South Africa will look to seal the series in the third ODI against Australia at Kingsmead, Durban on Wednesday, October 5. The Proteas have completely dominated the series thus far. They are 2-0 up and have a great chance to pile further misery on the visitors.

The hosts have been clinical in both matches so far, with their batsmen leading the way. If Quinton de Kock was brilliant at the Centurion, stand-in captain Faf du Plessis led the charge at the Wanderers. Run machine Hashim Amla is still waiting in the wings and it speaks volumes of their batting efficiency.

South African bowlers have been rarely tested so far with Dale Steyn and Kagiso Rabada yet to show their top form. Durban is one of the more spin-friendly venues which could mean a greater role not just for Imran Tahir but also for JP Duminy.

If the Proteas have been clinical to the core, the Aussies have been downright poor. Their much-acclaimed batting disappointed in both games – even the first match score was credit largely to George Bailey and John Hastings. The poor form of Steve Smith and their top order is a rude awakening of the current Aussie frailties which could mean a game for Usman Khawaja.

The absence of regular bowlers was always going to be a challenge for the Kangaroos. But the newcomers have struggled to justify their selection with only Hastings showing a bit of control with the ball. Even Adam Zampa looked ineffective, but the conditions in Durban could work in his favor.

It’s rare to see an Aussie side folding without a fight, which is tempting enough to punt on them winning on Wednesday. Odds of $2.17 for an Aussie win are solid enough to consider for a punt.
