Janneman Malan and Heinrich Klaasen then made light of the target and chased it down with six wickets to spare.
Can Steve Smith & Co. save blushes or will South Africa get their whitewash? Let’s find out…
Here is complete SA vs AUS 3rd ODI Dream11 Prediction:
|Key Players in form||South Africa: Lungi Ngidi, Heinrich Klaasen, Janneman Malan.
Australia: D’Arcy Short, Aaron Finch.
|Weather Conditions||Mostly Sunny.
28°C, 26% Humidity, Winds up to 14 km/hr. 0% Precipitation.
|Toss Advantage||The chasing sides have had relative success at the Senwes Park in the recent past. 6 of the last 7 matches played here have seen the teams batting second win the contest.|
|The Senwes Park is almost a fortress for South Africa considering the home team has won every match played here except for a sole loss against New Zealand. The average stats at this stadium might be misleading considering the sheer variety of teams that have played here.
Talking about the pitch, the surface has slowed down a bit considering so many U19 World Cup matches have been played here in the recent past. While batting might get challenging in Potchefstroom, pacers would love the pitch.

Fantasy Cricket League Prediction | Tips and Tricks for today’s match between South Africa vs Australia 3rd ODI Dream11 Prediction
- Quinton De Kock is having a tough time in the ongoing ODI series. However, he remains a crucial player against Australia. The skipper has hit 673 runs at a respectable average of 33.65 against the Aussies. In fact, the 27-year-old wicket-keeper has a knack of scoring biggies while facing the Men in Yellow – Quinton has hit a total of 130 boundaries (4+6) against Australia, the most between the two teams.

- Heinrich Klaasen is in great form. He understandably became a top choice for every Fantasy player after the South African hit a blazing century against Australia in the first ODI. Klaasen then followed it with a well-deserved half-century in the second ODI. Before the ODIs, Klaasen’s scores in the last 5 games across all competitions read as – 22, 66 (T20I), 54, 27, 40 (domestic).
- David Warner gave Australia a great start in the last game with a score of 35 before falling to a marauding Ngidi. He remains the undisputed king when it comes to South Africa vs Australia matches. Against the Proteas, the opener has scored a humongous 1003 runs at an impressive average of 45.59. This includes 4 fifties and a record 4 centuries. In fact, his second-highest score of 173 was against the South Africans.
- David Miller hit 64 in the first ODI before backing it up with an unbeaten knock of 37. The middle-order batsman has 710 runs against the Aussies. However, it is his average of 59.16 against the Men in Yellow that impresses. Not to forget the strike-rate of 105.34.
- Aaron Finch’s knock of 69 runs on Wednesday went in vain as he didn’t receive help from his teammates. Nonetheless, Finch possesses great numbers in ODI, including an average of 41 runs per game. South Africans happen to be Finch’s favourite opponents as well, considering the skipper has 754 runs against them at an average of 35.90.
Steven Smith is a reliable choice as well. The cricketer has a respectable average of 43.00 in the ODIs. Moreover, against South Africa, the former Aussie skipper has an average of 43, including six 50+ scores.
- Janneman Malan completes our batting order. The 23-year-old surprised everyone by hitting a century in his 2nd ODI itself to help SA clinch the series. If not for Ngidi’s heroics, Malan would have won the ‘Man of the Match’ award for sure. Apart from his unbeaten 129, Malan also accounted for three wickets and available at a credit of only 8, the deal couldn’t have got any better!
- Agreed, Keshav Maharaj didn’t have an impact in the first two ODIs. However, his stats in the four domestic games before that read something like this – 3/49, 2/28, 4/24, 4/32. The Senwes Park would be providing great support to spinners and we hope Maharaj is the biggest beneficiary on Saturday.
- Mitchell Marsh presents a cost-effective choice here at 8 credits.
- Andile Phhehlukwayo can also be a good choice here, considering his wicket-taking exploits.
- Lungi Ngidi produced a mind-boggling performance on Wednesday by scalping 6 wickets to stop Australia at 271 runs itself. He was the most successful bowler in the first ODI as well, having returned with figures of 3/30. The pacer has momentum on his side, with a total of 16 wickets from his last five games, 7 of which have been in T20Is. The absence of Rabada has brought a new impetus to Ngidi’s performances.
- The reigning World Test No.1 bowler Pat Cummins seems to carry his record-breaking form in 2019 this year as well. The pacer took three wickets in the first ODI in return for a measly economy of 4.50. Although he couldn’t replicate that performance in the second game, expect good performance on Saturday.
- Anrich Nortje picked two wickets in the last game and presents a great choice here at 8.5 credits.
- Our bowling attack is completed by the talented spinners Tabraiz Shamsi and Adam Zampa, who might benefit from Senwes Park’s slow, turning pitch.
Captain & Vice-Captain Choices
- Lungi Ngidi is our choice for captaincy for two main reasons – One, his stunning momentum; Second, the slow Senwes Park pitch which is expected to make life easy for the South African.
- Heinrich Klaasen would be our vice-captain, considering his impressive form.
