It Begins……


The South Africans have landed in Australia…. and we’re in for a treat. 4 Months of top class cricket on the menu. If you ask me , South Africa vs Australia is now the premier test series in world cricket , the Ashes being a predictably one sided affair , despite the hype of the British Media. And what of our chances ?
 
Well Graeme Smith is actually the best modern captain we’ve had ( I don’t know why so many criticize him at home , especially when he’s so well respected overseas ). The top order is solid. If there’s a concern , it would be the bowling. And I’m not talking about the usual "lack of variety" comment aimed at the SA attack – I just think that Morkel and co aren’t a reliable back up for Steyn and Ntini. We’ll see. If the bowlers do their part, the batsmen will back them up, an we’ll definitely be competitive. Watch Amla surprise everyone on this tour – about time a Durban boy did well in Australia.
 
My prediction ? Drawn series down under , 1-0 to South Africa back home.
