No I am not whinning about losing. I realised now after reading the comments on post match report from news24 that I can see where SA cricket is heading from a fan perspective. There is much and growing frustration at a team that buckle against lowly opposition and an aging team that is chosing money over what is best for the country. Oh and then there is that thing called quotas.
Our team threw the game away today and nothing less than that. England were brilliant with bat and ball and fielding but were were miserable with the bat by throwing away our top order wickets.
Like so many I would like to know why is Smith playing that shot? (still)
Why was he not bringing fielders in and being agressive with a low score to defend? Why do we have such a talent pool and yet the blokes play as if they have garunteed place in the team until 2018? Is that because: "boucher can do it so, so can I?" Why do we have so many fast bowlers that love to bowl the same length? Gone are the days of agressive Donald. Morkell is a pansy(both of them). Smith said post match that they were 30 short. So where was Gibbs? He is worth 30 in the field alone. Blah blah tickets are cheap blah but very expensive to watch a joke er I mean choke. And a fortune to watch a team that is not the best and is not based on merit.
Out with boucher and Morkell(albie)
In with Van Wyk/Khun
Team should be something along the line of..
Botha(as captain with 100% win record vs Aus in Aus)
Morkell(He never deserved to be dropped from ODI squad).
Yes the stands will be very empty and so will the fat cat CSA pockets who are weak and let players dictate to them. Did AB prove yet that he is the worlds best no 3?
