Unsurprisingly, given their respective form at this tournament, Australia are favourites to beat South Africa in the tournament’s final group game.
AUS Bet365 Odds
- AUS to Win the Match: Australia are 1.44 favourites to beat South Africa in the final group game of the 2019 Cricket World Cup with Bet365.
- AUS Top Batsman: The Aussies’ opening batsmen have been key to their success so far, and both Aaron Finch and David Warner can be backed at 3.75 to be Australia’s top batsman.
Usman Khawaja took that honour last time out and he is 4.50, as is Steve Smith, while Alex Carey is 15.00 after his half-century against New Zealand.
With Warner and Finch in such good form, Australia are 1.66 favourites to hit the highest opening partnership.
- AUS Top Bowler: Mitchell Starc is 3.00 to be Australia’s top team bowler again after his superb wicket-taking form in this tournament. Pat Cummins is second-favourite at 3.75, but Jason Behrendorff is a more tempting outsider at 4.50.
SA Bet365 Odds
- SA to Win the Match: South Africa are 2.75 to beat Australia at Old Trafford with Bet365.

AUS vs SA Dream11 Team Prediction
If recent form is continued, there are a couple of bargains to be found for the Dream 11 pick for this game.
Quinton de Kock or Alex Carey is your choice, with De Kock a full credit more expensive. Carey hit 71 last time out, however, and this could be a good chance to keep credits in reserve for Australia’s in-form openers.
David Warner and Aaron Finch have formed a formidable partnership and simply have to be picked, but you may also have enough in reserve to afford Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla after their big partnership last time out. Usman Khawaja is 8.5 credits if you want to save a little, and Aiden Markram could even be worth picking at eight credits.
Chris Morris is South Africa’s leading wicket-taker so far and he and fellow all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius impressed last time out. Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis have been inconsistent for Australia.
Mitchell Starc is the tournament’s leading wicket-taker and again must be picked, while Imran Tahir remains an ever-present threat for South Africa. Jason Behrendorff has impressed since coming into the Australia team and can be picked up for just eight credits. That leaves nine credits and a choice of Kagiso Rabada or Pat Cummins if you want another bowler.
Mitchell Starc has taken wickets consistently in this tournament and could be a good pick, but Old Trafford has favoured the batsmen so far in this tournament and David Warner and Aaron Finch will want to fill their boots. If they do, the Australian openers could deliver some big returns.
