Nagpur: Battered and bruised on spinning tracks, the South African cricket team on Saturday decided to take a day off and visit the wildlife santucary at Pench.
To take their minds off from the game and to help them relax for some time, former South African captain Shaun Pollock, who is here as a TV commentator, organised a trip at the Pench Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh, which is about 80 km of drive from the main Nagpur city.
The South African players enjoyed the 'Tiger Safari' with pacers Kylie Abbott and Dale Steyn tweeting the pictures.
"Great morning out at the Pench Tiger Reserve thanks for organising @7polly7," tweeted Abbott thanking Pollock for taking initiative for arranging the trip.

Steyn put up picture of Tiger spotted from a distance on his instagram account.
"Awesome Tiger safari this morning. Dead eye Dale spotted Mr Tiger hiding in the bush, he kindly...." tweeted Steyn.
