After an intriguing T20I series, South Africa and hosts Australia are gearing up to take on each other in a three-match ODI series, starting Saturday, with the first fixture at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.

The winner of the keenly contested T20I series was decided in the final fixture in Hobart after Australia won the contest by five wickets and four balls to spare to seal the series.

The ODI leg of the bilateral contest also promises to be mouthwatering as both teams have some stand-out performers who are capable of winning games on their day.

Notably, the Proteas women have never defeated Australia women in an ODI fixture, however, it was the same in the T20I circuit before the Laura Wolvaardt-led South Africa scripted history at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on January 28 and won their first-ever T20I game against Australia.

Hence, the stats are subject to change and it shouldn’t come as a surprise if South Africa manage to get one in their winning column against Australia as the 50-over series gets underway on Saturday.
