That means they will face New Zealand in the semi-finals and given the Ki-wis have collapsed in confidence and form, it could be pretty close to a bye.</p><p>Rather unexpectedly, the Aussies have emerged as the only side without a considerable weak-ness in the last four. They have batted and bowled with nous. And we’re nitpicking if we go overboard on their lack of acceleration with the bat. England and India have both had their problems.</p><p>The Aussies have been fired by opening pair David Warner and Aaron Finch, who are hunt-ing down Rohit Sharma for that No 1 spot. They’re also involved in a fascinating battle for top Australian bat with nothing between them.</p><p>Warner is the only one of the two, though, who is a wrong price for the individual innings here. On two-year data he should be shorter than 3.75 (11/4). We have him winning at a rate more in line with 3.5 (5/2). It’s not a huge edge but it’s one which we be foolish to ignore.</p><p>There’s even a chance that he will relish the chance to get back at South Africa after he was banned for tampering with the ball against them.</p><p><strong>Best Bet</strong></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Back David Warner top Australia bat 3.75 Betfair</strong></a></p></div>
