After a thrashing win against Zimbabwe, the mighty Aussies will be up against an equally strong opposition. The Australians will take on their long-time rivals South Africa in the second ODI of the triangular series at Harare.

Pitch Report:

The Harare pitch is always known to assist the pacers in the beginning and weard out as the match moves on. So it can be expected that the pitch will remain the same. The team winning the toss will field first. A plenty of runs has been expected from the surface.

Weather Report:

The weather in Harare doesn’t bother the match organizers as it is expected to be remain sunny throughout the day. The maximum temperature will be 28o Celsius.

South Africa come into the tournament after whitewashing the hosts in the recently concluded ODI series. They will be welcoming back their ODI skipper AB de Villiers and test skipper Hashim Amla. Apart from the duo, their pace spearhead Dale Steyn and his partner in crime Morne Morkel is all set to come into the playing XI. AB de Villiers is in due for a big one and a lot of hopes will be on him when both the teams face-off against each other in few hours’ time.

On the other hand, Australia won’t be in the favour of disrupting the winning combination. Bailey told the reporters that Clarke will be playing the final leg of the tournament. Once again all eyes will be on Glenn Maxwell to come good against a strong bowling attack. This will be the perfect platform for Mitchell Marsh to cement his place in the ODI XI.
