    Different year Pitch conditions can change drastically from the norm if you're doctoring them to favour your spinner if you see unusual climatic conditions.

    Call it what you want, but South Africa have lost their last three tests there with opposition spinners doing most of the damage.

    Pakistan batting line-up is in serious need of an overhaul. No-one apart from Younis and Misbah are in form / good enough (take your pick). If they're being undone by Chatara, Vitori and Panyangara on pretty reasonable wickets, what chance have they against Steyn, Morkel and Philander?

    Are they playing any cricket between now and the first test?

    Yeah, Duminy hasn't been able to establish his place in the Test team. He was back in form before the injury though. Scored a 100 in NZ and a very important 60 in the Lord's Test.

    Hope that Elgar 268 on the road against Aus A hasn't influenced the selectors too much, just doesn't seem ready for Test cricket atm.

    Yeah, Elgar doesn't look that impressive.

    Bingo
    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

    Biased, on both counts too. For Pakistan's standard, or in my mind what I think their standard is they are far below where they should be. For Zimbabwe to beat Pakistan even though it wasn't a big win is still a long way above where they should be. That's not to say that Zimbabwe are a better side on average but I think Pakistan have some issues like WI and Aus atm. Both capable of a good test or even series but not what I'd expect of them
    Current Favourite XI 1. Cook 2. Gayle 3. Sangakarra 4. Clarke* 5. Chanderpaul 6. Rahane 7. De Kock+ 8. Neesham 9. Johnson 10. Herath 11. Steyn

    Zimbabwe aren't as good as Pakistan, but I would generally expect more from Pakistan as they have had so many great players/teams compared to Zimbabwe.

    EDIT so Zimbabwe are in more trouble.

    We can expect absolute roads now thanks to Pakistan's batting display in Zimbabwe.
