Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
After getting absolutely hammered by the Australians in the three-match T20I series where they were subjected to two of their worst defeats, the Quinton de Kock-led Proteas pulled off an equally comprehensive 74-run-win in Paarl ODI to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match rubber.
That the South Africans were able to stage a fightback despite having their top-order knocked over by Mitchell Starc and Australia’s new-ball bowlers was largely because of a maiden century from Henrich Klaasen (123*) and able contributions from debutant Kyle Verreyene (48) and David Miller (64), propelling them to 7-291 after 50 overs.
With their middle-order largely inexperienced, Australia’s chances of chasing down the total hinged on their top-4. Steve Smith  and Marnus Labuschagne  stitched a valiant 86-run-stand after the dismissal of openers- David Warner and Aaron Finch- but the trial by spin courtesy Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj- was too hot to handle on a two-paced Paarl track.
Maharaj broke the 86-run-stand by dismissing Labuschagne and once again Australia’s soft underbelly-their middle-order- was exposed to the hilt as the visitors lost their last six wickets for 43 runs to get bowled out for 217. It is not the first time that South Africa have taken a lead in a series, but will they will be able to capitalise on it, or will the Aussies make a resounding comeback? We’ll wait and see as another trial by spin awaits the visitors.
Another bright sunny day is expected to be the order of the day in Bloemfontein on Wednesday if the weather reports are to be believed. According to the report, the temperature is set to fluctuate between 16-27 degrees Celsius while the humidity is set to hover around 45%. Chances of rain- 0℅
The pitch at the Mangaung Oval has traditionally provided a fair balance between bat and ball. Both pacers (average- 34.56) and spinners (34.32) have had equal say at the proceedings. The pitch tends to get slow in the second half and the spinners might once again come into play.
Average first innings score: 238 (In 30 ODIs played at the venue)
