Abu Dhabi: Aiden Markram scored 40 runs in front of a tough Aussie bowling as South Africa scored 118 runs for the loss of nine wickets in their opening match of the World T20 here on Saturday.

Aiden Markram  hammered three boundaries and a six in his 36-ball knock to keep South African innings past the 100-run mark while the batting lineup kept on collapsing on the other end.

Kagiso Rabada remained unbeaten at 19.

David Miller added 16 runs with his willow.

Australian bowlers dominated the proceedings and kept the opponents under control.

Mitchell Starc,  Josh Hazlewood and  Adam Zampa added two wickets each.
