South Africa tour of Australia, 2018
Australia vs South Africa, 2nd ODI | AUS vs SA WHO WILL WIN
In a bid to salvage some lost pride and enforce a decider on the 11th, the beleaguered Australians will take on the Proteas in the 2nd ODI at the Adelaide Oval on November 9th.
Australia fell to their worst possible streak in ODI cricket- the seven-wicket loss at Perth was their seventh loss in a row and 10th in 2018.
It was the similar failings of their batting unit that contributed to their seven-wicket shellacking. Put into bat on a spicy Perth track, none of the Australian batters including skipper Aaron Finch could pose any resistance to the likes of Steyn, Ngidi, Rabada, and Phehlukwayo, to eventually get bowled out for 152.

Batsmen:- Australia’s batting has been lackluster for a long time now. However, the likes of Aaron Finch, Chris Lynn, and Alex Carey to turn it around.
All-rounders:- Glenn Maxwell can take the game away from an opposition in a jiffy while Marcus Stoinis showcased his all-round ability in the last game.
Bowlers:- One thing that Australia has already been blessed with- their pace-bowling attack. Expect the likes of Starc, Hazlewood, Cummins, and Coulter-Nile to crank it up if their batsmen give them enough runs to work with.
South Africa Fantasy Picks
Batsmen:- Quinton de Kock and Raza Hendricks gave the Proteas a 94-run start in the last game. They, along with Markram and Miller are ideal picks for your Dream11 team.
All-rounders:- Andile Phelukhwayo claimed three wickets in the last match.
Bowlers:- The trio of Dale Steyn, Lungi Ngidi and Rabada and the guile of Imran Tahir on a slow Adelaide pitch make South Africa’s bowling attack a fearsome unit. You can opt for any of them in your Fantasy XI.
QuickPro Tip:- Take Imran Tahir in your Fantasy XI as the Adelaide pitch traditionally favors the spinners
