South Africa faces Aussies in the first ODI on Feb 26

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Feb 24 (UNI) South Africa will have revenge on their mind while facing the Aussie juggernaut in the five ODI series starting from February 26.

All the matches in the series will be telecast live on ESPN Star Sports. The ODIs will be followed by a three-match Test series beginning on March 16 in Cape Town.

Following their thumping VB series victory, the Aussies are high on confidence and the return of Adam Gilchrist to his old demolishing self is an added assurance to them.

On the other hand the Proteas found the going really tough in the VB series and finished behind Australia and Sri Lanka. While the two teams are almost at par in the shorter version of the game the Aussies have an advantage in the Tests winning 20 of their previous 39 encounters. But the South Africans might also feel secured with Jacques Kallis and Makhaya Ntini returning to the team.

However, other than the game itself the crowds have remained in the focus with the Proteas' fans vowing to return the racial taunts faced by their team form the Australian crowd during their tour.
