    Dammit I was so going to start this.

    Anyway, should be interesting as post-readmission series between these countries almost always have been.

    Will be particularly interested to see who I'll be supporting.

    How am I to know? Probably during the First Test, but maybe later.

    Doubt that strongly. As Richard said, should be an intriguing series. I think its actually too close to call, but wearing my patriotic goggles for a bit, I say SA, 2-1.

    Good to see Andre Nel back. I honestly thought he was a certainty to join the ICL after he was snubbed for the tour of India.

    And one T20 match now? This is a shock.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Logic suggests a SA win. Steyn will be far too good for Engalnd's fragile batting, and the rest of SA's attack will be good enough to clear up the rest. Kallis is by far the best batsman on view, and England's attack just doesn't look up to it (even before this morning's debacle). That being said, SA do have a history of failing to win series over here that they should have cantered, so maybe England will get lucky again. Plus England's attack could conceivably be much stronger if Flintoff is fit.

    Why would you support SA against your own country?

    Because I have a history of supporting SA TBH. Never been quite sure why, just like 'em. I wondered several times in the 2004/05 series which side I was supporting, and even now I'm still not really sure (hence probably never will be).

    Possibly have a similar situation here.

    Just a thought on the SA squad. The fact that the squad almost picks itself, and there aren't any controversies surrounding it, is probably a sign that SA cricket (at international level at least) is rather healthy.

    And of the six non-whites in the squad, with the exception of Robin Peterson (why the f*** do the selectors persist with him?), they are all there on merit, in my opinion.
