SA vs AUS: Australia will lock horns against South Africa in the 5th ODI of Australia tour of South Africa, 2023 on Sunday, September 16, 2023, at The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg.

Australia kicked off the five-match ODI series with two back-to-back wins against South Africa, winning the first by a three-wicket and the second by 123 runs. However, South Africa made a fierce comeback in the next two matches, defeating Australia by 111 in the third and by 164 runs in the fourth ODIs. This has brought the series level to 2-2, setting the stage for an exciting fifth and final ODI.

Quinton de Kock, David Miller, and Heinrich Klaasen, among others, have been leading the charge for South Africa in the run department throughout the series. They will be eager to maintain their stellar form and carry South Africa to a series victory. Meanwhile, Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, and Kagiso Rabada have been absolute beasts with the ball, and they are hungry to keep dominating the Australian batters.

On the other hand, there’s a dark cloud over Australia’s preparations for the pivotal ODI decider, especially with the World Cup 2023 looming large. Travis Head, their star opener, has been sidelined due to injury. It’s a tough pill to swallow. Now, the spotlight shifts to David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, and Marnus Labuschagne to carry the batting load for Australia, while their bowlers, who got a drubbing in the previous match, are out for redemption.

Here are the match details, pitch report, probable playing 11, squads, player records/stats and dream11 fantasy team predictions for the 5th ODI of Australia tour of South Africa, 2023.
