Australia Cricket Betting

In many ways, the first ODI between South Africa and Australia played out as expected. Quinton de Kock rolled the rookie Aussie attack with such ease that they won with plenty to spare. That should be an ideal backdrop for the second ODI between these top sides at the Wanderers, Johannesburg on Sunday, October 2.

The hosts made a mockery of the absence of AB de Villiers with De Kock running riot with his batting. The young keeper is one of the most consistent century-making openers in the last three years and he proved it at the Centurion. Of course, Australia would be well prepared but stand-in captain Faf du Plessis would love an encore from his ‘keeper.

With the ball though, the Proteas were inconsistent, their length of which almost played into the hands of the Aussies. The experienced trio of Steyn, Rabada and Parnell were off-color while Andile Phehlukwayo was the star with four wickets. Steyn’s best is yet to come – an ominous sign for the visitors.

The Aussies were cavalier with the bat, which saw them lose five wickets in quick succession – mostly due to their own mistakes. George Bailey scored his third fifty in four innings and John Hastings gave him good support to lead them to a score that looked competent – till De Kock took charge, that is.

The inexperience of their bowlers was quite evident in the way they went scattered all over the park. Even Adam Zampa looked ineffective for the visitors. The problem for Steve Smith is that his options with the ball are so limited and it puts so much pressure on their batsmen.

Australia would be desperate to make a comeback because another loss would be catastrophic for their hopes of a series win. Taking them to win could be interesting punt that can be looked upon. Bailey is in crackling form and another fifty from him looks a good punt. Try putting your bet on him becoming the Aussie top scorer.

Rilee Rossouw went about his job so quietly and was left in the shadow of De Kock’s brilliant innings. Rossouw could be a good punt to lead the batting charts.
Regardless, it should be a great match!
