be another good series a riveting encounter in the Tests.
