The previous game which was played at St George's Oval clearly indicated the low confidence level of the visitors.

Aaron Finch is continuing the pathetic run with the bat, and it is the main point of concern for Aussie skipper Steven Smith. For the team, it is quite necessary to win the match at any cost in order to avoid the humiliation of a whitewash.

On the other hand, the South African team has shown some faultless cricketing show throughout this series. The team is well settled, and all the players are providing their own contributions for the success of the side.

Rilee Rossouw and Quentin De Kock are opening the innings for the hosts, and these batsmen have laid a good platform for the middle order in the first two games; in the third and fourth game, Hashim Amla joined the opening slot along with Quentin.

As the opening wicket partnership between Hashim and Quentin is not working out well, skipper Faf Du Plessis may again try the combo between De Cock and Rilee.
