Australia and South Africa have had contrasting starts to this World Cup but their rivalry surpasses everything. The form book goes out of the window as the two rivals get ready to script another classic. While Australia have an edge from their previous World Cup wins, South Africa have an edge from recent form. Although it is against the script, we are going to stick our necks out and favour an upset. I am backing South Africa to win this match.

  • Australia have lost 3 of their last 4 completed matches against South Africa in neutral venues (ODIs)
  • Australia have lost 8 of their last 10 matches against South Africa (ODIs)
  • South Africa have won all 3 matches against Australia in India (ODIs)
  • South Africa have won their last 3 matches in the World Cups (ODIs)

Head to Head


Australia played South Africa in 108 ODIs so far with 50 wins for Australia, 54 wins for South Africa and three matches ending in a tie. One game finished without a result.

These sides were on view in a five-game series in South Africa in September, which the Proteas won 3-2 after losing the first two.

Australia Form


Australia started their tournament with a six-wicket loss to India in Chennai last Sunday. Their score of 199 was never going to challenge the hosts, who went over the line in the 42nd over.

It was Steven Smith and David Warner who led their batting with 40s but otherwise there wasn’t much from the Aussies batters. With the ball, Josh Hazlewood took three wickets, but that wasn’t enough to create more than a stutter.

With another match against Sri Lanka at the same venue in four days after this game, Australia would be keen to get into winning ways.

Australia Team News


Australia missed Marcus Stoinis in the first match but he could come into the game in place of Cameron Green.

South Africa Form


South Africa started their World Cup with a comprehensive 102-run win over Sri Lanka in Delhi last Saturday. It was a game highlighted by their batting that posted 428 for 5 before bundling Sri Lanka for 326.

The Proteas innings revolved around three centurions – Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram. Bowlers hunted in pairs with Gerald Coetzee taking three wickets and three others taking two wickets each.

With a game against the Netherlands up next, South Africa know that a win here will give them a great chance to boost their top-four chances.

South Africa Team News


South Africa could look at bringing left-arm chinaman Tabraiz Shamsi into the side, in place of Coetzee.

Verdict

The loss to India doesn’t justify Australia’s strengths as they ambushed by an Indian virtuoso performance. They have enough stocks in their arsenal to make a comeback here but South Africa will come hard. The Proteas have had the stick over Australia in recent times and I am backing them to do the job here as well. Put your money on South Africa winning here.
