WHAT a pity it is that Australia and South Africa no longer play full Test series against each other. Admittedly, it is not easy because both countries play in the same months and want to stage important matches in that period.

Even so it is a shame that two powerful sides cannot take part in a proper series and must instead play three matches in three weeks and then dash back to Africa to play three more matches in a similar period and then forget about the whole thing for a few years.

Three matches, three rounds of golf, three rounds of three minutes, three sets, three days, three acts, none of it works, none of it is complete. Three matches whet the appetite. Too much depends on the first result because the losers are under immediate pressure. Three is better than two, which is not that hard, and otherwise is entirely unsatisfactory.
