The Proteas cannot seem to catch a break in the home series against the mighty Australians as they lost the first ODI, a game they had a high chance of securing a victory. This came on the backdrop of a whitewash in the T20 series which does not bode well for them ahead of the World Cup in India. The South African side will be eager for a win to gain some much-needed confidence and lift the morale of the side.  Australia was 113/7 in pursuit of 223 when Marnus Labuschagne played an incredible innings of 80 to help his side win. Marnus Labuschagne Makes Strong Case for ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Squad After His Match-Winning Knock in SA vs AUS 1st ODI 2023

Temba Bavuma scored a brilliant century to showcase once again what a player he can be under pressure when his side needs him the most. Aiden Markram and Rassie Van der Dussen got out cheaply and the duo needs runs to justify their place in the playing eleven. Kagiso Rabada, Marco Jansen, Lungi Ngidi and Gerald Coetzee were amongst the wickets but in the end their splendid bowling efforts were not enough.

Marnus Labuschagne came in as a concussion substitute for Cameron Green and won them the game. The middle-order player has been surprisingly left out of the ODI plans but the innings showcased why he is a perfect fit for them ahead of the World Cup. Josh Hazelwood was the leading wicket-taker with 3 wickets and all eyes will be on him as he takes the field this evening.
