Table toppers Australia will take on an already ousted South African side in the final game of the group stage of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. A win here for Australia would further seal their spot at the top of the table whereas a South Africa win and if India beat Sri Lanka, the Aussies might slip down to second place.

Barring the game against India, where they failed to chase down 350, Australia have been ruthless and played like champions. Aaron Finch and David Warner have amassed heaps of runs against quality oppositions. They are currently placed at number three and number four in the leading run-scorers list with 516 runs and 504 respectively. On the bowling front, Mitchell Starc has been in terrific form right throughout the tournament and has picked up 24 wickets at an average of 15.54. With a number one spot to play for they would come all guns blazing and look to end the group stage on a high note.

Meanwhile, South Africa have had problems of plenty. Their batting has been heavily reliant on the likes of Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis, have not been consistent and have been knocked out of the tournament way before than what they would have expected. Also injuries to some of their bowlers and Kagiso Rabada's inconsistency have led to their downfall. They would look to end the campaign with a win and dismantle Australia at the top of the table.
