AUS vs RSA Betting Tips

  • Travis Head has scores of 155, 99, 175 & 92 across his last four international appearances. The 28 year old is in fantastic form and a strong choice for Australia’s highest run scorer in this Test.
  • Pat Cummins has 24 Test wickets at an average of 18.66 at the MCG and Australia's skipper is our pick for their top wicket taker against South Africa.
  • Kagiso Rabada was the top wicket taker across both sides at the Gabba and he is well worth backing as South Africa’s top wicket taker at the MCG.

AUS vs SA 2nd Test Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Australia will take on South Africa at The MCG. The second Test of the three-match series gets underway at 10:30 local time on Monday 26th December.


Although they completed a six wicket win inside two days at the Gabba last week, there is still plenty of room for improvement for Australia ahead of this Test. The quick finish to the First Test made it only the second time that a Test had finished in under two days in Australia.

AUS Batting

Travis Head was not only Australia’s top batter in Brisbane but the main point of difference between the sides and ultimately the reason that South Africa were beaten. Head brought up 2000 Test runs as well as taking the Player of the Match Award and he will be full of confidence ahead of this match at the MCG.

AUS Bowling

Left-arm pace bowler Mitchell Starc took his 200th Test wicket during the First Test with skipper Pat Cummins picking up seven dismissals over the two days. Josh Hazlewood is likely to return from injury in Melbourne but he will have to be at the top of his game after Scott Boland took 2-14 and 2-28 in Brisbane.

AUS Form

Australia have won five of their last six Tests and been beaten only once in this format throughout 2022.

South Africa

As expected ahead of the series, South Africa's bowlers were able to cause plenty of problems for Australia’s batters in the opening Test but it was their batters who were not up to the job. Theunis de Bruyn and Heinrich Klaasen are both likely to get call-ups to a team which is desperate for more runs in this Test.

SA Batting

It is now six Test innings in a row without South Africa going past 200 and, against a very strong and experienced Australia bowling attack, it will be hard work for the visitors to end that run in this Test. Middle-order batter Khaya Zondo impressed with 36 not out as part of the second innings total of 99 all out.

SA Bowling

There has never been any doubts about the strength of South Africa’s bowling attack who have picked up wickets against all sorts of batting opposition line-ups in this format across this year. Kagiso Rabada took eight wickets and ended up on the losing side in Brisbane but he will be keen to have another go at the Australian batters in Melbourne.

SA Form

South Africa are looking to avoid their fourth successive Test defeat in this match.

AUS vs SA, Melbourne Cricket Ground Pitch Report

The match will be played at The Melbourne Cricket Ground. We expect a slower wicket than we saw in Brisbane with the pitch offering less assistance to the seam bowlers.

🏆 Australia vs South Africa Prediction

The First Test was an extraordinary contest with the pitch rated as ‘below average’ by the match referee. It made for very exciting cricket with Australia coming out on top in a quick-fire low-scoring contest. We expect the game to move at a much slower pace in Melbourne but there are very few signs that South Africa’s batters will be able to produce a significantly stronger performance with the bat. We are predicting another win for Australia.
