South African skipper Temba Bavuma's struggles continued as he succumbed to a duck against Australia. Bavuma, who has been facing a slump in form throughout the World Cup 2023 tournament, faced a formidable challenge against the Australian pace attack.

Opting to bat first, Bavuma's Proteas faced an early setback in the very first over of the match. Mitchell Starc, the Australian pacer, delivered a blazing performance, consistently maintaining a challenging length and building pressure on the South African captain. The culmination of this pressure came on the last ball of the over when Bavuma attempted a connection but found himself caught behind, departing for a duck.

Australian fans were elated as Starc provided them with an early breakthrough, dismissing the opposition captain within the first over. The delivery outside off induced a regulation outside edge, and wicketkeeper Josh Inglis secured a good low catch.

As of the current update, South Africa, having won the toss and chosen to bat, finds themselves at 4 for 1 in 3 overs. The outcome of this high-stakes match will determine the finalist who will face hosts India in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 final in Ahmedabad on November 19.
