Time:2016-09-30 18:38 Source:Sports Betting Author:www.oppofan.com
The Proteas have suffered a major blow before the series has even begun with top batsman AB de Villiers ruled out of the series in its entirety as he undergoes a surgical procedure on one of his elbows. Faf du Plessis is expected to deputise for De Villiers but a replacement is yet to be named.
 
De Villiers’ absence will put pressure on Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, Du Plessis and David Miller. South Africa look well covered in their bowling department with Dale Steyn and Kagiso Rabada leading the bowling attack while Imran Tahir provides some variety with his leg-spin. Steyn has found form in the recent past and will be buzzing ahead of the first ODI. The fast-bowler will be a key man for South Africa at Centurion.
 
David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, George Bailey, Mitchell Marsh and Aaron Finch are likely to feature in the batting order for Australia in the fifth ODI. John Hastings, Scott Boland and Adam Zampa will lead their charge with the ball. Warner and Zampa could be the ones to make the difference come Friday.
 
Match starts at 1:30 pm local time (11:30 am GMT).
 
Tips:
South Africa to win: 17/20 
Hashim Amla to be the top batsman for South Africa: 10/3
