Centurion, South Africa: South African captain Faf du Plessis believes Australia's strong batting line-up will have a significant impact in the World Twenty20 which starts in Bangladesh next week.

"They've got a powerhouse batting attack," said Du Plessis after Australia cruised to a six-wicket win over his team at SuperSport Park on Friday on the eve of the departure of both teams for the world event.

"Every one of their top seven or eight can take the game away from you," said Du Plessis. "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 semi-finals."
