  • Australia vs South Africa 1st test

    South Africa playing 11: South Africa need to win atleast a test in this series to stand a chance to qualify for the final of the WTC. They have been the standout bowling unit in the present WTC cycle but their batting has been horrendous to say the least. They would need their skipper Dean Elgar to have a big series if they are to compete in this series. Their batting is inexperienced at this point in time. It is going to be a tough series for the Proteas.
