4th Test, Wanderers in Johannesburg Match Preview

Playfantasy – 1st paragraph

March 30 – April 3, 1:30 PM IST

Amid ball-tampering outrage, South Africa lock horns with depleted Australia in the fourth and the final Test at Johannesburg. The Cape Town Test will be remembered for ball-tampering and what the incidents that followed.

Cameron Bancroft, Steven Smith and David Warner have been sent home. It is up to the remaining members of the team to get out in the middle to regain the respect of the fans and cricket enthusiasts around the world.

Australia started the tour on the front foot, beating the hosts by 118 runs. But, the home side came back stronger and now lead the 4-match series 2-1.

Speaking of the pitch, the Wanderers pitch was rated poor by the ICC in the Test against India for excessively steep and unpredictable bounce and seam movement. A green wicket is expected.
