AUS vs SA Weather Report Live Today And Pitch Report Of Lucknow Stadium, ICC World Cup 2023, Match 10. Lucknow is all set to host the AUS vs SA ICC World Cup 2023 match on October 12, Thursday. It is the tenth match of the campaign, the second each for these two teams, and the first at the Ekana Stadium. The venue will host five World Cup games.

Australia lost their first game against India in Chennai. South Africa, on the other hand, won their first game against Sri Lanka in Delhi in an emphatic fashion. Pat Cummins will lead the Aussies while Temba Bavuma will lead the Proteas.

The two teams will be playing at a venue that is completely different to their natural style of play. Both teams like playing attacking cricket and have some of the best pacers around in world cricket. However, the nature of the wicket will test not only the ability of the players but also the leadership qualities of the two captains.

Australia are slightly weak with their spin options Adam Zampa is the only specialist spinner in the side with Glenn Maxwell the all-rounder being the other option. Ashton Agar has been ruled out of the tournament which has come as a big blow to the Aussies. The likes of Marnus and Smith might need to roll their arm over in Lucknow.

South Africa are a little more assured in that aspect of the game. They have Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi as the specialist spin options and Aiden Markram as the third spinner. Shamsi who did not play the game against Sri Lanka should walk into the side for one of the pacers.
