Australia vs South Africa 3rd Test Preview
Australia and South Africa meet in the 3rd and final test in Adelaide on Thursday.
This will be the Proteas 1st ever day night test match with the pink ball although they did have a warm up game which they lost although very little should be read into that.
They were too strong for Australia in the 2nd test in Hobart where they set the tone for the match on day 1 by bowling Australia out for 85. The Proteas never looked back and despite losing a day to rain they wrapped the match up by an innings and 85 runs. They now have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series and the pressure is theoretically off although with the ball tampering row around captain Faf Du Plessis still raging, there should be a fair bit of needle in this one.
Australia look set to make a host of changes as they look for the answers, especially in the batting department. Australia can at least take some day night experience into this game having beaten New Zealand here by 3 wickets last year.

Suggested Bet: A hundred to be scored in the 1st innings – No at 1/1
The ball has generally dominated the bat in this test match and I expect conditions to be tough especially under lights and am betting we won’t get a 3-figure score in the 1st innings.
