Despite displaying underwhelming performances during the past games, South Africa did an impressive job in holding Australia’s win during the second ODI as they won by 12 runs last time 158/4 (20.0) 158 – 146/6 (20.0) 146. They managed to bag the win in the presence of a powerhouse squad deployed last time. Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi did an incredible job last time as they were the ones who played a role in bagging the win with a fine bowling by Proteas’ bowlers rendered the Aussies 12-run short. However, the improvement remain slow in some aspect and they seem to rely much on Quinton de Kock that resulting to a batting collapse. They will head to this match without the service of Dale Steyn, while Heinrich Klaasen and Temba Bavuma are out injured.
Possible XI: Quinton de Kock (c & wk), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis, Pite van Biljon, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi
India broke Australia’s run of 11 straight wins in completed games across the formats in January that started their negative fallout. They only have 2 wins in their last 5 matches and lost 3 including the second ODI. Meanwhile, that lost in the second round broke their 8 completed games unbeaten in T20Is which began in February of last year. Glenn Maxwell’s remain doubtful but his return will certainly strengthen Australia’s middle-order. Aaron Finch, David Warner, and Steve Smith has been fantastic in the top-order, but still not enough to hold the clinical South Africa last time. If the likes of Alex Carey, Matthew Wade, and Mitchell Marsh will be field in the middle-order, it will definitely strengthen their position.
Possible XI: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steven Smith, Matthew Wade, Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa
