South Africa vs. Australia 2023 ODIs: Team News


Mitchell Marsh, who made a successful start to his leadership journey during the T20Is, will continue to captain the Australian ODI team. However, one prominent name missing from the squad is Pat Cummins, who is unlikely to feature as he recuperates from a fractured left wrist.


Australia’s absence of key players doesn’t end there. Steve Smith is currently in recovery mode from a wrist injury, while Mitchell Starc has been given a rest period to facilitate a full recovery from groin soreness. Additionally, Glenn Maxwell will be unavailable as he focuses on rehabilitating an ankle injury. To bolster the squad in Starc’s absence, Spencer Johnson has been included in the ODI roster.


On the other side, South Africa has unveiled a robust squad featuring several returning stars. Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Heinrich Klaasen, and Anrich Nortje are all back in the ODI squad after being rested during the T20Is. The young Dewald Brevis, who marked his T20I debut in the recently concluded series, has also earned a spot in the ODI lineup.
