3 Players To Watch In AUS vs SA CWC Match 10: Australia vs South Africa will take on each other in the 10th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. Here are 3 players to watch out for in this high-profile match-up
3 Players To Watch In AUS vs SA CWC Match 10
1) Cameron Green
The 6-foot-6 Perthian is the latest in the line of world-class Aussie all-rounders. At just 24 years old, Green has emerged as a proper 3-format player for the Australian side. The right-arm pacer can bat anywhere in a batting order.
Green is yet to establish himself as a great ODI player, with his stats in the format lacking. He is, however, a solid batter and a great sixth bowling option for any side he plays.
In his young career, Cameron Green already has some experience playing in India. He scored a century in the Border-Gavaskar trophy earlier this year. He also scored 452 runs in IPL 2023 with an average of over 50 while taking six wickets in the tournament.
2) Quinton de Kock
Quinton de Kock has consistently been one of the best top-order batsmen in the world for the past decade. The opener/wicket-keeper is currently ranked seventh in the ICC ODI batsman rankings.
The spearhead of South Africa’s incredible but top-heavy batting order, de Kock has scored runs all over the world against every nation he has played against. Although he has been in average form for much of 2023, he has found some momentum and runs in a recent ODI series against Australia.

As far as his experience in India is concerned, Quinton has scored two centuries in eight ODIs in the country with an average of 47. He also has tons of experience playing in the IPL, where he has been a solid opener for Mumbai Indians and Lucknow Super Giants for years.
Among all the discussions about his batting, it is rarely mentioned that Quinton de Kock might be the best wicketkeeper in the world. His super reflexes and great agility allow him to grab every opportunity that comes his way.
3) Mitchell Starc
One of the greatest pacers of the current era, Mitchell Starc is a lethal left-arm quick who can move the ball around any way he wants. The veteran Aussie has been vital for his side whenever he is not injured. That is especially true in the World Cups, where he is a different beast.

The 33-year-old has been the highest wicket-taker in the last two World Cups. In the 2015 edition, which Australia won at home, Mitchell Starc took 22 wickets in nine matches with an average of 10.18 and was the player of the tournament. In 2019, he bettered his numbers with 27 wickets in 10 matches.
Mitchell Starc is healthy coming into the World Cup. Having played only four ODIs in 2023, he has taken nine wickets in them. This included the bilateral series in India earlier this year. He has bowled well in the warm-up matches for the World Cup, indicating that he is ready to chop down batting orders in his third consecutive World Cup.
