4 Test match series between Poms and South Africans will be an enthralling affair as both teams have decided to focus on the longer format of the game to hone the cricketing skills. Hashim Amla will be the key at the top to provide solid start to the team. In addition, presence of FAF in the middle order and AB de Villiers provide amazing stability to the Proteas. They are well equipped to win the test series however the hosts can turn around the whole scenario if Anderson takes early wickets with his fine swing bowling.
Dale Steyn will relish the English condition as it provides amazing swing to the red cherry. Therefore, get ready for a hot summer when both sides will meet in a tense encounter. Broad has to complement the skills of Anderson from the other end and make sure that the batsmen do not get easy runs. The toughest part is to get Amla out as he has the patience and wherewithal to bat day in and day out the same vigor.
Similarly on the bowling front Philander along with Tahir may pose serious problems for the host team. The leg spinner is a class act and is not afraid of attacking the batsmen. Only option left for root and Cook is to attack him and not loose early wickets. Once the initial juice in the pitch dries off, batting becomes easy, therefore patience is the name of the game.
Spectators will have a whirl of time as each match would be exciting and edge of the seat entertainment. English team looks slightly off color in the spin department as it has only Moin Ali in its arsenal. Saffers will try to exploit the vulnerability to the hilt and win the series from thereon; however English may have some aces up the sleeve.
