    I can only imagine the blueprint McCullum was talking about was to see if they can get to 19/1 after 10 overs again on what looks to be a cracking wicket ...

    Very very strange decision to bat first.

    When he's on song but tends to be a bit inconsistent. One of his problems is lack of pace so on the flat tracks he has to be accurate or he can travel.

    Was dire at Essex, tbh. Word is he had refuelling and penis issues too.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    That's some seriously ordinary batting lineup South Africa have today. Faf is the captain, averages less than 30 in ODIs, Smith is the old head but for two years has averaged nothing and hasn't scored a ODI hundred in years and then you have the cow corner brigade. Chuck Virus and Neil Mac into the side and this game wouldn't be a dead rubber.

    They're tall and really hard to get away in limited overs games. On the other hand, people like Steyn who are much skiddy are much easier to hit in limited overs cricket. Tsotsobe and McKay are both people who will continue to benefit form two new balls as well IMO, as they both get quite a bit of seam movement in helpful conditions.

    Didn't Smith score a ton against Lanka last summer? Agree he struggles in this format these days though. Not sure the point of McKenzie though when Kirsten says he's trying things out. He's yesterday's man. Don't think de Kock is as bad as you think either. He hit some nice straight blows the other day.

    They were not impressed with his attitude at all.

    Wtf is with phangiso's stats. Part timer?

    About 40 wickets in about 85 matches or something at an average of 24ish and a rpo of over 6.5.

    And just to make his selection all the more laughable, his shirt number is 69.

    I've seen de Kock wear 69 before and that's his twitter number.
