South Africa and Australia are all set to continue their ongoing multi-format series. Both sides will compete against one another across five ODI matches, and South Africa will be keen on improving on their results as they lost the T20I series by losing every three games.
On the other hand, Australia will be riding high on confidence with their T20I series win and will look to put in a similar performance in the five-match ODI series to top it all off.

Probable Best Batter:
Mitchell Marsh (Australia):
Australian skipper Mitchell Marsh could be the best batter in the side’s upcoming clash against South Africa in the first ODI. It is worth noting that Marsh has been in sensational form as of late, and he will look to follow it up in the ODI series as well.

Adam Zampa (Australia):
Australia’s Adam Zampa could be the best bowler in the first ODI of the five-match series. Zampa’s decisiveness in crunch moments and his ability to break partnerships could prove handy for the Aussies in the upcoming fixture..
