    Yes our tour matches are always under the "Australians" name, been that way for at least 40 years, maybe more, I can't be stuffed checking.

    Seeing the schedule as it is, Rhino needs to be rested for all the LO stuff and the kiwi series.

    And honestly, if Johnson cannot perform in SA he needs to get the flick from our first choice bowling attack. Direct swap for Dougeh obviously

    Agree. No point in him playing any ODI's ever again, and needs to be fit for India, our bowling lineup will have a hard enough time at full strength on our docile pitches vs the Indians, we don't need injuries. Sachin, Laxman, Sehwag could dine out on our attack this summer, no helpful England pitches to help us....and the weakest bowling lineup Sachin would've faced ever in Australia. Johnson out, Dougie in for at least one test to show his fitness, he's a much better bowler -period- anyway.

    I hate to say this but I'm actually happy with CA scheduling for FC matches in our domestic season - There's plenty still to complain about mind you - but with several rounds of FC matches before the Indians arrive it gives some of our fringe bowlers the means to prove themselves. With Clarke now on the selection committee perhaps dougeh will find a way back in sooner than later

    Should be a good series. South Africa will really fancy themselves in Cape Town, good ground for them as its usually slow and pretty flat, so the batsman go heavy and the bowling attack likes those conditions. Wanderers will be the test though, can be sometimes too lively for their batsman, the bowlers get carried away and while they blew away England by an innings last time they played there, you don't want a wicker that quick with Johnson around.

    Like that the limited overs stuff is first, means South Africa wonít be going into the tests cold. From what Kirsten has said, Boucher will start the test series but no indication that Virus will play, so strong likelihood is that Rudolph and Smith will open and Prince will play infront of JP. As for the bowling, AD apparently rates Craig Alexander but given Craig is a strike bowler; he may not be what South Africa is looking for in a third seamer, what with Steyn, Morne and Tahir being the wicket takers. Philander or Ryan McLaren gives the side more balance.

    Good thing about the ODIs and 20/20s coming first is that Lopsy and Parnell will probably bowl themselves completely out of the test reckoning. Donít expect too many faces in the limited overs side, Smith still wants to play ODIs, meaning Rudolph canít play and Kallis is in no rush to stop playing ODIs as well. Likes of Vandiar and Rossouw will probably get a hit out in the 20/20s.

    SA can still become number 1 in the world if they beat us 2-0 and then beat SL 2-0 right?









    kinda conflicted tbh
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    During 2008/09 vs SA, he certainly was something else with that swinging ball.

    Australia in Sri Lanka 2011: Mitchell Johnson 'hasn't lost his mojo' - Michael Clarke | Cricket News | Sri Lanka v Australia | ESPN Cricinfo

    Indicated that Clark is likely to pick him. Copeland will probably miss out providing Harris returns to full fitness.

    mad if they don't stick with copes. flapping bonkers.

    harris copes sprayer in sa.. If he can't get it to happen there, harris copes bolly in australia. siddle is the poor cousin, 4 wickets and a birthday hatty notwithstanding.

    Siddle to only replace Harris this summer.
