Australia will take on South Africa in a three-match one-day series that will begin from 4th November. Aaron Finch will lead the side for this series after replacing Tim Paine, who has been dropped due to poor form. Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell and Shaun Marsh are experienced players in the batting department for Australia. Pace duo of Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins have been declared fit and will certainly play this one-day series.
On the other hand, South Africa will field a relatively weak side in this series. Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, and Reeza Hendricks are promising players that would be focused to make an impression with the bat in the coming three-match one-day series against Australia.
Dale Steyn will certainly take the new-ball with Kagiso Rabada in this series. Lungi Ngidi will play as the third seamer in the XI. Imran Tahir will definitely play for South Africa in this one-day series.
