After sharing honours in the two-match Twenty-20 series that gave both teams an opportunity to test their bench strength, South Africa and Australia extend their rivalry to the ODI format. The two Twenty-20 matches didn’t witness kind of intense cricket that one normally associates with the two teams.
Expect a intense contest between the two sides in the ODI’s, though. For big guns return to the either side boosting the chances of top quality cricket in the five match series that starts with a day and night game at centurion.
The home side will be strengthened by return of ace all-rounder Jacques Kallis and spearhead of bowling attack Dale Steyn. While Kallis gives stability , and, more importantly, flexibility to the setup, paceman Steyn injects teeth to the attack. With regular skipper AB de Villiers yet to recover from finger injury, Hashim Amla continues to be at the helm of affairs in the ODI series as well.
For Australia, skipper Michael Clarke, his processor Ricky Ponting and ever reliable Michael Hussey are back to make batting a strong unit. The team management is sweating on getting Shaun Marsh and all-rounder Shane Watson fit before the series gets underway. Both of them sustained injuries in the twenty-20 series. With the duo doubtful starters, Australia have been prompted to direct their t-20 skipper Cameron White to continue his stay with the squad.
Barring its failure to defend world cup early this year, Australia have had terrific record in ODI cricket. So much so Aussies to the ODI rankings, and, post world cup debacle have won ODI series in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
