South Africa vs Australia, 5th ODI: Match Prediction – Who will win today’s match between SA vs AUS?

sa vs aus

The one-day international (ODI) series between Australia vs South Africa (SA) has been nothing short of an emotional rollercoaster. The Proteas recovered and delivered the Mitchell Marsh-led team two humiliating losses after the Kangaroos won the first two games of the series. Both teams will be motivated to succeed and enhance their morale in advance of the ODI World Cup 2023 because the series is on the line in the series’ final ODI at Johannesburg’s Wanderers Stadium.

In keeping with form, Heinrich Klaasen dominated the fourth ODI. With 174 runs in just 83 deliveries, the 32-year-old destroyed the Australian bowling staff. The Australians were completely destroyed by David Miller, who scored 82* runs in 45 deliveries. Rassie van der Dussen also performed well. Lungi Ngidi took four wickets with the ball, and Kagiso Rabada took three. So far, the team lead by Temba Bavuma has excelled at both bowling and batting.

Australia currently has a number of issues to deal with.Due to an unfortunate accident, Travis Head will not be participating in the next game. Also cause for concern is David Warner’s performance. In the most recent game, Alex Carey hit 99, and his form may be useful. In the previous game, Adam Zampa’s bowling unit allowed 113 runs to be scored in 10 overs. Others also appeared off-color.

He has hit 237 runs in four matches so far and with that, the 32-year-old is the second-leading run-scorer of the series. Therefore, he will be extremely vital in the series finale as well.

Lungi Ngidi (South Africa)

The ace South Africa pacer Lungi Ngidi picked up four wickets in the last match and if he manages to keep up with the form, it will be extremely difficult for the Aussie batters.
