After getting blown away by a whirlwind knock of 174 from Heinrich Klaasen, Australia now face him in the fifth and final one-day international at the historic Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. With the series level at 2-2, the decider sets up an exciting finish to what has been a rollercoaster of a five-match ODI series.

Speaking in detail about the last game in Centurion, the home side batted first and posted a mammoth total of 416/5 on the board in their allotted 50 overs. The middle-order batter Klaasen hammered 174 off just 83, including 13 fours and as many maximums. Explosive left-hander David Miller also joined the party to smash an unbeaten 82 off just 45.

In reply, Alex Carey top-scored for Australia as he fell just one short of a well-deserved century. The left-hander struck 99 off 77 but failed to get any support from the other batters. Pacers Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada picked up four and three wickets, respectively, as South Africa dismissed Australia for 252 in 34.5 overs. Heading into the World Cup, both sides will look to claim a victory here and win the series 3-2, which will help them gain massive confidence and momentum.

Meanwhile, here are some of the important stats and numbers ahead of the 5th ODI between South Africa and Australia:
