Handscomb on the radar

Shaun Marsh's premature exit from the World Cup has opened gates for Peter Handscomb, who would have considered himself very unlucky to have missed out from the squad in the first place.

Glenn Maxwell, the big show, as everyone calls him hasn't really been performing well in this World Cup. Adding Handscomb in place of Maxwell will surely give Australia a better look at their middle order. Other than this, Australia could possibly rest a couple of their top bowlers.

Last match for several senior Proteas

South Africa has been disappointing in this tournament and no one would have imagined their downfall prior to the tournament.

According to the Cricbuzz report, the Proteas skipper Faf Du Plessis has said that they could play the same side which defeated Sri Lanka last week. This could be the last match for several senior players like Imran Tahir, JP Duminy, Hashim Amla and maybe the captain himself.

"Once you cross the rope, Australia are my favourite team to play against."Faf du Plessis said on the eve of the match, according to Cricbuzz.

South Africa put in a solid display against Sri Lanka, winning by nine wickets, so they may go with the same squad.

Pitch report

The Manchester pitch is good batting without a doubt, but with no action on it for some time now it could have got slower. Spinners could come into play and but still another high-scoring match is on the cards. The weather is expected to be good with no hindrance of rain whatsoever.
