ABOUT THE MATCH

It has been 21 months since Australia won an ODI series while South Africa have won their last 2 on the trot. So this is going to be an interesting contest as Australia have home advantage while the visitors are high on form.

Match Preview

There have been 96 ODI meetings between the two sides, with South Africa winning 45 and Australia winning 47. 3 matches have ended in a tie while one ended without a result. The last time they met was during Australia’s tour of South Africa in 2016 where South Africa registered a 5-0 whitewash.

iconAustralia Team News

Australia are in crisis mode in ODIs, having lost 16 of their last 18 completed matches. The last 6 defeats have come on the trot. With Tim Paine dropped from the squad, Aaron Finch will be skipper. He will rely on Chris Lynn, Travis Head and Shaun Marsh for runs.

They will be boosted by the return of pacers Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins. The duo will look to attack the South African batsmen along with Mitchell Starc.

iconSouth Africa Team News

The visitors have been hit with injuries with Hashim Amla, JP Duminy and Wiaan Mulder ruled out. This means that South Africa will have as many as 6 players travelling to Australia for the first time.

But they have batting experience in the form of Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis. Their bowling trio will be Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi. Spinner Imran Tahir will be the one to watch out for.
