Australia in SA
Poor home record motivates SA
Cape Town - Proteas batsman Hashim Amla
says their poor home record since re-admission against Australia is extra motivation for the three-Test series starting in Centurion on Wednesday.
South Africa's last home Test series victory over Australia was way back in the 1969/70 season when Ali Bacher
's charges won 4-0.
However, since South Africa's re-admission in the 1991/92 season, the Proteas have hosted Australia in six Test series, with the visitors winning four and two being drawn.
Amla told Die Burger's website
that they'd like to set that record straight.
"It's not as though we don't know how to beat them," he said. "We did win the last two away series against them (in 2008/09 and 2012/13) and we know we can achieve success against them.
"We don't feel any extra pressure because we haven't beaten them here."
Play starts from 10:30 on Wednesday.
