Two eternal foes South Africa and Australia will face each other on July 6 at Headingley, Leeds. Once upon a time, their rivalries were great to watch and gave cricket fans a huge joy. The match between Australia and South Africa back in 1999 World Cup semifinals considers as one of the greatest match ever in World Cup history. Things have changed now. While Australia, the reigning champions are still very much in the business, South Africa lost their path completely and can only remind of their glorious past.

South African stars who can resist Australia to rule over them

Australia will face South Africa in Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester on July 6, 2019. Australia is the first team who booked their place for semi-finals and look favorite to retain the cricket’s most prestigious trophy. If we consider their professionalism, there’s very little chance they will not take this game lightly. However, South Africa could also be motivated when they will see their old enemy. Here, we want to discuss the Proteus players who can resist Australia to humiliate them.

  • Hashim Amla

Hashim Amla is the most reliable and experienced player for South Africa can count on against mighty Australia. It’s clear that he’s not at his best anymore and age is slowing him down gradually. But, he can still prove his decisiveness against the Aussies. The only problem is his readiness. Latest news emerges as Hashim Amla is not fully fit as he reportedly hurting his knees at training and there’s much speculation whether he will start against them or not.

Hashim Amla is doubtful whether he will start or not but if he starts he could possess a big danger for Australia
  • Quinton de Kock

Quinton de Kock always hailed as one of South Africa’s match-winner and he has the capability to take away the game from the opponent. However, he is very inconsistent throughout the World Cup and its a huge doubt whether he can sign off the tournament with a good vibe by outplaying their old enemy.

Quinton de Kock is inconsistent throughout the tournament so it will be interesting whether he could end up a positive note or not.
  • Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada is one of the players of South Africa whom Australia admire greatly. His past records against Kangaroos are very well and he can prove another time that they have the capability to outshine their super opponents. If he can out Australia’s two openers early, Kangaroos will be in trouble for sure.

Kagiso Rabada has a good record against Australia and he has the chance to extend it again.

Yes, it’s true that South Africa has some quality players to play but not even the most admirer of the Proteus won’t believe they can outshine Australia. It seems to be a one-sided game as both teams have a huge gap between them in terms of quality. Australia will go as favorites and have every capability to hammer the Proteus.
