South Africa and Australia will flag off their preparations for the ICC World T20 by playing a 3 match series in South Africa. Both the sides will go into the series with a goal of trying their best combinations and giving all their players a go before the main event. Australia look the more worried side, as their recent form has been simply poor.

Australian skipper Steve Smith said that Dale Steyn would remain a threat for Australia even in the shortest format. “No doubt Dale Steyn is a quality bowler and has been for a long time now.

It’s just about summing up what he brings on the day,” Smith said. “T20 cricket is about being positive early and we’ve got a few players who can go out and get some runs against him. He generally bowls in the first six overs and when you’ve got two fielders out, you’ve got to make the most of that. You’ve got to be nice and positive. That’s the way our batters play at the top anyway.”

Smith’s counterpart Faf Du Plessis mentioned that he would try out all his players in the series. “We’re looking to give everyone a go in this series. That means trying all the combinations – Quinny and AB or Hash and AB. Both have done really well, they’re both in good form. I don’t see it as a problem,” du Plessis said.

“We’ve planned for two years for this World Cup so to start changing those plans a week before the World Cup is not for me; I’m not that kind of guy. I’ve tried to make sure that everyone in the team nails down their roles and repeatedly get chances and chances and chances so they get better in that role,” du Plessis added.
