The final match of the 2019 Cricket World Cup group stage will see Australia take on South Africa at Old Trafford.
The Australians are favourites to win the cup and will make sure of first place in the standings with a win in Manchester.
Both David Warner and Aaron Finch sit inside the top five batsmen in this year’s World Cup, while Mitchell Starc leads all comers in the bowling charts.

The inquest is already underway in the South African camp after yet another big miss at a major tournament.
The Proteas started CWC 2019 with three consecutive losses and never looked like reaching the semi-finals, especially with the weather against them.
Faf du Plessis’ men beat Sri Lanka last time out and will hope to salvage some pride by raining on Australia’s parade.
Australia vs South Africa top runscorer odds
David Warner @ $3.75
As has been the case all tournament, Warner is in the box seat to make the most runs in this match. The pace and swing of Kasigo Rabada will worry Aaron Finch, leaving his opening partner as the more likely option. Warner will want to take his game to another level heading into the CWC semi-finals.
Rassie van der Dussen @ $7
One of South Africa’s strengths is the batting in the middle order. Van der Dussen has already saved a few innings at this tournament with his hard hitting and level head. He can come in at four or even at six – it doesn’t affect his style of play. If the top-order players struggle against the Aussie quicks, then it’s Rassie to the rescue again.
Australia vs South Africa top wicket-taker odds
Mitchell Starc @ $3
Not only has Starc taken the most wickets during this year’s World Cup, he has done so by a staggering margin. The NSW left-armer has taken seven more wickets than the next best bowler, all but confirming he will finish as the CWC 2019 top wicket-waker. Tail-enders struggle to hit Starc and the South Africans are no exception.
Kasigo Rabada @ $3.50
The young quickie for South Africa has been the best bowler for his nation besides Chris Morris. His pace and length are very difficult to deal with, but it’s when he hits his lines perfectly that he becomes near-impossible to defend. If he can get Finch out early, he could go on for a big haul.
