South Africa will end their dismal campaign against Australia at Old Trafford on Saturday, while their opponents have already sealed their semi-final place with seven wins from their eight games.

Australia captain Aaron Finch insisted there will be no let-up in the intensity of the champions" training sessions at the World Cup after "friendly fire' ended batsman Shaun Marsh's involvement in the tournament. There is much more at stake than this just being a dead rubber for Australia. "I think they are probably better, not - I won't say people - but if you can look at them now you can see as a team, obviously, the Australian culture looks like it's really good, so they have learnt from that and they have made themselves stronger for it". They need to win this match to ensure they face New Zealand in the first semifinal of CWC.

No sooner had Maxwell been escorted away by medical staff after going down in pain when a rising delivery from Starc, the tournament's leading wicket-taker, reared up and hit him on the right forearm, than Marsh, batting in the same net, was struck on the wrist by Cummins.

Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins have been fiery with the ball not just for the opposition but also their own teammates.

Time: 6:00 pm (IST) South Africa, on the other hand, will like to forget what has conspired for them in this edition of the showpiece event and play for pride against the mighty Aussies.

But it is Brendan Rodgers' Leicester who have jumped to the head of the queue, and a surprise move will now be completed in the coming days.

South Africa: Fad du Plessis (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, JP Duminy, David Miller, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabrais Shamsi, Dwaine Pretorius and Beuran Hendricks.

Two of world cricket's heavyweights have had strikingly contrasting tournaments, with Australia losing just the one match against India and winning seven.

Australia, for all they have won a record five World Cups, were not among the favourites coming into this edition, with some pundits arguing their "old-fashioned" approach was ill-suited to modern one-day internationals where scores of around 400 are increasingly commonplace. "As I said back then, and I will say it now, I believe we are pretty low-key team when it comes to verbals", he said.

Tahir will be hoping he cannot only bring his trademark celebrations but also some success with the ball. "It was always my dream to play global cricket and I'm really grateful to everyone who helped me along on the way". As for whether their careers would be known for ball-tampering above all else, Du Plessis said: "Whether the game will remember them for that, I don't think so".

"When you've got a lot of guys who can field in a lot of different positions, that inner circle becomes really crucial".
