Australia take it easy

6:50 am on 14 March 2009

The Australian cricketers are taking it easy in Cape Town this week while their South African rivals discuss who wants to captain the home side.

Ricky Ponting's side lead the three-Test series 2-0 and have been given a four-day break before resuming training on Monday for the third Test in Cape Town on March the 19th.

The mood is a little different in the South African camp, where they have had three captains already this week.

Skipper Graeme Smith is out injured for the final Test and regular vice-captain Ashwell Prince was named stand-in captain before selectors then opted for Jacques Kallis.
