Match factsSunday, October 2, 2016, Johannesburg Start time 1000 local (0800 GMT)Big Picture Australia were always going to be vulnerable at the start of this stand-alone ODI series in South Africa. Their priority is to restate their Test pedigree during their home summer against South Africa and Pakistan, a need that has grown stronger because of their recent trouncing in a Test series in Sri Lanka.That much became clear from the moment Cricket Australia chose to rest Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc for the battles to come. Whatever the logic of that, Steve Smith could be forgiven for looking around for them in desperation in the opening ODI at SuperSport Park as Quinton de Kock, destroying good balls and bad, pulverised an Australian attack also missing James Faulkner.De Kocks 178 from 113 balls - the highest ODI score ever made in South Africa and many more records besides - was an immediate indication of the challenge facing Australia. With the absence of AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla - the latter presumably only briefly - from South Africas batting line-up, they might have perceived a gentle introduction, but few opening batsmen these days possess the destructive threat of de Kock, and it was not long before sixes were raining down on the leg-side boundary.A few miles down the road in Johannesburg, Daniel Worrall, Scott Boland and John Hastings will hope for a second outing, although South Australias Joe Mennie and Victorias Chris Tremain are also in the squad and are likely to get an airing at some point in the series. They have all received a warning from Australias bowling coach Ryan Harris about the challenge. National cricket is brutal and if you dont get it right you get eaten up pretty quick, he said.Form guideSouth Africa: WWLWL (last five completed matches, most recent first) Australia: LWWWWPlayers to watchAndile Phehlukwayos second ODI came against a backdrop of new transformation targets which require the selection of a minimum average of 54% black players - of which 18% must be Black African - across the three formats over the season. He showed good command of length at SuperSport Park and took 4 for 44 off his 10 overs, a sound start for a powerfully-built allrounder.South Australian Daniel Worrall was the second leading wicket-taker in last seasons Sheffield Shield. After a comfortable debut against Ireland in Benoni, South Africa asked tougher questions and it will be interesting to see how he responds in Johannesburg.Team news South Africa are monitoring the fitness of Dale Steyn. Although he completed his full allocation in his first ODI since he suffered a shoulder injury while bowling against England last December, he was below his best, left the field twice and on several occasions looked concerned about the shoulder. It was a far cry from his triumphant Test return against New Zealand on the same ground in August. Hashim Amla, who only joined the squad on Wednesday following the birth of his third child, missed Fridays match due to illness but he could return.South Africa (probable) 1 Quinton de Kock, 2 Hashim Amla/Rilee Rossouw, 3 Faf du Plessis, 4 JP Duminy, 5 David Miller, 6 Farhaan Behardien, 7 Andile Phehlukwayo, 8 Wayne Parnell, 9 Dale Steyn, 10 Kagiso Rabada, 11 Imran Tahir.Australias captain Steve Smith gave no indication that there might be changes to Australias line-up after Fridays defeat. Even considering the pummelling that Australias weakened attack received at the hands of Quinton de Kock, or the failure of the batsmen to take advantage of a run-friendly surface, a 48-hour turnaround between matches leaves little time for reassessment.Australia (probable) 1 David Warner, 2 Aaron Finch, 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 George Bailey, 5 Mitchell Marsh, 6 Travis Head, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 John Hastings, 9 Adam Zampa, 10 Daniel Worrall, 11 Scott Boland.Pitch and conditions There have been water restrictions in Johannesburg, leaving groundstaff hoping for some early spring rain to assist with grass growth. It remains to be seen whether this has a detrimental effect on the pitch or, indeed, the outfield. The weekend has been sunny, with 23C forecast for Sunday.Stats and triviaQuinton de Kocks 178 in the first match at SuperSport Park on Friday was South Africas second highest individual score in ODIsSouth Africa achieved their third highest successful chase in that game .Quotes Hopefully there will be a couple more wickets like that in the series. Then we can have some more fun. Quinton de Kock, in boisterous post-match mood after his demolition of Australia in the opening ODI.We got a nice wicket to bat on and we gave some opportunities away… so going forward its the responsibility of one of our top four to post a big total, and if we do that then the team total is going to be big as well.Steve Smith, Australia captain, does the math. Sheldon Rankins Womens Jersey . Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1. Thomas Morstead Jersey .

Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. Marshon Lattimore Jersey . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days.
