As the dawn of the new year takes place, Australian cricket will reach new heights if they continue their domination in the third Test against South Africa. Australia vs South Africa, 3rd Test, is scheduled to start from 4th January where the hosts will be planning to completely whitewash the visitors by claiming the series by 3-0.
The Aussies are already ahead of the Proteas as they have won the first two Tests in the month of December. The fixture is scheduled to take place at Sydney Cricket Ground, a venue where Australia has never lost a match against South Africa and they would be expected to maintain the same record.
Australian cricket witnessed a very positive end to the year as they gained momentum in the Test format by defeating South Africa in the first two fixtures. The team is turning out to be ferocious and every segment of the team has given their best performance in the past two games.
South Africa was surprised to find out about the 2-0 outcome when they made their way to Australia in December. The Proteas squad has entirely failed in front of the Australian attack and to make sure that the visitors end the tour on a positive note, they will have really work hard on scoring winnable numbers.
Our team of experts predicts that Australia won’t face any difficulty to win the third fixture and clinch the series by 3-0.
The betting tip is...
Australia will Win
Australian bowlers should be given for the win in the second game against South Africa. Cameroon Green, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, and Scott Boland controlled the game from the beginning of it. The finishing touch was given by David Warner as he scored a double hundred at a strike rate of 78.43. Steve Smith and Alex Carey also contributed from the other end. Australia has already won the series and now they will be planning to clinch the victory in the third game as well.
Things have suddenly taken a massive U-turn for the visitors as they are struggling to play a stable inning in the longest format of the game. The batters have lost their depth and are unable to score runs and Bowlers are turning out to be an easy target for the opposition. Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada had a good show in the last game but the Proteas batters failed to give a positive response in the second inning.
The third Test of the Australia vs South Africa series is expected to be a one-sided affair and Australia will win the game without much difficulty.
