Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: South Africa v Australia 1st ODI

South Africa and Australia have a pretty interesting head to head record with both the teams equal at 48 wins each. Out of the total 100 ODIs played between the two teams, 3 have been tied while one has ended without a result.


In the 43 ODIs hosted by South Africa, the hosts have a slightly better record with them winning 22 while Australia have won 20 matches.


The last ODI series that South Africa played was against England which they tied 1-1. The team won the first match of the series by 7 wickets with the Durban ODI was washed out due to rain. England came back to earn a narrow 2-wicket win in the final match of the series.


Australia had their last ODI assignment against India. After starting the series with a cracking 10-wicket victory, the team lost their way and conceded the series 1-2.


In the recently concluded T20I series between the two teams, South Africa came back strongly in the 2nd T20I to win by 12 runs. But, it was bookended with big defeats of 107 runs and 97 runs.


While Lutho Sipamla, Keshav Maharaj, Janneman Malan and Kyle Verreyenne are the new players that are coming into the ODI team for South Africa, Marnus Labuschagne will slot back at No. 4 for the visitors.


Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:


South Africa - Quinton de Kock (c & wk), Janneman Malan, Kyle Verreyenne, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, JJ Smuts, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi


Australia - Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Agar, Jhye Richardson/Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa



Key Players to Consider for your Fantasy Cricket Teams
