South Africa’s record against India in the World Cup has been an enviable 3-0, having convincingly won their matches in three editions (‘92, ‘99 and 2011), but the Proteas are leaving no stone unturned to make it 4-0 when the two teams square off at the MCG on Sunday.

To combat the defending champions, the South African team management has brought in experience worth 26,845 runs and 602 wickets at the international level.The runs are combined of what Messrs Gary Kirsten and Mike Hussey have scored at the international level across formats, while the wickets are Allan Donald’s collection during his 12 years in international cricket.

The trio was seen keeping a hawk eye on the proceedings during South African team’s training session. In fact was keeping a close eye on the batsmen, especially the likes of JP Duminy and Quinton de Kock as they were playing the spinners at the nets. “It’s been a nice experience so far. But I won’t be travelling with the team after this match. I am with them for this match,” said Hussey.

India’s best ever national coach, Kirsten was overseeing the proceedings and also giving his customary throwdowns while Donald was keeping an eye on the bowlers with a specific drill in mind.
