South Africa captain Faf du Plessis believes Australia's strong batting line-up will have a significant impact in the World Twenty20 which starts in Bangladesh Sunday.
"They've got a powerhouse batting attack," said du Plessis. "Every one of their top seven or eight can take the game away from you.
"That makes them very dangerous. They've also good quality fast bowling. They didn't give us anything to hit in the first six overs. They have a very good chance of getting to the semifinals."
Australia's fast bowler Mitchell Starc said their Twenty20 squad had made the most of their two weeks in South Africa, despite rain washing out one match and reducing another to seven overs a side.
