Australia have not been at their best in the shortest format, off late. Since January, they lost 4 out of the last 6 T20Is Down Under against India and New Zealand. However, captain Meg Lanning’s women displayed a remarkable performance against the West Indies Women in a warm-up match, winning by 43 runs. Though the results in January may not have gone Australia’s way, warm-up contest was an ideal preparation for them. On the other hand, South Africa defeated West Indies in a T20I series at home and are brimming with confidence. If we go by Nagpur track that hosted men’s opener between India and New Zealand, both teams will prefer more spinners than pacers in the squad.
