South Africa v Australia, 1st ODI Boland Park, Paarl
Saturday, 29 February; 1:00pm local, 11:00am GMT
South Africa have held the advantage in recent ODI bilaterals between the sides, winning seven out of their last eight games against Australia across two series, including a 5-0 sweep at home in late 2016.
But those stats will not count for much when the sides face off for the first game of this series at Boland Park. Australia have been on the rise since March 2019, when they defeated India in their backyard, and have shown few signs of stopping since Steve Smith and David Warner returned to the setup.
