AUS vs RSA Betting Tips

  • David Warner has a brilliant ODI record and the left-handed opener looked very comfortable against a strong India bowling attack on Sunday before being dismissed for 41 runs from 52 balls. He hit six fours in his innings as he continued his excellent form from the India ODI series where he hit three half-centuries. We are backing Warner to be Australia’s highest run scorer against South Africa. Josh Hazlewood was the pick of Australia’s bowlers in the defeat in Chennai and he bowled a maiden as well as taking 3-38 from his nine overs. The right-arm quick bowler is our tip for Australia’s top wicket taker in Lucknow.
  • Quinton de Kock has now hit 18 hundreds in this format and he comes into this clash with Australia looking to back up his 84-ball century against Sri Lanka. The left-handed keeper-batter will have been disappointed to not kick on with his innings in that game but he has the perfect opportunity to go again in this match. de Kock is our pick for South Africa’s highest run scorer against Australia. Kagiso Rabada took 2-50 against Sri Lanka and the right-arm pace bowler loves nothing more than testing himself against the biggest names in the sport. Rabada is a strong choice for South Africa’s top wicket taker in this clash.
  • After hitting 106 and 78 in the ODI series in South Africa last month, we recommend selecting David Warner to hit over 31.5 runs in this clash.

AUS vs SA ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Cricket World Cup 2023

Match 10 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup brings Australia and South Africa together in Lucknow at the Ekana Cricket Stadium. Australia, who have won the Cricket World Cup on five previous occasions, got off to a losing start by 6 wickets with 52 balls remaining against India in Chennai on Sunday. South Africa were excellent in their opening match of the tournament as they beat Sri Lanka by 102 runs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi on Saturday. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 14:00 local time.

Australia had their moments in the defeat to India but were unable to perform well enough across the game to get off to a winning start in the 2023 Cricket World Cup. Although they have a poor recent record against South Africa, we expect the Australians to up their game for this match.

South Africa are full of confidence in this format and have players at full fitness delivering with both bat and ball. There will be plenty of self belief in the group after they beat Australia 3-2 in the recent ODI series and they will certainly fancy their chances in Lucknow.

AUS vs SA Match Toss Prediction

Two of the last three ODIs have been won by the team batting first and we predict that both captains will choose to bat first in this game if they win the toss.

AUS vs SA Pitch Report

This Ekana Cricket Stadium pitch has always offered something for both the spinners and the quick bowlers. However, it is a new surface after being relaid earlier this year so a par score is hard to predict.

The venue has hosted 4 ODIs so far out of which team batting first has won 2 matches and the chasing team has also won twice.

Lucknow Weather Report

The forecast is for sunshine until sundown in Lucknow. The temperature will be in the 30s early in the game before dropping to the high 20s for the final part of the match.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

Australia Team News

Although Australia were beaten by India in their opening match of the World Cup 2023, they managed to get through the game without any injuries to their players. Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green both came into the match with fears over previous injuries but both will be ready to go again in this match.

Australia Key Players

  • David Warner - The 36 year old will be turning 37 over the next seven days but is still producing the goods on a very regular basis. This will be his 150th ODI innings and he currently averages 45.02 in this format.
  • Steve Smith - The former skipper top scored for Australia on Sunday with 46 runs from 71 balls. However, we expect him to want to score runs at a quicker rate in this match against South Africa.
  • Glenn Maxwell - Maxwell could not perform well in the first fixture but we are backing him as a key all-rounder for this match. He has been impressive with his bowling skills and we are well aware of his batting capabilities. Maxwell has played 130 ODIs in which he has scored 3510 runs and picked 64 wickets.

Steve Smith 146 130 5100 164 44.34 87.38 12 30
  • Josh Hazlewood - The right-arm quick bowler has had some injury problems over the last 12 months but he now looks fully fit. He picked up the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer and Virat Kohli in Chennai.
  • Mitchell Starc - The left-arm pace bowler showed he still has the ability to get the new ball to swing when he dismissed Ishan Kishan during the first over of India’s chase on Sunday.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

South Africa Team News

After their exciting high scoring victory over Sri Lanka in Delhi on Saturday, Temba Bavuma was able to relax the fears of South Africa fans who wondered why Quinton de Kock had not fielded. The keeper-batter is expected to be fully fit to keep wicket and bat at the top of the order in this match.

