Team Australia Analysis
After thrashing South Africa in T20 series by 2-1 they will look to repeat their performance in the ODI series as well. Last time they played an ODI series they lost the series by 1-2 which was against India. For this series, they had made few changes to their team. Jhye Richardson, Marnus Labuschagne, DArcy Short and Josh Hazlewood have been called up that is purely on the basis of their current performances. Skipper Aaron Finch will try to go with the best combination for his team.
Aaron Finch and David Warner will definitely open the innings for them. Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey will form the strong middle order for Australia. Ashton Agar and Mithcell Marsh will definitely get another chance to fix their spot in the team as all-rounders. Adam Zampa will be their key spinner as he did really well for his team in recent times. Mitchel Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood will be their key fast bowlers. Jhye Richardson and Kane Richardson might get a chance in 2nd or 3rd ODI depending upon the team’s performance.
Team South Africa Analysis
South Africa has been struggling since the retirement of their best players like Ab Devilliers, Hashim Amla, Jacque Kallis. Since then they have tried so many combinations but nothing had improved. After losing back to back T20 series against England and Australia they have the opportunity to showcase their class in the ODI series against Australia. In the 3 matches ODI series against England, they shared the trophy with 1-1. For this series, some of their good players have been ruled out which is a huge blow for them. Reeza Hendricks, Rassie Van der Dussen and Faf Du Plessis are out from the team.
Coach Mark Boucher and Skipper Quinton De Kock are still searching for their best playing XI. With Quinton de Kock, Janneman Malan will likely to open. Henrich Klaasen, David Miller, J J Smut and Temba Bavuma will fill the void of the middle order. Andile Phelukwayo will be their key allrounder. They have picked up Keshav Maharaj as a front line spinner but he will have to wait as Tabraiz Shamsi is doing well with the ball and he will definitely be in the team. Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Beuran Hendricks will be their key fast bowlers for this match.
