    wouldn't have thought so tbh, Pakistan would probably just crumble under the weight of runs the Saffers would score, square turners more likely IMO
    There are two colours in my head

    Definitely, bowling attack for the Saffers isn't spin at its core.

    Doubt it, especially with Duminy shaping to play as more of a spin-bowling all-rounder

    Thankfully Hafeez has been axed for the SA series and Irfan will be playing
    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

    Definitely praying for minefields. That is our only chance.

    If the wickets are like the one against England, where Ajmal can be more than a handful and the SA pace battery is somewhat negated, then I would fancy our chances

    This is probably the only series that SA could lose in the medium term.

    I think you don't want to get your hopes too high, but if the pitches suit then you never know. Need to pick up from the series against Zimbabwe. But a change is only a game away. Agree with the players your saying about too, who need a big series.

    If the pitches are as flat as they were last time it might be something they seriously look into.

    and if it is a huge turning wicket then. I am not a fan of tahir, but unfortunately I just dont see that morkel could add more to the attack there than tahir or even simon harmer.

    Then again would pakistan or the UAE risk making rank turners that break up after 2 days? really it wouldnt satisfy the ICC. would be a huge risk.

    The Pakistan and England series was played on good tracks. They weren't breaking up in 2 days.

    While I didn't watch that series, it was an extremely low scoring series want it? There were numerous scores of below 150 from both teams. Probably just **** batting though.
