Ok that was awesome. Rice's yorkers at the end were superb. First time I've seen an extended video of his bowling.
Hughes and Pienar were loads of fun to watch as well.
The shot at about 2:55 is so absurd that it's one of those rare individual shots I still remember absolutely perfectly years later.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
You're talking about that cover drive off Malinga aren't you?
*checks video *
The flicked six the previous ball pretty memorable too.
We got the Star commentary for this one. Lol @ the C9 commentary team cracking up after every ball of that Malinga over.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Captained by none other than J R Reid.
So much better than that comparison video whoever it was did all those years ago
Always trying to find as much rebel tour footage. But going into the squads selected for England/Australia before isolation the following would have been the seam attack.
Vince van der Bijl
Peter Pollock retired from FC in 1972 at the age of 31 but would have carried on for longer if there was international cricket I am sure. Whilst Pat Trimborn was very much the work-horse for Pollock/Procter and retired in 1976 at 36 years of age. Moving forward what else did South Africa add to challenge the Windies in fast-bowling in 70's & 80s to add to the known Pollock and Procter.
Clive Rice : born 1949. FC debut 1969. Retired in 1994 @ 45
Vince van der Bijl : born 1948. FC debut 1967. Retired 1983 @ 35
Rupert 'Spook' Hanley : born 1952 . FC debut 1970. Retired 1987 @ 35
Kenny Watson : born 1955 . FC debut 1974 . Retired 1992 @ 37
Garth Le Roux : Born 1955. FC debut 1975. Retired 1989 @ 34
Stephen Jefferies : Born 1959. FC debut 1978. Retired 1994 @ 35
Hugh Page : born 1962 . FC debut 1981. Retired 1996 @ 34
Corrie van Zyl : born 1961 . FC debut 1981. Retired 1995 @ 34
Some players over-lapped who started FC careers in the mid-to-late 80's
Obviously Allan Donald (FC debut 1985) , Brian McMillan (FC debut 1984) were involved in the Rebel Series at the back end.
First test back v Windies was : Donald, Tertius Bosch (FC debut 1986), Meyrick Pringle (FC debut 1985), Richard Snell (FC debut 1987)
But the best moving forward was : Donald, Fanie de Villiers (FC debut 1985) , Brett Schultz (FC debut 1989), Craig Matthews (FC debut 1986), McMillan probably

Rice, Le Roux, Jefferies, Page, van Zyl all in here. Will try to look for individual footage for them but this is good enough for now. Couldn't find the youtube video unfortunately.
Third test brilliant at the Wanderers. Le Roux/Rice hattricks and the pace of Van Zyl/Le Roux. Rackerman picking up 12 and Rixon equalling SA FC record for dismissals. Wanderers always been quality for FC/test cricket.
