    Amla for the 20/20 side. WTF is that about? And all of sundry talking about the end of the Proteas era, new blood coming in but the side looks the same as the one that was smashed in India and humbled by England.

    Whatís more they call up Miller, finally a cricketer with a S/R the right side of 150 but apparently he wonít be playing tomorrow.

    Though South Africa will probably waltz this tour - no pressure but it would be great if they royally ****ed up in the limited overs stuff and real change was implemented before the WC.

    I like Albie but his comments regarding pressure and not being able to live with (realistic) expectations should be the death knell for him. No South African supporter is expecting miracles but most of the side fancy themselves big time and love to talk it up, so they should only expect the fans to turn on them. Just a shame they didnít have time to go home before the Windies tour, looks like the South African media and fans are baying for some blood.

    Why did they select Kallis, Gibbs, and JP for the World T20? No captain can do anything with those players in a T20 match.

    Picking Miller is a right thing to do but they're still sticking with Kallis and JP. JP should be dropped in all forms of the game. Kallis shouldn't be in the T20 squad.

    "Watch out for...
    Albie Morkel showed glimpses of his hard-hitting ability when he smacked five sixes in an 18-ball 40 against New Zealand, but he was a frustrated spectator for much of the campaign, waiting in the dug-out for a chance to swing his bat while the top order ate up too many deliveries. If South Africa want to reboot their Twenty20 prospects, they could do worse than shove him up to No. 5."

    Looks like Cricinfo forgot that Albie isnít in the squad or indeed the Caribbean.

    He is a popular player in SA, no doubt about that.. I personally think he is a buffet bowler and a very naive batsman.. Okay he had a good knock against the Kiwis, but lest we forget against England he was made to look like a complete turkey by Yardy of all people.. The more I think about him, the less I rate him.. It annoys me that people are mainly calling for van der Merwe to get the axe, without realising we are carrying far worse passengers..

    First big decision made by the new selection committee has been to ditch Boucher. More changes are expected to follow. Steve Miller Band has visa problems but should arrive sometime this week.

    ďAB (de Villiers) will be starting with the gloves in the limited overs matches,Ē commented Smith. ďThere is a new selection committee and a few new ideas. We only have something like 15 ODIs before we get to India for the World Cup, so we have to make every one of them count.Ē

    Judging from gayle's comments, the matches in Antigua could be last-chance-saloon for some of the WI batsmen....

    So have SA learnt nothing from the T20 World Cup?
