T20 WC: Aus win toss, elect to bowl first against SA

Australia captain Aaron Finch has won the toss and elected to bowl first against South Africa in a Group 1 match of Super 12 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here on Saturday.

After winning the toss, Finch said: “Looks like a good wicket, can’t see things changing a lot during the course of the game. We have a lot of experience on the side, we haven’t played as a group, but we’re looking forward to this tournament. Tough selection choices, but Ashton Agar, Kane Richardson, Josh Inglis, and Mitch Swepson miss out”. South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma said: “It’s been a privilege to lead the team in the tournament. Two spinners, KG, Nortje, an all-rounder and an extra batsman in Klassen. We are coming off with some real momentum—we have confidence in our team and we’ll look to do well”.
