This is one of the most glamorous contests in the world of Cricket. South Africa and Australia have long been known for their never-say-die approach which makes their tussles better than most. Both teams renew their rivalry in South Africa with the five match ODI series set to start on Friday, September 30.

South Africa are currently in the midst of racial transformation with quota rules set to come into vogue. Though it would take time to be implemented fully, it would be interesting to see if it has any impact on the selection. Their talismanic captain AB de Villiers will be missing the entire series owing to an injury and that in itself is a huge blow.

Dale Steyn is back to full fitness and his partnership with heir-apparent Kagiso Rabada will be one to watch out for. Faf du Plessis will hope that Wuinton de Kock continues his recent purple watch, while JP Duminty will be expected to fill the role of an all-rounder.

Australia have no worries with their batting with David Warner and Steve Smith expected to lead the charge. George Bailey is one of the most underrated batsmen in this format and has proven time and again how valuable he is to this Australian outfit.

The biggest worry for the Aussies would be in the bowling department with Mitchell Starc missing in action and just John Hastings remaining as a potent pace bowling option. But the presence of Adam Zampa makes it interesting considering the perennial struggles of the Proteas against quality spin.

South Africa have won five of their last six series at home and are huge favorites to romp home once again. But the absence of AB tilts the scales slightly in favor of the visitors, although their bowling unit is barren. There isn’t much value on choosing a winner, though, with all punters expecting a close series. Back Australia to win 3-2.
