Malinga is so close. The reason that Malinga did not get picked is due to his lack of endurance. Overall Malinga's test career was a bit of a disappointment for mine, he's close to gaining selection due to a lack of options but I just felt Ratnayake would do a better job for the team.
In the SA XI, Adcock vs. Tayfield was another very difficult decision. I just thought the SA way was to bowl the quicks at every opportunity. Faulkner could bowl more if there was any spin.
