    Feel sick for the guy, what a rotten way to do it. What is it with Brisbane and severe injuries to tourists?

    I think Tsolekile has quite a bit invested in him because he's a black African, whereas the rest of the non-whites in the test set up are either of sub-continental extraction or are "Cape Coloureds".

    Since Ntini surrendered to Anno Domini and Tsotsobe didn't quite make the grade in the longest format the majority population hasn't been represented, which one suspects is something the board would like to rectify.

    Dude represented SA in Hockey, must be one of those talented guys who's good at every sport they play. ABdV is also another one.

    From what I've seen Tsolekile is actually a handy player to have. He's a brilliant pure keeper and an old fashioned unorthodox batsman. He's like the SA Jack Russell.

    Thing is though, they have such a huge quantity of immensely talented, young, (and white) keeper batsmen in the fc ranks that it looks fairly dodgy.

    "Reality is that in three of his last four hundreds, Amla has been dropped. Australia were the first guilty party when Michael Hussey put him down in Cape Town last year off the final ball of the day. Amla had a rare rush of blood to the head and drove in the air but got lucky and went on to usher South Africa to victory with Graeme Smith the next day.

    On his way to his triple-century, he offered a chance when he was on 40 when an edge went the way of Andrew Strauss in the slips. At Lord's two matches later, Amla gloved a short ball down the leg side when he was on 2 and Matt Prior could not hold on. "

    And now siddle. What luck Amla is having and he is making them pay !!

    He may need someone else as cover though.

    Been waiting to see Amla bowl more in tests. Rory will presumably be dropped for the next test unless he does extremely well here as Fafís bowling is more part-time than JP. Rudolph presumably canít bowl due to a dodgy back but Virus can bowl some offies, he bowls filthy medium pace too.
    Doubt Thami will play but if he does, he is only getting a gig over Faf who went three years without scoring a hundred in FC cricket and has a record comparable to that of Quiney, average and unspectacular. Also AB without the gloves averages about 15 more with the bat, doesn't he?

    Well the old board allowed Thami to quit cricket and work in an office and the new board from all reports is very business centric and is concerned more with getting the boards finance in order than political point scoring. Lopsy test cricket has pretty much been finished without much or any blowback.

    And both Rory Kleinveldt's Dad and Uncle were involved with the SACB/played non-white cricket with guys like Vincent Barnes, South Africa's former bowling coach and they are a well liked family. Safe to say Rory has got more clout than Thami.
