    Better 2 tests than no tests!

    Prefer no tests to be honest. South Africa is on a hiding for nothing.

    Yeah a series of this magnitude deserve 3 test matches, even 4.
    I am glad Ashwell Prince was able to save his place..although I hope better sense prevails and he is given his place in the middle order.

    India will win if they produce dustbowls. Later in the year you would expect SA to produce greentops at home.

    Yup. Hopefully that's the way it'll play out.

    Well I hope they produce Dustbowls. Because even if they do not prepare dust bowls and end up winning, the pitches will be classified as Dust Bowls because of the result.

    Isn't De Villiers an opener?

    Virus is in the squad and he opens domestically. As has Botha to pretty good success. Elgar, Puttick even Rossouw and Vandiar can open albeit only so far in limited overs cricket but they have the ability to bat anywhere. So there are opitions, its just that Procter, Smith and Fletcher are all big on Prince and they don't want him to bat in the middle order anymore.

    Yes but he averages over 50 where he is, so he isn't going to move.

    Is it that they don't want him in the middle or that they want him in the team but he can't fit in the middle?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I think it's because they don't know where else to put Prince is the reason why he's opening.
