Australia successfully managed to end their 8-ODI losing streak when they beat South Africa on their home turf. It will be a deciding game for Australia and South Africa in Hobart. Ever since the ball-tampering scandal, Aussies have been shaky with bat. Meanwhile, it was their bowling that took away the game from visiting Proteas. In the 3rd and final ODI, Aussies would look to put up a better show with the bat to pocket their first-ever series ever since the scandal.
On the other hand, South Africa had a disappointing game last night. It was a great chance for them to seal the series, but they looked weak with the bat in absence of Hashim Amla and JP Duminy. In the final ODI, they must address these issues to win another ODI series. Here is the probable dream XI prediction for Australia and South Africa:
FPJ’s dream XI prediction: Alex Carey, Faf du Plessis, Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch, Aiden Markram, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Marcus Stoinis, Dale Steyn and Kagiso Rabada
