You are white, I am black
When you are warm, you are red, I black
When you are cold, you are blue, I black,
When you are sick, you are green, I black
When you are blushed, you are pink, I black
Yet you call me "colored"?

In the bad old days when West Indian cricketers visited I seem to recall Mr Vorster or whoever it was that was in charge would grant them the status of honorary whites - is this situation completely different or almost the same?
When it comes to spinners, we seem to specialise in mediocre off-spinners or left armers who dart it in (although I like Paul Harris, and Claude Henderson should have played many more games for SA than he did).
Tahir - 5 wickets.
Harris - 0 wickets
This is in their domestic game.
Note, Tahir has all 5 wickets to have fallen.
I don't think very many people would dispute that under most circumstances Imran Tahir > Harris comfortably.

And Tahir is no less South African than Harris really, so there's not really an excuse to pick Harris, presuming Tahir wants to play for SA. With Tahir, SA are probably the best team in the world on a player-by-player basis.
