South Africa win the toss and bowl
Get set, everyone. We’re on our means. So mentioned the band Taxiride in 1999. Whether they have been speaking a few checklist Australian shedding streak in one-day cricket we’ll by no means know. In reality it’s already a checklist for Australia, the streak status at seven losses. That’s a part of 10 losses in 11 fits, and 19 losses within the final 21. But the streak may turn into 8 nowadays. Or can they snap it?
South Africa is the opponent, Adelaide is the venue. Australia gained right here towards England previous within the yr however appeared very ropey doing it, just about bowled out chasing a paltry goal. That tells the tale of the previous couple of years: the bowling has been respectable (except for conceding a world-record rating towards England in June) however the batting has been frail. There aren’t any in a single day answers to that.
As we wait to start out, let’s imagine why nobody can watch those video games on customary tv. Or on present shape, whether or not that could be for the most productive.
