So...1-0 to the hosts. South Africa were frankly brilliant against Australia in the first of their ODI internationals and we'll help you discover how to watch every minute of the rematch with a South Africa vs Australia cricket live stream - no matter where in the world you are.

Following Saturday's resounding victory, the Proteas have won nine of their last ten ODI meetings with the Aussies, including their nail-biting 10-run victory in the World Cup last summer. Australia, meanwhile, will be looking to push on from their 2-1 series win in the T20 series over South Africa earlier this week.

South Africa vs Australia 2020 ODI series - where and when

The three-match One Day International series takes place at three different cricketing venues across South Africa.

1st ODI - South Africa won by 74 runs

2nd ODI - March 4 (Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein )

3rd ODI- March 7 (Senwes Park, Potchefstroom )

The first two ODIs are day/night matches with play set to start at 1pm SAST local time. That means a 10pm AEDT start Down Under (or 11am GMT). The 3rd ODI is a regular day match and starts at 10am SAST (7pm AEDT).

The Aussie trio of David Warner, Aaron Finch and Steven Smith have looked particularly formidable in recent months and could give the visitors the edge here.

That threesome looks likely to be supplemented by Marnus Labuschagne, who is et to come into the middle order.

The hosts are set to shake up their bowling attack from the one that faced England, and should be boosted by the return of Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada.
