The Kangaroos have strengthened their confidence after winning the Ashes, the Test series against the Proteas and will embark on the T20s with high spirits. George Bailey will marshal the troops of the Aussies whereas Faf du Plessis and his comrades will fight for their dignity in the upcoming three matches. Both teams will enter the first T20 with courage and a tough fight is being anticipated in the opening game.
Aaron Finch loves to bat in the shortest version of the game with powerful hitting and hammered 156 off 63 mere balls against England in 2013. David Warner is in brilliant form and will be a threat again for the hosts and George Bailey knows how to score briskly whereas Mitchell Johnson has become unplayable.
The Proteas batting will revolve around their skipper, Faf du Plessis, along with AB de Villiers and the young gun, Quinton de Kock will be a tough batsman whereas Wayne Parnell can stop the flow of runs.
