    Finally, a 4-match series between these two teams.

    Hope the quicks on both sides stay fit.

    Imagine both steyn and Patto coming back from injuries for this one.

    Steyn Morkel Philander Rabada Maharaj vs Starc Haze Cummins Patto Lyon

    AB vs Smith. Imo no 1 batsman vs No 2.

    Mouth-watering clashes.

    Not that Smith has anything to prove but watching the best batsman of our times against quite possibly the greatest pace attack since the 80s would be the closest thing we get to "how would Lara/Tendulkar/Ponting face the WI quartet"

    Pattinson won't be back for a long time given the nature of the surgery. Hoping to see Steyn

    Would be an excellent series.

    Nah... slowest, lowest pitch amongst the bigger cities; but still gives results, has its own characteristics. Not a pitch you play the sub-continent teams on, but perfect against the Aussies .

    Wish it got more Tests, but when SA keep only playing 3 Test series, difficult for the ground to get games before the Wanderers, Newlands, Centurion, Kingsmeade.

    PE atleast is a bit abrasive and brings reverse into play at times. Variety is good. Every track having pace and bounce would get boring.

    Would possibly imo, be the best assembly of bowlers since WI toured pakistan in 1990. In the 3rd test the bowling attacks were: Bishop, Ambrose, Walsh and Marshall vs Imran, Wasim, Waqar and Qadir. Ordinarily, i wouldn't encourage rsa to play 5 bowlers and possibly be a batsman short against Australias formidable attack but despite their ashes exploits, i still think that australia has a very fickle batting lineup . I'm actually looking forward to this series more than most others.

    Awta but now rsa has a complete attack with rabada and maharaj. Imo ,much better than what smith faced before, even if steyn doesn't fully recover in time.

    Smith him self was half of the batsman though

    He did face Rabada at home and had a reasonably quiet series by averaging 40 something (Complete failure according to Blocky) but that included being stranded for 48 out of **** all team total at Hobart
