A video of Australia coach and selector Mickey Arthur talking about his side's upcoming Test series against the No 1 ranked South Africa, which begins on November 9.


Australia will take on South Africa in three Test matches, as the opening game of the series will be played at the Gabba in Brisbane.


The second Test will be played at the Adelaide Oval from November 22-26, while the third and final Test will be at the WACA ground in Perth from November 30 – December 4, 2012.


Despite a temptation to play a four-man pace attack on what is expected to be a bouncy Gabba wicket, South Africa have said they are planning to play Tahir, who has played 10 Tests for the Proteas, AFP reported.


All of Australia's players took part in Tuesday's first training session at the Gabba, including Rob Quiney, who is set make his Test debut as a replacement for injured all-rounder Shane Watson.
