Heinrich Klaasen’s monumental innings of 174 runs lit up the SuperSport Park as South Africa knocked Australia down in the 4th ODI by a massive 164 runs to take the series to the decider. The proteas were going at a decent pace, scoring 120 runs for the loss of 3 wickets, then Heinrich Klaasen walked in and changed the dynamics of the game by sending the ball out of the park with ease and he was accompanied by David Miller in the middle who struck an aggressive 82* runs from just 45 balls as they posted a colossal 416 runs, their 7th 400 plus score in ODIs. In response their frontline pacers, Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada did the bulk of the damage, picking up 7 wickets between them to keep the visitors for just 252 runs. As per their rotation policy, skipper Temba Bavuma who missed the 4th ODI is expected to return to the playing eleven on Sunday.
Australia who were high on confidence after gaining a 2-0 lead were brought down to the earth as they suffered massive 111 and 164 run losses in the 3rd and 4th ODIs respectively. They were totally on the receiving end in the 4th ODI and ended up conceding 416 runs in the stipulated 50 overs with their lead spinner Adam Zampa going for more than 11 runs an over. With the World Cup less than a month away, they are testing their bench strength which didn’t work well in the last couple of games. Adding to their injury list, Travis Head has fractured his hand and has been ruled out of the decider. Alex Carey is back in the form after an excellent 99 runs in the 4th ODI which will boost their batting. With plenty of resources in their bank, they need to find the best balance to beat inform Proteas.
