South Africa vs. Australia 2nd Test | Match Prediction, Betting Tip & Odds

Following a hugely entertaining T20 Series, South Africa and Australia meet in the first of their three-match ODI series in Paarl on Saturday, with just a single place separating the duo in the ICC rankings. Neither team is perhaps the One-Day force in which they once were, however a close encounter is certainly expected at Boland Park. Ahead of the first ball being bowled this weekend, this page will take a detailed look at the two teams, including bookmaker odds and our expert tip.

Initial Situation for the Game South Africa vs. Australia

South Africa and Australia hold one of the biggest rivalries in cricket, with any match involving the duo gaining a great deal of attention from both fans and betting customers. South Africa come into the game off the back of both T20 and ODI matches against England, while the tourists have already lost a One-Day series against India at the beginning of the year. South Africa won just three matches at the 2019 World Cup in England, while Australia made it through to the semi-finals, with the hosts having a great deal of work to do in the 50 over format of the game. With that being said, let’s take a closer look at the two teams, offering punters a better understanding of who may ultimately claim victory.
