World Cup places are on the line and a simmering feud between Michael Clarke and Dale Steyn is set to boil over as the Australia v South Africa one-day international series opens with a bang at the WACA Ground on Friday.
Australia started the international summer of cricket on a high, having overcome a first-up loss before beating South Africa 2-1 in the Twenty20 series.
But with so many big-name players missing from both those sides, a more accurate gauge of the two sides’ ODI form is probably found in the three-nation series between Australia, South Africa and Zimbabwe a few months back.
In three matches against the Proteas, all played in the Zimbabwean capital of Harare, Australia only managed one victory. South Africa started well against the Aussies, with centuries from Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers leading the Proteas to a seven-wicket victory in the first game.
Australia responded with a 62-run victory in the second clash but couldn’t maintain that form in the last ODI, losing by six wickets as du Plessis again produced the goods.
