The Big Bash has down the drain, despite being given the primary summer month of January. Visiting Test teams aren't competitive. India might have used up their boom cycle of talent pool. It leaves only the Ashes. What a terrible time to get a new TV deal for cricket! #AUSvSA— Vijay Arumugam (@vijayarumugam) December 29, 2022
Any loss by an innings is a proper beating. These guys are bringing our country into disrepute.😭😭 #AUSvSA— Tat'uRadebe (@hlubizer) December 29, 2022
Defied fractured finger
Cameron Green defied a fractured finger that will rule him out of the Sydney Test next week with an unbeaten half-century at the MCG #AUSvSA— faizi (@s57007270) December 29, 2022
This is SA’s last three match test series till 2026. Yup you read right. Test cricket is messed up. #AusvSA— Rahul Puri (@rahulpuri) December 29, 2022
Very pleased with Australia’s crushing victory over South Africa in the Boxing Day Test. I think it’s our first home series win against SA since 2006. #AUSvSA— Sorceror43 (@sorceror43) December 29, 2022
