SA Vs AUS Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Teetering South Africa make a strong claim towards revival after wrapping the ODI series.
Embroiled in a contentious mess and in the midst of one of their worst sorties in the cricketing arena, when South Africa took on Australia in the ongoing three match ODI series between the two sides, not many had given them a chance to come out unscathed from the series. However, the hosts who have flourished against the Australians against the last couple of years managed to silence their doubters to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
Defeating Australia by 6 wickets the last time around, South Africa extended their dominance over Australia to 10 wins in the last 11 ODIs between the two countries. What has immensely impressed from the African country is not only the fact that they have downed a way superior opposition but rather the manner in which those wins have come about.
Where for South Africa, this series win has been a massive shot in the arm to bridge the gap between them and the best countries in the arena at the moment, for Australia, the results have been immensely dejecting. They have been comprehensively outplayed across both the last couple of clashes and will be looking to unlock their true potential come the concluding ODI today.
Across the length of the series, the biggest plight for Australia has been on how to come to terms with the conditions prevelant in the country. The side has been caught unaware of when to accelerate its innings, a predicament which should come in play today as well to see South Africa sweep the series.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A surface where the norm has been to bat first with the wicket regressing as the tie runs down its course, this is surface which will see an even contest between the bat and ball. The spinners will flourish in the second part with clean strokeplay still being accorded with respect by the wicket.

SA Vs AUS Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Be it the T20 or ODI series, South Africa’s captain Quinton de Kock has failed to understand how to square up against Mitchell Starc. However, with the pacer out of today’s tie, the home side’s opener should be back operating to his best and pull off a massive knock to justify why he’s been the side’s best bat ever since being handed over charge of the side.
SA Vs AUS Dream11 Batsmen
While Henrich Klaasen’s ample skill set was in clear sights for everyone, why South Africa failed to hand him over a regular spot in their playing 11 was always a beleaguering question. However, we was finally accorded an elusive chance in this series and has taken the opportunity accorded to him with both hands with two match winning innings till now.
The 51 runs he struck the last time around saw him partake in an 81 run stand for the third wicket alongside opener Janneman Malan was remained unbeaten on 129 to take his side past the finishing. From Australia meanwhile we’ll be beginning with Steve Smith after he scored a half-century in the series opener.
With 69 runs in the second tie, captain Aaron Finch comes in as well from the side along with the second opener David Warner as we opt for an entire trio of selections from Australia’s contingent for the day.
SA Vs AUS Dream11 All-Rounders
Had it not been for D’Arcy Short’s 69 run knock in the bygone affair, Australia wouldn’t have been able to launch themselves to a competitive enough score. He came on to not only hold fort in the middle period but also string together crucial partnerships to make him our selection from the contingent. He is joined by the veteran Australian All Rounder M Marsh.
SA Vs AUS Dream11 Bowling Order
Where Quinton has single handidly decided to act as the side’s talisman in the batting order, the bowling unit has been bolstered by quick A Nortje. He has 12 wickets till now in 6 matches, disrupting Australia’s effort with the bat with his ominous line and length leaving the side in complete disarray.
From Australia meanwhile, with four wickets in the first ODI, Pat Cummins comes in for us alongside A Zampa who looks set to be quite the trump card for the host.
Captain And Vice-Captain
South Africa Bat First: Smith’s ability to score runs on any surface see us make him our captain while Quinton is our vice-captain.
Australia Bat First: Klaasen will captain our side while Finch is the vice-captain.
