    Have the provincial u19 teams for 2013 been named yet?
    @CowsCorner - 202 followers and counting!

    Disclaimer: I am a biased South African. Anything I say is likely to have something in it that ultimately favours the Proteas.

    Definitely not. Schoolboy season has only just begun again.

    and the last cycle hasn't finshed even yet with the England u19 tour to SAF.

    First test starts tomorrow at Newlands.

    Definitely not live.

    Possibly some footage later on @SchoolSportsnow or ECB or CSA website but can't be sure.


    So following that twitter account and cricinfo.


    Good start. Williams skiddy at 135-140kmph and Kirsten 6ft4 bounce bowler. Totally different ends to the spectrum.

    Think with Thakor injured. Finch who is out and the two currently at the crease are the best batsmen.

    No worries, will try and catch the highlights then. Good start from our guys.

    Good stuff SeamUp. Good to know as I want to got to the regional trials and because my school is insignificant in sporting terms we don't get the general invitation. So I'll probably go individually.

    What sort of speed do most smaller-region provincial u19 pace bowlers bowl at? I mean places like Boland, Border, North-West etc.

    Yeah decent start but let them get a way a little. Maybe forced on us as Kirsten has gone to hospital. So we've had Pillay bowl more overs than wanted and bought spin on a touch earlier.

    Difficult to say really as it will vary from school to school all based on a talent going to which ever school. Wouldn't be the same year on year.

    I would say don't worry about the pace too much. Just bowl what you bowl at the trials. Let it come naturally whether its 120 or 130kmph plus.

    What did the SA people think of de Kock's entry onto the international stage? He seems to have a lot of talent, was rarely troubled by the bowlers but seems to get himself out after a decent start. Has a lot of shots and his keeping improved as they games went on.

    I would say quite excited but know he has to work on a few things in his game.

    We can see he can play all around the dial but getting out after a start was the story of his One-day campaign for the Lions besides a good hundred v the Titans and the same happened here. But that back-foot punch on about off stump that was all wrist was great to watch. Turning a good ball into a bounday. Probably needs to realise when 1's are on offer instead of saying before the ball is bowled he must go attitude. Probably the talented kid on the block attitude.

    More excited about his keeping as we all knew he had the batting talent. Though he was superb in the U19 WC behind the stumps to Prenelan Subrayen and has looked really good so far vs the Kiwis as well.

    Yes, Kirsten seems impressed and is making noises about the keeping position being uncertain etc. He may be elevated to a more permanent role sooner than expected. If he understood that he didn't have to score off every ball he probably would make big scores most innings. With him as keeper, there would be no need to play someone like Elgar, there could be six specialists plus the bowler and he would be good enough to be an extra specialist batsman who is an all-rounder of sorts.

    Honestly don't think de Kock should be promoted yet. Needs a few more big innings under his belt or else he may become an ashraful-like chap.

    Also thanks Seam-Up, I'm probably around 120 but get swing both ways so we'll see how it goes.

    Think that may happen down the line. Will get extra difficult when Duminy is fit again though. But I reckon the selectors want more runs from with the red ball so they are happy building his experience in 1-day cricket for now.

    Dean is getting a bit of exposure so he doesn't come into the openers spot with no prior test experience so can see him staying in the team for the next 3 tests.
