    Mclaren definitely deserves his place, well played Ryan, Question is, will there be place for robbie p when duminy comes back?

    Irfan is looking more and more dangerous. Looking forward to seeing how he develops over the next few years.



    I think the best thing would be for kallis to replace him and for him to replace tsotsobe so it would be steyn, morkel, kallis, mclaren, peterson, duminy. I doubt that will happen though.
    That last ball six against New Zealand to avoid the whitewash might be exactly why we need players like Mclaren in the team. He might not be flashy and might not bowl at 150km/h (which means very little these days). We keep looking for a klusener, but i recon Mclaren has shown enough with the bat and ball to be our No.7

    imo it was stubborn team selection that cost Pakistan the series. There is no way Younis Khan should play over Umer Akmal in on odi line up. Despite all his brainfarts Umer is averaging close to 40 at a SR of 85 over the last two years while Younis has been striking at 62 with an avg of 23.Afridi one freak innings aside was a complete liability with both bat and ball.

    I don't reckon it's Robbie P vs Duminy at all. Duminy will probably take a spot from either Berhardien, Ingram or Miller. Kallis is probably down to take the place of McLaren but I wouldn't mind him taking another of one of the 3 aforementioned's places.

    That said, I'd love for Duminy to take Robbie P's place. It would be best for team balance, for mine. With Kallis and Duminy back in our top 6, there really is no excuse to be playing a bowling AR at number 7. My team would be.

    1)Smith (yes, over de Kock)
    2)Amla
    3)Ingram
    4)Kallis
    5)de Villiers
    6)Duminy
    7)Faf/Berhardien/Miller
    8)McLaren
    9)Steyn
    10)Morkel
    11)Tsotsobe

    Not quite sure who I'd have at number 7. Right now I'd possibly lean towards Miller, but I reckon if you gave it a few months I'd choose Berhardien. If we were picking for a number 6, Faf would be right up there. At number 7 I'd rather have someone like Miller who can walk in and smack from the get-go. That said, I actually wouldn't be surprised if Ingram was dropped and everyone shifted up a position, with Faf at 6 and Miller/Berhardien fighting for 7. I still back Ingram, but there could be some Warriors bias in there.

    I still have to back Smith in england though, sure he has been under pressure most of his career, but you cant deny his stats as an opener in south africa, Im sure he would average above 50 in ODI's and above 60 in tests had he played most of his career in asia.

    I'm sure no one will agree with me, but Steyn I feel has been a weakness for south africa in ODI's. I don't argue with the greatness of the man in tests, but in ODI's he is just to expensive and just doesn't add more than Kleinveldt would except for reputation, Also Kleinveldt can easily score a quick 20-30 with huge blows. Robbie P has grown dramatically as a player the last year, not a great player, but like mclaren has a lot of fight.

    My team:
    Smith
    Amla
    Kallis
    AB
    Duminy
    Faf
    Mclaren
    Pieterson
    Kleinveldt
    Morkel
    Tsotsobe

    Possibly the worst thread to dig out and make this comment on
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
