South Africa will take on Australia in the second match of the ODI series on Saturday. Australia won the opening match by three wickets. It was a very closely fought where South Africa put up 222 while batting first and later restricted Australia to 101/7. But concussion substitute Labushagne and Agar stitched an excellent partnership to see them home.

When: 9 September, 4:30 PM IST

Where: Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein

Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein Pitch Report

The surface here will be good for batting with even covering of grass and there will be some help for spinners in the middle overs. The average score is 252. The two matches so far this series have seen plenty of runs but since this is a day game we might see some help for the spinners.

SA vs AUS Fantasy Tips

  • Temba Bavuma carried his bat through the innings to score a magnificent 114* in the opening match
  • Temba Bavuma averages 106 in ODIs this year and has 2 centuries in Bloemfontein against England and Australia respectively.
  • Quinton de Kock has scored 11, 8 and 9 in his previous three ODI matches. However he can be backed to do well in this match given his ODI career record.
  • Marcus Stoinis bowled with the new ball and picked up two wickets in the last game. He will also bat in the middle order.
  • Alex Carey is batting lower down the order and might not face much balls to have an impact. Hence avoid him for this match.
  • Josh Hazlewood was impressive in the previous match picking up three wickets.
  • Marnus Labushagne looked in sublime form scoring 80 runs of 93 balls in the previous match. He will be a good captaincy pick for grand leagues.
  • Gerald Coetzee bowled with good pace and picked up two wickets in the opening match of the series.
  • 48* in the previous match was the highest score for Ashton Agar in ODIs he will be giving points with both bat and ball.
  • Bloemfontein is usually a good surface for batting but it had uneven bounce and plenty of help for the pacers in the opening match. This match will be played at the same venue so we can expect another middling total.
