Proteas on holiday in Australia

The Proteas are currently out on holiday in Australia and have shared some of their moments. Check them out.

Brisbane - South Africa's cricket team the Proteas are doing their best to play tourists during a nine-day break between the first two Tests of their Australian tour.

Sport24 reports that Middle-order batsman Jacques Rudolph went to Cairns in north Queensland for deep sea fishing on the Great Barrier Reef. Rudolph appeared in a photograph in the Sydney Morning Herald with a large reef fish he caught on Wednesday, a day after the first Test ended in a draw at the Gabba in Brisbane.


Jacques Kallis travelled from the Gabba to the Sunshine Coast for four days of golf. Fast bowlers Vernon Philander and Rory Kleinveldt also hit a Brisbane golf course on Wednesday, while captain Graeme Smith, AB de Villiers, Dale Steyn and Faf du Plessis went to the beaches north of Brisbane.

Opening batsman Alviro Petersen is the only team member to travel straight to Adelaide, site of the second Test beginning November 22, where he is visiting friends. Head coach Gary Kirsten returned to South Africa to see his family.

Team manager Mohammed Moosajee said the break helps South Africa, the No 1 Test nation, stay relaxed.
