Cricket series could interest people on South Africa holidays

Sporting fans may be tempted to check out the Test series between Australia and South Africa.

People going on South Africa holidays can sample top-quality cricket throughout the country, with Cape Town, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria and Durban hosting games.

This mean travellers to the nation, regardless of where they are, should still be able to make it to a contest if they so wish.

There will be two Test matches, two Twenty20 internationals and four one-day internationals.

Both teams are in a rebuilding stage and Australia will be led by Michael Clarke for the first time since taking over from Ricky Ponting.

The tour gets underway on October 13th and is set to run November 21st, while the last time the baggy greens came to South Africa they left with a 2-1 Test victory.

One of the stars of the series could be Jacques Kallis, who is currently ranked as the number one batsman in the world.
