After winning the first two matches against the mighty Australia, theSouth African team under the captaincyFaf du Plessis is all set to play the third game which will be played at the Kingsmead on October 05, 2016.

The match starts at 10:30 GMT, 4:00 p.m. IST.

Final scores:

Australia wins the toss and decides to bat first.

Australia371 in 50 overs. (David Warner 117, Smith 108)

South Africa 372/6 49.2 overs. (Miller 118,Q de Kock 70) South Africa wins by 4 wickets.

A win in this match will mark the series win for the Proteas, but things will not be that easy, as the Aussies are dominant side, and they will try to come back in the series by winning the third game by all means.

The last match which was played in Johannesburg clearly hinted the loopholes in the Aussie batting department. Chasing a mammoth score of 362, the Kangaroos lost all their ten wickets at 219.

Apart from David Warner and Travis Head, no Australian batsmen were able to combat the pace bowling attack of the South Africa. Steven Smith and Mitchell Marsh are continuing their bad run in the longer format of the game, and this has severely affected the middle order Australian batting.

On the other hand, South Africa is a well-settled side, and they have a fully fledged team which is quite dangerous in nature.

Quinton de Kock andRilee Rossouw are providing a good platform for the team, as these openers are continuously succeeding in giving aquick start for the hosts.

Jean-Paul Duminy, Faf du Plessis, and David Miller are also at the peak of their form, and this makes South Africa the hot favorites.
