    Just over from the Victor Richardson gates iirc.

    Urghh, why don't SA pick Tsolekeli? I actually think if they really wanted to play du Plessis they could have played the keeper at 8 and have du Plessis as the front line spinner. Although you could argue that would be a poor move at Adelaide.

    Or they could have dropped Rudolph, and stuck Faf in at six, and still played Tahir.

    Sooner or later they are going to have to play Tsolekile. What is the point on having him on a Central Contract if they don't?

    I wonder what he prefers, touring with the national side and sitting on his backside or at least being with the Lions and playing every game?

    because they're so racist they'll pick a player in the squad based on the colour of his skin but refuse to pick him in the test team based on the colour of his skin. CSA are doing some next level stuff
    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

    I'm hoping he will at least get a gig against New Zealand. de Villiers keeping long term is not something I want to see.

    Amateurs compared to CA, tbh. Remember when they refused to pick Reiffel in the ODI side because he wasn't good enough, on ya way to Aus A son. He takes enough poles that he's going to be a threat to the Aus ODI side so they pick him as a pat on the back/promotion and promptly make him 12th.

    Discrimination against Vics is like racism but funny.

    Picking Tsolekile was dumb anyway, the dude is already 32.

    They should have looked at somebody like Vilas or Kuhn, both good keepers and can probably make their franchise sides as batsmen.

    Well tbh, I don't know much about South African domestic cricket and who the best current contenders are, but I just don't want to see AB with the gloves after the Australia tour, even if it means brining Quinton in early.

    It's an arm ball, just bowled with the middle finger flick.

    I actually spent 30-40 mins in the nets yesterday trying to bowl it. Difficult.
