RSA vs AUS Team Previews

South Africa

South Africa suffered a couple of embarrassing losses during the group stages. But other than that, its performance has been pretty consistent and it was the second team after India to book a place in the semis. South Africa has been knocked out of the World Cup twice by Australia, once in 1999 and then in 2007.

However, with its current crop of players, the Proteas have an excellent chance of exacting revenge.

Quinton de Kock, who has announced his retirement after the end of this World Cup, is in belligerent form. He has scored 4 centuries in 9 innings. He is among the top 3 run-getters. Temba Bavuma has been struggling so far and it will be important for him to get some runs in this match.

With Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, David Miller, and Heinrich Klaasen all playing well, South Africa has one of the most devastating middle orders in this series. Marco Jansen and Andile Phehlukwayo are two quality all-rounders who can add important runs toward the death.

Gerald Coetzee has emerged as one of the best finds for South Africa in recent times as he has picked up 18 wickets in just 7 matches. He will be supported by Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi with the new ball. Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi are two quality seamers on the squad.

Australia is the most successful team in the history of ODI World Cups and this is the 9th time that they have managed to make it to the knockouts. They were knocked out by the eventual champions England in the 2019 edition but will look to put up a winning performance this time around.

Barring the loss in the first two matches, Australia has been brilliant in this tournament, especially with their batting. David Warner is their most successful batsman with 499 runs. He, along with Travis Head is capable of giving Australia a brisk start. Mitchell Marsh scored an unbeaten 177 runs in the last match and looks in fine touch.

Glenn Maxwell has scored 2 centuries in his last 3 innings, including a memorable double-century against Afghanistan, and will once again play a key role towards the death overs. In the bowling department, Adam Zampa is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 22 wickets.

Australia’s pace unit has some of the best seamers in the world including Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. While they haven’t been in their best form on this tour, they can still be devastating with the new ball.

RSA vs AUS Toss Prediction

Teams batting first enjoy a slight edge at the Eden Gardens, winning 31 of the 34 completed matches. In this World Cup, they have won 3 of the 4 matches played. We, therefore, think that the winner of the toss will likely opt to bat first.

Pitch and Conditions

While the Eden Gardens traditionally offers a slow pitch, the last two matches played here have seen an average first-inning score of around 330 and that is what the team batting first will like to get to put the opposition under pressure. The seamers will get some movement with the new ball but nothing alarming as such.

There is a good amount of pace and bounce on offer. As the ball gets softer and older, the spinners will get some turn. There is a forecast of rain in Kolkata throughout the day and we may have some interruptions. 


RSA vs AUS Betting Tips

Both the teams have chartered similar journeys so far and it is very difficult to pick a clear winner between the two. However, we are leaning slightly towards South Africa to win this match. Most of their batsmen are in good form and can bat the opposition out of the competition. The team also has some quality bowling options that give them an edge.

Bet on South Africa to win.

    Adam Zampa to pick up over 1.5 wickets



Adam Zampa is the leading wicket-taker for this tournament. He has picked up 22 wickets at a strike rate of 21.50. Zampa has picked up at least 2 wickets in 6 of his last 7 innings, and we are backing him to do so again in this match.

  1. Parimatch


    Highest individual score

    Under 106.5 (1.85)


While there are plenty of runs to be scored at the Eden Gardens, none of the batsmen in this tournament has scored over 106.5 runs on this ground. The last time a batsman scored over 106 runs here was back in 2014. We, therefore, think that betting on `Under´ is a good option.

  1. Dafabet


    Total 6s

    Over 15.5 (1.85)


South Africa and Australia are the two teams who have scored the most 6s in this World Cup, hitting 91 and 85 maximums respectively. With plenty of in-form batsmen on both sides, we are expecting quite a few fireworks in this game.
