Australia have lost nine out of their last 10 ODIs but the advantage of home conditions and the return of two of their premium pacers can turn things around for them.
After coming off a 0-5 pasting against England, Australia lost to Pakistan in the final of the tri-series in Zimbabwe. Their recent white ball defeat has come in T20Is where they were white washed by Pakistan.
Although South Africa have won both their last two ODI series, they have not faced an opposition which can really test them. After losing the home series to India badly, they have won 3-2 against Sri Lanka and then 3-0 against Zimbabwe.
