    If you want to be picky with others, then you've got it coming back at you in spades.
    Hmm, how do I get the feeling I've answered this before.
    Selecting is concerned solely with victory. Hence, you pick the players who have been most effective, not neccesarily those who have deserved to be so.
    Anyway, most people refuse to accept that people don't deserve what they've got next to their names in the scorebook.

    Well played yet again, Mr. Kirsten.
    South Africa simply cannot afford to fail to win tomorrow. But unless Adams has another golden day I'd say it's less likely than more.

    The scorebook never lies - but often, it has ways of obscuring the truth
