1st ODI - Australia vs South Africa (Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein)

Current Form Australia and South Africa:

Australia have made a clean sweep over South Africa in the T20I's. They were simply brilliant both with bat and the ball. They outplayed the hosts at important junctures of the series.

Although, South Africa didn't play their full strength squad for the T20I's and we will see the likes of Miller, Klaasen and Nortje in the ODI's, which makes South Africa a very tough squad to compete with.

Australia certainly have an upper hand going into the ODI series. They have performed very well in ODI format in the recent past. Australia had beaten India by 2-1 away from home in a 3 match ODI series and they are a strong team to reckon with.

The top run scorer for Australia in the Tour is Mitchell Marsh with 186 runs to his name.

The top wicket taker for Australia in the Tour is Sean Abbott with 8 scalps under his belt.

South Africa on the other hand are also in good touch in ODI cricket. They had beaten England in a 3 match ODI series in February this year by 2-1. South Africa have recently clean swept the touring Netherlands side by 2-0.

The top run scorer for South Africa in the Tour is Reeza Hendricks with 101 runs to his name.

The top wicket taker for South Africa in the Tour is Lizaad Williams with 4 scalps under his belt.
