South Africa is all set to tour Australia at the start of the month of November that will see the two Southern Hemisphere rivals slug it out for test cricket supremacy and compete in a three match test series. The two sides are expected to produce a riveting contest as some memorable games have been witnessed by cricket fans in the past few years. Australia has played South Africa a lot this year in limited overs with the tri-nation series in the Caribbean and the bilateral series held in South Africa.
Australia did receive their first whitewash at the hands of South Africa who mauled the world champions who look out of sorts and jaded on the tour. South Africa will play two warm games before the start of first test at Perth on 3rd November. The first warm game is a day night affair that will Proteas get experience of playing in day night conditions with the pink ball. The second one will be played at Bellerieve Oval on 12th November and the finale will be a day night affair at the Adelaide Oval.
Australian will be geared to seek retribution for the whitewash suffered at the hands of South Africa as they will be tough unit at home playing in conditions that suits that style of play to a tee. Australia are tipped as favorites as they do possess a phenomenal record at home in recent times in test cricket but South Africa can never counted out as it is the only side that has won a test series on two occasions in Australia. It will be close affair as Aussies will be determined to outgun Proteas in the contest and start their cricketing summer on a right note.
