The 3-match test series starts on Friday, 16 December at the Wanderers, Johannesburg. Traditionally one of the fastest and bounciest tracks in SA, it looks like much of the same this time around. Coming off a 4-0 drubbing in the ODI`s, where the Indian batsmen failed to cope with the extra pace and bounce of the SA wickets, they now head towards the real stuff- Test match cricket. Some key questions for the series: - will the Indian be able to cope with the 5-man pace attack? - will Graeme Smith, clown prince of SA cricket, actually get off the mark? - will the Indian seamers esp. Sreesanth and Zaheer Khan be more effective during the tests? - will Paul Adams, brought back from the brink of retirement, and plucked out of his provincial B side, actually play a game, and if he does, will he turn one off the square? - will Nicky Boje be the last bloke to follow Damien Martyn`s example, and retire mid-series? - will Dale Steyn continue his upward curve in Test cricket? - will Mickey Mouse Arthur actually come up with a game-plan, or will he rely on "brave cricket" again? - will Shaun Pollock finally crank it up to 60mph again? Anyway, indications are that SA will play at the Wanderers with a 5-man pace attack- Ntini,Steyn, Nel, Kallis and Pollock. Reckon it`ll be too hot to handle for the Indian batsmen.
