SA vs AUS 5th ODI Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report | SA vs AUS 5th ODI Dream11 Prediction Today | Johannesburg Pitch Report

There have been memorable matches between South Africa and Australia at Johannesburg. The most famous was 17 years ago when the Proteas chased down 434, and they come into this decider full of momentum after smashing a 400+ score two days ago.

With Australia the happier of the two sides at the midway point of South Africa’s innings at Centurion, Heinrich Klaasen went into overdrive. He blew the Australians and all viewers away in equal measure, thanks to a mesmerising, magnificent and simply brutal 173 off 84 balls that turned a 270-like innings into 416/5.

Indeed, with South Africa’s resurgence in this series comes questions for Australia. Sure, they are without key players, but death-bowling and middle order batting against spin are questions the Australians will face in the upcoming World Cup. A series win and efficient performance at Johannesburg, which will be tough to achieve after such an onslaught, can boost confidence nicely.

SA vs AUS 5th ODI Possible Playing XIs

Temba Bavuma missed the fourth ODI due to an adductor strain. It was more of a “precautionary measure.” So, there is a chance he returns for this fifth and final match.

South Africa: 1. Quinton de Kock (wk), 2. Reeza Hendricks/Temba Bavuma, 3. Rassie van der Dussen, 4. Aiden Markram, 5. Heinrich Klaasen, 6. David Miller, 7. Marco Jansen/Wayne Parnell, 8. Keshav Maharaj, 9. Kagiso Rabada, 10. Lungi Ngidi/Gerald Coetzee, 11. Tabraiz Shamsi

Travis Head is out with a fractured hand. He is in doubt for the World Cup. Mitch Marsh is likely to open.

Australia: 1. David Warner, 2. Mitchell Marsh (c), 3. Marnus Labuschagne, 4. Cameron Green, 5. Alex Carey (wk), 6. Marcus Stoinis, 7. Tim David, 8. Sean Abbott/Michael Neser/Aaron Hardie, 9. Nathan Ellis, 10. Adam Zampa, 11. Josh Hazlewood

The Wanderers Stadium Johannesburg Pitch Report and Weather

The average first innings score in the past five ODIs at Johannesburg is 278.4. The chasing team has won three of those matches. But, with this being a day game, batting first and putting on a big score is the way to go given this series has been dominated by teams setting a total.

A clear day is forecast with a top of about 25 degrees.
