    SA vs AUS Semi-Final Live Score: Here’s what Pat Cummins said at the toss

    We would have batted first as well. They play pretty similar style, unfortunately they have won a last few, we are due. We have been in these positions before. We have a lot of experience.

    “There’s 36% chance of rain. 65 m square boundaries, 75 m straight boundaries. This is the same wicket that was used for England – Pakistan match. Spinners have had a good time bowling here. Spin will win, reckons Hayden. Going to be tough to score runs as the spinners will get more assistance in the second innings. Captain winning the toss should bat first despite the overcast conditions,” reckons Pommie Mbangwa.

    SA vs AUS Semi-Final Live Score: A fiery Australian team

    When it comes to the 50-over World Cup, Australia evoke a sense of fear and anxiety among their rivals, having won five of the 12 titles so far — of which four have come in the last six editions — as they are known for thriving in big moments. It’s been the opposite story for South Africa who have reached the semi-finals four times from nine editions, but it’s always been a tale of being so-near-yet-so-far. Be it the rain-rule mis-calculation on their debut World Cup in 1992 semifinal against England, or the tied result in 1999 that helped Australia made the final on better run-rate, the Proteas for one reason or another have never able to progress beyond the last-four stage.

    SA vs AUS Semi-Final Live Score: Chance for SA to remove the chokers’ tag

    Temba Bavuma’s warriors would be determined to shed their eternal chokers tag against five-time champions Australia. Any South African cricketer worth his salt hates the ‘C’ word while Australia as legacy champions of the ODI global meet would like to rub it in, in the best possible manner they can.
