Australia Team News
Aaron Finch is set to lead Australia’s 14-man squad as he has taken over the ODI captaincy from Tim Paine who has been ignored for this three-match series. In Paine’s absence, Alex Carey will be taking up the wicket-keeping responsibility. The selectors have also excluded Mitchell Marsh and test specialist Nathan Lyon in order to manage their workload. However, this series will see the return of explosive batsman Chris Lynn along with fast bowlers Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood who is coming after an injury lay off. The hosts have included two spinners in their squad – Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar – and only one of them will feature in the starting eleven.
South Africa Team news
South Africa has been hit by a few injuries blows ahead of their short limited-overs tour of Australia. Opening batsman Hashim Amla, middle-order specialist JP Duminy, and allrounder Wiaan Mulder have all been ruled out due to their respective injuries. While Amla is still recovering from the finger injury he had sustained during the Carribean Premier League, Duminy aggravated his shoulder injury during the recent series against Zimbabwe. The absence of Mulder has made way for Dwaine Pretorius while Duminy has been replaced in the middle order by Farhaan Behardien who has returned to the ODI set-up along with all-rounder Chris Morris. Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram are likely to open the batting for South Africa.
Australia and South Africa have played 95 one-day internationals against each other in the past. The former has won 47 of those while the latter have won 45 with the two countries having been involved in a tie on three occasions.
South Africa swept the series 5-0 the last time they played a bilateral ODI series against Australia in 2016 at home. The Proteas secured a comfortable 31-run victory in the fifth and final game of that series at Cape Town.
So far, the Perth Stadium has hosted just one international game – an ODI between Australia and England this year in January. England batted first in that game and went on to win by 12 runs. Since the pitch is expected to favor the bowlers slightly more during the second period of play, the toss-winning skipper may elect to bat first.
Australia will win the toss.
Australia will win the match.
