Australia started the World Cup with a big win

Light grass over some parts of the wicket, some places are completely bald. It was a fairly bowling wicket. The spinners also got the same benefits as the pacers. The South African batsmen could not take advantage of such wickets. Their innings was reduced to a few runs. Not so in the case of Australia. He made only 51 runs for three wickets in the first 10 overs. However, Steven Smith settled the wicket and made the match easier. Ajira started the World Cup by winning by five wickets.

After losing the toss at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, South Africa lost 9 wickets in the allotted overs and scored 116 runs. Starc, Hazlewood and Adam Jumpa took two wickets each. With two balls left in the allotted over, Ajira reached the port of victory. Smith gave a great innings of 35 runs with the bat.

Australia did not have a good start chasing small goals. They lost two openers, Aaron Finch and David Warner, for just 26 runs in the first power play. Enrich Nortz returned Finch for 4 runs and Rabada returned Warner for 20 runs. Mitchell Marsh (11) was caught by Rasi van der Dussen by Keshav Maharaj.

Glenn Maxwell led the team with a fourth-wicket partnership with Steven Smith. The pair's 42-run stand was stopped by Aiden Markram's great catch. Nortz hit 35 off 34 balls at three boundaries. Tabriz Shamsi returned another set batsman Maxwell in the next over. He made 18 runs off 21 balls before returning to bowl.

Towards the end, Ajira pulled out the match with great resistance from Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis. Eight runs were needed in the last over. Australia won with two balls to spare.

Earlier, two openers Quinton de Kock and Temba Babuma came to bat after losing the toss. Mitchell Starc, who came to bowl in the first over, scored 11 runs. Australia changed their bowling and started attacking with Glenn Maxwell. That is the success. The spinner returned Babuma, who hit two boundaries to Starc, to the dressing room. He scored 12 runs off 8 balls in two boundaries.

Joss Hazlewood returned the new batsman Rossi van der Dussen to the dressing room in the third over of the innings. He made his way to the pavilion with just two runs. In his next over, Hazlewood returned another opener, De Kock, to the dressing room. Going to scoop the ball, this batsman who bowled 6 runs from 12 balls was directly bowled. After losing three wickets, only 29 runs came in the power play.

The Proteas could not prolong the fourth wicket partnership. Heinrich Klaassen returned with a 23-run partnership with Aiden Markram. Cummins returned Klaassen, who made 13 off the last ball in his second over. Markram made another partnership of 34 runs with David Miller who came in the fifth. Adam Jampa returned Miller for the team's 60 runs. The Proteas then lost wickets at regular intervals. Markram also fell victim to 40 off 34 balls during the team's disaster.

None of the last batsmen touched two figures except Kagiso Rabada. Rabada's unbeaten 19 off 23 balls helped South Africa reach 118 for nine.
