RSA vs AUS Match Prediction & Analysis

South Africa put up a good fight against the Australians but could not win the T20 series. A heavy loss in the decider shows the mental toughness that the South Africans still lack and that is something they would be aware of.

The T20 series actually had a lot more relevance than the upcoming ODI series because of the T20 World Cup around the corner. Still, Australia is not a team that takes any cricket match lightly and we don’t expect any loss of intensity from them.

The competition in both the teams for ODI spots is pretty strong and that should add some more relevance to the current series. The redemption arc of Steve Smith and David Warner is also not quite complete just yet so they will have more to prove as well.

South Africa vs Australia 1st ODI is going to be played at Boland Park, Paarl on the 29th of February 2020.

Team Previews

South Africa

South Africa is in a rebuilding stage and will know that there are going to be some tough times ahead before the process starts to become apparent. The players have to be exposed to top-quality international cricket for a sustained period of time before they will start to become comfortable.

This is why persisting with players like Janneman Malan, Kyle Verreyne, JJ Smuts, and Beuran Hendricks is very important for the South Africans. All of these players may not get the chance to play in the first match but we are sure these are the names that will be thrown into positions of responsibility along the series.

JJ Smuts comes with a massive reputation as a handy all-rounder in domestic cricket where he picks wickets and scores runs very consistently. Janneman Malan could be an excellent option alongside Quinton de Kock at the top of the order with Temba Bavuma, David Miller, and Heinrich Kallsen to follow.

It is going to be a big challenge for South Africa to get enough runs on the board against a strong Australian attack, particularly if Quinton de Kock does not get runs. His form and runs through this series could dictate the South African fortunes.

Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, and Tabraiz SHamsi are the bowlers we expect to see start in the first match. Andile Phehlukwayo and JJ Smuts can easily combine to form the fifth bowler so that South Africa has the option of lengthening its batting as well.

Australia

Australia’s limited-pvers team is very strong and would be full of confidence after winning the T20 series. Aaron Finch, David Warner, and Steve Smith are going to play a huge role in this series as well. All three of them scored runs against the South African bowlers and now move into a format which they prefer.

David Warner and Steve Smith are giants of the fifty over game and can be expected to score runs freely in this series.

The focus is also going to be on Marnus Labuschagne after his success in the test arena. He was pretty against India without being spectacular and would like to take the next step up in his ODI career.

The availability of Darcy Short, Matthew Wade, Mitchell Marsh, and Alex Carey gives Australia the luxury to choose a middle-order as per its needs. Any three of these players will be great choices. We think Short will have to miss put to begin with and maybe hope for a chance later in the series.

The real strength of the Australian team, though, is its bowling. Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Josh Hazelwood, and Adam Zampa are all superb bowlers. Ashton Agar and Mitchell Marsh will compete for the all-rounders slot as well.

This gives Australia so much flexibility and firepower that it almost seems unfair.

We don’t see South Africa’a batting being able to dominate this bowling attack for long periods in this series.

Excellent weather with plenty of sun and not a cloud in sight is forecast for match day in Paarl. We should have no trouble getting the full quota of overs. As far as the pitch goes, Paarl is consistently a high-scoring ground in domestic matches played here.

We are sure the groundman would have prepared something similar for this important international encounter as well.

Expect a lot of runs with some help for the spinners at this venue.
