England vs South Africa 1st Test Live Streaming | 19 Jul 2012(Thursday) – 23 Jul 12 (Monday)
Venue: The Oval
Start Time: 11.00 BST, 15.30 IST
England face off against the South Africans in the 1st Test match of the series at The Oval. A series, which is likely to be extremely explosive as these are two currently most balanced sides in Cricket.
Australia has long been England’s most coveted rivals in Test Cricket but the recent series against Proteas has been very well fought too. There is a possibility that England vs South Africa might become the ultimate challenge in the world of Cricket.
One player who would be raring to go into the series would be Jacques Kallis, as his record in England has not been great. His batting average is less than 30 which is way less than this actual average, which is almost 57. Kallis is great cricketer and he is bound to come good, perhaps the time is now.
Kevin Pietersen has created quite a furor in the recent days, as he demanded to be back in the ODI circuit and is now trying to negotiate a deal with the ECB.
But that’s what makes Kevin Pietersen tick, he is best when he is disturbed. One thing for sure the battle between Dale Steyn and Kevin Pietersen would be some mouth watering stuff.
