The series may already have been won, but Australia will look to gain back some pride when they take on South Africa in the fourth ODI at Port Elizabeth on Sunday, October 9.

It has gone all too perfectly for the South Africans so far in the series. Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis wielded the sword in the first two matches, while it was the turn of David Miller to knock-out the Aussies in the third match. The inexperienced visitor bowling unit may have helped things, but take nothing away from this talented South African batting line-up.

The Proteas’ bowling wasn’t really tested until the third ODI and the main concern was around Dale Steyn. The veteran pacer hasn’t helped things by being erratic, except for in the second match. There’s a chance that he could be rested as the performances of Andile Phehlukwayo have been encouraging.
Australia suffered largely because of their weak bowling, but their batting too has been at fault for their inconsistent displays. David Warner and Steve Smith showed signs of getting them back on track, until a David Miller special blew them apart in the last match.

It’s always expected that this Aussie attack will struggle to take wickets, but the manner in which they are crumbling is a huge concern. Except for John Hastings, none of the bowlers were able to impress. Hastings could do well to have someone take wickets along with him.

There’s so much uncertainty around this Aussie team that it would take an aggressive punter to bet on their win. But the hosts may rotate their squad after the series win and the Aussies would not want to lose further ground. At the current odds, betting on the Aussies might not be the worst idea.

Amla is one of the most elegant batsmen in this format and he’s shown at Durban how he’s immune to form loss. Back him at odds to turn up as their best batsman. For the Aussies, it could be their captain Smith who may end up topping the batting charts and getting them over the line.
