    Rory was a complete disgrace at the Gabba but I thought he bowled really well in Adelaide, especially since the pitch was a completely road and he's quite dependant on movement off the pitch. He's never going to be a Test standard bowler but I've definitely seen worse second reserves around.

    English 1st language - Smith, Kallis, Elgar, Amla, McLaren, Steyn

    Afrikaans 1st language - Rudolph, De Villiers, Du Plessis & Morkel

    Its tough to say with the cape coloureds Petersen, Duminy, Philander, Kleinveldt & Robbie P because I would say they speak both but mainly English.

    Fair assessment.

    Nerves definitely got the better of him at the Gabba.

    At certain times he has out-performed Vernon domestically so he can say that if Vern can do it so can I.

    I think a positive Vern and Rory have had is that they have bowled a lot on one of the flatest pitches in the country at the out ground in Paarl for the Cobras so they know how to do the hard work for the team.

    Those who came from PE are most likely English first language. Robbie P is definitely given that he went to Alexander Road High.

    Agree with that. Thats why I said they are mainly English. Robbie P's christian name and middle name are English but then again Wayne Dillon Parnell also sounds English but he actually was Afrikaans and got a bursary to Grey High and lived with his English teacher who taught him English. Ashwell Prince, Alviro Petersen, Wayne Parnell, Robin Peterson and Garnett Kruger all grew up in the same suburb of Gelvondale in Port Elizabeth.

    I would say Vernon and Rory are mainly English speaking but I suspect people in JP's family spoke afrikaans though but he speaks English clearly and went to the same school as Rory in Plumstead.

    Don't want to sound like a **** here, but Vernon's English seems pretty poor if that's his first language. I always assumed he was a primarily Afrikaans guy for that reason alone. Maybe he's just a nervous public speaker.

    Think it is the nerves and hence he stutters. Obviously !

    He speaks worse than Morne and I'm surprised how bad he is in front of the cameras given that he receives training for that kind of stuff and he's been in FC cricket for a while.

    I'm going to assume he has a speech impediment.

    From the last u19 WC... 3 franchise debuts in Quinton De Kock, Prenelan Subrayen and Lizaad Williams so far this season. With Chad Bowes, Calvin Savage, Solo Nqweni and Corne Dry travelling as part of a squad. Swing bowler,Travis Muller, who missed out on slection is doing well for WP amateur side though.

    The next future stars of South African cricket are in action. First up its the famous Khaya Majola Cricket Week (Formerly the Nuffield Week) from 16-21 DEC that has produced so many of the stars that have played for South Africa pre and post isolation. So many famous stories from the famous partnership between Barry Richards and Lee Irvine to Herschelle Gibbs and Jacques Kallis batting together. The SA schools side to be named and to be edged in South African cricketing history. Of the current test squad out in Australia only Alviro Petersen and Imran Tahir didn't compete in this annual event.

    Following the Coke Week is the Franchise Cubs week where the SA u19 squad will be named at the beginning of January. 2 Tests and 5 ODI's against the English.

    Names to look out for by Province for the Khaya Majola Week -

    Western Province - David Bedingham 18 (c), Dayyaan Galiem 15 , Clyde Fortuin 17
    Boland - Jan Frylinck 18 (c)
    Eastern Province - Lloyd Brown 17 (c), Brad Bopp 17 , Anrich Nortje 19
    KZN Coastal - Senuran Muthusamy 18 (c), Sibonela Makhanya 16, Andile Phelukwayo 16, Kyle Simmonds 18 , Craig Kirsten 18
    KZN Inland - Greg Oldfield 17, Daryn Dupavillon 18
    Free State - Hanco Olivier 17, Nico Loubser 16
    Griquas - Diego Rosier 18 (c)
    Gauteng - Yaseen Valli 17, Bradley Dial 17, Shaylen Pillay 18 (c)
    Northerns - Leus Du Plooy 17
    Easterns - Jurie Snyman 17, Vincent Moore 18 (c)

    That is definitely the case and the fact he isn't the most/best educated coming from Belville in the Northern suburbs of Cape Town and not attending the best of schools.

    I hope to see Yaseen Valli and Yaseen Vallie on the same pitch some day just to mess with people.

    I like the stocks of long tall fast bowlers come through the ranks with Corne Dry and Calvin Savage.

    That would be something. Good to see Vallie getting time in the middle in the limited overs stuff for the Cobras as well now. No more overseas signing in Owais Shah to block him and Van Zyl playing in the LO stuff ! Had a good knock at Newlands the other night got 52 and Van Zyl got 86. Quality partnership. There was talk other franchises wanted to signe Vallie in the off season but the Cobras convinced him to stay.

    The 17 year old Valli at KES is having a quality schoolboy season and club season for Old Edwardians. Will be a name to keep an eye on as quality openers come through less frequently.

    I think the depth of our fast bowling will only grow in the next couple of years with the u19 lads joining the franchise scene to join the likes of Morris, Viljoen and De Lange etc

    No probs mate.

    Definitely seems a big lad from the pictures. I haven't seen him in action yet but the talk is that he is something special.

    I see that Thomas Kaber played in a recent Northerns game after 3 years of little or no news.
