    Ahmed Shahzad is all class probably as good as some of the Indian batting talents in the bowling department Adil Raza seems like an Asif clone. Dissapointed with Umer Akmal his technique looked poor I would call him another Afridi.

    SA win by 98 runs. Should be a good final tomorrow, looking forward to it.

    Looking for big things from Sangwan tomorrow. He's been fairly quiet after a gun start to the World Cup. SA will have their hands full with the Indian batsmen but Sangwan, Argal and Kaul need to at the very least restrict the quality SA lineup before the spinners take over.

    No one from the SA batting line-up has really dominated.

    If they bat first, I dont think they make 200

    South Africa was exceptional this morning and you would be hard pressed to find a better fielding unit around. Guys like Engelbrecht are absolute insane fielders and he seems to be in the side purely for that reason.

    Should be a good game tomorrow, India’s batting has been immense so wickets upfront will be the key.

    I've had a good look at both India and South Africa over their past few games.

    Personally believe India have a more balanced side.....South Africa's bowling looks a bit one dimensional to me...Parnell is the only bowler they have that really impresses me.


    However, it is a one off game and if India are not at the top of their game....South Africa can surprise.
    If India do play well though, I expect them to win...

    In regard to Parnell he is a 'goodish' bowler but not exceptionally quick and for me Arnold has the more potential, considering he has all the attributes to be a real firebrand, Parnell doesn’t.

    Another guy who also should go for is Yaseen Vallie, who hasn't had the best of tournaments but Peter Kirsten has said he is one of the best young cricketers he has ever seen and he is a fantastic hitter of the ball as well.
    Arnold has pace but little else. Parnell looks like a pretty good prospect to me...swings the ball at a lively pace, has good control and gets decent lift.

    Good start for SA, Arnold been looking good. Early wickets exactly what they needed, now if they can just get Srivastava.. Not too sure why they chose to bowl though.

    Need a good partnership here. South Africa have done very well to keep India to a low RR and take 2 wickets. Virat Kohli playing with a nice straight bat though and hopefully, we will see a good inning from him today.

    Kohli goes just after hitting a huge six! Engelbrecht takes another great catch, just what SA needed.

    Game has just started again, revised target for SA is 116 from 25 overs, after bowling out India for 159. This will be a difficult chase!
