Australia and South Africa both want to take lead from 3 ODI

Third ODI is to be played on today between Australia and South Africa who leveled the series with 1-1 in a 5 match series and 3rd ODI is to be played in Canberra and both the teams are looking forward to register another win in this match. Australia won first match comfortably but struggled in the second ODI scoring 154 runs where South Africa chased. Australia lost Clarke who was suffering from injury and other batsmen were not in good touch other than Bailey and Marsh. On the other hand South Africa batsmen were also not looking in good form who batted very uncomfortably in 2nd ODI want to get all their batsmen into good touch. When coming to bowling both the teams look very strong with Nathan Counter- Nile bowled well in 1st ODI with 4/48 while in 2nd ODI Morkel of South Africa picked 5/21 and Hazlewood of Australia registered career best 5/31. Australia made a few changes to the squad, bringing in Pat Cummins and Doherty in place of Mitchell Johnson and Nathan Lyon. With Mitchell Starc also in the 15-member team, the hosts look strongly. On the other side South Africa are not likely to make any changes to their playing eleven.
