    Baffling considering de Kock averages 48~ something in FCC. But who opens? ABD? Since he's the only Saffer who looks competent against MJ, it would kinda make sense.

    Alternatively, they would need to axe JPD and give somebody like Ackermann a baptism of fire to open.

    Yup, Robbie P needs to be dropped for a specialist bat. Can a Saffer tell me about their best bat after the current first line-up? Can't be de Kock surely? And McLaren needs to go for a left arm pacer like Parnell, or maybe Kyle Abbot.
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Going in with both Robbie P and McLaren weakened both the batting and bowling of South Africa. Should have grabbed the fourth-best seamer irrespective of batting ability (so one of Hendricks, Abbott or McLaren), and not played Peterson. With Duminy in the side and bowling just as much and as effectively as Peterson, one of the two is surplus to requirements - and Duminy can bat (well, he's in wretched form but that's not really the point I'm making).

    McLaren was never a Test #7's arsehole, and Peterson should probably be shot for the way he faced up to Johnson (didn't see it, but apparently it was pathetic). When you're the new Ashley Giles, you have to try and contribute everywhere in your game - something he won't do in this series by the looks of things. If they really want a specialist spinner, pick Harmer at 8 and drop Duminy for a better batsman (especially if they can bowl 5 overs of medium pace per day).

    A replacement for Alviro is sorely needed as well.

    1. Smith
    2. Petersen
    3. Amla
    4. Faf
    5. ABdV
    6. Duminy
    7. de Kock +
    8. Philander
    9. Steyn
    10. Morkel
    11. McLaren/Hendricks/Abbott (adjust batting order as applicable)

    If you really want a left-armer and couldn't care less about batting ability, Beuran Hendricks

    Alviro looked out of his depth more than any RSA batsmen....... he has two 50's in his last 10 innings.

    The out-of-the-box solution would be to move ABD to open or give Colin Ackermann a go (also a useful spinner).

    Another out of the box solution would be to drop Dale Steyn and open the bowling with Mr.Prez.

    Ackermann can't even make the Warriors side at the moment.

    Is Obus Pienaar any good? Seen his name mentioned in an article. Left arm pace bowler and a decent bat, people are saying

    Prez is SA's answer to MJ after all. Good call.

    Still say my team for the dead rubber (because it would be dreaming for the second) is:

    Elgar (came good at St Georges last time - should really play there this time too, but again it's not the dead rubber just yet)
    Smith
    Amla
    Du Plessis
    De Villiers
    Van Zyl/De Kock
    Duminy
    Philander
    Abbot/Morkel/Hendricks
    Steyn
    Morkel/Hendricks/Abbott

    Has long standing back issues too, doesn't he?

    Keeping not a renowned panacea for hands or backs.

    Would love to see de Kock in (arf, arf, etc...) for Robbie P but there is an alternate keeper in the squad already, isn't there?

    Yeah, if a another keep does come in it'll probably be Tsolekile coming in for Peterson and batting eight, behind McLaren.
