Australia will face South Africa in the second One-Day International (ODI) at Perth on Sunday. The hosts registered a comfortable victory in the first ODI courtesy some brilliant batting by Glenn Maxwell and George Bailey.

During the course of their 32 run victory in the first ODI at Perth, the hosts lost the services of their regular captain Michael Clarke, due to a hamstring injury. The Australians will, as a result, take on the South Africans under the leadership of George Bailey, who has already captained the ODI team 20 times before and looking at Clarke’s fitness problems, he might end up captaining Australia’s World Cup team as well.
