The third game of the three-match One-day International series between South Africa and Australia will be played at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom.
The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (08:00AM GMT) (01:30 PM IST). This match will be live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. Live Streaming will be available on Sony LIV.
Just like the first two games in Paarl and Bloemfontein, another slowish track awaits both the teams in Potchefstroom. While the track will have enough runs to keep batsmen interested, spinners might come into play as the game wears on.
Average first innings score: 227 (In 26 ODIs played at the venue)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 14, Lost – 10, N/R-2
