Prediction:

The match is expected to be close, but Australia is the slight favorite.

South Africa conducted practice sessions ahead of the series with a two-day camp in Kruger National Park with all their white-ball hopefuls. “It was fantastic,” Markram said. “Being a bush lover, I was in my element. There are certain guys for whom it was outside their comfort zone. You also have to appreciate that. But all in all, the guys loved it.

“We camped out in the middle of the Kruger and had rangers and trackers around us. The camp was a tracking camp, so being able to track animals, follow animals, go on bush walks, and do things like that, which is quite a rare thing to do in the middle of Kruger. The boys loved it.”
