What are you predicting for this series 2-1 3-0?
The 2012 side is short on career records, but they're in a much better place right now and have form behind them.
The 2007 side hadn't played any cricket for a long time and it showed.
I'm predicting 3-0 to South Africa. Kallis and co. are bound to hurt our bowlers at least a couple of times and I doubt we have the batting to withstand sustained performance from the South African bowlers.
I think there will be bright spots, maybe even whole days, but we will lose all three games.
