    **Official** South Africa in England 2012

    So the Test squad to tour England is unchanged.

    Good team overall I think, gonna be a cracker of a series.

    Squad: Graeme Smith (capt), Hashim Amla, Mark Boucher, Marchant de Lange, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, Jacques Kallis, Morne Morkel, Alviro Petersen, Robin Peterson, Vernon Philander, Jacques Rudolph, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

    He's been in decent nick for his country side, Lancashire.

    In FC cricket this season he's scored more than 400 runs at nearly 60.

    Quite, and it's in Lancashire that he's needed, as our batting without him is too horrible a prospect to contemplate!

    So there are 4 bats that have good/great records against England and 3 that our bowlers would be licking their lips at facing. Glad Prince isn't there to be honest.

    Why? Swann would have a field day against a left handed bat that can't play spin at all.

    Well i'd rather he played against Duminy or Rudolph. Prince has done well against us in the past, the other 2 haven't.

    I'm also looking forward to this, now we will see if England really are unbeatable at home, judging from the series we just played against England i think they'll need to step up a few levels, though the wins on paper look impressive i don't think SA will fail to take advantage of the good of situations we let slip away.

    The series where WI had England 57/4 chasing 192 on the last day of the first test, i think Steyn and co would take advantage of situations like that, and if SA score over 420 and England are 215/5 like what happened in the third test then that would really put the cat amoungst the pigoens aswell .

    Well they had a better situation than that last time we played them, at Centurion (we were 221-7 after they got 418) and they let Swann get 85, Anderson get 29 and failed to win the test.

    And we were basically 3 down at Lords since one of the wickets was our usual number 11.

    Yes but back then they didn't have Philander or Tahir!! , i can't see the current bowling unit letting England off the hook now, it also doesn't bode well when only Strauss was able to get a ton against our attack which isn't as good as SA's.

    LOL lets be right about this SA didn't look to flash against NZ, they got knocked over cheaply for a couple of low scores in the first two test. If NZ can do that England must be fancying their chances and England wont be letting them off the hook like the NZ'ers did.

    Yeah and Tahir has ripped it up since his test debut hasn't he.
