The record of South Africa in the last five years have revealed that they can bounce back from early setbacks in Test series, according to a South African website.
South Africa lost the first of three Tests against Australia in Centurion and is playing in the second Test in Port Elizabeth searching for answers after Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson destroyed them with match figures of 12/127.
However, Sport24 reports that the hosts have played 14 Test series since their last series defeat, according to Die Burger`s website, which also mentioned that they won eight of the series and drew six, while also winning six of the last seven series.
The last time the South Africans lost a series was at home against Australia five years ago which was also the last time Graeme Smith`s men lost two Tests in a row.
Since then, South Africa often performed poorly early in series, before mounting strong fightbacks, the report added.
