Fantasy Cricket Tips, South Africa Vs Australia, Third ODI: After being on the losing side of every series, South Africa won their first series across formats since March 2019 by beating Australia in the second ODI. The last year has been a difficult journey for the proteas as they suffered defeats at the hands of every team they faced. But this series win comes under the charge of the new guard with Captain Quinton de Kock and the support staff led by Mark Boucher.
Major credits must go to the new faces who have come and performed well. Heinrich Klassen in the first game helped them take a 1-0 lead like they have done all season. But it was Janneman Malan’s magnificent 129 that sealed the series. Lungi Ngidi’s growth would be heartening for the home team, especially in the absence of Kagiso Rabada. They would like to go for a 3-0 scoreline. On the other hand, Australians would be disappointed to have performed the way they have. The fact that it came after a dominating T20I series win has raised questions. They would love to finish the tour with a win.
