We are long way past the ICC Cricket World Cup - 2019, which England won, but the wounds are still fresh in the fans of South African Cricket team. It was the worst ever outing for the Proteas in that tournament and they have been struggling ever since in all formats of the game ever since. There have been glourious moments in between, but those have been far and few. The ongoing series against the Australians would have raised some hopes amongst the South African fans as after a long time, the Proteas are on a verge of winning a limited-overs series. Their preperation for the ICC World T20 appears to be well on track and they will be looking to top it off with a win in the final T20I of the series before moving to play the longer version of the game. The third match of the series is to be played on 26th February at the Newlands Stadium, Cape Town.
<h2>South Africa </h2>
South Africa were left shell-shocked after their massive defeat in the first fixture of the series, but they bounced back with a remarkable win in the second ODI, in which they managed to defend a relatively low total against a power-packed Aussie lineup. Not only did that win keep the Proteas in contention to win the series, it also ended Australia's eight-match win streak.
It was rather unexpected to see South Africa defend a sub-par total in the second ODI, especially after their bowlers delivered a dismal performance in the first match. Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi were both dispatched to all parts of the ground in the first match, but they played a massive role to keep Australia from winning the second match. Australia needed 35 off 28 deliveries to win the match, but a fine display of death bowling by Proteas' bowlers rendered the Aussies 12-run short.
Although the Proteas are improving, the progress seems to be slow. They do not have much time before the marquee ICC event and still have plenty of questions to answer. They appear to be a little too over-reliant on Quinton de Kock at the top of the order and his failure at the top more often than not results in a batting collapse for the Proteas. They have found a solid player in Rassie van der Dussen in the middle-order, but the form of other players would be a cause of concern for their management.
All in all, South Africa have plenty of talent available at their disposal. However, the lack of experience and lack of confidence has reflected in the past few matches. They have improved ever since Quinton de Kock has taken over a the skipper and will be looking to extend their good run for a little longer and go into the ICC World Cup with momentum behind them.

While Australia lost the previous match, their first loss in eight matches, they wouldn't be concerned, yet. Despite the absence of Glenn Maxwell, whose return will certainly strengthen Australia's middle-order, Australia appears to be having a well-settled unit. They have plenty of options with the ball and have power-packed players available throughout their lineup.
Ever since David Warner has returned from the ban, he has been fantastic, to say the least. And the same has been the case with Steve Smith. Australian top-order appears to be as good as any with the likes of Aaron Finch, David Warner, and Steve Smith available at their disposal. While their middle-order appears to be a bit inexperienced, the likes of Alex Carey, Matthew Wade, and Mitchell Marsh have plenty of experience of playing shortest version of the game. They bat deep with Mitchell Starc available to bat at number nine.
All in all, Australia appear to be a well-oiled machine and despite a loss in their last match, they will be running high on confidence. Almost all of their players had had good performances to their respective names recently. They have an excellent amalgamation of youth and experience and beating them is not going to be easy, even for South Africa, who have the advantage of playing at home.

Now that they won the match and the series is hanging in perfect balance, the upcoming contest is of huge significance.

As was the case in the last encounter, the upcoming match is expected to be an hard-fought encounter and will be a treat for the fans to match. Comparing the two sides on paper and on the basis of recent performances, Australia seem to be a better side, and a win for them appears to be most likely outcome of the match.
