Melbourne - Test great Shane Warne says home advantage will be the key factor in next month's cricket Test series between Australia and South Africa.

Warne said very little currently separates Australia, England, India and South Africa at Test level and series results often pivoted on home advantage.

Warne said the test series, which starts in Brisbane on November 9 "will be a great contest. It will be the bowlers who are on display for both teams, they will really Test the batsmen's techniques."
