A tainted Australian team under a new skipper in Tim Paine will look to salvage pride and level the Test series post ball-tampering scandal when they take on South Africa in the fourth Test at Johannesburg on Friday. On the other hand, South Africa would leave no stone unturned to win the Test series 3-1 and rub more embarrassment on hapless Australia. South Africa have only complacency to avoid when they take on Australia in the fourth Test at Johannesburg. South Africa have a strong teams across all departments. South Africa should not take a new-look Australia team lightly and adopt a ruthless approach to win the series 3-1. South Africa would start favourites in the fourth Test as they have been playing quality cricket across all departments. Australia would be under pressure to perform and salvage pride in the series.
Best economical pick – Dean Elgar equaled a world record when he carried his bat through a completed innings for the third time as his team were bowled out for 311. Elgar finished unbeaten on 141, only Desmond Haynes of the West Indies had previously batted unbeaten through a Test innings on three occasions.
Top captains & vice captains – South Africa have one of the most devastating bowling line-ups in the world currently. They have Kagiso Rabada, Morne Morkel & Philander and they are more than handful for a struggling Aussies. The trio took 16 wickets to fall in the third Test at Cape Town. Playing his last test series Morne Morkel grabbed nine for 110 in the 3rd test to help South Africa defeat Australia by 322 runs and take a 2-1 lead in the four-match series. He also won the man of the match award for his outstanding bowling performance. South Africa bowlers would look to heap more pain on Australia by knocking them off in the fourth Test as well.
Smart pick – While Cameron Bancroft was manipulating the state of the ball and doing his utmost to give his side an advantage, AB De Villiers was quietly going about scoring more runs against Australia than any other South African batsman has done to date. De Villiers is South Africa's fourth-highest all-time Test run scorer, and his 352 runs in the series against Australia to date has seen him close the gap on third-placed team-mate, Amla.
Cautious Pick – The form of captain, Faf du Plessis will be of great concern for South Africa as he has only managed 55 runs in six innings so far this series. Pick him in your fantasy team on your own risk.
My XI – Morne Morkel (Captain), Kagiso Rabada (Vice-Captain), AB de Villiers, Aiden Markram, Josh Hazlewood, Vernon Philander, Dean Elgar, Quinton de Kock, Shaun Marsh, Mitchell Starc, Patrick Cummins
