Weather and Pitch Report

Lucknow could experience sunny and hot weather on 12 October. The temperature will range from 26 to 38 degrees Celsius. There will be 14% cloud cover, though the possibility of rain is nil.

The wicket here makes for an even battle between bat and ball. Both seamers and spinners can expect some help. Batting becomes easier once a batter has judged the pace of the wicket.

Australia vs South Africa Today Prediction: Australia to Win

In Marsh and Warner, Australia have a pair of attacking openers who could take the game away in the power play overs. The steady presence of Steve Smith has a calming effect in the middle order. Greene, Maxwell and Carey will ensure a competitive total on board, if Australia bat first. Starc and Cummins can also bat, giving the side great batting depth.

South Africa have some batting stars of their own. Opener De Kock would want to prove a point or two in his last World Cup. Markram, Klaasen, Van der Dussen and Miller are experienced campaigners. Klaasen recently scored a massive 174 to hand his team a win against Australia in Centurion. Skipper Bavuma has also been in brilliant batting form.

On paper, South Africa have the stronger bowling line up. The likes of Rabada and Ngidi can lead the attack effectively. South Africa will miss the services of the injured Nortje. However, they have the likes of Janson and Coetzee to compensate. In the spin department, the Proteas have two world class bowlers in Maharaj and Shamsi.

By contrast, Australia have a few questions to answer in their bowling strategy. In the absence of Agar, the onus will be on Maxwell to deliver as Zampa’s spin partner. Among the seamers, skipper Cummins has yet to find his rhythm after his return from injury rehab.

However, as a winning package, Australia have the overall edge.
