I think AB will stay at 5. van Zyl at 4, Duminy at 6 and du Plessis at 7. Alviro Petersen may have to make way for Elgar/de Kock.

I really hope de Kock can get some runs for the Lions before Kallis goes. Can then move de Villiers up to four and let him relinquish the gloves.

I find it hilarious that Rossouw got Van Zyl.
De Kock is also not having a great time - but neither is any of his top order partners.
Dave Miller with a pair of hundreds too. Very happy for him.
With the bowling. de Lange, Morris and Viljoen probably kicking themselves not playing this round. Would say Birch being injured as well but he is more a Philander type.
Hendricks leading wicket-taker in Sunfoil series etc
Be mad if they turned to Kleinveldt
Good to see spin in the wickets too. Harmer, Coetsee, von Berg, Leie & Piedt all competing at the moment.
Not sure for how much longer Daryn Smit will be the preferred spinner ahead of Maharaj and Subrayen at the Dolphins but I suppose Smit's a team man and his batting form will keep him in the side and he can chip in with the odd wicket with their seamers doing so well.

Looks like Onions had a solid if unspectacular game.
How's Sigwili come along, Gaz?

Doing quite well. Made SA Schools again and should be a shoo-in for the WC squad.
Good interview with him - Player Profile: Ngazi Sigwili | School Sports News

I'm sure you aced them ! No just kidding, good luck when you get the results next month.
I didn't realise he was playing club cricket with Ntini until I read that.
Reckon the Warriors should throw Gqamane, Walters and Rabie into touch soon. Especially the latter two. Then promote Nortje, Nqweni and Sigwili to back up Parnell, Birch and Theron.
Warriors v Titans. Harmer rocking the head band. Ledge.
