    Collingwood always had the scoop/swat over the legside, however, and could play the big acceleration if you needed it. Behardien doesn't look like he's got a boundary shot - generous full-tosses notwithstanding - that you need in this form of the game. Robbie P looks much more likely batsman to connect cleanly with the ball than Berhardien: although to be fair, Robbie P is middling the pants out of everything. Time to have him opening rather than that useless bastard Levi?

    This would be like us picking Laurie Evans...

    Posted that before I saw the replay. Thought it had nicked his thigh pad on the way at first.

    Yeah was just looking at it. The bloke only hit 2 fifties but just never got out, which isn't a bad thing of course, but he still struck at less than 140. Definitely had a better season last start than his overall domestic record would indicate but I still think it's fairly evident that he has no place here.

    Really? Behardien rep is that when he is in the zone, he can hit boundaries at will and can hit the ball a long way.

    If South Africa go out here, he will be one of the few players who will leave with some credit. Held the innings together here and against Pak.

    Only chance for South Africa is if Warner and Watson are out within 4 overs. No chance defending this if both are there after 6 overs.

    He isnít a slogger from ball 1, hence the SR but he had a few innings over the past few years when he just went bat crazy in the last few overs and winning games that were lost.
    Took him a long time to come through. Starred against the Australian Academy that captain Bailey was in and captained 7+ years ago, Behardien scored runs in every game and won the series for South Africa but never pushed on afterwards.

    Urghh, why bring Kallis on. Surely Petersen would be a better option?

    And as I type...

    Pie time. Parnell will probably bowl next and go for 30.

    Need wickets. Should have gone for Robbie P. Back him.
