Aussies 'welcoming' the Proteas? Forget it. This is war
DURBAN – When they land in Sydney this week, Faf du Plessis and his Proteas one-day international squad can expect the sort of welcome reserved for Ashes touring sides. They will be confronted as soon as the gates open, and that will not relent when the opening press conference kicks off.
More’s the pity that this is only a limited trip, in overs and in significance.
On the back of the events that precipitated our autumn, a return Test series would have been a hot ticket to sell, especially after the stairs of Durban, the shoulder in Port Elizabeth, the shame of Newlands, and the massacre at the Bullring.
