Hoping for it to be similar to the ashes contest of 2005 which was by far the best Test series I had ever seen.

I like Test matches where bowlers dominate majority of the sessions and the batters are up against it from ball one and this really could turn out to be one such series.

I think England still holds the edge because with the presence of Anderson, Broad, Finn/Bresnan, Swann, the attack doesn't really have a weakling. In the South African attack, Steyn and Morkel are obviously world class but we would have to see if Taheer can step up in the spin department or if Philander can continue his magical run of wickets against the English top order. Under overcast conditions the toss could be vital in the first test. Looking forward to some good old test cricket for the weekend.
