AUSW vs RSAW Team Previews
Australia was completely outplayed in the 2nd ODI as they lost the match by a whopping 84 runs. As a result, they have squandered away the early lead and now face the prospect of a series loss against South Africa in ODIs.
The top and middle-order batting wasn’t in the best of forms on Wednesday as only 2 of the top 7 batters managed to reach double-digit scores. However, Australia has some quality players who will look to bounce back. Beth Mooney, who scored a half-century in the opening fixture, will be a key player.
Alyssa Healy and Phoebe Litchfield are likely to open the batting, while all-rounders Tahlia McGrath, Ellyse Perry, and Annabel Sutherland will add depth to the batting. Megan Schutt was in good form with the ball as she picked up 2 wickets in the last match and is also quite economical.
She will open the seam attack alongside Kim Garth and Sutherland, while Ashleigh Gardner, Georgia Wareham, and Alana King will feature in the spin department.

South Africa Women
South Africa will be pretty delighted with the way they played in the last match. However, not everything is perfect with the team and there are a few areas where they would like to work on.
Laura Woolvardt and Tazmin Brits aren’t in the best of forms at the top of the order. Brits got a good start in the last match but failed to convert it into a big inning. The opening partnership will play an important role if the visitors want to replicate the previous result.
Chloe Tryon and Anneke Bosch played solid knocks on Wednesday to provide good support to Marizanne Kapp. Kapp has been the standout performer for the team. She scored 75 runs and picked up 3 wickets in the last match.
She will once again feature in the pace attack alongside Nadine de Klerk and Masabata Klaas, while Chole Tryon is the lone quality spinner.

Pitch and Conditions
The pitch at the North Sydney Oval provides plenty of help to the seamers. There is a good amount of pace and bounce on offer and the new ball moves around. The batters will need to pace their innings well. A score of around 260 should be a par score. There isn’t much in the pitch for the spinners. The weather is likely to be clear with temperatures of between 20 and 25 degrees.
There will be gusts of wind blowing through the ground that can help the ball swing.

Bet on Australia W to win.
Bonus Cricket Bets
The pitch at the North Sydney Oval isn’t the easiest to bat on and there is plenty of help for the seamers. The last match saw 16 wickets fall and we are expecting a similar outcome here.
As mentioned earlier, the pitch doesn’t allow the batters to free their arms and they will find it difficult to go after the bowling. We are therefore unlikely to see a high-scoring over.
Australia has one of the strongest batting lineups in women's cricket and we expect them to respond powerfully after their loss in the previous match. The odds on offer are not great but it is not often you will get a potential 28% return on this bet.
