South Africa outbatted Australia to beat them 5-0 in the ODI series but stand-in captain Faf du Plessis believes they will need to outbowl them if they are to win the Test series next month. After South Africa went through most of last summer sans Dale Steyn or Vernon Philander, they will travel to Australia with both bowlers plus three other frontline seamers, and du Plessis hopes that collectively, they can carry the team to victory.For us to have a successful tour of Australia, Dale Steyn will be the guy to make or break that for us because he is a huge player in that Test team. I am confident he will have a really good series, du Plessis said. His shoulder looks okay - thats going to be the challenge. We need to make sure that he stays fit and he can bowl long periods of time. Test cricket is not just 10 overs, he will need to bowl 18 to 20 overs a day for the next month.Steyn returned, after a broken shoulder kept him out of the England Test and ODI series in January-February, for the World T20, in which he played only two of South Africas four matches. He was left out of the triangular series in the Caribbean, officially rested but by his own admission dropped, and given permission to play in the NatWest T20 Blast instead. He took 11 wickets in five matches for Glamorgan and was then included in South Africas Test series against New Zealand, where his eight wickets in Centurion secured a series win.Although he has not looked his best with the white ball - he played four of the five ODIs against Australia for five wickets at 50.80 with an economy rate of 6.99 and received treatment on the shoulder throughout the series - Australia still considered Steyn remained a threat. Youve always got to respect Dale. He is a world-class bowler, a great athlete and you never want to upset him, David Warner said. He is a guy that can really get on top. He has this spark and this spell in him youve got to get through that and negate what he throws at you.At Test level, du Plessis expects that will be even more difficult for the Australians to do. Dale in Test cricket is a different breed. In one-day cricket, these things are going to happen. KG [Kagiso Rabada] as well, would be the first to say he didnt bowl at his best. In Test cricket its about consistency. When Dale gets that red ball in his hand, he is just a different bowler. He is still our No.1 bowler in Test cricket. Rabada also played in four matches and took five wickets at 52.80 with an economy rate of 7.33. Both Steyn and Rabada were hurt by the game in Durban, where they conceded 96 and 86 runs respectively. Overall, they were overshadowed by Kyle Abbott and Andile Phehlukwayo, who have come to the fore as part of South Africas future. Our bowling attack needs to be fit if we are to win in Australia, du Plessis said.The other members of South Africas pace pack have also had injury concerns. Philanders rehabilitation from torn ankle ligaments kept him out of action for almost three months but he also made a comeback against New Zealand while Morne Morkel has been on the sidelines since July with a back problem. Morkel returned to action in club cricket in Pretoria earlier this month and is currently playing for Titans against Warriors in a first-class match as a fitness test ahead of the Australia tour. He bowled 26 overs in the first innings, and picked three wickets, so all indications are that he will travel to Australia.South Africa have won their last two Tests series in Australia, in 2008-09 and 2012-13, although in very different circumstances. Both times, they were coming off series wins in England. This time, they are in the midst of a rebuilding process and recognise that Australia pose a tougher challenge than before. They will hope to carry some of their ODI momentum into the Tests. Against Australia, any mental edge you can get you will take, du Plessis said. Its the one-percenters that matter.

Nearly four months after they played a pulsating final at the Olympic games in Rio, Carolina Marin and PV Sindhu will resume their rivalry at the Superseries Finals in Dubai starting on Wednesday. The pair have been drawn in the same group for the season ending tournament, featuring the top eight ranked players in the Superseries rankings, and their encounter will climax the group stage of the competition on Friday.The Superseries finals is played in the same format as the ATP & WTA tours year ending events with the players drawn in two groups of four each. At the end of the round robin stage, where they play each other once, the top two players qualify for the semifinals.Although Marin leads Sindhu 5-2 in their head-to-head encounters, she has struggled to maintain her form since the Olympics. A thigh injury sustained at the Denmark Open in October, her first tournament since Rio, has impeded her progress. Marin hasnt reached the final of any of the three tournaments she has competed in since clinching the Olympic Gold. She has in fact lost her top spot in the rankings to Taiwans Tai Tzu Ying, who beat her in a three game semifinal at the Hong Kong Open recently.Sindhu, on the other hand, has been in eye catching form recently. After exiting early from her first two tournaments after the Olympics in Denmark and France, Sindhu produced a sparkling run in China, where she won her first Superseries title and then reached the final in Hongo Kong, where she was beaten by Ying.Having missed a few Superseries events at the start of the year with injury, Sindhu wasnt expecting to even make the cut for Dubai, but these two sizzling performances helped her accumulate enough points to sneak in late. Speaking recently to ESPN, her coach Pullela Gopichand had said he was pleased to see Sindhus evolution as a player, especially the additions she has made to her arsenal of strokes.?While the clash against Marin will be eagerly anticipated, Sindhu will be keen to make a strong start at her fiirst appearance at this elite event.dddddddddddd On Wednesday, she plays Japans Akane Yamaguchi to get her campaign going. Sindhu leads the head to head against Yamaguchi 2-1 and has won both their previous clashes, including one earlier in the year at the Uber Cup.However Yamaguchis notched up some impressive recent results. She won the Korean Open in October and backed that up with another title in Denmark the following week. Though Yamaguchi has lost early at her last three tournaments, the world number 8 will be a tricky first opponent for Sindhu.On Thursday, Sindhu will come up against the rapidly improving Sun Yu of China, who has risen to 6 in the world rankings. The pair have clashed six times and have shared those matches equally. Sindhu won their most recent encounter, when she beat Yu on her home turf in the final of the China Open. It was a bruising three game encounter that lasted nearly 70 minutes before Sindhu clinched it 21-11 in the third game.With seven different players having shared the 12 Superseries events on the womens circuit in 2016, no clear favourite has emerged for the year ending finals. On current form Sindhu will surely be among the leading contenders though Gopichand was cautious in his assessment recently, saying many of her matches in China and Hong Kong had been closely fought where either player could have emerged on the right side of the result. Sindhu had told ESPN that she was elated at finding a place among this select field and the platform will provide her another opportunity to continue her to target a spot in the top five next year and more importantly continue to develop her game.Competition has always been there be it a small stage or big, she said. Meeting the challenges and winning them are the crowning glories that the titles carry. I feel more confident and also I have been working on all my strokes.
