Great series in prospect
I sincerely home this home and away series (3 Tests apiece) is as keenly contested on the field as it already is off it. Cricinfo has a preview, and this paragraph summed up the contest so far:
Symcox expects more harsh words on this tour; Smith would be disappointed if he
didn't receive any, and Warne would be happy to give some more work to South
African psychologists. It all points to more feather-ruffling, brotherly
elbowing and verbal intensity. Despite Malcolm Speed's bizarre intervention,
both teams will find it satisfyingly gripping.
Australia are looking to continue their rebuilding after the Ashes, and South Africa led by Graeme Smith and a good pace attack looks good. But Warne holds the key. SA suck at playing spin, and Warne loves getting the South Africans out - perhaps he sees Cullinan's face every time he runs in to bowl! Now if only the time difference between the UK (where I live) and Aus was more manageable!
