Australia vs South Africa 5th ODI Highlights on 12 October 2016, Watch AUS vs SA 5th ODI Cricket Highlights 2016. The fifth and final ODI match between South Africa and Australia will get underway on Wednesday at Newlands in Cape Town with the tourists staring down the barrel of a whitewash.

South Africa has been ruthless in the series with both bat and ball, dominating all facets of the game against the number one ranked ODI team in the world. After securing the series win, they opted to rest a string of first choice players, and still managed to give the Australia a hiding. It was the bowling in particular that was impressive, with Phangiso and Shamsi doing an excellent job in the spin department as backup for Imran Tahir. The only player perhaps still lacking some form is Behardien, who might get a chance higher up the order, as a knock out in the middle will do him the world of good. Rilee Rossouw will also be eager to impress with the bat in hand, after being included in the South African test squad. Faf du Plessis will need to fire up his players, as Australia will come out hard to avoid the first whitewash ever in an ODI series against South Africa.

Inconsistency in all departments has cost the Australian team dearly on tour, and they just haven’t been able to fire as a team. Finch and Warner showed some of their danger at the top of the order, but received little support from the middle order. Despite scoring a century in the series Australian Captain Steven Smith looks to be frustrated out in the middle, perhaps about not having his number one bowlers at his disposal. Despite working for them in the past, it seems as though the rotation policy the Australian selectors make use have might have come back to haunt them, and they will need to reconsider, as it seems the backup is not what they thought.
