Virtually every susbstantial innings of his in the last two years in test cricket have had a few umpiring decisions or dropped chances going in his favour, the last two series he played in, he didn't get the luxury and his performances are for all to see.
At full strength Australia is better, but I was actually thinking more about what line up Australia will have next series without Lee and Clark. I would still back the South African line up over the Australian one.
India yeah without Steyn they are better, but I don't think they are that far behind. I have to admitt I think Kumble loss will hurt them a fair bit short term until there 4th bowler is established.
I don't really think it Steyn or nothing. I reckon they have a better shot at winning series without their strike bowler then India or Australia, due to their depth.
In their own backyard the South African bowlers are likely to prove a lot more difficult to handle for the Aussie batsmen, and if their performance against them in Australia is anything to go by, i am afraid the worst might be yet to come.
Do you guys really think Nel still has a chance to make a comeback for South Africa, though i too think he might be a better choice than Morne Morkel, but still i don't think the South African selectors think on those lines.
North still has a bit more work to go before he get considered for mine. He been in good form, but it not like he is breaking down the selectors doors like Hodge and Katich were.
If your going to pick a player purely on form it would be Klinger not Dave Hussey or North. I would be more confident Symonds can score runs in SA then Dave Hussey or North.
So Katich to six or Hughes or Jaques. Or maybe Mike Hussey?
He wanted Klinger as his opener...
