It’s been nearly 8 months since the Proteas took to the field in
the longer format of the game. That 3-0 series win over Pakistan seems
like forever ago and in a few days time the same rivals lock horns in a
two Test series. The unusually long break the Proteas have experienced
also a result of the Test portion of the Sri Lanka tour being cancelled.
The Pakistan team seem unsettled at the moment (are they ever not?),
after having dropped a few of their under-performing players. This is an
ideal opportunity for new coach Russell Domingo and fit-again skipper
Graeme Smith to continue the unbeaten run of the Proteas Test team.
After the past few months of endless limited overs and T20 action it’s a
relief to have the 5-day game back. I’m hoping there’s other cricket
purists like myself who feel the same.
