After a memorable first semifinal show in Mumbai, two mighty cricket sides Australia and South Africa are set to clash in the second semi-final match of the World Cup 2023 at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens on Thursday, November 16. Both teams enter the final having won seven group-stage games each and will be looking to produce another entertaining clash for the fans.
The Proteas are still chasing their maiden World Cup final while the five-time champions Australia face no pressure of knockout talk. South Africa finished above Australia in the points table due to a superior net run rate but the latter have momentum with them with seven consecutive wins in this World Cup.
Temba Bavuma’s side will be looking to take positive morale from their recent head-to-head record against Pat Cummins-led side. They beat Australia in the group-stage game by 134 runs and have won 15 of the last 18 ODI encounters to enter this semi-final as favourites.
