Let’s get some (Elite) honesty out of the way: Australia is in a mess. And that’s not just a pointed assessment of the goings on at the boardroom level. A solitary ODI victory in the 11 played in 2018 paints the grimmest of grim pictures – more so just a few months out from a World Cup defense.
The current dismal state of affairs has its roots in the ball tampering saga – which took place in March but hasn’t stopped affecting Australian cricket still. Yet, the need for a move on – at least on the pitch – cannot be more apparent. All the off-field shenanigans – the corporate jargons and the player pacts – will only do so much to repair what’s assumed to be broken. For everything else, Australia will need to populate the wins column.
To do that, they need to shy away from the sort of batting performances they put in, in the tournament opener against South Africa in Perth. The floundering top-order can breathe slightly easy for having moved away from the testing Perth wicket to a much gentler Adelaide one, where batsmen have often had good memories to speak of. Just the last 50-over fixture there had Travis Head – the current Aussie opener – score a 107-ball 96 in a successful run chase against England.
Friday will present South Africa an opportunity to knock a groggy opposition out cold. And doing so will get them their first away series win in Australia since 2009 – which they achieved under Johan Botha.
Better batting conditions should mean the task of carving open Australia’s top-order as they did in Perth may not be as easy, but a collective of Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, and Imran Tahir is likely to be up for whatever challenge the conditions and a hopefully-spirited Australian batting line-up throws their way.
Shaun Marsh is back in training and gives Aaron Finch a solid option in a top-four that struggled and collectively scored 21 runs in Perth. Finch will have another key decision to make, on whether to break his all-pace attack and introduce a bit of leg spin from Adam Zampa.
Australia Probable XI: Travis Head, Aaron Finch (c), D’Arcy Short/Shaun Marsh; Chris Lynn, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood
No clear reason for South Africa to tinker with their line-up after a fantastic outing in Perth.
South Africa Probable XI: Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks; Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis (c), Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo; Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungisani Ngidi, Imran Tahir
Did you know:
Australia has a win % of 9.09 in 2018 – the worst ever for them in any calendar year. They have now lost their last seven ODIs which makes it their longest run of consecutive defeats in ODIs.
Australia has won their last four ODIs in Adelaide. In fact, their only ODI win in 2018 came at this venue – by three wickets against England.
South Africa have a 4-1 win-loss record in the five ODIs they played at the Adelaide Oval. A win in the second ODI would give them their seventh consecutive ODI win against Australia.
Australia Probable XI: Aaron Finch (c), D’Arcy Short, Shaun Marsh; Chris Lynn, Travis Head/Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Starc; Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood
South Africa Probable XI: Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock (wk); Reeza Hendricks, Faf du Plessis (c), David Miller, Farhaan Behardien, Chris Morris, Dale Steyn; Kagiso Rabada, Lungisani Ngidi, Imran Tahir
