Who will win the Australia vs South Africa ODI cricket series?
The South Africans really are enduring a wretched time, now going 12 months without a series win in any format of the game. They do have a good recent home ODI record against Australia, but their confidence must be shot to pieces.
The Australians really do seem to have rediscovered their groove after the lows of the ball-tampering saga here two years ago. The middle order batting is still a concern, but we'll back the Aussies in for a second consecutive 2-1 series win.
