Australia and South Africa will play in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 semi-finals, which promises to be an exciting game.
Australia vs South Africa stats
South Africa is in the semi-finals thanks to strong batting efforts, especially from Quinton de Kock, who has scored 591 runs and is the tournament’s second-highest run scorer. Their bats have more depth because of Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, and Heinrich Klaasen. Kagiso Rabada and Gerald Coetzee are their best bowlers, but spinners Marco Jansen and Keshav Maharaj are also very important, especially against Australia.
Australia has shown that it is tough by winning seven straight games after losing the first two. David Warner (499 runs) and Mitchell Marsh (explosive) are two of their best batters. Adam Zampa has taken 22 wickets, and Hazlewood, Cummins, and Starc are the other three strong seam bowlers. The Eden Gardens pitch is known to help seamers, which could help Australia’s bowling style.

Australia vs South Africa match prediction
The pitch at Eden Gardens should be good for hitting at first, but it will slow down over time, making it hard to score. It’s likely that spinners will be very important, and seamers will have to change to fit in. There may be some cloud cover and a chance of rain, which could make things more difficult, especially once the lights are on.
Considering the head-to-head statistics and recent performances, the ICC prediction for the upcoming ODI World Cup 2023 match between Australia and South Africa is as follows:
- Australia’s Edge: With a resilient comeback in the tournament, marked by seven consecutive victories, Australia’s batting strength and effective bowling, especially from Adam Zampa and the seam trio, give them a formidable edge.
- South Africa’s Strength: Their strong batting lineup, led by Quinton de Kock and supported by consistent middle-order batsmen, coupled with a well-rounded bowling attack, makes them a challenging opponent.
Final Australia vs South Africa Prediction
Australia have every chance of winning and reaching the final against the winner of the India vs New Zealand semi-final, given their current form and favorable conditions at Eden Gardens, which are well in line with their style of play and recent performances.
This match is poised to be a tightly contested encounter, reflecting the storied rivalry and strengths of both teams.
