The world’s top-ranked T20I bowler, Tabraiz Shamsi, will feature in the Men’s T20 World Cup Super 12 opener against Australia after clearing a fitness test following a niggle earlier in the week, ESPNCricinfo reported. Shamsi was only able to send down four balls in South Africa’s warm-up match against Pakistan on Wednesday before leaving the field with a groin concern. He was assessed by the medical staff and has been given the go-ahead for Saturday’s clash.
