    SA Touring Squad for WI

    Graeme Smith (WPBoland)
    Nicky Boje (Eagles)
    Jacques Kallis (WPBoland)
    Herschelle Gibbs (WPBoland)
    Ashwell Prince (WPBoland)
    Boeta Dippenaar (Eagles)
    Mark Boucher (Warriors)
    Andrew Hall (Lions)
    Charl Langeveldt (Lions)
    Monde Zondeki (Warriors)
    Makhaya Ntini (Warriors)
    Jacques Rudolph (Titans)
    AB de Villiers (Titans)
    Andre Nel (Titans)
    Shaun Pollock (Dolphins)

    I think its a pretty good squad, although Dale Steyn, Justin Kemp, Zander de Bruyn and Albie Morkel can count themsleves unlucky. Also what are your guys' predictions with regards to the series. If WI doesn't sort out its nonsense SA will win 2-0 or 3-0. If Lara, Sarwan etc. play, I still see SA winning but it will be a much closer series.

    Even though it is Test i rather have him in my side in front of Dippenear or Hall, why pick him for the Zim Test infront of those guys and not pick him even in the sqaud.

    South Africa really ought to win 4-0 - weather permitting - if Windies are without 3 of their 4 best batsmen and 1 of their 2 effective test bowlers.

    I think a full strength Windies would lose narrowly, perhaps 2-1, due to South Africa's clear edge in bowling quality.

    Steyn can't have any complaints, there are about 6 or 7 bowlers who deserved to be picked ahead of him ITFP.
    de Bruyn is unlucky, as he was to be dropped when he was.
    Don't know about Morkel, I can see a few who he should be ahead of personally. Doesn't, yet at least, look much special to me.
    As for Kemp, I don't know - I'd prefer him to get himself established in ODIs before people start picking him for Tests. I'd also like to see him doing something about his bowling, which has become a joke in the last year or so. He used to be a really good bowler, too.

    Yeah, Kemp is nothing more than a part-timer these days.

    And I dont really know why... he was a good bowler when he first came onto the scene. His test record shows us this.

    If he can sort his bowling out, he will be a test fixture.

    why pick him for the Zim Test infront of those guys and not pick him even in the sqaud.
    They didnt pick him for the Zim tests!

    Question is... why has his bowling gone so badly downhill?
    And until someone can answer that, he can't get back where he was.
    If it was obvious, I imagine someone'd have spotted it by now.

    I would have picked Steyn personally, just watching him bowl he looked he had something good about him, he had pace, talent, potential, aggressiveness - he isn't afraid of hurting a batsman, and I thought he bowled not that bad.

    Add to that I think he will get better in time, the only critism is that he over did the bouncer and should have slipped in a yorker or two after a series of bouncers.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    I'd say the criticism is that he's extremely wayward and nowhere near good enough for Test-cricket yet.
    Maybe he will get better in time - hopefully he won't get picked again until he has.
    And hopefully the bowlers who've been around for a while and deserve a chance might get one in the meantime.

    Huge odds he'll score runs against the might of the West Indies though.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Agreed.

    Most test nations have worked him out - why havent the selectors?
