    *Official* South Africa v Sri Lanka Tests & ODI's

    Shaun Pollock - Captain, Mark Boucher - Vice-captain, Steve Elworthy, Herschelle Gibbs, Andrew Hall, Mornantau Hayward, Claude Henderson, Jacques Kallis, Gary Kirsten, Neil McKenzie, Makhaya Ntini, Ashwell Prince, Graeme Smith.

    So Neil McKenzie is back...but Martin Van Jaarsvelt is dropped without any explanation...or anyone noticing really...

    It's good to see Neil McKenzie back, he looked a very promising player and also he is in fine form, in his last game he hit 160ish

    From what I saw, I can't understand why van Jaarsveld has been dropped rather than Prince - I mean Ashwell struggled to score heavily against Bangladesh...

    Yeh a bit disappointing that, Van Jaarsveld batted down the order and never really got a chance to shine, now he has been dropped. He is a better batsman than Prince aswell

    But is he coloured?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Ashwell Prince is definately a coloured player. As far as im aware Van Jaarsveld is not.

    Someone told me that SA had abolished Quotas in their Test Squad...knew it wouldn't last:rolleyes:What did Van Jaarsfelt do wrong? 43 not out on his debut then ditched?

    I'm guiessing Prince gains in that he has 3 years advantage, and also he's a leftie.

    Whatever team they put on the field, SA will start as firm favourites. SL are enjoying some great one day form, but test cricket is a different ball game altogether.

    I agree with anilverma, Sri Lanka will find it
    pretty tough especially in the absence of De Silva
    to cope on SA wickets. SL bowling also looks
    quite amturish.

    If I was Martin van Jaarsveld, I'd be feeling very hard done by...

    SA should win the series with some to spare, but I think that it will be the closest Test Series we've had since England-India. (OK, that's not much of an achievement!)

    Unfortunately, there is some kind of bias in the selections of most teams: regional bias, racial bias, nepotism....you name it.

    According to Cricinfo Van Jaarsveld is playing, along with Steve Elworthy (great future he's got!)

    SL in deep trouble at 150/7 with all their big guns gone...
    Flames are welcome, but beware of the *Backdraft *
