In the lead up to the ongoing domestic One-Day Cup I was not convinced that the competition was benefiting from the presence of the rookie-laden Cricket Australia XI.
The ODI whitewash in South Africa highlighted how badly Australia’s pace stocks had been hit by injuries. This also means Australia have limited pace options for the upcoming Tests against South Africa.
Australia have been whitewashed twice in a matter of months across two different formats. But only the debacle in Sri Lanka is of significant concern. There is no need to panic about the 5-0 ODI loss in South Africa.
Australia’s shambolic ODI tour of South Africa continued last night as they made 167 on a blameless pitch.
The Australian Test team has suffered several series whitewashes in recent years – Sri Lanka 2016, Pakistan 2014 and India 2013. But the ODI side has never, in history, been clean-swept in a five-match bilateral series.
Australia must beat South Africa in Durban today to keep alive the five-match ODI series. In winning the first two matches, the Proteas’ pace attack has underlined what a major threat they will pose in Australia this summer.
