    Du Plessis had filled in for de Villiers during the T20 series against New Zealand at home as well, after de Villiers cited the need for rest because of his workload, which includes wicketkeeping.

    ODI squad: AB de Villiers (capt), Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Faf du Plessis, Colin Ingram, Rory Kleinveldt, Ryan McLaren, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Robin Peterson, Aaron Phangiso, Graeme Smith, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

    Twenty20 squad: Faf du Plessis (capt), Kyle Abbott, Farhaan Behardien, Henry Davids, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, Rory Kleinveldt, Ryan McLaren, David Miller, Chris Morris, Justin Ontong, Robbie Peterson, Aaron Phangiso, Lonwabo Tsotsobe
    Pakistan will win Odi series.
    Twenty-over cricket can be “boring”. It has grown up. It takes concentration. It is no longer a game for the post-literate generation. They need the distractions, the loud music to disguise the boredom. They never warned you about that.

    de Kock is unlucky to miss out on the Odis when the awful Ingram gets a gig. Lack of adventure in their selection. And Ontong is still magically hanging around,.

    I would have liked to have seen de Kock instead of Ingram or Behardien too but I can understand only playing Quinton in the T20s for now. He seemed a bit rash in the ODIs against NZ.

    Also, I wanted Morris in the squad in the absence of Kallis. Surely Morris is a better all-round option going forward than McLaren.

    Smith
    Amla
    Ingram
    AB
    du Plessis
    Miller
    McLaren
    Peterson
    Steyn/Morkel
    Kleinveldt
    Tsotsobe

    I'd imagine that's the line-up we'll field. Doesn't look great tbh.

    Kallis injured his calf in the optional practise session. Abbot making his debut. SA won the toss and will bat first.

    Batsmen injured and they bring in a bowler?

    You sure they won't bring Rudolph in instead?

    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

    yep, it's confirmed.

    I assume that Faf will bat at 4.

    looks like a nice straight shoot out for the resereve seamer position between Abbot and Kleinfeldt.

    So is the new guy any good?

    Says medium pace on cricinfo, interesting choice if he is only that quick when you already have philander at a similar pace in the side.

    He has put his hand during our 4 day season. was the leading wicket taker ( averaged 15). So his call up is well deserved IMO.

    All you can ask of your domestic players is to perform at franchise level and he has done that. Glad to see that the selectors are rewarding good performances from domestic cricket.

    South Africa couldn’t call up a replacement batsman as there is no franchise cricket occurring in the area. If the Lions (Jo’Burg) were playing at home tonight, then one of their guys could make the short trip up and play, most likely de Kock but the Lions are in Natal and the Titans (Pretoria franchise) in Eastern Province.

    They could have gone and called up Stephen Cook, he is currently playing amateur cricket with Gauteng at the Wanderers against Rory Kleinveldt's brother but that would be really left field.
