With an aim to put aside the demons of UAE tour aside, Australia will lock horns against South Africa in a three-match ODI series, which starts from November 4. Once hailed as the mighty Australians, the men in yellow have lately been in their worst form particularly in the white-ball cricket. Led by explosive opener Aaron Finch, they returned empty-handed from their recent tour of UAE against Pakistan. After going down in the two-match Test series versus the men in green, the Kangaroos were mauled by the number one T20I side in the three-T20I series.

On the other hand, South Africa are also going through a rebuilding phase and will look to sort their combination ahead of the upcoming ICC World Cup in England next year. The Proteas will take the field without their two most experienced players as top-order batsman Hashim Amla and all-rounder JP Duminy suffered unfortunate injuries.

However, the contest between Aussies and Proteas will not be short of any firepower as both the sides have placed one of the strongest bowling attacks on display in recent times. Returning back from injury Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins will join Mitchell Starc to bolster the Australian bowling attack. While for the Proteas the responsibility will be on veteran South African cricketer Dale Steyn to lead youngsters Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi.
