    The way Styris played in the WC he wouldn't be far off the Aussie ODI team.

    Sinclair's miles away from even Australia A though.

    Good call. If Strauss and Pietersen were playing for South Africa, then they would be an even better side, but not unbeatable.. Anyone else currently playing who was born in South Africa that doesn't represent them?

    Of course not. But it'd make England weaker. Especially since they couldn't pick Pothas or Jones either...

    Ah, I see what you are saying. Certainly South Africa would be a lot stronger if all South African born players stayed in the country and attempted to play for them, even if a few of them didn't get selected for the national side.
