Australia and South Africa will face off in the fourth match of the Tri-Nation series at St Kitts. Both the teams have played each other once, with South Africa coming out victorious by 47 runs on that occasion. Australia had won their first match against host West Indies before faltering the other day. South Africa started off with loss before beating the Aussies. The previous meeting saw Farhaan Behardien come to fore, scoring a 82-ball 62 to help his side post 189 batting first. In their reply, Australia were bowled out for 142, despite a valiant 72 by Aaron Finch. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Australia vs South Africa, 4th ODI Match

Australia will be looking to revenge their last match’s loss. Mitchell Starc was rested for the last game, but he will be expected to return. The impressive bowling performance from Nathan Coulter-Nile would mean either of Adam Zampa or Nathan Lyon to be dropped. Aussies will also hope David Warner will fire, after having missed out in the last game.

South Africa saw their big guns fail in the last game, but Behardien came to the rescue. Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers all got off to starts, but failed to convert them. Rilee Rossouw was very impressive in the first match against West Indies, but failed in the last match. Their bowling has been very impressive in both the matches. Kagiso Rabada has been really good, and Imran Tahir and Aaron Phangiso have done their job ably. Considering Australia’s struggles against spin, expect Tabraiz Shamsi to get another chance.
