I’m going to back the hosts to win the first ODI against the odds.

  • South Africa have won their last 5 ODIs against Australia.
  • South Africa have won their last 3 ODIs.
  • South Africa’s Aiden Markram scored 175 runs in his last ODI match.
  • Australia have won 2 of their last 3 ODI matches.

Head to Head


South Africa have won their last five ODI fixtures against Australia. They last met in 2020 when the Proteas won by 26 runs.

South Africa Form


South Africa are under some pressure coming into this series against Australia. With the ODI World Cup a month away, the Proteas need to find some form in these next three games.

In the T20I series against the Aussies, South Africa comfortably lost all three matches. In the final game, they put up some fight, but it was nowhere near good enough to beat Australia.

South Africa Team News


While the Proteas blooded some young players in the T20I series, they are back to full strength for the ODIs. They have also announced their World Cup squad so the players in that squad are the most likely to feature.

Australia Form


Australia won their most recent ODI series 2-1 against India away. It was an impressive series success considering they had to come from 1-0 down.

It wasn’t the highest scoring of the series, which is quite strange for India. However, the Aussies will be confident considering the World Cup is in India this year.

This series against South Africa will be used to fine-tune a few things ahead of the big tournament.

Australia Team News


Australia have also announced their World Cup squad. Sean Abbott was included and is likely to feature during this series. Glenn Maxwell is still suffering from an ankle injury.

Verdict

South Africa are tipped to win with Aidan Markram to top score.