South Africa Key Players

  • Quinton de Kock - The keeper-batter hit 12 fours and three sixes at the top of the order against Sri Lanka. He has performed at the top level for the past ten years and he will relish this clash against Australia in Lucknow.
  • Aiden Markram - With a strike-rate of 196.29 and an innings which included 17 boundaries, the entire cricketing world stood up and took notice of the in-form right-hander after Saturday who is in fantastic form at the moment.

South Africa Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Quinton de Kock 146 146 6276 178 45.15 96.05 18 30
Aiden Markram 56 53 1771 175 36.89 99.38 3 7
  • Gerald Coetzee - There are always some young players who make a big first impact in international cricket during a World Cup and Coetzee stood out with figures of 3-68 in the win over Sri Lanka on Saturday.
  • Kagiso Rabada - The experienced right-arm pace bowler impressed on a batter friendly surface in Delhi against Sri Lanka. He comes into this game four wickets away from 150 dismissals in ODI cricket.
  • Marco Jansen - Marco Jansen looks in good form with the bat and ball. He smashed a six and remained not-out and then he picked 2 wickets with the ball but went little expensive. We are backing him as a crucial all-rounder for this match. Jansen has picked 20 wickets and scored 277 runs in 15 ODIs so far.

Australia vs South Africa Betting Odds

Although Australia lost their opening game of the tournament and the last three ODIs against South Africa, it is the Aussies who are favourites with the bookies. Australia are 1.61 to win with South Africa the underdogs at 2.10.

Who will win Australia vs South Africa ODI Match?

This looks like being a brilliant contest between Australia who are desperate to get their first win and South Africa who are in brilliant form. We think Australia will know the importance of this clash and will be determined enough to get over the line.

AUS vs SA Top Team Batsmen

David Warner, Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh and Marnus Labuschagne are our batting choices for Australia. Opener Marsh made a six-ball duck in their opening match of the tournament against India but he hit 71 in his last ODI innings against South Africa in mid-September. He also scored 96 in an ODI against India only two innings ago as well. Labuschagne is a consistent performer for Australia irrespective of the format or the state of the game. He was one of only three players in the top eight who managed to score over 25 runs against India and he scored a century against South Africa just over a month ago.

For South Africa, Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klaasen are our batting picks. Klaasen was hitting the ball very cleanly once again in the win over Sri Lanka and he will be keen to build on the three sixes he scored in that innings. The middle order batter has been in brilliant form across all formats and he will have no fears at facing this Australia attack. Markram made two scores in the 40s and a century against Australia in their recent ODI series but comes into this match with scores of 102 not out, 93 and 106 across his last five innings in this format.

AUS vs SA Top Team Bowlers

For Australia, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are our tips with the ball. Spinner Zampa was the most expensive of all the Australia bowlers against India and he can expect the South African batters to look to attack him as well in this match. The 31 year old has taken 142 ODI wickets across his career in this format and has over 200 across all internationals. Captain Cummins went wicketless in the defeat to India but he will want to step up and deliver for his team in Lucknow. The game in Chennai was the first time in seven ODIs that he has not dismissed a batter and we expect him to be back amongst the wickets in this match.

Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Gerald Coetzee and Kagiso Rabada are our bowling recommendations for South Africa. Spinner Maharaj dismissed Dhananjaya de Silva and Dasun Shanaka against Sri Lanka and if there is spin to be exploited at this venue then he will find it. The slow left-arm orthodox bowler has best figures of 4-33 across his ODI career so far. Jansen continues his recent strong wicket taking form although he did leak 92 runs on Saturday. However, South Africa recognise the importance of his ability to dismiss batters and they have other bowlers who are in the team to bowl with control. Jansen took 5-39 the last time these sides met and he will be looking forward to bowling at the Australian batters again in this clash.

🏆 Australia vs South Africa Prediction

With three players in South Africa’s line-up hitting centuries in their opening match, a clear message has been sent out to all the other teams that they are a side to be taken seriously in this tournament. However, with confidence high in their camp, Australia will relish the opportunity to bring them down and get their first win of the competition at the same time. Playing against India in Chennai was always going to be a tough opener for Australia and we expect them to be far better with both the bat and ball in this fixture. Our prediction is for an exciting and close game in Lucknow with Australia able to get over the line to win the match.
