South African T20 captain Faf du Plessis was disappointed with the line and lengths his bowlers bowled and also rued some bad shots his batsmen played in their five wicket loss to Australia in the rain-curtailed seven an over side.

 

“They’ve got a powerhouse batting attack,” said Du Plessis after Australia cruised to a six-wicket win over his team at SuperSport Park on Friday on the eve of the departure of both teams for the world event.

 

“Every one of their top seven or eight can take the game away from you,” said Du Plessis. “That makes them very dangerous. They’ve also good quality fast bowling. They didn’t give us anything to hit in the first six overs. They have a very good chance of getting to the semi-finals.”
