The surface will be good to bat on early on, but it's expected to get slower and take some spin as the match progresses. The captain that wins the toss should look to bat first.
Cloudy skies are anticipated throughout the day but rain is expected to stay away.
After a disappointing loss in the three-match T20I series, South Africa will hope to get back to winning ways in the first ODI. With Faf du Plessis and Rassie van der Dussen rested, the likes of Janneman Malan and JJ Smuts will have to step up. Temba Bavuma is also expected to return to the side after missing the T20I series.
Australia, meanwhile, are flying high, but they will be wary of their ODI record against South Africa, having lost eight of their last nine matches.
