Australia, on the other hand, will look to make the most of their home conditions and trump their Trans-Tasman rivals. The hosts are coming on the back of a humiliating 0-3 ODI series defeat against the Proteas and would be aiming for course correction in that regard.

Meanwhile, Cricket Australia's chief executive Kevin Roberts had informed on Thursday that the ODI series will be played behind closed doors due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
