    It'll be interesting to see if AB moves up to four, even if he's still holding the gloves.

    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 think he's ultimately going to have a choice between batting four or wicket keeping. I don't think he should do both in Test cricket; five's the highest I'd want the keeper the bat.

    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.

    Very funny. They've become good mates over the years with SA 'A' squad but they know deep down they're competing for the next spot after Elgar and then he gets him with his part-timers. I've seen Rilee joke about it with him on twitter too.

    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.

    Parnell five-for
    Abbott five-for
    Alexander five-for
    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.

    Copped a hammering against the Cobras last month on what looks like it could've been a pretty green deck, so it's progress.

    How's Sigwili come along, Gaz?

    Where you been , mate ? In hiding ?

    Doing quite well. Made SA Schools again and should be a shoo-in for the WC squad.

    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.

    Afridi has supposedly pulled out.

    So it looks like the Warriors and Knights will have to bring out every bit of their under-dog fighting spirit again in this comp.

    Starts with a triple header at Newlands on the 4th or 5th of Jan I think ? Should be decent entertainment.
