South Africa and Australia will begin their preparation for the ICC World Cup 2023 with a five-match series starting on Thursday, September 7 in Bloemfontein. This will be an important five-match assignment for both the Proteas and the Mitchell Marsh-led side given they both haven't played ODIs for more than five months. While Australia are still injury-ridden with four of their first-choice players missing the whole tour including regular skipper Pat Cummins and vice-captain Steve Smith.
South Africa, on the other hand, will be playing at full-strength with the likes of Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje coming back. Having lost the T20I series 3-0, South Africa will be keen to give it back to the Australians, especially when they are without their key players.
