Faf is wary of Aussies

Centurion: South Africa captain Faf du Plessis believes Australia’s strong batting line-up will have a significant impact in the World T20, which starts in Bangladesh next week.

“They’ve got a powerhouse batting attack,” said Du Plessis, after Australia cruised to a six-wicket win over his team at the SuperSport Park, on Friday.

“Every one of their top seven or eight can take the game away from you,” said Du Plessis. “That makes them very dangerous. They also have a quality pace attack. They didn’t give us anything to hit in the first six overs. They have a very good chance of getting to the semi-finals.. They are a threat.”

Du Plessis admitted his side had performed poorly in all three disciplines. “We lost early wickets and there were mistakes by the batting unit,” he said.
