Sydney: South Africa arrived Sunday for a three-Test cricket tour of Australia hoping to maintain their No. 1 ranking by beating the home side for the second consecutive time Down Under.
Pace bowler Dale Steyn says the Proteas are confident coming into the series. South Africa are two places and four points ahead of the Australians in the ICC Test rankings after securing top spot from England with a series win in England earlier this year.
Steyn said, "We enjoyed our tour here last time so hopefully we can repeat that ... and the team is on a high."
The first Test begins in Brisbane on Nov. 9, followed by matches in Adelaide (Nov. 22-26) and Perth (Nov. 30-Dec. 4).
