Australia hasn't won any series since their T20I tri-series victory earlier this year in February and will now look to return on winning ways when they take on South Africa in one-off the T20I match at Carrara Oval in Queensland.
Australian batting line-up was clueless against the top quality bowling of South Africa in the just-concluded ODI series and they'll be tested for one more time.
