Australia got off to a bad start, losing to India by six wickets. It was a different story for South Africa though, with the Proteas running out winners over Sri Lanka by 102 runs.

Australia to put India loss behind them

Australia may not have got off to the desired start, with their loss to India, but they still remain among the frontrunners for the competition, with a wealth of talent at the crease. South Africa picked up a handy victory over Sri Lanka but their squad doesn’t match the depth available to Andrew McDonald and his side.

Australia had four batsman that achieved 25, or more, runs against India, including Labuschagne. The big hitting batsman could be the man to shine against South Africa and, at odds of 5/1, represents real value when looking at who could finish as Top Australia batsman.
