South Africa v Australia: Preview, video streaming and Live score, 4th ODI

Host South Africa is ahead after take the lead in the third one-day. At this moment they are in the leading the series by 2-1. Although SA lost to Aus in the first one-day international cricket match at Kingsmead, Durban, on 3 April 2009 by 141 runs. The 4th match is the series result confirmed match for the host but if Australia win then the fifth and final match will be important to all. When South Africa visited Australia, they beat the host 4-1. Although the host is still all head but if Aus could win the 4th and 5th ODI then the result will go to Australia.

It seems that it is difficult the visitors because they are not in good form. In the test series they showed good performances and able to beat the SA in their home grounds which is almost impossible.

Australia could not show their exact proficiently in the Twenty20 crickets and everybody will shout with me in same voice. During the Twenty20 world Championship they had to bow down their head to India in spite of heavy fight in the semi-final. But at this moment all of their efficient crickets are not in the team even who are in still now they all are out of form.


In the first one-day Australia beat South Africa profoundly of 141 runs. Really this is a big achievement to them. But last two match defeats depressed more. I think they will come back to the series by winning the 3rd match that is going to hold at Port Elizabeth on April 13, 2009.


Ten Sports will broadcast the match live for the Subcontinent’s cricket fans. And, some websites will show text commentary live during the match running time even you can get preview and analysis through the websites.

South Africa’s winning rate of last five matches is very stable and lost only a single match. Most probably all the matches were along side Australia. After finishing the series with SA, Australia played one-day matches with the neighbors New Zealand when they won the series bout one match was not result from this view Australia just get loss in the previous two matches.


Winning records of Australia at St George's Park, Port Elizabeth is very balanced. It just lost one one-day match along with South Africa as well as they played with the Sri Lanka and New Zealand too. Among the nine matches Australia played seven matches and a single match will Sri Lanka and New Zealand.  Australia last met to South Africa on Mar 5, 2006 and won for 24 runs. The next match will be the 10th match of Aus but 8th match.
