Australia Legends will take on South Africa Legends in the 15th match of the Road Safety World Series T20 2022. Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun will host this exciting encounter on Friday, September 23.

Australia Legends got off to a losing start to the competition. They lost their opening game against Sri Lanka Legends but bounced back to win their next game against Bangladesh Legends. It was a nail-biting contest.

Bowling first, the Australian bowlers did a decent job of restricting Bangladesh Legends to 158 at the end of their 20 overs. In response, they had a shaky start, but Brad Haddin played a blinder of a knock and remained unbeaten on 58 off just 37 balls to take his side across the line on the last ball. They will look to carry forward the winning momentum.

South Africa Legends, on the other hand, have managed to win only a single game out of four, with one being washed out due to rain. They faced Sri Lanka Legends in their last game and suffered a loss. It was a close-fought contest.

Garnett Kruger picked up two wickets as it helped the Proteas restrict the Lankan side to 165/6. Morne van Wyk looked good for his 76 at the top of the order but lacked support from the other end. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals and eventually fell short by 11 runs.

Australia Legends

Shane Watson’s side got their first win in the 2022 Road Safety World Series in Match 11 on Sunday when they beat Bangladesh by three wickets. They reached their target of 159 with a four from the final ball and 21 runs from the final over of the game.

AU-L Batting

Eight bowlers were used across the 20 overs of Bangladesh’s innings with spinner Brad Hodge the only bowler not to take a wicket. Shane Watson and Bryce McGain were the only bowlers to deliver four overs but it was Dirk Nannes with the best figures, 1-2 from two overs.

AU-L Bowling

It was very hard going for the Australia Legends’ bowling attack in Kanpur with only Brett Lee making one breakthrough across their 20 overs in the field. Dirk Nannes and Chad Sayers were the only bowlers to concede less than 10 runs per over in the defeat against Sri Lanka Legends.

South Africa Legends 

With three points from four games, South Africa Legends are in fifth place in the 2022 Road Safety World Series. They were well beaten by India Legends in the opening match of the tournament but responded with a nine-wicket win over New Zealand Legends. Their game with England Legends was then abandoned before losing to Sri Lanka.

SA-L Batting

Morne van Wyk is one of only four players to have scored over 100 runs in the tournament so far. He began with 40 runs across his opening two games before hitting a very impressive 76 runs from 56 balls against Sri Lanka Legends. Vernon Philander was the only other South African to hit a six in the defeat in Match 10.

SA-L Bowling

Garnett Kruger took 2-43 from his four overs against Sri Lanka Legends but it was spinner Johan Botha and pace bowler Vernon Philander who both took 1-18 with Botha’s figures from four overs and Philander’s from three. Thandi Tshabalala took 3-9 in the win over New Zealand Legends.

Australia Legends vs South Africa Legends Match Prediction

Australia Legends will be riding with confidence after their last ball win in their last game. South Africa Legends are coming off a loss in their previous fixture and will have to be on their toes to challenge the upbeat Aussies.

Australia Legends have a good balance to their side and expect them to come out on top on Friday.

Prediction: Australia Legends to win this encounter.
