    Well see i guess. Cause surely at lets say age 38, his bowling would have lost some penetration.

    Think he and Bouch will bow out after the 2011 World Cup. Both players have said they achieved all they can in test cricket and the only thing left for them is ICC success.

    Contrary to what many people say, also think Kallis enjoys bowling . He is 33 and could have given it up years ago but he still seems genuinely 'excited' when he takes wicket and it does take a lot of pressure of his batting, as he feels he has already contributed when he bowls well.

    The only problem with that is it can create an environment where players feel they are untouchable. One of the biggest criticism of the South African team is that they are too relaxed at times, regard selection as a given and there is an unhealthy clique which was fostered by allowing sameness to continue.

    Guys like Loots Bosman, Garnett Kruger and Gulam Bodi have been critical, stating that they were not warmly welcomed as they were replacing cricketers from the 'clique'.

    You only have to see when South African players are dropped, the **** storm which that creates even when the decisions are correct. An example would be Jacques Kallis not being selected for the 2007 20/20 WC. A logical decision based on the fact that Kallis wasn't experienced in the format and didn't then have a specific but that episode nearly led to Kallis retiring from international cricket.

Think he has a rookie contract with the Titans, so it will be interesting how he develops as they already have a fine wicket-keeper in the form of Heino Kuhn. Mangaliso Mosehle was also named RSA U19 cricketer of the year.

    Based on cricinfo, David Miller is keeper for the Dolphins. I'm not sure if that's correct.

    Guys like Loots Bosman, Garnett Kruger and Gulam Bodi have been critical, stating that they were not warmly welcomed as they were replacing cricketers from the 'clique'.
    But let's be fair, their international performances weren't that great. Sounds a lot like sour grapes.

    That can't be true.

    Graeme Smith effectively said it was sour grapes on Kruger's part and if he wasn't going over six runs an over he would have been given the time of the day.

    Anyhow, Graeme Smith is out of tomorrow's warm-up game with the Lions and the second game. And Wayne Parnell is also likely to miss out, his down with flu.

    Be nice if de Wet and Alexander are available to the Lions. That popgun attack which played the Dolphins wouldn't scare anybody.

    Game was today (forgot there was a bank holiday, keep thinking it is a Wednesday...) and it was against a Jacques Kallis XI as the Lions were playing the Dolphins and not everyone was available (9 contracted Lions players featured).

    Captain Botha's men won the game comfortably by four wickets with three overs to spare. Mark Boucher impressed with the bat, scoring 96 off 91 balls whilst JP also chipped in with a half century. As for the opposition, Virus impressed with a 53, de Wet according to SuperSport was lively whereas diminutive RSA U19 cricketer, Temba Bavuma impressed Proteas coach, Mickey Arthur.

    South Africa took the second game with overs to spare. Hope Amla gets the nod over Gibbs.

    Looks like the fast bowlers got hammered. The pitch must have been a road.

    Apparently very slow and low. Taking pace off the ball was the key. Kallis just bowled cutters whilst the spinners proved their worth.

    Interesting that Lonwabo Tsotsobe didn't feature in both games. South Africa should really have arranged some ODI games with Zimbabwe and a fellow Champions Trophy side (Pakistan). As he and few of the other guys need a real workout. Been a relatively long break and Steyn is the type of bowler who gets better, the more he bowls.

    Sri Lanka, India, New Zealand, Australia and England will all be coming into the tournament on the back of ODI cricket.

    Coach, Mickey Arthur and the players rejected any competitive cricket in the month of August. Zimbabwe was going to host them and India.

    Kallis is looking a little trimmer these days.

    Yeah, looking good.

    Apparently, Bouch and Smith have also lost a fair bit of weight.

    Saw your reply about the step up from ODI and FC to test cricket TT boy. You're dead right and if it was up to me personally I would want Parnell to get stronger and play a season or 2 in domestic 4-day cricket before test call-up. Hence Morne and McLaren must fight over the number 8 spot.

    Proteas looking decent in warm-up games. I'm a big fan of Amla but Gibbs is a match winner for us and if he has the right mind set (which he has at the minute) he has to play ahead of Amla.

    I'm not happy woth the Peterson and Ntini selections for champs trophy. heres no doubt Langeveldt will come in for Ntini when fit.

    I still believe players like Elgar and Vandiar must jump Peterson for WC selection especially with being able to bowl very decent spin and be top batsmen.

    Then there is also Morne and McLaren who are out the 15-man squad.

    Its good to see the depth.

    Eagles have announced squad for champs league.

    The Diamond Eagles confirmed their team that will compete in the Airtel Champions League in India. The coach Sarel Cilliers surprisingly decided to name only one acknowledge spin bowler in his squad, Thandi Tshabalala. Tshabalala is one of the best bowlers in the short history of domestic Twenty/20-cricket in South Africa. Dean Elgar can also be used as a slow bowler in India.

    Cilliers also included seamer CJ de Villiers. The seamer will start bowling in the nets again on 14 September after suffering a injury. Charl Pietersen and Con de Lange is on standby if De Villiers won't be ready to make the trip to India.

    The team:

    Boeta Dippenaar (captain), Morne van Wyk, Dean Elgar, Rilee Rossouw, Reeza Hendricks, Ryan McLaren, Alan Kruger, Dillon du Preez, Victor Mpitsang, Jandre Coetzee, Thandi Tshabalala, CJ de Villiers, Shadley van Schalkwyk.

    I'm sure they are missing 2 players there though??? Probably Bailey and AMcL or because its a short tournament it is only 13 players.


    The players to miss out: Ryan Bailey, Adrain McLaren,Con De Lange, Charl Pietersen, Wendell Bossenger,Obus Pienaar

    Warmup game: Free State vs Griquas

    Griqualand West declared their first innings on 431/6 after facing 82,5 overs on the first day of their three day trial match against Free State at the cricket field of the Central University of Tecnology in Bloemfontein. Free State won the toss and elected to send Griquas in to bat. Three batsmen of Griquas Alan Kruger (140, 149b), Wendell Bossenger (110,138b) and Reeza Hendricks (100, 121b) weighed in with centuries on a flat track.

    Hendricks shared a 133 run opening partnership with youngster Gihan Cloete over the first wicket. Cloete scoring 24 runs from 81 balls before spinner Thandi Tshabalala rearranged his stumps. Hendricks struck 17 fours and a six in his innings before he was caught by Con de Lange off the bowling of Dillon du Preez. Kruger also struck 17 fours and hitting six sixes in his innings. Bossenger was caught by Ryan Bailey off his own bowling.

    Obus Pienaar (2/53) and Tshabalala (2/78) was the home team's best bowlers. The Free State will continue their first innings today at 48/0 with Dean Elgar (35*) and Divan Wyk (13*) in the middle.
