Inside Sport - - 4 Things You Must Not Miss -

One thing to ap­pre­ci­ate about Aus­tralia play­ing South Africa in Test cricket – un­like other se­ries against the rank­ing pow­ers of the long-form game, this is the un­com­mon one in its even bal­ance. Even against su­perb Proteas sides, the Aussies have been able to win away; the flip side of that is, the Saf­fers have been able to do the very same to us on our soil. Hat tip to the mo­ment of san­ity in the cricket sched­ule which al­lowed for a four-game se­ries (much be er than three), with the third Test (from Mar 22) headed to New­lands. And the fourth Test (from Mar 30) will hope­fully see Pat Cum­mins (above) make his re­turn to Wanderers, where he made his aus­pi­cious, man-of-the-match de­but seven years ago.
