Preview

Australia (AUS) will be hosting South Africa (SA) in the first Test match at The Gabba in Brisbane starting on December 17. Australia beat West Indies in their latest two-match home Test series by 2-0 with a dominant all-round display in both matches. The world no.1 Test batter Marnus Labuschagne scored 502 runs from four innings while spinner Nathan Lyon took 12 wickets. Captain Pat Cummins missed the second match with an injury but is declared fit for the first Test against South Africa.

South Africa lost the three-match Test series against England by 2-1 but rank third in the current ICC Test team's chart. The Proteas have won their last three Test series in Australia and have won the last three Tests as well. But they last played Tests against Australia four years ago and now will find it difficult to dominate the current world no.1 Test team.
