Australia and South Africa are set to cross swords in Match 10 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 at Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium on Thursday, October 12.
Australia experienced an early setback as they succumbed to a 6-wicket defeat against India in their tournament opener on last Sunday. Meanwhile, South Africa had a strong start to their World Cup campaign, securing a commanding 102-run victory over Sri Lanka.
As the upcoming clash beckons, the Aussies will be determined to stage a strong comeback, rekindling their winning spirit after the initial setback.
On the other hand, the Proteas will be resolute in their aim to sustain the momentum of their early triumph.
