Australia and South Africa clash in the first Twenty20 International of their three-match series at Port Elizabeth on Sunday. The start of the play was delayed due to heavy rain.

Both the teams will be aiming to hone their Twenty20 International skills when they start a three-match series at St George’s Park, ahead of the ICC World T20 2014. Coming after a high-intensity Test series, a succession of 20-overs games would not normally have much more than entertainment value, but for both teams it provides an opportunity to prepare for the ICC World T20 2014, which starts in Bangladesh a week after the last match of the series.

Both squads show considerable changes from the Test teams, with new captains and new players in key roles. With fast bowling spearhead Mitchell Johnson withdrawn to enable him to rest ahead of the world event, Australia’s squad includes only three players who appeared in the Test series.

South Africa too will miss the presence of their pace spearhead Dale Steyn, who has been ruled out due to hamstring strain.
