    A few hundred miles??

    You should have first looked at a map or done a google search before framing your question, since you are in error.

    ------

    Closest distance from Antarctica....

    Australia - 1550 miles

    South Africa - 2500 miles

    Hence, your question is null and void, having no substance to it.

    the two have been super run chases. India gained after chasing 387 to win. Virender Sehwag's innings became into the turning element in that journey. And Tendulkar performed a masterful knock and Yuvraj performed the suited help place. South Africa became into chasing 414. there is not any plenty distinction between the two aims, and South Africa had sufficient time to chase it down. They mandatory a comfortable start up. even nevertheless they lost Neil McKenzie, Smith & Amla prepare a stable partnerships and AB de Villers alongside with Kallis & then with Duminy lead the team to victory. India had the homestead benefit; South Africa became into taking part in in rival's territory, the place their checklist became into dismal, and that they have got been taking part in the international Champions (as in keeping with ICC attempt rankings). India, even in the absence of Ganguly & unfavorable run of Dravid, has a suited center order. i'm going to might desire to contemplate South Africa's chase somewhat (as low as a speck) greater advantageous than India's.
