South Africa vs Australia Tips

Australia won the first ODI but both sides struggled for periods, especially with the bat. I am going to stick with the hosts to win while Marnus Labuschagne and Temba Bavuma are backed to score big.

Head to Head

South Africa have won five of their last six ODI fixtures against Australia. The first match of this series the Aussies cruised to a three-wicket win.

South Africa Form

South Africa will be disappointed with their overall performance in the first ODI in Bloemfontein.

Batting first, the hosts could only post 222 runs. Temba Bavuma continued his superb ODI form, holding the innings together with a magnificent 114*. No other batsmen managed more than 40 runs.

Despite the disappointing total, the Proteas took control with the ball, reducing Australia to 72-5 and 113-7. Unfortunately, they slacked thereafter and allowed the Aussies to get home for the win.

South Africa Team News

South Africa will most likely rotate especially among the bowlers.

Australia Form

Australia won the first ODI and while they were far from perfect, they did enough to take the opening win of the series.

Josh Hazelwood took 3-43 as Australia reduced South Africa to a below par total of 222 runs. The batting didn’t go so well initially as four of the top six were dismissed for under 10. The two who weren’t only scored 33 and 17 runs.

However, Marnus Labuschagne (80*) and Ashton Agar (48*) put on a superb 109-run partnership to steer Australia home.

Australia Team News

Australia, like the hosts, will most likely make changes throughout the series.


I am backing South Africa to level the series with Temba Bavuma to top score.

For Australia, Marnus Labuschagne is backed to top score.
