Ever since e Gary Kirsten became the coach of South Africa in June 2011 the country has managed to rise steadily to the top of the International Cricket Council’s rankings. However, South Africa’s performances in the one dayers have been not so good.
South Africa is likely to play as many as 20 one-day internationals before their next Test series, against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates which is also scheduled in the months of October and November.
The South African coach has pledged to sort out the country’s consistent failure to win big tournaments. This is because previously South Africa lost 2-1 at home by New Zealand in their most recent one-day series in spite of winning both of the Tests against the Black Caps by an innings. South Africa’s all-rounder Jacques Kallis will not be seen in action as he is being rested as a part of a program to extend the career of the famous player.
In the coming matches, it will be possible to see South Africa as a more organized team from that which lost to New Zealand. It will also be a much stronger side than the T20 side as it has stars in the form of Dale Steyn, Hashim Amla and also Morne Morkel with Test captain Graeme Smith returns to the squad. In the first match Steyn will be rested and Morkel is doubtful because of a hamstring injury.
