The two greenhorns of the test crickets will be again involved in a face off when the Australia would be touring South Africa for a one day series consisting of 5 matches in the month of September and October 2016. It is a well known fact that both teams are brimming with talents because of the presence of bowlers such as Steyn from South Africa and Starc from Australia. Steve smith would be the back bone of the Australian team in the middle order to tear apart the opposition bowlers to a great extent.
Warner in the opening slot will increase the scoring rate early at the start of the innings. He would be supported by Finch and also by Khawaja who is the form of his life. The left hander batsman doesn’t need deliveries to settle down but can straightway move into the top gear to score quick runs. South African bowlers led by Rabada and Morne Morkel would have to be innovative to snuff out early wickets.
Australians have an impressive record in one day internationals as it is placed in the first rank. The team has an impressive pace battery consisting of Hazelwood and Faulkner apart from Starc. Visitor and hosts have to play excellent cricket if they want to win the series. There is nothing much to choose between the two teams however the Kangaroos have to be aware of AB Devilliers.
If the pitch is aiding swing and seam, the fast bowlers from both sides would be yearning to exploit the juice and take crucial wickets. Mitchell Starc could be the game changer for Australia as he can fire in swinger Yorkers to dismiss the batsmen. He would be helped by Faulkner as he can block free scoring runs from the opposition batsman in an impeccable manner.
