Australia brace for South African pace in first Test since ‘Sandpaper-gate’ series | Cricket News – Times of India

BRISBANE: Australia will face one of cricket's most hostile pace attacks when they play South Africa at Test level from Saturday for the first time since the infamous "Sandpaper-gate" series. The tourists boast fast bowlers Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi and Marco Jansen -- all capable of firing 140 kph (90 mph) rockets down the wicket at the Gabba in Brisbane. That's in stark contrast to the West Indies, who failed to trouble the hosts in a 164-run defeat at Perth followed by a 419-run hammering in Adelaide last week. Steve Smith, who will hand back the Australian captaincy to a fit-again Pat Cummins, said meeting South Africa would be a "good challenge". "Hopefully we can continue the way we've started the summer," said Smith, who will pad up against the visitors for the fi...

T20 World Cup India vs South Africa: Bounce the buzzword as India take on South Africa in Perth | Cricket News – Times of India

Pace a factor, but the performance of both the teams' top order may well decide the gamePERTH: It is unusually cold here for late October. Perth is famous for the Freemantle Doctor, the cooling afternoon sea breeze which is strongest in December and January and likes to influence Test-match sessions at the WACA (now known as the Optus Stadium). On this day it's a different wind, one with a serrated edge to it, which adds to the chill factor and makes everyone rush for their hoodies. It is late afternoon and already overcast and drizzling when Rahul Dravid walks up to the net bowlers. They have been bunched together for long, whispering among themselves, waiting for India's cricketers to arrive. "What've we got here, boys," Dravid asks with a smile. "Pace, sir," says one, rubbing his han...

Nortje didn't forget to mention that as an attack, they tick all the boxes.

Marco Jansen replaces injured Dwaine Pretorius in South Africa’s T20 World Cup squad

Left-arm quick Marco Jansen has been included in South Africa’s 15-member squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia, the country’s cricket board announced on Wednesday. The 22-year-old pacer replaced all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius, who was ruled out of the T20 World Cup after sustaining an injury in his left thumb during the recently concluded T20I series against India. Jansen was initially part of the travelling reserves and will be replaced by pacer Lizaad Williams, Cricket South Africa (CSA) said in a media release. Jansen represented South Africa in just one T20I during their tour of India in June this year. He had taken one wicket and conceded 38 runs in the Rajkot match. Jansen was part of the T20I squad in the recent series against India but didn’t get a game. He replaced P...

England vs South Africa: 17 wickets fall on Day 3 of series decider

England stumbled to a 36-run lead after a remarkable, emotionally charged third day of the deciding test against South Africa that saw 17 wickets fall and cricket pay its respects to Queen Elizabeth II in a moving pre-match tribute on Saturday. After bundling out the Proteas for 118 midway through the second session at the Oval, England got to 154-7 by the time bad light brought an early end to play in the third test. The match — and a series locked at 1-1 — is very much in the balance in what has essentially become a three-day test after Day 1 was washed out entirely and Day 2 was canceled as a mark of respect following the death of the queen at the age of 96 on Thursday. “We knew it was only going to be a three-day game,” England fast bowler Stuart Broad said, “so we had to play some...

3rd Test: Ollie Robinson strikes before Marco Jansen stars for South Africa on Day 3 | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Ollie Robinson returned his best England figures before South Africa hit back in the third and deciding Test at the Oval as 17 wickets fell on Saturday after cricket paid its respects to Britain's Queen Elizabeth II. Sussex seamer Robinson took 5-49 in 14 overs, his third five-wicket innings haul in 11 career Tests, as South Africa were dismissed for just 118. Veteran quick Stuart Broad enjoyed a return of 4-41. Yet an extraordinary third day -- but the first active one in the game -- finished with England 154-7, a lead of just 36 runs. Left-arm quick Marco Jansen, who had top-scored for the Proteas with 30 after he was unluckily left out of the second Test, took the first four England wickets en route to 4-34 in 11 overs. Fast bowler Kagiso Rabada then captured the key wicket o...

First day of England-South Africa third Test washed out | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: The first day of the third and deciding Test between England and South Africa at The Oval was washed out by rain on Thursday with no play possible. England won the toss and put South Africa into bat only for a shower to sweep in and put a stop to proceedings minutes before the players took to the field. A frustrating day of covers on and off followed before an official announcement came at 15.45GMT saying no play would be possible. More rain is forecast for London on Friday, though the weekend prospects look brighter. The series is level at 1-1, with both Tests finishing inside three days. South Africa won the first by an innings and 12 runs at Lord’s only to be hammered by an innings and 85 runs in the second at Old Trafford. England have brought in debutant batsman Harry Brook...

South African speedster Nortje relishes generating fiery pace in Test win | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: South African speedster Anrich Nortje said he relished bowling at speeds rarely seen in English conditions, after he was timed at 148 kph in his team’s crushing innings defeat of England in their first Test at Lord’s on Friday. Nortje ripped through the heart of the home batting, taking three wickets in 10 balls at one point, as England slumped to 149 all out in their second innings to lose the Test inside three days. Nortje’s average speed in the over where he dismissed the dangerous Jonny Bairstow was 148 kph, making it the quickest over England have had to face at home in the last decade of test cricket, according to the analytics website CricViz.
