South African team practices ahead of their ICC T20 World Cup Super Eight match against Australia in Colombo on Saturday.

 

The main worry for South Africa would be how to stop the swashbuckling Australian openers Shane Watson and David Warner, who have become the most successful pair in the T20 Internationals, from dictating terms on their bowlers.

 

The duo mercilessly sent the Indian bowlers on a leatherhunt in their side's nine-wicket mauling in their first Super Eights match last night.

 

Veteran Mike Hussey has also done his bit at one down though the marauding openers have not given him much chance to play his usual role of the 'man in crisis'.

 

The fast bowlers — Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Watson — also came through against India as they produce pace and bounce on a slowish Premadasa strip though they were expensive against the West Indies in their group match.

 

Left-arm spinner Brad Hogg has taken two wickets from the three matches he has played so far and without being expensive and he can be handful if the pitch assists slow bowlers.

 

If there is any cause of worry for the Australians, it could be their middle order batsmen as they have not been tested in the tournament since they have not got the chance in the three matches so far.
