Remember, not only do they have to win this game but also expect South Africa to beat Australia. In this scenario, the team will end at the top of the points table and will get to face New Zealand in the second semi-final.
The Kiwis have suffered three losses on the bounce and are looking completely out of sorts. At the same time, Sri Lanka will want to end their World Cup campaign on a high, with a win in their last match.
India have been missing the services of Shikhar Dhawan who had earlier been ruled out of the World Cup due to a broken thumb.
KL Rahul will continue to open the batting along with Rohit Sharma, unless Mayank Agrawal is given a nod, which seems unlikely. Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya provide firepower to the team in the middle order.
It is expected that all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will be given a chance and will bat at number seven. If the team actually wants an extra batsman at seven, it makes sense to pick Jadeja ahead of Kedar Jadhav or Dinesh Karthik, as he can provide some overs and is electric in the field.
Lasith Malinga will continue to lead their bowling attack. Both England and India are looking good and the Aussies would not be eager to face either of them in the semis. On the contrary, New Zealand have looked a shadow of themselves and have lost momentum towards the business end of the tournament, when it matters the most.
At the cost of exaggeration, winning this game will be winning half the semi-final for Australia. Australia's opening pair of Aaron Finch and David Warner has been sensational as both have already scored more than runs.
Usman Khawaja has also chipped in with a couple of half-centuries and Steve Smith has been consistent as always. Alex Carey has been the surprise package and has bailed the Aussies out of trouble multiple times.
The addition of Jason Behrendorff has provided an edge to Australia. Behrendorff takes the new ball along with Mitchell Starc, which allows Pat Cummins to come is as the first change. Nathan Lyon will be picked ahead of Adam Zampa as the first choice spinner.
Australia have called in Peter Handscomb as a replacement for Shaun Marsh, who has been ruled out of the World Cup with a fractured hand. South Africa will look towards the experienced duo of Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis to put some big runs on the board.
Kagiso Rabada and Imran Tahir will lead the Protea bowling attack.
