JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - New South Africa captain Dean Elgar says his "frustrated" side are fired-up to perform on their two-match tour of the West Indies after being starved of test cricket for much of the past year.

South Africa have played only four tests in the last 16 months, largely due to travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the same period, rivals England, India and West Indies have contested 12, 10 and 9 tests respectively.
