Australia have not won an ODI series against South Africa for nine years. Last Ojira won the ODI series against the Proteas in 2014. Australia won the five-match series 4-1 at home.
Australia is on the verge of breaking the barren series win against South Africa. Ajira won the first two matches of the ODI series in South Africa by 3 wickets and 123 runs respectively. Australia will taste the ODI series win against South Africa after 2014 if they win the third ODI.
Australia’s acting captain Mitchell Marsh wants to decide the series in the third ODI. He said, ‘We are on the verge of winning the series by winning the first two matches. I want to confirm the series in the third match by continuing the winning streak.
Australia has won 50 of the 105 matches played so far. South Africa won by 51 runs. 3 matches were tied and 1 was abandoned.
