South Africa are scheduled to face-off Australia in the second semi-final of the ODI World Cup 2023 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. In their earlier contest during the round-robin stage of the quadrennial spectacle, the Proteas got the better of the Aussies by a whopping margin of 134 runs. These two countries have faced each other multiple times in the ODI World Cup semi-finals in recent years, which have gone in the favour of Australia. Hence, South Africa will be needing to bring their A game forward to secure the big win on November 16.
The batting department of South Africa has attained great success in the ODI World Cup 2023, with the likes of Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, and Aiden Markram being the most consistent among all. The bowling department of the Proteas has had Gerald Coetzee and Keshav Maharaj picking up the bulk of the wickets, helping them secure a spot in the semi-final of the CWC 2023.
Meanwhile, the Australian batting lineup has been bolstered immensely with the match-winning double hundred from Glenn Maxwell against Afghanistan recently in ODI World Cup 2023, while the big names including David Warner and Mitchell Marsh are already in good form at the top of the order. Adam Zampa, the highest wicket-taker in the CWC 2023 currently, has received tremendous support from the rest of the Aussie bowling lineup.
